// Superdrug to offer Covid-19 booster jabs across 19 stores
// The retailer joins Boots in supporting the NHS’s Covid-19 boo1
Superdrug is set to offer Covid-19 booster jabs across 19 of its stores this autumn and winter.
The health and beauty retailer joins Boots in supporting the NHS’s Covid-19 booster vaccination programme.
Those eligible for the booster jab will be contacted by the NHS and will need to reserve their appointment through the NHS national booking site.
“We’ll be supporting the NHS with the rollout of the vaccination booster programme and we’re in active discussions about how we can best help them through further pharmacy and nurse involvement,” Superdrug healthcare director Michael Henry said.
“Making the booster vaccination available on the high street increases its accessibility to the public and offers people the option of having the vaccine given to them by their local pharmacist or nurse who they know and trust.
“With the anticipated increase in vaccination services – Covid-19 boosters and a bigger flu season than normal – our Superdrug nurses and pharmacists are trained and ready to welcome patients to meet the surge in demand this autumn and winter.”
Superdrug said it was the first high street retailer to provide Covid-19 vaccinations in January and has delivered over 171,500 jabs to date.
