A few quid saving compared to boots etc.

Some people can get the flu jab for Free but I'm not one of those so booked this.

Just ring your local Asda Pharmacy to book or ask in store.

£5 for the privilege of having your mind controlled? Bargain.


Tin foil 65p in Asda, you've obviously run out.
Didn't work for me, so I complained.

I wrote them a real snotty letter.

You're right. Colds are unpleasant, influenza historically kills millions.

Shame the internet spawns all the antivaxers into action each year with information from discredited pseuds. Vaccination is and has been the greatest medical leap forward in public health there has ever been. The lack of serious disease in 21st century UK breeds complacency. I wish there had been an MMR vaccine in 1966 when I could have benefited from it, I got measles then double pneumonia as a result. Bad chest ever since. Had the flu jab on Thursday from my local Boots (£12) - really convenient. Slightly achy arm for a couple of days, now I feel less worried about the rather worrying reports from Australia this winter. I would recommend it to anyone.

I personally place antivaxers into the same camp as climate change deniers - vocal, ill-educated, misinformed and basking in their own self importance with their own agenda while the quiet massive majority of highly educated dedicated scientists and health care professionals die a little inside on hearing them spout their dangerous twaddle.

Same happened to me so I avoid it too, works for some I guess.


It's designed to stop the flu, not the cold. The flu is much more severe and knocks you out for a lot longer and gives you fever/temperature and very weak. The cold is sniffles/sore throat and still tiring but unlikely to give you fever.

Our doctors doesn't advertise the fact anyone can book for a jab for free so it may be worth asking.

On sky news yesterday they were showing in Australia and New Zealand they've had a epidemic of flu as it's there winter now, but I never heard them say what strain flu virus but they think it will be coming to UK this flu season! So question is have the world health organisation and are NHS produced the correct flu vaccine

To be honest I use flu and cold interchangeably so I had loads of colds and flu about 3 times the year I had the flu jab. Never felt so rotten in my life. In comparison I only ever get a cold during winter hence my reason for staying away from the jab. I know flu and a cold aren't the same but we just call everything a cold lol.
good price heat op. flu jab guys, won't stop or give you a cold. thought everyone knew that

Is that the same as the Australian flu virus and is the UK flu vaccine the correct type for that strain, seems pointless if it's not

The flu jab for 2017/18

Each year, the viruses that are most likely to cause flu are identified in advance and vaccines are made to match them as closely as possible. The vaccines are recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Most injected flu vaccines protect against three types of flu virus:
A/H1N1 – the strain of flu that caused the swine flu pandemic in 2009
A/H3N2 – a strain of flu that mainly affects the elderly and people with risk factors like a long term health condition. In 2017/18 the vaccine will contain an A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 H3N2-like virus
Influenza B – a strain of flu that particularly affects children. In 2017/18 the vaccine will contain B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus
The nasal spray flu vaccine and some injected vaccines also offer protection against a fourth B strain of virus, which in 2017/18 is the B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus.
You can't get the flu from the flu vaccine, in the same way you can't make an omelette from empty shells. Your immune system will kick in and possibly make you feel a little rough for a short time, but no viral infection is taking hold
Another reason to get it, is so that are at less risk of passing the flu on to old folks.

Mrs works for NHS and swine flu was all over last year, the media just don't go crazy about it now, it's commonplace.
Or go to your GP, they're free

Ask your Mrs if I can get it free from my NHS health center as I'm a carer for my mum, claiming carer's allowance? A few years ago I was a carer for private clients and was able to get flu shot free.
Get your mercury, only £5

"Central Figure in CDC Vaccine Cover-Up Absconds With $2M

A central figure behind the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) claims disputing the link between vaccines and autism and other neurological disorders has disappeared after officials discovered massive fraud involving the theft of millions in taxpayer dollars. Danish police are investigating Dr. Poul Thorsen, who has vanished along with almost $2 million that he had supposedly spent on research.

Thorsen was a leading member of a Danish research group that wrote several key studies supporting CDC’s claims that the MMR vaccine and mercury-laden vaccines were safe for children. Thorsen’s 2003 Danish study reported a 20-fold increase in autism in Denmark after that country banned mercury based preservatives in its vaccines. His study concluded that mercury could therefore not be the culprit behind the autism epidemic.

His study has long been criticized as fraudulent since it failed to disclose that the increase was an artifact of new mandates requiring, for the first time, that autism cases be reported on the national registry. This new law and the opening of a clinic dedicated to autism treatment in Copenhagen accounted for the sudden rise in reported cases rather than, as Thorsen seemed to suggest, the removal of mercury from vaccines. Despite this obvious chicanery, CDC has long touted the study as the principal proof that mercury-laced vaccines are safe for infants and young children. Mainstream media, particularly the New York Times, has relied on this study as the basis for its public assurances that it is safe to inject young children with mercury — a potent neurotoxin — at concentrations hundreds of times over the U.S. safety limits".....

Was in my local Asda Pharmacy. They are starting with those jabs from next week ...
Be careful when I got this flu jab I was seriously ill for 2 days solid took the worst reaction. Now I just go without since it was that bad.

Yes you can -
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill.

You can get it for free from Boots etc, they just complete an NHS form. Make an appointment though as they will be busy.
Is this jab really always necessary? I appreciate the old, people with weak immune systems etc, but how many people actually get the REAL flu.
Not to be sniffed at
Literally hundreds of flu virus variations and mutations and the chances of getting the correct one to match the dominant strain during each flu season is minuscule. Don't bother with the flu jab, absolutely waste of time, it's a huge money maker for pharmaceutical companies, and rather ineffective.
Ill never understand people who allow toxic substances to be injected into their bodies in belief that they won't have flu. Stupidity!
My work colleague and her son keep taking flu jabs and every year she spends more time being off that one could imagine.
Ummmm..... nah.
H3N2 is the one causing problems in Australia this year so it might well be worth it.

I've only had flu once in my life and I never want to experience it again. Two weeks of feeling like I was dying with aches and hot and cold flushes, soaking bedsheets.

Many people have a bad cold and call it flu when it isn't at all. Flu has nothing to do with a runny nose and sneezing sniffling, it's an altogether different set of symptoms.
Only eligible patients can have the flu for free at their GP surgeries. So patients over 65, patients with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, CKD, CHD etc, pregnant ladies, carers and patients with a BMI over 40. Check with your GP if you are unsure.

"Swine flu" was the popular name for flu caused by a relatively new type of flu virus responsible for a global flu outbreak (or pandemic) in 2009-10. It's now just a normal type of seasonal flu and is included in the annual flu vaccine.
