Flu Vaccine for Europe for December 2018

I am traveling to the UK for Christmas and would like to get a flu shot before I go. Is the vaccine that is currently being used in Europe available in Johannesburg yet and if so, where could I go to get it?

Hi there
The flu vaccine that is currently being used in the northern hemisphere will only be available to us for our next flu season, which is usually in March/April next year. If you have not yet had the flu vaccine for this flu season, then I would advise you to have it done. Enjoy Christmas in the UK!
