Hi I went to see my GP today as my asthma was a bit worse than usual and he put me on 30mg prednisolone and anti-biotics for a chest infection. After many ABGs etc in the past Ive mentioned as before I have become rather needle-phobic. I was under the impression that if you are unwell that flu jabs should not be administered but my GP said it would be fine and said I would die if I didnt have the injection. :s Anyway so I had the jab and I fainted. So what I was wondering is A, is this a common side-effect of the flu jab as this has never happened in the past and B, should he have admistered the flu jab today?
