I had my flu jab last Saturday. The nurse told me I was entitled to both shingles and pneumonia jabs since aged 65.
It was news to me as it had never been offered before and I have had my flu jab every year since turning 65.
I have booked myself in and will have the jabs on Thursday. I'm all in favour of prevention.

Look at it another way - they will either kill you or cure you!

Saw my GP today so I made an appointment with the nurse for Shingles and flu jabs. I'd feel an idiot if I ignored 'em and then died of one of 'em.  ;D

????? How come? You'll be well past caring if you are an idiot when you get rolled into the oven.

Oh yes there is! You can have a good death or a bad one - I've seen both.
