Longest-standing independent provider of flu jabs to deliver private COVID vaccines

Doctorcall, a leading private provider of flu vaccinations, has today announced that it will be delivering private COVID vaccinations with the campaign beginning in Spring 2024. It will only administer authorised and effective COVID-19 vaccines – the cost will be set at £90 a vaccine.

Since 1989, Doctorcall has been providing private flu vaccinations for companies of all shapes and sizes, right across the United Kingdom. It will be expanding that programme, offering in addition the opportunity for companies to deliver COVID vaccinations to employees who decide to participate.

 Doctorcall Medical Director Dr Charles Levinson commented:

“For decades, organisations have benefitted from offering private flu vaccinations to employees not eligible for an NHS vaccination, or who find it more convenient to have it administered whilst at work. It is fantastic news that the same service will now be available with COVID vaccinations – for both corporate clients and individual patients.”

“Understandably, supply was initially restricted to the NHS due to a shortage throughout the pandemic. That has changed, and it is entirely right that individuals and organisations are given the choice as to whether they wish to privately purchase a COVID vaccination.”

“Corporate vaccination services benefit the individual, the company, and wider society, reducing illness, and therefore unplanned absenteeism. All of the same advantages from our flu programme can be applied to COVID, with both vaccines available to be administered at the same time. Our market research has shown this will be particularly popular for companies with business-critical employees.”

“The vaccination programme, for both flu and COVID, is a fully managed service – including nurses, the vaccines, relevant supplies and more all delivered in the workplace. Making it as simple and convenient as possible for employees to take up the offer. Uniquely, there is also a follow-up GP appointment included, for any staff concerned about potential after-effects.”

“We were first to market with large-scale flu vaccinations; COVID is no different – Doctorcall has been at the forefront of vaccination campaigns in the independent healthcare sector for over three decades, and we intend to build on that reputation further with the introduction of a private COVID vaccination service.”
