Flu jag anyone?

Just had mine this morning.  Cheesy
Appointment at 12pm, in at 11:50, seen at 11:55 out by 11:57  Grin
SHMBO didn't want hers even though she is now entitled to a free one (both of us are now diabetic) afraid of needles  Tongue Gawd help her if she ever has to switch to insulin.  Sad

Had ours on 4th October. As usual SWMBO had reaction and I'm unpopular for taking her to surgery.

Re: Flu jag anyone?

every year although finally stopped getting anthrax and pneumonia jabs with it now Smiley so much nicer not to be knocked of your feet for a week by a jab combo
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Re: Flu jag anyone?

Our surgery for the first time has two Sunday mornings available for flue jabs this year.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Didn't notice that so I might pop in for one if there's a free Jag with it  Wink

GP's get paid a service fee of £7.63 per flu jab given by their Practice. This is in addition to their routine funding.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Flu jag anyone?

I flew in a Jag quite a few times ...
Whilst working in the Video Department of British Aerospace at Warton, where they were made, and flight tested before being handed on to the RAF, amongst others.
Air to Air and Analysis filming.
The Test Pilots tried to scare us, and make us sick, which occasionally they did !

........and in most practices the jab is given by a nurse.
