I have just received a letter from my GP practice inviting me to have the pneumonia vaccine. I was very ambivalent about this but after researching I decided I am going for it.
Up until 2014 I rarely caught colds and had never had a chest infection, after a bad bout of bronchitis which took a lot of antibiotics and steroids to clear and lasted for 4 months.
So many bugs seem to be antibiotic resistant that I think with the AF history and the myasthenia and being on immune suppressants, it would be sensible.
I was told by the cardiac nurse that everyone who has a history of heart conditions is being invited to take up the offer which is a vaccine which protects against 3 strains of pneumonia. It is a one off injection.
Have you had an invitation to have this vaccine and if so thoughts please?
