We want to travel to UK early December after there lockdown finishes. Could we get a suitable Covid test in Nerja which would cover us to travel to England. Also is it possible to get a flu jab here thanks

Flu vaccine is widely available in Spain.

There's also a number of ways to get a Covid-19 test, ask your local clinic for the one they recommend.

Be careful relying on the above information.  I have a friend who was unable to get the flu medicine from anywhere around our municipality.  Al the Pharmacies were out.  She did get it from a Clinic.  If you are over 55 its free but you need a Spanish Health card for that.  Anyone else, who knows the possibilities?  Best to check with your own health care provider.

Hi you do not need a Covid test to gain access to the UK but at the moment you will need to self isolate for 14 days on arrivbut there is talk of reducing that to a week if you take a test after you arrive but that is not the case as yet 

Best advice consult uk FCO web page 

Good luck
