Book a Flu Vaccination Kent, Longfield, and Bexley
The flu is a common viral infection that can make you feel very unwell.
Spread by droplets from coughs and sneezes, the flu is a common illness that can stop you in your tracks. It’s more severe than a common cold and the symptoms usually come on very quickly.
Flu symptoms can last up to a week or more and you might find you’re unable to get out of bed until they subside.
Flu symptoms include:
- A high fever of 38C or above
- A dry or chesty cough
- Feeling tired and weak
- Muscle aches and pains
The Flu Vaccine
The effective flu vaccine is available for areas Dartford and Gravesend from Intrigue Health.
Since flu strains change and evolve, you’ll need to get a new jab each year. The flu is more common in autumn and winter, but you can catch it any time of the year so you should get the jab as soon as you’re able.
Vaccination is free through the NHS for people who:
- Are over the age of 65
- Are pregnant
- Have certain underlying health conditions
The flu vaccine is also available privately for anyone who isn’t eligible for a free one through the NHS. Intrigue Health offers convenient walk in service for Private patients, making it easy to protect yourself from the miserable symptoms of the flu.
