“We know that this year, our customers have been more conscious than ever about protecting the health of themselves and their families, and protecting against flu has been front of mind for many of us.
“As a result, we have seen more people than ever booking early to get their flu vaccinations, and due to the level of demand and limited stock that we have available, we made the decision to pause taking any new bookings for our private and NHS under 65s Flu Vaccination Services earlier this week.
“Since then, we have been closely monitoring our stock levels of the vaccination recommended by the NHS for patients aged 65 and over, and can confirm that today we have also closed for new bookings for these vaccinations too. This is to make sure we can vaccinate the patients who have already booked their appointment with us.”

- Both private and NHS customers will be able to register for more information on boots.com via a ‘register your interest’ page to be alerted on any updates on our flu vaccination service
- Flu vaccinations are ordered around a year in advance usually, last year, we increased our order by around 20%, but the levels of demand have been unprecedented
