Does that mean that the immune system has been kicked?  I was told that it isn't a live vaccine so one can't get 'flu.  However, the medical profession as so adamant that they didn't believe my MinL who was very ill - 3 times after it!  Co-incidence.  Well no, actually.

I don't know - I heard something on the radio but didn't listen properly, about why some people feel a bit ill.  They said it is just the effects of your immune system reacting and not that you have an illness.

The last time I had flu, I had to sleep a lot. Couldn't stay upright. I remember wondering if I would wake up again.   So I thought feeling a bit off with the vaccine was probably worthwhile.

I had 'flu twice.  In 1988 and 89, exactly 12 months apart other than 1 day.  Both times I went to bed fine, work aching all over, sensitive to light, could't lift my head from the pillow ....... had to be carried for the bathroom for 3 days  :-\.  Lots of anadin and liquids.  Felt weak for 5 days after, didn't get dressed.  I knew it was 'flu.  Any1 who walks around thinking that they have 'flu, hasn't.  It is said that putting a fiver on the bedroom floor, someone with 'flu wouldn't even notice let alone try to reach it!

Yes I think I got off lightly with mine, although it took a good month to recover properly.

Fiver on the floor  ;D If it had been fifty I wouldn't have bothered  :o

Hello ladies.

I have managed to book a flu jab at last! This will be my first time lol. 

I went to a pharmacy and at 64 I was expecting to pay but it seems they are free to the over fifties as of 1st December.

Take care ladies.

Hi

I’ve booked mine for Friday morning. Not really sure I want it, as having that, then the COVID one looming, seems a bit much.

Just to be aware :o


People with a history of significant allergic reactions should not have the Covid vaccine, the medicines regulator has warned, after two NHS workers experienced symptoms on Wednesday.

I've just been reading that. I have to have the egg-free flu vaccine and I have allergies to some antibiotics   :-\

There will probably be several with reactions ......... as it's C-19 we need to be aware.  MayB it happens with the 'flu vaccine but it doesn't make headline news?

It is unlikely that the populous will be in line for any of the C-19 vaccines that come on line for months so having the 'flu jab shouldn't interact .  One can delay it if offered after all. 

My arm ached last night and I thought it would be stiff today but thus far, OK.  The site itches though .
