Flu bus in partnership with The Co-op

We've partnered up with Co-op stores across England to offer flu vaccines to more people this season.

Book your vaccine at the flu bus

Flu is highly contagious and spreads easily through the winter months, so to meet the demand for the flu vaccine this season, we've teamed up with The Co-op to make getting the vaccine easier for you. The flu bus is a fully-equipped medical health clinic, staffed by our expert pharmacists and will be visiting 31 different stores across England from October 2021.

We have limited walk-in availability so to secure your jab, please book your appointment now.

Do I need to book to get vaccinated at a Well bus?

We suggest booking your appointment in advance to avoid disappointment as the flu vaccine will be in high demand. Our bus can only accommodate a certain number of people each day and our time at each site will be limited.

If you see our bus parked up at your local Co-op, do come and see if we can fit you in as we will be taking walk-in patients, if there is availability. However, we will prioritise those who have booked as there will be a limited amount of vaccine in stock each day.

To book online, search for a a site near you in our booking system – just type in your area and suggested sites will pop up if we’re visiting a store near you. Select a site with 'Co-op' in the name to make sure you're booking in at our bus and not a normal Well pharmacy.

Do I need to pay for my flu vaccination?

If you pay for your flu vaccine, it costs £14.50. You can pay online when booking your appointment.

If you’re eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination you can let us know when booking your appointment and you won’t be charged. Remember to bring some evidence with you to your appointment that shows you’re eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination, like proof of age or a reminder letter or text message. If you are unable to provide evidence on the day of your vaccination, you will be charged £14.50.

Walk-in patients who pay for their vaccine can do so at the bus. Please note, we can only accept card payment.

Am I eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination?

Find out if you’re eligible for a free flu vaccination on the NHS website. If you’re booking on behalf of someone under 18, they won’t be eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination with Well.

What if the flu bus isn’t coming to my area?

You can still book a flu vaccination with us at one of our community pharmacies, find your local Well pharmacy.

What safety and accessibility measures will be in place at the bus?

Due to ongoing COVID-19 safety measures, we ask you to please wear a face covering inside the bus, unless you are exempt. Our team will also be wearing face coverings. There will be a limited amount of people allowed in the bus and it will be kept well ventilated. Please do not visit the bus if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, even if your symptoms are mild. The bus is also wheelchair accessible.

More information

Why do I need a flu jab every year?

The virus that causes flu rapidly mutates and evolves into new strains. Each year, experts from organisations like the World Health Organization identify which strains pose the greatest risk in the upcoming flu season, and a vaccine is developed to protect against those strains before each flu season starts.
