    For gods sake get a flu shot

    Before your next flu season!!!!!
    This flu season is now the worst in Australian history. Its affecting media, sports, medical staff...the list is extensive. Its striking more people this year and severely. Normally healthy fit people are being stuck down and hospitalised in more numbers than ever before. 97 people already dead, including the latest, a perfectly healthy eight year old girl. Normally theres a push to immunise the very young, infirm and elderly...but this year doctors are injecting (or trying to) everyone.
    Ive had it twice now, but just the lurgi type strain. Every single person i know or have spoken to has had it.


    So please you guys in the northern hemisphere, your next season of flu is going to be a really bad one.

    I got my letter today asking me to arrange a date.

    They do that over here to all the old timers.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    The strains theyve taken care of this season hasnt been enough even though they put an extra one in. You guys may be luckier. We havent even peaked yet.

    And now we have a confirned measles outbreak.. its going to be one of those years.

    Re: For gods sake get a flu shot

    We all got provided with free flu shots for anyone who wanted them at work last year. Probably will again this year. I get them free anyway, due to being exempt from prescription charges. Otherwise they can cost up to £15 (although I understand that Asda do a value version for £5 - seriously), for the company to invest in innoculating all its staff (about 1000 in the office now), is quite a cost.

    NO I am not one of those crazy anti vaxxers. I just do not get the Flu shot for myself.

    I get offered it every year and every year I remind them I have an egg allergy and every year they say will try to get the egg free vaccine for me.

    Not had a flu jab yet.
