i have the flu jab done every year but ive caught the flu how??? i cant belive it i feel like crap and after storm trying to take a chunk out of me its not going to well
i have manged to pass it onto everyone i go near aswell oops
probs a different strain of the virus or not flu just something similar usually flu knocks it right out of you and you cant even get out of bed. Plus if you have had the vaccination then caught flu your symptons wont be as bad.
some people are just prone t it i guess i dont no all of them but its the over 50's people with poor hearts, kidneys and lungs i think
people with cancer and alike and i think ashma comes into it aswell just ask your dr if he/she thinks you need it then they prob give it to you just to be on the safe side
I think you have to over a certain age i.e 65 or suffering from certain medical conditioins like asthama etc. Luckily (or not!) i had asthama as a kid so I can have the jab its worked for me so far touch wood!
So peeps with asthma, OAPS , type 1 diabetes come first, then those with mild conditions, then every1 else if theres any left.
I'm type 1 diabetic (insulin dependent) so I get first dibs, but I've never had it. I don't often suffer with flu. I think what most peeps think is flu is actually just a common cold, but a bad one of course.
YES THATS TRUE AND ITS BECAUSE ALL VACCINATIONS ARE A LITTLE BIT OF THE BUG/DISEASE, TO HELP YOUR BODY LEARN TO FIGHT IT OFF IF YOU EVER GET IT FULLY IN THE FUTURE(i dont know whay i had caps lock on, lol, but once i had typed it all i couldnt be bothered to retype it all)
last time i had flu i passed out when i stood up and everything looked yellow for some reason :shock: Properly ****ed me up for a couple of weeks so I have the jab everytime now if i can. I also get the pneaumonia (sp) jab too.
Why even bother??? It's my belief that there are no such things as colds or flu, lol.... These cold commercials and such are just subliminal messages for you to get sick so you have to buy their product and as far as flu shots are concerned, you just asking to get the flu... May sound strange but haven't had a cold in bout 6 years now, and never had a flu shot or the flu and I ride my bike to work and back even when its minus 30 outside, lol
