The Best Time to Get the Flu Shot Is Earlier Than You Think.


It's technically still summer, but all adults and children older than six months should get a flu vaccine by the end of October 2018. Times Healthland, 09/04/2018.

Had my jab 3 weeks ago Jo.  I booked in using the over 65 process and they said that because I was under 65, they had to give me a different one.


I have been having flu jabs since 2010 or 2011 and have never got the flu.  However, it was around 2010/11 I first started noticing what turned out to be circulation problems and Scleroderma (diagnosed 2015).  It makes you wonder doesn't it?

Hi Dimarzio,


I was due to have the flu jab this week, but unfortunately I had a slight chest infection, so I've put it off for a week or so.


I'm due the over 65 (three strains); when I receive it I'm going to point out that I shouldn't be having the one that can boost my immune system. With scleroderma, the last thing we need is something to "boost" our already over active immune system!


Kind regards,
