Swine Flu Jab


Recommended Posts

Hi

Was just wondering if anyone has had the swine flu jab. I have had a message left on my answerphone to get in touch with the doctors about whether I want the jab or not.

Simon rang them and he booked his appt cos he has no spleen so nothing to fight infection but forgot to ask about mine :roll: Typical man hey! :lol:

Will ring them Monday but just wondered what everyone else had heard.

Thanks

I asked my GP about it, as my Macmillan nurse said i should....he said i did not need it.....i have had a very bad cold in the past, but very rarely, and never had flu where you end up in bed.....so fingers crossed i wont catch it now :-D xx :roll:

Hi

I've had both flu jabs, ordinary and swine and am OK. I did have a cough after the swine flu jab but I don't think it had any connection. I believe you are entitled to a swine flu jab if there is someone else in the home who is at risk. My wife Barbara has also had it as she's asthmatic and she seems OK to. Of course there are always exceptions to the rule so its down to personal choice but there have been quite a few people seriously ill in my area so I didn't hesitate.

Cheers

John

Hi

I got a letter from my GP's surgery saying that I'm in the "at risk" group and should have the swine flu jab. I've put on an appointment to get it on Thursday. I think it must be due to my having a SAH though I've not been called for ordinary flu jabs.

I've only had one cold/upper respiratory tract infection since my SAH and it did seem to take a lot more out of me than usual.

Best

Anne

I asked my GP about it last week and he said "If you were my Dad, I would say definitely have it" Yes, he's quite a bit younger than me! I went for a CVA/Stroke check-up this morning and was given the opportunity to have both the normal flu jab and the swine flu jab there and then ... I declined the offer.
