I suppose if we don't get one then we are sure to get some other strain. What is your advice for avoiding flu? Personally I take my annual flu vaccination but leave the rest to fate. It is some years since I did get a bad dose so I suppose I am doing the right thing or am perhaps just luckier than some. If and when you do get flu how do you handle it?
Stay upright and as active as possible for as long as possible. Stay warm. Loads of hot drinks. Paracetamol's as good as anything else for fever. Keep eating as normally as possible. Accept that if you've got flu for real, you'll feel out of it for at least three days.
Thanks for the reply Aitchbee, I can only speak from my own experience. I would be happy to pay for it anyway but never been asked to not even about 20yrs back when I was fit and healthy. I think it depends on the area you live in.
Only Free at the Docs for qualifying groups as Aitchbee says, but anyone can get it from most Pharmacies for a small cost which seems to be round about £8 -£10 but only £5 at ASDA, and most seem to do it on a no appointment walk-in basis.
When I was working we could have a Flu Jab paid for by the Company regardless of age.
