Why You Should Get The Free NHS Flu Jab 2017 & 2018 If Eligible | NHS Flu Vaccine Influenza Vaccine

December 18, 2019

Flu jabs please watch this three-minute video. As it’s important and share on because you could save a life. so let’s be crystal clear flu kills! for many though it’s an unpleasant illness
which can last over a week with symptoms like extreme tiredness and weakness, too
unwell to do usual activities and other symptoms like chills, fever, headaches,
joint pain and many more but for the most vulnerable in society such as children, the elderly, pregnant women and those with long term medical conditions
including heart disease, lung disease, diabetes and many more the flu can be
extremely dangerous and in some cases fatal so I’ve heard all the medical
myths no I’ve never had the flu jab before and I’ve never had the flu so I don’t think I’ll need it but my favourite one well I used to know somebody who never had flu before but as soon as he got the flu a job he started getting flu every year so here are some scientific facts because pharmacists love facts! Fact number one!
studies show of the 250 to 500 thousand people who die every year in the world
of flu 90% of them are over 65 I know shocking right! Facts number two! so flu vaccines don’t contain any live virus so it’s dead so it’s physically
impossible to catch flu from it no matter what your friends tell you. Fact
number three the flu vaccine takes 10-14 days to become fully
effective once your immune system has fully kicked in so get it done sooner and to be honest I wish I made this video a bit earlier fact number four! flu jabs have
a good safety record you might get a slight temperature and a few aching
muscles after you’ve had it for a couple of days but other than that reactions are
quite rare you know everybody sees and hears how
busy hospitals are especially during the winter and studies have shown that the
flu jab can reduce hospitalisation so let’s play our part and get vaccinated
to help all the hard working NHS staff now that we know how important the flu jab is let’s see how many people actually got it in 2016-17 statistic number one!
65 years and over well last year 70% of you guys got vaccinated that’s fantastic but still there’s about 30% left so this year let’s do it! statistic number two! for those under 65 in one or more clinically at-risk group the uptake was only 48.6% now that’s less than half so come on guys this year let’s get more people
vaccinated and here’s why it’s so important getting the vaccine is the best way to
protect yourself and your loved ones and I would urge anyone who is offered the free NHS flu jab to get vaccinated so let’s play our part and help all the hard-working
NHS staff this winter so what can you do well if you know you’re eligible for a

    Great video highlighting the importance of the flu vaccination. Good job dispelling some of the myths. I run flu clinics and vaccinate hundreds of people, and I'm still surprised at the sheer number of patients that believe the vaccine can give you the flu. Keep up the great work for our great profession.

    What percentage of those would caught the flu had been vaccinated V percentage of those who had not, would be an interesting statistic.

    We don't need or want a flu shot, and yes they can cause problems. 600 flu deaths.  This is how they count flu deaths. So figures are usually 5 to 8 times reality.  They use "exsess winter deaths, How many more deaths there are in four winter months to 4 summer months. So if you fall on the ice and die you are a flu death, If an 90 year old gets a cold and die, they are a flu death.  There is in reality about 300 to 800 flu deaths a year in the UK. 80 to 90% of flu deaths are over 65. Above video said 90%.  
           So if you take 85% off 500 flu deaths a year for example. you get about 75 people dying of the flu under 65. So population of UK is 65 million, you have about 1.3 chance in a million of dying of the flu, and probably less if healthy, don't worry about it.
        Do you know anyone who has died of the flu?
           We know the flu shot is on average 41% effective and often much less.  See here. Average 41%.
         Then Google  "Serial flu shot problem", where the more flu shots you get, the less effective they become.
      Also all vaccines and drugs have risk. They say there is a 1.5 in a million chance of getting GBS. So is the risk/benefit ratio in favour of the flu shot.  There is also other suspected long term problems with taking a yearly flu shot. There are also studies showing you are more likely to get respiratory track infection if you get a flu shot.. Its all here.

    Heres a fact you missed I was taught in school – Viruses can change they mutate into new strains. Thus making the jab redundant.

    How much do you get paid by big pharma to peddle this..

  • Reply Gettem Rollin December 18, 2018 at 6:27 pm

    You dont even know what flu strain is going to be prevalent so every year a bunch of 'experts' guess what strain they should immunize against .. Its all a money making exercise for big Pharma.
