Up till now, I’ve only ever had 1 Flu vaccination and that was several years ago. This year, it had crossed my mind that I needed to do something about it, but the thought got lost That is until my Husband developed Flu Now, I find that the first appointment available for the Flu shot at my local Health Centre, is CHRISTMAS EVE It’s a Nurse led clinic, apparently Doctors don’t give Flu shots
Last year (in the UK) there were reports of the regular Flu vaccine being ‘ineffective’ to certain groups e.g. over 65s and those with specific conditions where the immune system is compromised. So, this year an ‘enhanced’ formula has been offered. ‘Fluad’ contains an adjuvant (this means it provides more antibodies, and gives longer lasting immunity).
So, shall I shop around or wait till Christmas Eve My local Pharmacy is out of stock re that specific formula, I really should have thought about it before now xB
