Flu training now available

You can now book face-to-face practical training or complete online refresher flu vaccination training with Careway.


We know that people appreciate being able to visit their local pharmacy to get their flu jab. It’s more convenient and customers can visit in their own time. We are pleased to offer flu vaccination training with a choice of practical or online refresher training dependent on your needs.


This year we are partnering with MASTA to deliver your vaccination training. MASTA specialise in vaccinations and have been at the forefront of this complex and constantly evolving area of healthcare for over 30 years.
