The majority of people can safely receive the flu vaccination.
However, if you have had a confirmed anaphylactic reaction to a previous flu vaccination or an allergic reaction to any component of the vaccine (including gentamicin, polymyxin and neomycin) you will not be offered the jab.
Additionally, the vaccines are prepared in hens’ eggs and should not be given to individuals with a known allergy to chicken or egg products.
You will not be vaccinated if you are ill with a fever on the day of vaccination.
Pregnant women are eligible for a free flu vaccination from their GP and need to have their flu jab from their GP. It is our policy at Flu Xpress Ltd NOT to offer the vaccination to pregnant women.
Other employees may be eligible for a free flu jab, such as asthmatics, diabetics and over 65’s.
