    Had mine last week and no ill affects. Annoyed with my surgery as they failed to notify me. They normally do so with at risk patients but the system seems to be creaking.

    Similar poor experience to Barry over notification.

    But you can just walk in to many pharmacies and get it right away.

    A week or more on - absolutely no side effects.

    Yep same, no notification;

    I had the Flu jam six days ago and have experienced head aches, one whist in bed two days after and sometimes shorter ones in the days that have followed.

    Of course it could be nothing to do with that as I have so many things going on and tooth trouble again.

    Such fun, Love Terry

    Hi TC,

    I hope you feel better soon. The inoculation may have side effects but you would feel much worse if you caught flu.

    Hi, I had my first ever flu jab today. I was also booked in for the pneaumonia jab but the GP Practice had none in stock. Evidently there’s a national shortage of the vaccine.
    The GP practice won’t inform me when they get any!!
    I have to keep ringing them to see if they have it.
    I despair!

    Had my flu jab a couple of weeks ago. I wasn't offered a pneumonia jab is this a good idea. Do you all have this one aswell?

    Hi Pinkelle,
    My MND consultant said it was a must. But it's a one off and isn't repeated.
