Having a flu jab doesn't guarantee in any way that you will not get sick lol
Isnt a bit of flue and snot good
I’ve had one for the previous 8 years after getting a bout of swine flu.
Every year I’ve been ill. Usually flu like symptoms. Usually off work for a week.

I’m giving it a miss this year.

Only free if you are in an at risk group.

free on NHS

As Simonhawking said it's only free if you meet certain criteria. Most people won't.
Why is this a thing for healthy people? I mean, shouldn't our immune systems take care of it in most cases?

Yeah, you get one free if you need a flu jab, people have them for the sake of it .
I always get the flu a week or so after my flu jab

A lot of scare mongering every year about a flu epidemic.

Perhaps many people on this forum may not qualify for the free vaccine, but a lot of people nationally should meet the criteria which includes :-

Over 65 years old
Diabetes
Respiratory disease (eg copd )
Heart condition
Carer (receiving allowance for someone else)
Anyone with compromised immune system
and a a few other reasons.

Anyone not eligible for a free vaccine should simply find a pharmacy who offers these privately and price varies from £5 (Asda early season promotion) - £20.

P
its also free if you are obese..

It's a nice distraction from Brexit though.

That's odd, my local (Fareham) ASDA are advertising it at £5. Large signs at the pharmacy desk.
Amazing comments. People get flu after jab and still getting vaccinated. No comments
Only had flu twice - ended up in hospital both times.A timely reminder.
Hot for that thanks.

Or just drink beer
Weirdly people I know that get these always get ill worse than people who dont bother. No thanks.
I know people who've claimed to have had flu multiple times in a year after having a flu jab whilst i've had flu jabs and will be getting one soon and never gotten flu
just had mine done.. Jesus i feel like crap.. pain all over my body.. fever.. muscle aches et al
Anyone genuinely thinking of getting the flu shot should spend an hour or two researching or if you can’t be bothered researching just ask your doctor or chemist what is actually in the shot and what side effects you could get. Also ask them if they have it themselves and if you’re good at spotting lies you will spot one. Watch their eyes as they say yes. It will be banned in the US in next couple of years.
One of the biggest scams in medical history.
