Superdrug supporting the NHS vaccination programme

Superdrug are supporting the NHS with the roll out of the biggest vaccination programme in its history, with their highly trained pharmacists and nurses using their clinical expertise to deliver the vaccine. Their COVID-19 vaccination service is by appointment only, via the NHS booking system (please scroll down for important information about appointments for the over 65s).

Their Bristol Shopping Quarter store in Broadmead is one of several Superdrug sites around the country to support the vaccination programme, including their Basingstoke, Cambridge Sydney Street, Guildford, Leeds Merrion, and Manchester Piccadilly pharmacies.

The COVID-19 Vaccination service is by appointment only via the NHS booking system.

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus. The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine, normally by letter. It’s important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then. Letters are being sent out every week so you might not get your letter straight away. For more information please see: nhs.uk/covid-vaccination.

Superdrug offers the most comprehensive suite of COVID-19 services on the high street and has supported the public from the start of the pandemic. They were the first to introduce COVID-19 antibody testing which is available both as an at-home service through a finger prick sample, and as a healthcare professional led service in its Health clinics. They have also expanded their services with a Fit to Fly PCR test.
