Free local flu jabs
Midcounties Cooperative has announced free flu jabs for all members, whether entitled to a free NHS vaccination or not:
"From 6th October 2017 until 30th November - We will be giving our Members FREE Flu vaccinations when undertaken in a Midcounties Co-operative Pharmacy or Healthcare branch.
With NHS bosses warning about potential high flu levels and other countries currently experiencing their worst flu season in years, it's time to be prepared this winter. Protecting yourself against the flu has never been so important!
This offer applies to ALL members - whether eligible for a free NHS Vaccination or not."
The Charlbury pharmacy already offers free NHS flu jabs to anyone entitled to them, not only Coop members. This means that Charlbury residents registered with a doctor in Chipping Norton do not need to travel to Chippy for their jab.
The service is available weekdays during opening hours, but not between 1 and 1.30.
