Boots winter flu jab: How to get vaccinated – will it protect against coronavirus?

The health chain has also advised that customers bring their own pen to complete any essential paperwork and they will be asked not to speak to the pharmacist during the actual vaccination to minimise the risk of droplet spreading.

If the consultation room is small, it’s possible the pharmacist will ask to keep the door open during the appointment.

Why now?

As Marc Donovan, Chief Pharmacist at Boots explained, the COVID-19 pandemic has underlined the importance of maintaining a healthy immune system.

“Although the flu vaccination does not prevent Coronavirus in any way, both of these viruses have an impact on the respiratory system so if you can prevent the flu, it can be a huge benefit to your overall health including your immunity system,” he said in a statement earlier today.
