hi Paul,think would be best talk to the nurse when the swine flu jabs start.The weather it causing alot of asthma people probs and could just have flared up without the jab but yes would make you think twice about having the jab just incase, we all need more info from our GP to help us decide for our selves.

IT's a new jab and hope we might here some info on here how people have gone on with the jab.

Love Glynis xxxx good luck xxxx
