I had the flu jab for the first time yesterday. I have an auto immune disease and ended up in hospital with flu last year, so my doctors kind of forced me to. I am going to get the vaccin for swine flu in November, too. People with my type of illness can die from swine flu, I'm in the highest risk category, I'd rather not have the jab but it's necessary. I had almost forgotten what it felt like to get a vaccine, I haven't had any since I was 12, but now I remember... my arm is sore!
