Wont touch the flu jab always got far more colds in the year I had a jab. Other friends have the same problem either colds or cough or just feeling ill all the time. I use a homeopathic remedy, have done for the past 10 years. Not had the jab for 20 years, too dangerous for me.

Had mine this morning, nurse said she'd had no reports of adverse reaction .....so far! So fingers crossed. My medicine cupboard needs restocking, it's on my to do list.
