Hello!

I have asked my GPs surgery to try to get hold of the Celvapan egg free version of the Swine Flu jab a few weeks ago.

I checked up with the nurses, via email ( nice & convenient) and they are currently trying to tie up with other GPs etc as I am the only one requesting egg free at my surgery and it comes in batches of 500!

Are there other egg alergic people out there trying to get the jab and have you had it or are you still waiting?

Many thanks

I am still waiting to hear about when the jab will be available The last I heard was that it will be given at a central location and not my local surgery.

I have had my letter for swine flu jab and rang up to query about egg free and still waiting for a reply as i would have to go to a specialist centre for it apparently, although i am still not sure i am having it. I think i have had swine flu so not sure if it worth it. Also peole who are having it are getting ill after it and i am due to start work......
