If I've had a stomach bug the past 2 days, should I put off getting the booster? I was planning on going to a local walk-in either tomorrow or Saturday. Mind you, I may still not feel up to it tomorrow.

It matters not.
Personally I would postpone my booster.
I agree with Sqad. Leave it until you feel better.
Yes, if its just a walkin thats going to stay and you can get your jab easily next week instead,
No, a simple stomach bug should not stop you getting a booster, unless it turns into something nasty.
I'd probably go William if it weren't too bad but it depends exactly how you feel and how far you have to go
We have always been asked if we are well when we have jabs at our medical practice Is this not standard practise?
I think Pat they are asking if you have Covid or the Flu.
Yes although am not sure whether theyd refuse to give it for a stomach bug or still do it. So if pasta goes and they send her away its a wasted journey, so it depends whether thats an inconvenience for all. Pasta will weigh it up as he/she know more of the circumstamce's
William, no they just ask if we are feeling well.

Thanks for your answers. I'm inclined not to, but I'll see how I feel tomorrow. It's in the city centre, where I do all my errands, so we'll see.
All I felt like doing today was sleep.
I think you’d be wise to postpone it. Get yourself well first. Hope you feel better soon.
why risk making yourself feel worse than you already are?
Pasta, at our surgery you would be told to go home. The jabs are only done by Gps and nurses. I would trust their judgement more than those jabbing in the big centres. Tuck up and get yourself well. X
Given this evening's press conference, and the fact that boosters were opened up today to over-40s who received their vaccination within the last three (not six) months, I think you'll find that walk-ins will be very busy. I would get a booster if I could, but I wouldn't stand waiting for hours for one with a stomach bug.
