I'm 58, reasonably fit and healthy, don't qualify for a free flu jab but wondering about getting it done at the chemist.
I've never had flu (tempting fate!) but wonder if it's worth doing.

I've had one at Tescos pharmacy for the last two years, and it was easy.

Thanks for the reminder that I am due again.

I've had the flu jab for about the last 6 years.I had one very minor reaction about 2 years ago when the NHS were worried about some stronger Avian type flu that caused total unnecessary panic for a while.
I would say the annual jab is well worth having.Like you most people have never had flu but say they have it when it is no more than a sniffle.If you really experience flu, as I have many years ago,you just don't want to get out of bed.It is most debillitating.I recommend it.Having mine this Wednesday.
I get a jab because I am on my own with 2 dogs and having flu would just be inconvenient. I get mild side effects but nothing on millionth as bad as having real flu, which I have had twice in my life.
A couple of years ago all my family went down with nasty viruses and I sailed through untouched.

I can't be sure it was the jab that helped me, but it might have.

I can't afford to be off sick, so it is £10 well spent.
