- Asda’s flu jab remains the cheapest on the market at only £4.98
- Customers can take advantage of the new price throughout the winter season and up until 31st March 2023
- Asda Pharmacy also offers free flu jabs to anyone who qualifies through the NHS.
With the country in flu season and customers looking to save money where they can, Asda has announced that it has halved the cost of its flu jab. People that book their flu jab at an Asda Pharmacy can now receive the vaccine for just £4.98, making it the cheapest on the market – at a crucial time in the winter season when cases are high.
Asda is encouraging those who haven’t yet had their flu jab to book an appointment at one of its 254 in-store pharmacies, either online or instore.
Customers can now book a private flu jab at a cost of £4.98, less than half the price of its original price of £9.98 – up until 31st March 2023. This follows the huge success of its £1 and £2 Asda Reward cash pot incentives earlier this year.
The retailer hopes the new market leading price will encourage as many customers who haven’t yet had their flu jab to do so, ensuring the nation is as protected as possible this flu season.
Faisal Tuddy, Superintendent Pharmacist at Asda, said: “It’s so important to get your flu jab, especially if you are vulnerable or visiting family members this Christmas. At a time when we’re seeing cases of flu rise rapidly, we’re proud to be able to make this service as accessible as possible to anyone that wants it.”
Speaking of the increase in cases of flu and the importance of getting the vaccine, Doctor Kathryn Basford from Asda Online Doctor, said: "For most people, the flu is an unpleasant and inconvenient illness which can make you feel unwell and not be able to work or do your normal activities for up to a week, but for some, it can be much more severe, and even be life-threatening.
“If you don’t fall into a vulnerable group which is offered a free flu vaccine through the NHS, it’s still really important to get the vaccine to help protect those around you who you could pass on the infection to.”
To book, customers simply have to visit their in-store pharmacy team or head to the booking service available online at https://www.asda.com/about/instore/pharmacy - available up until 31st March 2023.
Appointments are available seven days a week, with a range of appointment times throughout the day.
