Hello all, my local Tesco instore pharmacy are doing the flu jabs for £5 good for those who missed or were not qualified for free NHS jabs, not sure if this is nationwide so if anyone could vouch for their local Tesco store it would be appreciated.

research the safety of vaccines before you get them, the H1N1 has been banned in under 5's due to convulsions and other problems!

I'd agree but not if their GP's have run out of them, my GP's surgery has run out.

I am afraid you're wrong. There are categories of entitlement to free flu jabs. They are: The elderly, the very young, and people with certain chronic illnesses e.g. severe Asthma and so on. Everyone else has to pay.

Spot on tpol. 'Everyone' is NOT 'entitled' to a free flu jab. If the medical profession think you're 'at risk' then yes you are entitled.

Why on earth would you have a flu injection when you do not need it. Better to let the body fight any infections and build up resistance. In any event, don't the superstores earn enough money?

Morbitiy cost, versus benefit greater. Dont waste your money or risk your health.

even if true, it costs the NHS far more than a fiver taking into account doctors / nurses time etc

His point being if you can comfortably afford the £5 and save the NHS potentially a lot more than do the right thing, especially at this austere time.

This is not free in my area, my mother in law works at medical centre and they only give vaccine to high risk groups.

You can buy it from occupational health for about £15, so this is hot deal.

I suggest you do more research on the risks of vaccination. The Government is now ackowledging these risks and is paying out damages.

What do you think vaccinations are?! Yes you are being injected with the infection but it is either a very weak strain or inactive. It works. Fact. Look up Edward Jenner and learn or go back to your horse and cart.

Had mine last month at ASDA for £8 , had the flu last xmas so well worth £5 or £8 in my opinion espicially as now has the swine flu vacine included as well.
#20
HOT! Paid £9.50 at Morrison's Pharmacy for the jab.

My GP refused to give me the flue jab, not even for money, sent me to Boots instead - which said they don't do it this year. oO

I suggest you do more research on the whole concept of "RISK" and of risk management.

Vaccination theory differs from the reality of the risks. In terms of risk management I did that as part of one of my degree's in NHS/Training hospitals. I am advocating a judicious approach to the risks, so I have done my resarch have you?

I have administered thousands of these over the past many years without causing harm to my patients so the benefits far outweigh the risks in my opinion. This is in fact a hot deal and it would help the NHS which we all pay for if the government were to offload this whole flu vaccine programme to the likes of tesco / asda / boots who are obviously cheaper than paying fat cat GPs in excess of £10 for simpy giving it and that doesnt include the actual cost of the vaccine as its supplied to them free. Rant over

IF - Big if here. I were to consider having a flu jab here are my options.

Phone surgery, make appt. Wait 2-3 days for said appt. Trundle off to surgery. Sit for half hour with germs from others surrounding me, have the jab and then come home.

OR out shopping, see the offer. Pay up get jab and 2 mins later in my car and on way.


Hmm. Difficult choice - I don't think.

AND I keep all the do-gooders that rant about saving the NHS funds (Which I had stolen from me over the years by the Government for a service that I very rarely use, and which is freely given to freeloading foreigners who have contributed nothing) happy.

Good result all round.

That would be true however "Debate" would imply someone having raised valid argument on both sides of an issue, there appears to be a lot of conspiracy theory vague waffle and little more!

The government has millions of swine flu jabs it couldn't con you all into taking for a disease that didn't actually pose any risk. But they really want you to take them.
Guess where they've combined them?
That's right, with the seasonal flu jab.
I wouldn't go near one of those under any circumstance.

This thread is certainly generating some heat of its own, its just not being counting in the actual deal!

If you need one, you are entitled to a free one from the NHS. Better idea - Give your £5 to charity!

Teaching your mother to suck eggs sweetie. I don't 'think' vaccinations are anything, I know exactly how they work. They have certainly rendered my thyroid gland inactive. Medical opinion (consultant level), pharmaceutical researchers and own research.....Fact.
Also why are you so angry and is there a need for the insult? Jenner died in 1823...do you see the irony of your horse and cart comment?

The "horse and cart" comment was meant to refer you back to the level humanity was at prior to the 19th century and were we would still be if we rejected all this "witchcraft". Nice to see you did look up Jenner and learnt something though :) Just angry as people who shy away from advancements and subscribe to conspiracy theories don’t just get in the way, but cost lives.

It sounds like you have had the rough end of the deal in terms of vaccinations in the past and this may have resulted in a slightly biased opinion. If the costs outweighed the gains then it wouldn't be encouraged.

However, if you aren't entitled to a free jab, then you probably don’t need one. If you're vulnerable, the flu can be fatal, if you are not, it's an inconvenience and the biggest threat you will have is more likely the jab itself.
