I was diagnosed with asthma a couple of years ago. I have had recurrent chest infections every winter for about 6 years and I had to attend a & e last winter with an asthma attack. I have a lot of triggers in the winter which affects my breathing. I saw a specialist asthma nurse last year who suggested that I had the pneumonia jab as it is supposed to be useful in people who have a lot of winter triggers to stop so many triggers. However, my GP says that I don't need it. I'm really confused now and I'm considering getting a jab privately. Has anyone else been recommended to have or had the jab and if so has it helped?
