Oo, just got an email from NHS Direct inviting me to book the latest jab, which I've just done for next Friday.
I got one from them. I Went through the process. Got to a point and it said no need/ shouldn't be here( or some such)!!?? So also had one to do through my gp, so I did that,instead. so it's flu jab 28th and covid 2nd.
In the past week I've had both flu & covid jabs, so hopefully I'll be okay (still haven't caught it yet).
Mrs TG got the booster and a flu jab yesterday, but only because she qualifies as a carer as she sees her mum and step dad a couple of times a week who are respectively near-disabled and diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I can’t get one for a couple of weeks, not old enough.
I had the flu jab last Wednesday and the booster this morning.
Its like we need "servicing" every six months nowadays. I hope yours came with a free lube job.
I've been having a yearly flu jab for the past 20-30 years. Tablets are the thing, I don't know anyone over sixty who's not on a regime of daily tablets. I'm on three, two for blood pressure & a statin.
I had my Bivalent Booster jab last Wednesday in my left arm, and my senior flu shot in my right. Absolutely no side effects, not even a rash at the injection sites. I've had a COVID cocktail mix of injections. The first two shots were Moderna, and the last two have been Pfizer. Added to my two previous bouts of COVID, I should be "optimized" for the Fall and Winter.
But the last shot was bi. Not sure if that is appropriate for my self-identity as I have never before identified as Bi! Groan.
I am getting a COVID test today as I have another surgical procedure on Thursday. Have seen the inside of a lot of doctor's offices these past two years...sigh!
