If eligible, you can register to receive your Free NHS Flu Jab right now in Ashington, Morpeth, or Pegswood through the link below. You'll also be supporting local, independent community pharmacy.
Our community pharmacy sites (Wellway Morpeth, Wellway Pegswood, Central Ashington) have been allocated Flu Vaccines to use, but we don't yet have confirmation on exactly when these will arrive. Once this has been confirmed, everyone who has registered will be linked to our booking system, to book their appointment, at the earliest opportunity.
Registering will help us foresee demand at our sites, and streamline the process for rolling out jabs to those eligible. Thank you for supporting our local pharmacies.

Our team have been working hard to plan for and implement our 2021 Flu Vaccination Service across our sites. This vaccination is currently available to those eligible for free through the NHS, and may, later in the campaign, be available privately for those not currently eligible through the NHS offer. Please continue reading to find out more about the vaccine, why it's important, and how to register and receive this through us.
There's a big emphasis on receiving a flu vaccination this year, especially if you're eligible to receive one for free through the NHS. That's because this year, it's important we can keep as many people as safe as possible, and ensure we don't overwhelm NHS and healthcare infrastructure during the COVID crisis. Flu vaccines are rigorously tested, and are safe and effective. Please, protect yourself and others, and get vaccinated.
We have carefully reviewed and implemented guidance to allow for enhanced social distancing, providing a fully COVID-secure, safe environment for receiving your Flu Vaccinations across our sites. We can assure patients that receiving their jab will be stress-free, and safe for themselves and our staff members.
Our vaccinations are delivered by our expert team of pharmacists and healthcare professionals, who receive specialist training in issuing vaccinations, and are experienced in issuing them. Our staff members will wear necessary PPE (personal protective equipment) to ensure the administration of the vaccine is safe and comfortable for you.
A Flu Vaccination gives you the best possible protection against seasonal Influenza. The NHS recommends certain groups of people receive this vaccination annually, and so offer this vaccine to them free of charge.
If you fall within one of these categories, you can receive your Free NHS Flu Vaccine through our pharmacies:
If you've received a letter from the NHS instructing you to get your free NHS Flu Jab, you'll definitely be eligible for a free vaccination at our pharmacies.
You can register for your Free NHS Flu Vaccine with our pharmacy via the form linked on this page.

*Health Conditions eligible for a free NHS Flu Vaccination: Chronic (long term) respiratory disease, such as severe asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or bronchitis.

Our Wellway Pharmacy Morpeth COVID-19 Vaccination Site has been approved to administer COVID-19 Booster Vaccines.
We are finalising our plans to administer a 3rd COVID Vaccine dose of Pfizer-BioNTech to all aged over 50, those clinically vulnerable, or Health and Social Care Workers, 6 months after their second dose, from 20th September 2021.
Further updates will be shared in due course to our COVID-19 Vaccination Webpage.
Our pharmacies are working to prioritise Flu Vaccinations in terms of vulnerability and necessity for a vaccine. We are therefore not currently offering Private Flu Vaccinations through our pharmacies, as we focus on those in the most at-risk groups, who will be eligible for an NHS Flu Jab.
Please continue to monitor our website and social media platforms as the season progresses — we may begin to offer private vaccination later in the year, once priority cohorts have been reached.
If you have any queries at all, don't hesitate to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're accepting registrations to receive NHS Flu Vaccinations at our pharmacies. Please follow our guide below to receive yours.
A step-by-step guide:
