I'm wondering if anyone can help me, I'm booked in to have my flu jab and whooping cough jab tomorrow but I ended up in hospital yesterday with a UTI and have been given antibiotics, can I still have the two jabs? Iv tried googling it but that's not really helping x

They aren't live vaccinations so I can't see a reason why you couldn't have them but it's best to ask the nurse before getting them done.

How many weeks are you? If delaying is possible I'd do that. Huge attack on your system otherwise!

I'm 25 weeks now, I could delay it for another week I suppose

I had no ill effects from mine except a sore arm. Id keep. The appointment and ask.

I'm 32 weeks and only had mine a few days ago. My midwife hadn't talked to me. I declined flu jab!
