Whilst these wont protect against swine flu theyll certainly protect against most common forms of flu.

Free at your local GP surgery for all over 65's and "At Risk" patients

It is also likely when the surgery have vaccinated the all the above patients there will be some spare left over for people who dont fall into these catagories.

but still a good "deal" considering what they originally are priced at!

Maybe those who have read the various medical reports that say you shouldnt take these kinds of shots unless you are in an at risk group.

You mean the same ones who read the MMR reports and are now suffering epidemics of measles unnecessarily.;-)
#11
Should be free in my opinion... and so should going to the dentist for necessary check ups and dental work. All the taxes we pay.....
#12
Cold, those who need it will get it for free fromtheir GP.
#13
£4 each would be a great offer, but I've just phoned my nearest ASDA pharmacy in Wallington and they said they're not doing it. Of course it's possible that they just haven't been told yet - what's the source?

Profiteering from scaremongering. Cold.

Enjoy your thimerosal, (a mercury derivative), Ethylene glycol (better known as anti-freeze) and another chemical called phenol and, animal viruses in your 'flu jab'.... :thinking:

As swampy said, Profiteering from scaremongering. Cold.
#17
If there was a cold jab, I'd take that. I never seem to recover from one until Spring arrives.
#18
Actually the normal flu jab may protect against swine flu http://www.reuters.com/article/governmentFilingsNews/idUSN0644527820091006

1) Rough calculation - Apparently there is less than <= 25µg thimerosal/jab - just under half that 9 (by weight) would be mercury, so you'd have no more than 12.4µg of mercury in a shot which is equivalent to 12.7g of swordfish or 35g of tinned tuna (a quarter of a can). Apparently this is a similar amount to that emitted by each mercury amalgam filling every day. Mercury is regularly excreted from the body.
2) Ethylene glycol - the lowest recorded lethal dose of this would be about 60ml of pure chemical. The molecule would be broken down by the body relatively quickly.
3) Phenol - this is a rather dangerous substance when pure, but when diluted it isn't too bad (it is in Dettol)

im in the at risk group and id never have this jab again.
my GP is offering the flu jab to everyone no matter how old or what illnesses you have, i know of at least 8 GP's who are doing this in my area so you might want to check first with your own gp.
also just a thought if you buy this is asda who gives you the jab???? are they trained to give the jab??


I've never been offered it and I've been down with Flu twice in the past 3 years and it wasn't nice (felt like I was on death's door for at least 7 days each time).

I had mine a couple of weeks ago; Asda have a trained nurse there to do the shot, and insist that you stick around for at least 10 minutes after it.
#24
Bargain 2 for 1 :thumbsup:
#25
I wouldn't get this if you paid me. Again only necessary for the at risk groups. Most people who take this jab will incur a greater risk of contracting flu immediately afterwards and others who haven't had it are more likely to contract it off those who have. Not to forget the fact the jab is made up of strains from LAST years flu NOT this years, which pretty much renders it useless.
#26
I just had my flu jab today FOC :)
#27
I get flu vac every year now, had full flu and was in bed hot/cold for 4 days new years eve 2000, saw the new millenium in dieing in bed.
NHS workers get it free, as we come in contact with lots of you ill people :roll::whistling:
#28
Great two for one, I'm going to ask to have both shots injected in to my fillings. No pain no gain as they say.

You do have to wonder how come Tony Blair never got his kids vaccinated ?

No not really, as the real argument was the vaccine safe? This argument's answer is with the science, not with Mr Blair and his kids, and it proofed that the MMR jab is safe. A good book to read on this topic and media misreporting science is bad science by Ben Goldacre.

You can't compare ingesting chemicals to directly injecting them into your bloodstream.

All I'd say is do the research and make up your own mind, it's interesting how many health professionals are refusing this vaccination.

Yes you can, but it is still below the threshold so it will not cause any damage to your body any way it enters your body.

This is a argument from authority, have you got any evidence or data to show why people should not take this vaccine?

It would be interesting to see how many doctors & nurses were refusing the vaccine. Can you post the independent survey results along with sample size & methodology?

Looks like some good reviews, I'll put it on my xmas list.

There are many instances science proving dangerous drugs as safe, the most obvious being thalidomide. I'd rather have a day in bed with the flu and build up natural immunity than take a risk especially as there is a strong argument that flu jabs are not effective.

Yes there have been times science proving dangerous drugs as safe but guess what deemed them to be dangerous in the end; science. Also you say that having the flu will build up your natural immunity these shows a lack of understanding how the vaccine work. The flu vaccine will also build up your natural immunity. The flu jab was 75% affect 05-06 and 06-07 so not as effective as vaccine still pretty darn good if you ask me.

That's interesting logic, but pretty irrelevant. My understanding is that the vaccine protects you from existing strains only, not the new strains as the mutate.

lol, if only life were that easy !

A quick google bring back this article

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/swine-flu/6087782/Swine-flu-Doctors-who-refuse-vaccine-putting-patients-at-risk.html

50% of doctors and 33% of nurses say they are not planning to take the vaccine.

As I said in my first post, it's interesting.

How do you think you would feel if you Injected five pints of Stella directly into your bloodstream ?

It may be an authority issue, but it may also be real health concerns. I not suggesting people don't take the vaccine, I'm just suggesting people do some research and make an informed decision. How could that ever be a bad thing ?

Out of 16 years of the 19 years, before 2007, the flu vaccine has been a good match for the circulating strains. So not a exact match but closer to help you develop a resistance to it and stops you getting the flu.

Making a informed decision is a good thing. But as a skeptic i know there is a lot of false information epically regarding vaccines which is not accurate. Spread around by the national media, celebrities like Jenny McCarthy and people who dislike science and evidence based medicine. This can easily confuse a lot of good people who only want what is best for them and their loved ones. Just look at the MMR media hoax. Here is a good blog entry about fear mongering about the swine flu vaccine. http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/?p=1296

And now i am off to bed.
