We've been asked by a pharmaceutical company to find out what Mumsnetters think about seasonal influenza (aka the flu!) and your views on vaccinating your child(ren) against it. Please note that this survey is about seasonal flu, not avian (bird) or swine or any other type of pandemic flu. Seasonal influenza is characterised by the following symptoms which last for at least a few days:

- Sudden high temperature
- Aches and pains
- Dry cough
- Nausea
- Loss of appetite
- Lethargy

The survey is open to all UK Mumsnetters with at least one child. Please click here to take part.

Everyone who takes part and enters their details at the end will be entered into a prize draw to win £250 of Love2Shop vouchers.

Thanks and good luck with the prize draw!

Custardo - sorry about that - was an error in the survey script - should be fixed now, thanks for alerting us to it!

thats quite alright newgirl Helen, if it had been another member of staff - i wouldn't have bothered telling them as i dont think they work nearly as hard as you do

certain people always in the toilets doing the makeup for her next telly appt.

I would like to know which company is conducting this survey

Cattleprod Thu 21-Jul-11 17:54:18

Sounds like they are developing a vaccination that's not an injection confused.

Doobydoo Thu 21-Jul-11 17:55:42

Think it rather odd to say 'a pharmaceutical company' with no mention of which onehmm

There's an error on the initial question about whether your kids got flu last year as well - there is a YES missing from the first toggle.

I started answering, but tbh, I don't want to be involved in big-pharma finding out how to better utilise scare tactics market their products.

MynameisnotEarl Thu 21-Jul-11 19:34:21

I was the only one in my family to have flu last year and it was really miserable!

I think I deserve to win for that.

Whomovedmychocolate - yes, you're right - another glitch I'd missed - should be fixed now! Thanks for letting us know.

whomovedmychocolate Thu 21-Jul-11 19:47:37

I think I should have appended the phrase 'I have PMT - I may not be rational about flu at the moment and you did ask some odd questions' to my response TBH grin

TheRealMBJ Thu 21-Jul-11 19:49:56

Why are you still at work NewGirl? Did you draw the short straw?

The Mumsnet Insight team never sleeps MBJ! I've responded to your fridge query btw.

Tee2072 Thu 21-Jul-11 20:11:31

I filled it out but was disappointed that there was no choice for 'wanted them to have it, was told they couldn't' which was where I was at with my son last year. Despite him (possibly) being asthmatic he wasn't allowed any flu jabs.

MissTinaTeaspoon Thu 21-Jul-11 20:30:25

I thought that too tee for the same reason - I would have taken dd with me when I had mine had that been an option

toomuchmonthatendofthemoney Thu 21-Jul-11 20:48:52

done. took me straight out to the MN home page, assume its ok and my survey has gone through?

aristocat Thu 21-Jul-11 21:16:45

smile good point Tee about refusal for the jab!

Tee2072 Thu 21-Jul-11 21:19:23

Thank you aristo. smile

TheSnickeringFox Thu 21-Jul-11 22:51:07

Done. One of the questions was worded very perculiarly. I didn't understand what it was asking! <fick emoticon>
