Every year the flu vacines change to include any new strains that are around. I have had them each year for 4 years, including the swine flu. And each time the jab site is tender and bruised. this year, I was jabbed rather harder than usual into my tiny muscle, and since September, have had terrible pain when pruning shrubs in the garden, and the arm right down to the forearm hurts. I assume the nurse, damaged a nerve as my muscle tissue is practically non existant, and hope it repairs itself soon as much more pruning to do this month. Don't normally have any other symptoms though, that i have noticed
I had mine on Saturday. I woke up on Sunday feeling rubbish - headache, upset stomach. I pretty much stayed in bed and slept all day, and then had Monday off work. Still better than a dose of flu though!
Thank god!! I had mine last week,have had a headache bunged up nose an generally feel poo since, thought it was a reaction or something because people have said "you don't get any side effects"it's almost like a cold without being full blown!
Yeah I have the jab every year as asthmatic and always feel a bit ropey after with a heavy cold for a week. I'm happy to live with this as the alternative of flu is much worse I ended up with pneumonia after a bout of flu 5 years ago and would never ever wish that on anyone especially with a new baby.
