Well – I've just had the swine flu jab…..
Why did you have the flu jab Doc?
Im guessing you are young and fit and would survive a bit of a cold so why have some rushed through vaccine that HMG have been pushing NHS managers to inflict on their staff?
Whats wrong with swine flu if youre young other than a few days off sick surfing porn and buying things from Wiggle?Posted 8 years ago
I'm willing to lose an eye and have alternate fingers fall off for what probably is a rushed out jab, but don't want to bring the nastyness home to my lovely lady and unborn child!
I wouldn't have had it otherwise – 2 weeks off work shamizzle – bonus!

Am I wrong to decline both seasonal and H1N1 jabs? Am in high risk group (Type 1 diabetes) and have never suffered from colds/flus in general and other members of my family that have had the seasonal jab in the past and were similar to me in not suffering then went on to spend every winter sniffling, coughing and sneezing.Posted 8 years agogonefishinMember

Well I'd say yes, although I am wholly unqualified to make such an assessment. Why would the fact that you have never had the 'flu (the cold is a totally different virus) mean that you won't get this 'flu? It is highly unlikely that you have any immunity to this variant of the virus. Whilst it is true to say that in most people who contract the 'flu will be fine some do die and it is those people with underlying conditions that are likely to suffer more.
This 'flu vaccine is as safe as all the others and has gone through the same amount of testing that the 'flu vaccine normally goes through. Were I to be offered it, which is unlikely given my personal circumstances, then I'd take it.Posted 8 years agorOcKeTdOgSubscriber

out of interest is your pregnant wife going to have the jab, as pregnant women are suppose to be the first
mine is. Possibly today.
