    Flu jab/immunisation

    Wifey is trying to convince me to get a flu jab

    I haven't had a flu for years and i freakin hate needles so I'm resisting the idea

    Anyone here had a flu jab and if you did do you think its a good idea ?

    Every year, can't afford to get the flu, which with my asthma moves into a serious lung infection usually, get the mini vial, you can ask for it, you don't even feel the injection, and good looking nurse also distracts you from the pain! You big sook

    Get the flu jab every year. It doesn't promise to stop you getting the flu though, but it will immunize you from older strains.

    It doesn't really hurt.

    I got the jab this year, first year ever, no side effects, arm didn't hurt afterwards like others said it would etc, no drama, now to see if it makes a difference...

    Don't do it. If you don't normally get the flu then you probably won't this year either. And if you do then odds are the injection probably wouldn't have helped. Immunisation is for M people like Maca and Munsey.

    Don't bother with it myself. I haven't had the flu for years and been ok so far. Needles don't worry me,it's seeing everyone who gets the jab go down with the flu that puts me off.

    As for hurt well relax the arm! What ever you do DONT squeeze your hand or tense your arm muscles. Even if the nurse asks you too.
    The more relaxed your arm is then no bruising afterwards! Never understood why they ask you to do this?
    Another thing you can do is lift one leg up if your lying down like in the dental chair this helps with taking your mind away from the pain.
    I hate needles too!
    And no I don't get the flue jab, don't believe in them for healthy people. Echinacea if I'm feeling one coming on and ginger tea with lemon grass and honey! You need a fresh ginger root and grate it then boil on the stove in a pot for twenty minutes.
    Bloody strong but dose the magic
    Add the honey once you pour

    You worry about needles FFS how do you think an animal feels with a hi speed needle blowing bits of it? Harden UP as John Kirwan would not say!

    I got the flu jab last year and I also got the worst case of the flu I have ever had last year so not gonna bother with it again, I also suffer from an acute fear of strangers stabbing me with pointy objects
