Yes, exactly the same. Some people aren't eligible to get one on the NHS.
i think u have to ring Asda pharmacy for appointment and yr doctors will give flu jabs if yr health condition leaves u at risk.
wish I had this last week and my last 4 days would have been a lot better lol
Booked in for this coming Saturday. I had to go into the store and book an appointment and pay as they would not let me do it over the phone

I believe they take a few weeks to kick in and the older you are the less effective they are.
Find me a doctor prepared to take a flu jab and I might consider it.

You are aware it includes the swine flu jab that everyone who worked for the NHS was told they had to have and most refused.

The price may be hot, the flu jab its self is far from it.

They tend not to cover against the latest strains
Very controversial this one! Good price if you were going to buy it anyway tho!
So many medical experts here!

Any quidco? Free delivery???
Few too many conspiracy theorists on here methinks.

All these scare stories and what actually happens in the end? Nothing.

you have to be over 65, under 65 and in an at risk category or pregnant to get a free one from your GP practice.

They were giving these away in my work a couple of years ago. I declined it. Jab is based on the previous virus which renders it pretty pointless. From the research I did at the time I concluded I was better off without it. Two years later here I am still alive and kicking. Some jabs also contain mercury.
was going to vote cold, but the jab prevented it.

To be honest I think these should be only given to those who are most vulnerable, such as the elderly. For the rest of us, it's better to actually get the thing.
I would rather have a cup of tea with the Russian secret service thanks.
I refused this jab last year and previous years. All the doctors and nurses I know also refused it. Most of it was binned as it became out of date through fear of use. If your old or have a certain condition, I recommend you see your own gp.
I suppose the MMR vaccine causes autism as well? *facepalm*

Tell that to my brother who almost died when got swine flu two years ago. He ended up in intensive care on a breathing machine with oxygen being pumped into him at maximum pressure and purity, when that was not working he ended going to a specialist ECMO unit where they put what looks like a hose pipe in your neck to remove the blood, oxygenate it and pump it back in again.

Now everyone has the vaccine and has definately reduced our families level of bad colds and improved our general winter health. Its not better to get a cold as they also weaken your resistance to other ailments such as e-coli, hn1n, and meningitis. The only reason they dont recommend everyone getting the vaccine is because there is not enough to go round.
No Asda Pharmacy near me but Sainsbury's are doing it for £8, Tesco for £10 and Boots for £10.99.

I doubt this would protect you against swine flu, this type of vaccine normally protects against a specific strain of flu that's the most common...I could be wrong though.
And even if he did have it and didn't get it, how would you know it worked...the effectiveness of this sort of elective preventative measure is very hard to measure.

or are carers which covers most people who need one?
Catching flu could kill me. Having a jab to possibly prevent flu is a no-brainer, as thy say.

Do all these objectors stop their kids having innoculations against Polio, Diptheria, etc etc?

No? Oh how surprising.

I tend to agree, those who aren't eligible probably don't really need it.

Though for anyone who does really want it then not a bad price I guess.
Think I'll save my £7 and hope for a few days off work! X)
i've had my flu jab every year for four years,sometimes feel a bit hot for a few days,sooner have this then get the flu!

I hate these 'Doctors & Nurses don't vaccinate' quotes without any background. Studies (as opposed to half-hacked, bad science newspaper & conspiracy websites) show that the flu vaccination rate in nurses is over 75%. Of those that refused, the largest reason was not safety, but 'lack of personal need'.

chesterdraws

Dose this cover the worse kind of flu Man Flu ?



god i hate this bullshiiit term more.... than I hate people that talk about home improvement and how great their kids are....

here are the facts for once and for all:

• Man-Flu is more painful than childbirth. This is an irrefutable scientific fact*. *(Based on a survey of over 100,000 men.)

• Men do not “moan” when they have Man-Flu. They emit involuntary groans of agony that are entirely in proportion to the unbearable pain they are in.

• Men suffering from Man-Flu want nothing more than to get out of bed and go to work, but they are too selfless to risk spreading this awful condition amongst their friends and colleagues. In this sense, they could be considered as heroes.

• Man-Flu germs are more powerful than He-Man, The Thundercats and The A-Team combined. They are too strong for weak, nasty tasting “lady medicines” like Lemsip, so don’t bother trying to force them on a victim of Man-Flu.

• Full recovery from Man-Flu will take place much quicker if simple requests for care, sympathy and regular cups of tea are met.

they're not objecting its called a discussion and anyway some people don't have there kids innoculated against Polio, Diptheria.
...there was a massive scare a few years ago about the polio vac being related to autism and hooping cough related to brain damage....
