I had flu 3 years back, it was scary as hell. I've had a flu jab for years and will continue to do so - but Jack is right to doubt its effectiveness.

It's the science that shows its ineffectiveness.
I've never had a flu jab I've had flu once and like Azz says it's scary!
I was hallucinating in a soaking wet bed.
It was when we were being told the 45 minute bollox about Saddam.
I was convinced in my madness he'd got me.
Couldn't eat or breath.
The bedding was being changed a number of times a day and it was wringing wet again in no time.

You can't possibly know that.
I might as well say not having the flu jab worked for me.
Each year is an untried untested experiment.


Well I’ve been having it on and off for about 8 years and the times I don’t have it I’ve had the worst flu, the kind that incapacitates you for days. So, it works for me. Maybe I’ve just been lucky.

I wouldn't call getting flu repeatedly lucky.
Maybe you've not much natural immunity to flu?

I have the flu jab annually, but it's amazing how many doctors and nurses refuse it.

I can't remember the last time I had genuine flu.

No doofus, I don’t get flu whenever I’d had the jab :gigglesnshit:
My immunity used to be really low for everything which is why I needed the jab. Much better now except with flu.

They know it will compromise their immune systems and that's the last thing they need.

Thankfully I've never had the flu.

I can mind Traps saying an Ex-Girlfriend of his had it and she couldn't get out of bed for four weeks.

I get the flu jag each year because I have Asthma.

That's my inhalers.

Two puffs of the pink one in the morning and at night and the blue one when I need it during day.

About 10 years ago I think I must have had it. I felt like I was about to keel over and die and missed almost a month of work because I just couldn’t find the energy to do anything. I slept for most of the day and night. It was after that actually that I found the need for an inhaler. I couldn’t shake the chest cough that came with being ill.

Most ‘colds’ for me tend to last about a week and end up being mostly nasal congestion and a cough. The tiredness is a day or two at most.

I agree with those who say that most people are exaggerating when they say they have the flu. Of course colds make you feel like crap, but flu is completely debilitating.
