Asda launches drive-through flu jab service

Asda fascia

Asda has launched an NHS drive-through flu jab service for eligible people at 13 of its UK stores.

The supermarket giant is using excess space in its car parks to offer jabs to people who are nervous about visiting their GP or pharmacies during the coronavirus pandemic.

Anyone who is ordinarily entitled to flu jabs, such as the elderly or pregnant women, will be given them free of charge, while anyone else will be charged £8. Asda said that cost represents the cheapest price on the market.

Customers must pre-book a time slot and will be given a dedicated parking spot upon arrival.
