    Hi @MarkIngleton! Have you tried your local chemist? This isn't a complete list, but I believe places like Boots, Superdrug, Lloyds Pharmacy, and ASDA offer the flu jab. 

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into the coffee lounge :)

    Hi @MarkIngleton. Is there a Tesco near you? They are vaccinating people aged 65 years old and over. You can find more information here.

    Hmm, I'm not sure where else to suggest @MarkIngleton. Are you able to travel to a nearby town or city to see if they have a chemist with spaces open?

    Hi @MarkIngleton, I was just wondering if you have managed to find somewhere to get the flu vaccine?

    I had mine about 3 weeks ago up at the Doctor's.

    Also, about this time last year I had one, and straight away I got Pneumonia and was sick as a Parrot for about 3 months.
