Had it today & pneumonia jab (again) - sitting here now arm aching like a lead weight and swollen like a tennis ball (everybody steer clear) as usual shivering and sweating, I always get a reaction for 24-48 hours but it the long run it's well and truly worth it :-)

Hi Richard,

I have been waiting for my GP to get me a flu jab without egg products as allergic

I reckon that was YOUR surgery, not NHS, plenty to go round in other surgeries.

had mine..and my pneu jab too :-)

Had mine last Saturday, sooner the better I always think. My surgery does them every Saturday in October and 1 in November.

I've been going to breathe easy for 8 years, good for all who want the extra contact with people sharing same or other lung condition.

My surgery only do flu clinics can't get to those and they can't make individual appointments have to phone in November. They also say boots do appointments for jabs, so going to try that instead.

Hi There

Apparently there has been a recall of some of the vaccines made by a particular company so there may be a delay in getting flu jabs out.

Apparently the government have a stockpile so hopefully it shouldn't be too bad.

Let us know if you have any problems!

Cheers

Jo
