About Flu

Flu is caused by influenza viruses, which have a remarkable ability to change their properties over time in order to evade our immune defences.  Flu occurs in seasonal epidemics every winter, and less frequently, in more serious global epidemics (pandemics) – as new strains appear and when the number of people susceptible to them becomes large enough.

Is flu dangerous?

Flu can be a mild illness, and for the majority it is no more than an inconvenience.  However, it does attack the lungs and air passages and is capable of causing very serious complications, and even death.

We have good vaccines to protect the most vulnerable people – vaccinations protect millions of people around the world every year.

How to book your flu jab?

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve altered the way to run our flu clinics.

In past years, we have operated a walk-in flu clinic at Fleet Street Clinic. However, this year, to ensure social distancing we will be encouraging everyone to make an appointment via our online booking system. Please note, we will still be operating from Fleet Street Clinic and look forward to seeing you for your annual flu jab.

Protect yourself, your loved one and your community from flu this year with a flu jab.

Why vaccinate against flu?

Vaccine programmes tend to target those most likely to suffer serious ill health as a result. But increasing numbers of people opt for vaccination not just to avoid complications, but also as a way of protecting their productivity and good health, rather than leaving the prospect of an unpleasant, debilitating infection purely to chance.

Flu is fascinating subject, and at the Fleet Street Clinic, we have been involved in many different aspects for two decades:

  • We are experts in Travel Medicine, and the global spread of flu viruses is closely linked to international travel;
  • We specialise in vaccines, and have given hundreds of thousands of doses safely;
  • Our clients in the news industry have relied on us to protect their staff, during global coverage of bird flu, swine flu and flu outbreaks around the world;
  • We have helped large numbers of businesses with occupational health and business continuity issues;
  • We have accumulated vast experience in dealing with flu-related issues, and are commonly consulted as experts;
  • With our experience of mass vaccination campaigns, we have helped provide expertise to the NHS, vaccinating vulnerable groups during the swine flu outbreak;
  • In addition to our own practical experience, we have developed a suite of bespoke project management tools to help simplify the task of running even the most complex vaccination campaign.
