I certainly wouldn't be waiting longer than I had to.

There was a lot of talk of having a flu jab done at the same time in the other arm. Any mention of that for next week?

I have had the call and been told through my Rheumatology specialist that because I am on Retuximab I probably have no antibodies even after having the first 2 jabs I still have to have the booster with my flu jab ASAP so I can have my next infusion of joint juice (Retuximab ) which is due next month.but I have to wait 6 weeks from the booster before I can have the JJ.

Good to hear they are so on the ball though, Annie! Hopefully you can have the jab and delay Rituximab by as short a time as possible. It's the worsening condition while you are waiting though... :cry:

Hi folks. Got the email the day boosters started. Booked it which was very easy took a minute. The place i went wasn't the best organized which was the only downside and this time wasn't ran by the NHS. Had the jab yesterday. Arm sore, feel a bit "urgh" but all very mild and will pass in a day or so. All in all, im sorted. It was the Biontech. And yes they are asking if you want the flu jab at the same time. Im getting mine through work so said no but will get it in a few weeks. Missus gets hers tomorrow.

Hi, Yup doing our, use us as dartboard bit, on the 21/10/21.:) I'd recommend sticking to the recommended time triggers as I have a strong feeling one or two people with a lot more knowledge on immunisation have made the call :unsure:

Had my flu jab on Sat at the local practice. (y) A very well organized set up. Joined the queue (at a social distance) and moved quite quickly through. All had arms at the ready and remained standing. Gave name and DOB, answered the usual questions and jabbed. When I booked my jab I thought they might ask if I wanted booster at the same time but because a month early it was not offered. No worries. If they use the same conveyor belt system, job done.

My daughter had her 3rd Covid and her Flu jabs last week. She is a Doctor.

My Friend in Cuba also had his 3rd Covid last week, two weeks after his 2nd.
Because of the US embargo they have developed their own version.

I'm CEV , no sign of my 3rd at the moment.

Going sat. for flu and 3rd covid, after reading # 13 I am rather worried if it's one in each arm, how the hell am I going to see which one is going in first?😳😳🤔

Had the booster plus flu vaccine on Tuesday, one in each arm. No major side effects apart from a really uncomfortable night with sweats and muggy headache. The Covid jab ached a while longer than the flu jab (2days).

Whatever it takes eh?
