Book your free winter flu jab


September 1st, 2021

We want to support all our employees to stay fit and healthy as we move into the colder days and darker nights of winter.

Whilst the risks from coronavirus continue, we all need to take a bit of extra care about our health and accessing a flu jab may be a step you wish to take this year (whether or not you have done so previously).

Accessing a flu vaccination

Free NHS Flu Vaccination

If you are eligible for a free NHS flu jab please get in touch with your GP Surgery as soon as possible to arrange for this. This now includes those aged over 50. Details about who is eligible can be found on the NHS Flu Vaccination pages.

You will normally be able to get an appointment which is outside of your working hours.  However, if this is not possible, for the winter 21/22 season, you may take reasonable paid time-off in agreement with your line manager to enable you time to have the vaccination.

Private Flu Vaccinations – Boots Flu Voucher

To help protect our colleagues, the university will be making Boots Flu Jab vouchers available free of charge to all employees who have been unable to/are not eligible to get the free NHS vaccination via their GP. The Boots vouchers can be used at participating Boots stores. Pre-booking is required.

To request a voucher please fill in the form using the button below and you will be emailed a voucher to your University of Nottingham email address.

If you are an Operations and Facilities colleague and have limited access to email we will be holding on site drop in sessions to enable you to collect a voucher, please see the FAQ’s for details.

Once you have received your voucher you will be able to book your flu vaccination using the Boots Winter Flu Jab website.

The vouchers expire on Monday 31 January 2022 – so people are encouraged to request their voucher before the end of December 2021 to allow time for Boots to book an appointment.

For further information please see our list of frequently asked questions.
