Sainsburys in Beckton have the flu shot reduced from £12 down to £8 and when you go through the checkout you get an additional voucher for £2 off. (go through the checkout and get the voucher before you get the shot)

shot can be given there and then in the pharmacy.

why would you need flu shot when you can get all the germs u need in the Uni! any uni! :-D FREE, plus if your lucky some might even have swine flu..! Bonus.
#2
If you need one, it is FREE from the NHS!
#3
not everyone is entitled to a shot on the nhs - only those at high risk like the elderly.

My point exactly, you don't really need one then! It just feeds on peoples paranoia.

i got offered one and im not high risk or elderly...apparently they are now offering it to everyone...i did nt take them up on it

I find the supermarkets offering these jabs horrendoes, they have side effects and are not suitable for everyone, I am a nurse and I refuse the jab because Flu wont kill a healthy person but a reaction to the jab could
#8
talk about doom and gloom. here i was thinking it was hotdeals where you post offers that may interest people. why bother.
#9
Please do bother.:thumbsup:...............Every offer is good to know even if just gossip !!!..... i certainly will be looking to get the flu jab this year.......... never had it..........:-D

I've never had a flu jab and I've never had the flu - saved myself loads of cash in both not paying for a flu jab and buying flu remedies :whistling:

School staff, NHS staff, council staff - it's not just high risk people it depends on your job too.

You can guarantee that, can you?

I'll remember that when my earlier Flu exposure means I am so much less likely to DIE from future mutated versions of the same viirus.... which is exactly why the present H1N1 strain is affecting and even killing YOUNGER people, not the oldies who have already had it! :)

How about some people would be well pleased to pay £6 to avoid flu!

Chances are slim of catching it but if you are well paid and self employed then £6 is a small price to pay to protect the potential loss in pay :thumbsup:

And £6 could be less than you could earn while sitting around in Doctor's waiting rooms too!

You have a made two statements that I think are false. Flu can kill a healthy person but it depends on the strain and other factors. For example the 1918 pandemic killed a lot of fit and healthy people in their 20s. While i don't think a their is any side effects in current flu vaccine which will kill you.

Also saying that your are a nurse is a good example of a logical fallacy of argument from authority.

I get offered a flu jab with work every year but never take them up on it bacause I'm only 33...

Do you think with swine flu about I should this year???

Yes as you will be less likely to get the flu which is very nasty to have. But the flu vaccine will not protect you from swine flu due to it being a different strain than in the current vaccine.

If you are really a nurse you would know that seasonal flu kills dozens of healthy people a year

I work in a school. Do I get it free or shall I cough up the £6? £6 is cheaper than a lot of flu remedies and we have a few kids in school that have other medical conditions so I'd rather not risk them coming to harm.

Should be free if you want to have it.
#24
i heard a lot of celebrities are fronting the campaign for people to get these, heard leona lewis got an early jab:-D
#25
ok look at it like this.

£6.00 while you do your weekly shop, save ££££ on remedies and time off work.

Or ring your doctor, apply for a fee jab and if you get it take hour off work or rush in your lunch, sit in the waiting room for an hour as they are busy, then your not allowed to leave for 10mins just incase you feel ill, Ok maybe free (if your lucky) but the additional cost of getting there, phone calls, time off work, parking fees?

It would cost me lot more than the £8.00 I paid going to the Doctors, so at even lower price of £6.00 a bargin

End of the day its 1/2 price its a deal

If you can get it free fine but most cant

Dunno how I feel about that. My mother had plenty of exposure to flu in her youth and got given the jab the other year. It almost killed her. The youngsters succumbing to swine flu appear in the main to have "underlying medical conditions", which makes drawing any conclusion invidious.

It's a gamble whatever your medical history, and a jab can't guarantee to protect you from a mutating strain, anyway.

What, the jab almost killed her?
The only serious reactions tend to be from those allergic to one of the ingredients, eg. eggs (as they are cultured on eggs!) Naturally, if I was sensitive to eggs, I dare say I would give the Flu jabs a miss!
One good thing about Flu jabs generally, is the low level of side effects, (and millions of cases of use are there to judge that on!) unlike say, Typhoid jabs. Still nothing is impossible, just it's pretty uncommon.
Life is full of risk, Flu jabs are no different - it is all about assessing that risk, and deciding whether or not to do something. We do it constantly all day, every day - if you need to cross the road, you assess the best place and timing to do that, if you don't need to, then it might be worth giving that a miss altogether especially if the traffic is fast and heavy. Any medical intervention is like that too - (tell me about it!), I have got it wrong myself too, about 6 years ago, and am still suffering the consequences of being a lot worse after than I was before - but all I did then is try to judge things based on what I know and what the likely outcome would be!

As to previous immunity, it rather depends on previous exposure to the specific H1N1 flu outbreak, not just to Flu generally, this has been the reason older people have not been the main victims to this version of H1N1, so far. No guarantees there either, just statistically you are less likely to get it, or for it to be as serious. Seasonal flu jabs are a mixture of science and guesswork, an educated guess that the right strains are included, so again there is no 100% guarantee.

Inevitably some people will have lost any benefit that they did acquire in the past, and of course it will depend on the person's current immune system now too. ANY vaccination is partly a gamble - immunity isn't guaranteed, it's all about reducing your risk statistically, and it's all about reducing the level of cases across the board which has the potential to reduce the overall spread in the population. (and especially with susceptible people such as those living in closed environments)

Unfortunately though, it's still tough on a personal level if you get it.
