Improving herd immunity improves everyone's health. A 2 year old has no 'natural' immunity it has to be learned by the body. By vaccinating people who are around that child it protects the child by forming a barrier of immune people around then.

Prior to vaccinations the infant mortality rate was way above where it is now, also more elderly people died as a result of the flu when they did not get the flu jab.

All you idiots who was the to go back to 'how it was in the olden days' don't realise that in those olden days you were lucky to make it to your mid thirties and if you lost your teeth maybe even before that.

Flu vaccination only works against a limited range of viruses and epidemiologists have to predict (AKA use informed guesswork) which ones to protect against every year.

Flu virus strangely doesn't check whether it's the one epidemiologists predicted would reach blighty this year, it just goes ahead and infects you. So of course you can get vaccinated and still catch a different flu. It's about averages, winning on average, not every single time.

Every time an anti-vaxxer succumbs to disease the world's IQ rises a little. Unfortunately the selfish **** take out too many people reliant entirely on herd immunity along the way
What A LOT of people dont realise is that "a flu" is not "a cold". Flu jabs will protect you from the flu, not a cold. And even still, it doesnt provide 100% protection. Its more in the region of 70%. So there is still that 30% chance of getting the flu.
P.s. most pharmacies offer this, not just boots.

Apparently... they have found the magic bullet and a new Flu Jab is on the way .....
1 vaccine will cover all... as with all drugs... it will not work on everybody and some will react to it

And of course some numpties will refuse it after listening to or reading conspiracy theorists clap trap

Exactly. Fortunately, the number of people who get flu is a tiny fraction of those who get "flu".

human nature says why have i got this 4 days after having the injection , it was the injection that gave it me ! thanks for taking the time to answer anyways :-)
I've only ever had two flu jabs - both at Sainsburys. After the first jab, I was really ill for around two weeks - actually think that I did have the flu. I was a bit reluctant to go back the following year, but I did, however, this time I was perfectly fine after the jab. Need to get one for this year, but I've only recently had a major operation, with a full recovery time of up to two months, and didn't want to be ill before it. Think I'll wait a few more weeks and then see about getting it done.

Are you sure you dont just have man fllu OR its more serious woman flu?
You can tell the difference as with woman flu theres a lot more moaning & grumbling followed by amnesia causing them to believe only men complain & they are martyrs to illness & suffer it in silence?

nope it's most definitely the 'flu' I know it's not manflu because my hubby had that last year and I have none of his symptoms ie complaining that he could be dying, sniffing & coughing constantly when I walk into the room but complete silence when I walk out, constant sighing and complaining that he's never felt like this in his life! and anyway the doctor who stuck the damn thing in my arm in the first place told me it's definitely flu when I was in there today apparently I'm one of the minority who get flu after having the flu jab. Still trying to twist my arm into letting my toddler have it too but there's no way he's having it. Oh and just for the record I'm not anti vaccine despite what a few on here think my children are up to date on all their vaccinations I had the whooping cough vaccine when pregnant but I don't believe the flu jab is necessary I only had it done because I have a weak chest and they wouldn't stop bloody banging on about how much I would benefit from having it done!! so
