    I regard these jabs as like airport security - protecting against the last threat not the next - I have no issues with needles as I have to have regular blood tests, I have a theory about inverse relationship between size of the phlebotomist and the size of the subsequent bruise! (and yes even my Doctor thinks I am slightly* mad). Actually thinking back the out of the 3 people I know who had the jab last year, 2 of them contracted the new nasty strain of flu

    Any of us old giffers had the jab against pneumonia? Does seem to be worth considering . . .


    * YMMV

    Very interesting, Paul... I have similar thoughts myself, and can't help but think that the latter above, is somehow intrinsically linked with the former. I realise though, that if you suffer from some form of condition(s), and so have no other option for that reason but to pump your body full of drugs and chemicals, then there's no escaping from it.

    However, as someone who's been fortunate so far to have generally enjoyed good health, my view (and which is also that of my 86-year old father, who's still fit as a fiddle) is to take the least amount of tablets and potions as possible, because there are always side-effects, many of which can be rather unpleasant and also sometimes unpredictable.

    Regular usage of such almost always fucks you up in some way, so you end up having to deal with THAT, as well as the condition(s) that the drugs were designed to treat! Consequently, I resist taking even paracetamol for headaches, unless they're really bad (which is rare), as wherever possible, I'd rather suffer the pain than pump my system full of chemicals.

    Default Flu jab ?

    It doesnt cover u for all versions, and isnt deffo going to stop you getting a bad flu or chest infection. But it does help for 99% of folk.
    I remember being in the isolation ward with swine flu. 2 of the folk there had the flu jab but i dont think swine flu was covered.
    Of the 12 folk in the 2 isolation wards, 3 died. I was fortunate it only left me with asthma,which i never had before.

    Never had flu or a flu jab, never use hand sanitiser and mix with all kinds of vile people on a daily basis.
    Maybe I'm just lucky or maybe I have a good immune system?

    The only time I use anti-septic hand gel is when I'm travelling, and just before I eat, as often there is no convenient way to wash one's hands. Otherwise I just take my chances.

    I have annual flu jabs, as I'm over 65, but only once did I suffer side effects: a very sore arm for three days.

    I would urge everyone to have a'flu jab - especially if you are over 65 and/or have a compromised immune system.

    Last year 600 people died of the 'flu; in 2008-9 it was 13 000! (UK figs).

    'Flu is not just the common cold but worse -it's utterly debilitating for at least 3 days. To not have one when offered is selfish. We need to get the figure up to near 90% of at-risk patients for 'herd-immunity' to kick-in. Similarly, and perhaps even more important, is a measles jab. The advice I was given was that it's no good saying 'I had it in my childhood' so must be immune. One must have been infected at least twice and had the result confirmed by a path lab. One's GP's opinion based on the symptoms is no longer regarded as being good enough. Please disregard entirely the fake-news of the ignorant anti-vaccers.
