As the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) is felt across the UK and in many other parts of the world, you may have questions about how it could affect your health, travel and business.

Because you want the team to be flu-free


We’ve been providing businesses in the UK with vaccinations for over a decade.

Our flu vaccination programmes are designed to help protect your workforce against the spread of flu, helping to maintain your business’s productivity during the flu season.

There are two ways to get vaccinated

How to book your vaccination programme


We’ll get back to you with confirmation of the cost and post your vouchers (if applicable) to you.

By September, we hope to be running our yearly flu programme as usual, so we’re taking preliminary bookings. Should anything change, we’ll get in touch to talk through alternative arrangements as soon as possible.

For now, we hope you and your people are staying safe in these uncertain times.

Please note: the flu vaccine doesn’t cover the strains of coronavirus (COVID-19).

What happens on the day?

Morning flu sessions start at 9am in London and 9.30am outside of London. Afternoon sessions start approximately 1.30pm and finish at 5.30pm.

Here’s a selection of questions and answers that we’ve already helped our customers with.

70 employees can be seen in a half day clinic, which last 3.75 hours (3.5 hours + 15 minute break)
140 employees can be seen in a full day session, which lasts 8 hours (7 hours + 2 X 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch)

London sessions will start at 9am (nurse arrival time 8.15am), outside London sessions will start at 9.30am (nurse arrival time 8.45am).

If the client has booked an afternoon half day session, this will start at 1.30pm (nurse arrival time 12.45pm).

We ask clients to estimate the number of vaccines, when completing the booking form. The organiser will communicate with the employees and will have an exact quantity of vaccines required a few days in advance. Bupa will call the site to confirm the amount required, once the number has been confirmed we’ll send the exact quantity. We do charge for the number sent, as the interruption to the cool storage of vaccines means they can't be used again.

We send an online toolkit that contains launch materials, communication material, marketing material, medical documentation, posters and checklists. This will ease the administration required for the flu programme.

The online booking system is a specific tool to help companies/employees scheduling appointments. This helps to make sure each employee is booking their own appointment at a suitable time to the site they are based. They’ll receive a confirmation email to confirm registration and their appointment, this includes the room details of the clinic. The day before the clinic, an email is sent to the site contact, with the scheduled consent form.

Couriers will deliver on the mornings – Monday and Tuesday (before 9am). All other working days the equipment will be delivered the day before.

Customer to complete booking form or send an email to the mailbox if they’ve already completed the form.

We’ll post the vouchers out within two days of confirmation. Once posted, we’ll email to confirm they’ve been dispatched.

There’s no minimum order for vouchers and no postage charge.


Please note vouchers are non-refundable.
