  • Nearly £20 at Boots I believe, so a worthwhile saving. 😊

    I got all excited thinking I could get it cheaper than Boots but it's only available around London and the nearest to me is 235 miles away

    Did you enter your postcode and try to book an appointment? I'm in NI, my closest is Derry and way too far, but it was also showing me places in Scotland. Searching for Birmingham, Norwich and Plymouth also came up with many options... So you might not have a walk-in option, but it seems like you could get an appointment closer to you.

    Edit: After looking at walk-ins, it just starts on London (for me, at least) and searching pretty much anywhere outside of NI for a location with a pharmacy leads to lots of options. They don't have a pharmacy attached in NI (outside of Derry), so I'm guessing that's why there's no cheap jabs here. 

    I just had mine from the NHS, Boots had convenient appointment times for my partner vs the slightly cheaper local chemist, so we're using them - I'd pay £20 to immediately stop the flu if I had it, so it seems reasonable enough to pay that much to (hopefully) prevent it.
