Anyone had a flu jab?
Been ‘invited’ to go to the quacks this morning for said injection. Seeing as I’ve only had flu twice in my life and heard more than a few horror stories is it actually worth doing?

I see prevention is no longer preferred to cure.


I guess there's far less sympathy/amateur dramatics involved with not getting ill as opposed to getting ill then getting better.

Re: Anyone had a flu jab?
Never had the flu or a flu jab,I’m 51.

If I ever get it and it fucks me up bad(not dead bad,just bad)then I’ll start getting one annually.
Until then I ain’t getting that shit injected into me voluntarily.

OTB - in GO world, it circumscises you, and integrates you into the Jewish Hive.

In the real world, it considerably reduces the chance of catching flu and being fucked for a few days (if you're relatively young, with chances of worse outcome if you're not).

Re: Anyone had a flu jab?
I have to wait for a phone call from the surgery.

Not happy, as one of the two times I got the flu since I've been having the jab was before the jab.

Got it for my 48th birthday. Don't want it for my 63rd.

Syd, I think you might need to re-read what I wrote as what you said doesn't make sense in response to it.

Re: Anyone had a flu jab?
Scientists have established a link between how badly an individual is likely to suffer from covid 19 infection is linked to the level of Neanderthal dna that individual carries.

Re: Anyone had a flu jab?
Nagel, you don’t suppose that is because mainly old gits get the flu jab in the first place therefore already more likely to get the Covid badly?

Just a wild thought.

"Fun Coronachan fact
You have a 36% higher chance of getting Covid 19 if you have had a flu vaccine in the last 12 months
according to the statistics of Italian victims of the Covid cull"

Not a fact though.

A 2017/18 military study of DoD personnel showed a 36% increased risk from other non-influenza respiratory viruses if you have had a flu vaccine. As with all studies of this type, needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. What is a fact though is that this study and this statistic has nothing at all to do with Italian victims of COVID.

I believe that flu jab higher risk rumour to be absolute fucking shash put around by scum cunts like GO.

Re: Anyone had a flu jab?
So even if at some stage you find yourself in a higher risk group, you won't have a flu jab!

Better stay clear of doctors altogether. What do they know!

Sadiq Khan yesterday pretended for all the cameras to share the illusion he had his vaccine shot

I hope we all get the option to either have the jab or simply pretend to have one for the rabble to be appeased.

Fun Coronachan fact
You have a 36% higher chance of getting Covid 19 if you have had a flu vaccine in the last 12 months
according to the statistics of Italian victims of the Covid cull, luckily the elderly had mandated courses of vaccines twice last year in the most hard hit spots over there.

On the contrary. This meta-analysis specifically looked at vaccination vs not-vaccinated patients (natural immunity), and their sunsequent likelihood of catching flu. As they concluded there was a benefit for some being vaccinated, but the vaccines as a whole, could be improved.

Studies comparing different vaccines to assess the efficacy of one against another, were not included in their findings.

I'm 60 years old and had it for the first time in October 2019. For the first time in my life I have gone a whole without even the slightest cold. Will definitely be taking up the offer of this year's concoction in 2 week time.

Re: Anyone had a flu jab?
Cheers Bungo

Seems efficacy studies comparing vaccines to natural immunity are not a popular line of inquiry, and that’s hardly a surprise given where the funding comes from.

Not directly one of my therapy areas, but a quick search has led me to this, which is a meta-analysis of lots of trials. This was published by The Lancet which is a decent starting point,

They looked at 31 eligible trials and summarised:-

"Influenza vaccines can provide moderate protection against virologically confirmed influenza, but such protection is greatly reduced or absent in some seasons. Evidence for protection in adults aged 65 years or older is lacking. LAIVs consistently show highest efficacy in young children (aged 6 months to 7 years). New vaccines with improved clinical efficacy and effectiveness are needed to further reduce influenza-related morbidity and mortality."

LAIV means Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine.

Clearly far from perfect, but better than nothing for many.
