    I had mine done on 14th Sep. I feel safer having it. There were deaths again last year.

    I had mine last week with no adverse reactions apart from a enormous bruise due to the anti-clotting drug I have to take.

    Had my flu jab on Satuday and have had symptoms of a heavy cold for the past 3 days just like last time. I NEVER ge colds.

    The only good thing is that I am confident I will be fine again tomorrow.

    I know someone else who had the same problems las year and his year again too/

    I know his jab had the same components as last time so I expected athe same reaction but hinking about it I wondered if I shouldn't have been less likely to suffer the reaction the second ime.
    Could any of the scientifically minded mebers eplain this to me please?
