Supermarket giant Asda has announced that they have launched a “free” NHS drive-through flu jab service for those who are eligible at 13 sites across the UK.
Those who are regarded as non-venerable will pay just £8, which is the cheapest on the market according to Asda, and the elderly, frontline NHS staff and pregnant woman will get the service for free.
Maq Din, lead pharmacist at Asda Pharmacy said, “The sad truth is that there is an increased mortality risk if you catch Covid-19 when you already have the flu.
“We are putting a number of measures in place at our drive-through flu jab centres , so patients can be assured that it is safe to visit – and they won’t even need to leave their car to get a jab.”
Customers must pre-book and will be provided a time slot.
Accrington; Bodmin; Eastbourne; Gosport; Hartlepool; Hyde; Nuneaton; Old Kent Road (London); Oldbury; Pilsworth; Sheffield; South Shields and Wakefield Durkar have the drive-through flu jab service.
