​The jab is for sheeple who want a corporation injecting chemicals that mess around directly with your immune system.

I think I watch Resident Evil too much.

Smartprice Flu Jab £5
Chosen by You Influenza Vaccine £10

Same stuff, different label

Cheers OP good price, although personally I'll be asking for the flu prevention jab

Free for NHS staff at work, and those with certain health conditions via GP.

Of course it messes around directly with your immune system, it wouldn't be much use as a vaccine otherwise, would it.

You don't need to go to GP to get a free jab.

If you are in the qualifying category then Asda should do it for free too. Boots definitely do it. I have done so for a few years. Simply walk in at an off peak time and they will do it there and then.


Beats waiting at doctors surgery or flu clinics. Especially for people who work. Difficult to get the time.

Nope you just fill out the NHS form and tick why you're eligible.

Might be worth noting pharmacies can only do flu jabs for over 18s as well.

Flu jab doesn't prevent flu. It's a live virus that gives you flu. I will never get it even if they paid me. it's all money making business

Fingers crossed its the right version this year

​of course it's a live virus,weakened but live and money making business for those who produce vaccines,when did it prevent people from flu? it's totally opposite I'm afraid. And then you go and spend money on things to make you better so who's the winner? Vit c,healthy diet and you don't need any vacancies.

"Of course" - What on Earth are you talking about?

It is a statement of fact that the injected flu vaccine contains no live virus . It's not up for debate, it's not like it *might* ! It simply doesn't Fact. Comprehended? If that wasn't clear enough, you are trolling

Don't you see that you've been fooled by Big Vitamin propaganda? You can't really spend money on things to make you better for flu, it's a virus and vitamin C won't make any significant difference preventing or curing flu. A few 20p packets of paracetamol for a week and that's all you can do.

"vacancies" X). I assume you don't mean all vaccines are useless and pointless, just the flu vaccine? Are you suggesting the flu vaccine is completely pointless? A £5 jab can prevent flu and thus also any complications such as pneumonia. How much money do the corporations make when someone spends an extra 2 weeks in hospital on strong antibiotics?

There's also the issue of herd immunity. If you are close to young children, the elderly or an immunocompromised person who may not have had the vaccine, you could pass on the virus to them.

​Cherry boy didn't say to spend money on vitamins and/or similar supplements. Vitamin c can come from natural foods too. Did you notice his words "healthy diet"

I got duped into taking the flu jab for a few years a while ago. Got sick at least twice a year. Then decided not to bother and lo & behold I only have a small bout of flu about once every 5 years. Go figure. Please no smart asses saying its the vaccination doing its job because that pile of $h*t is only supposed to last a year.

How long your own flu shot lasts depends on how powerfully your own … How long your own flu shot lasts depends on how powerfully your own immune system reacts to it, said Dr. John J. Treanor, a vaccine expert at the University of Rochester medical school. In a young, healthy person, protection might last for years, even as circulating flu strains change. Conversely, he said, there is some debate about whether older people or those with compromised immune systems ought to get two flu shots per season, since a shot they got in October may wear off by March or April.



Cherry didn't say that no but the emoticon was meant to indicate that it was simply a tongue in cheek comment and we don't have a way of knowing exactly what they meant regardless.

I did notice their words but a healthy diet is unfortunately not a guaranteed prevention for disease. There is a common misconception that a high vitamin C intake from whatever source can treat and/or prevent colds, flu etc but this is simply not true.

I'm not sure why you think you were "duped", you suggest a vaccine caused you to become ill more often but we cannot state it was the cause and that's assuming it is a viable cause. Like all vaccines, the flu vaccine is not guaranteed to prevent flu and it's efficacy will naturally vary each and every year but that doesn't make it a "pile of $h*t". Of course you are not guaranteed to get flu every year if you don't have the vaccine, the vaccine is not some miracle preventative measure. The vaccine is aimed at those that are vulnerable to flu. You and I are probably otherwise young and healthy, we will probably get the flu regardless once every few years, sometimes more often, sometimes less, and we will be fine after a few days. Those that are vulnerable or susceptible to flu have a higher risk of struggling with flu and more importantly a higher risk of the complications associated with it such as pneumonia.

Vaccines are not solely about us, they benefit others and society as a whole, particularly those who cannot be vaccinated and the immunocompromised such as the elderly and children which is why they have vaccination programs for these groups. If everyone had the flu vaccine, it would help in reducing the total incidence of, the risk of exposure to and the associated complications of the disease but this is mainly limited by budgets. If you live with or regularly come into contact with vulnerable groups, it is a good idea to get the flu vaccine hence why all NHS workers are encouraged to get it too.

Sorry to be a smart ass but technically it is somewhat possible that your previous flu jabs are still helping. A new jab is given each year because the virus mutates so quickly and so different strains are more likely to be more prevalent in the upcoming season, not simply that the previous jab wore off although it is likely your protection will have dropped.

​Unfortunately, unless you are given the live flu the day it is bottled, it has already mutated rendering it less effective.
Also, the body identifies virus/bacteria and has a select way of doing so. Injecting the virus directly into muscle tissue is not a normal wayof obtaining such.
Our immune systems been doing pretty well without vaccinations for years and years. Unless we are immunosupressant, why jepodise our amazing bodies? Anyho, each to their own....

I think deeply that opposing side of views are correct.
1/ virus versus anti-viral vaccine , is forever a battle (since virus mutates),
2/ so technically a specific vaccine may be helpful in the short term but is ineffective in the long term,
3/ without a doubt, specificity works for some but not all, so for some preventative and for some not,
4/ body own immune system has or not worked through millennia, it depend on your own choice
5/ the word "prevent" means differently depending on whether it is used specifically for one named person, or generally across the population
