Thread: get the jab

    get the jab

    Not a topic about deer stalking at all, but bear with me. If you or your family members are vulnerable or have some health issues please do get, or get them to have the swine flu jab. As I work within the Ambulance service supporting their comm's systems, I know we are again expecting another flu epidemic, because it didn't happen last year, many people are ignoring the need for vaccination. Last Friday, my ex business partner's daughter, my goddaughter buried her daughter of just under 3 years old, it was a heartrending experiance that no one should have to bear, and one that I hope I never have to attend again. deerwarden

    Sorry for your loss, that's tragic news. I had the flu jab in October as did my mother.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    Deerwarden - sorry to hear that bad news.

    I would definitely second your call that people should get the immunisation. My wife has had the flu for the last 8 days and it's a really bad strain that's absolutely flattened her.

    Please accept the condolences of the admin team, loosing ones child must be about the worse thing that can happen to anyone.

    I had the flu before christmas and it has taken nearly 7 weeks to get over it with a course of antibiotics as well. I have never been as ill for so long ever, it certainly is good advice to get the jab.

    Sad news.

    Ive just finished a 3 month course of antibiotics so Im guessing I wont have much of an immune system left.

    Must get myself to the quacks
    There is a place on this planet for all of God's creatures, right next to my tatties and gravy!!!

    I am a GP and my advice is if you offered the jab next year (i.e if you are a member of a 'at risk group'), take it. In my experience, in Swansea ,it has really floored patients for 2 weeks. My partners & I were vaccinated & none of us went off sick but the two main hospitals in Swansea were incapacitated by staff sickness.
