It helps to be a little bit 'ocd' when you are a modeller. I hate not being able to find things when I need them. %)

I've been offered one at work since my early twenties and never taken it up.  Rediculus at such young age.  Make your own mind up: are you at a recommended age, need one for medical reasons or otherwise?  I'm not an anti-vaxer by any means but do it when it's medically supposed to be right I guess.

I'm still on the fence. It made my mother poorly for weeks one year. On another year the vax was completely wrong for the pending strains  %%

Our works are offering the flu jab to all colleagues for free (we have 18+ age group up to 80+ in rare cases) Anti-vaxers are candidates for the Darwen award in my opinion

Started at 60, and this month will be my 18th flu jab.
No side effects in any way ever.

Iíve been having flu shots for over 20 years with no ill effects. No effects from the Astra Zeneca shots either.

A good friend of mine who was a healthy athlete  caught the flue about 20 years ago, developed into severe bronchitis, it totally wrecked him, deteriorated into a wheezing breathless shell of his former self . As soon as it became available my wife and myself have taken the flue vaccine and been grateful for it.

I have been having the jab for several years and as one other pointed out there was a spell over two years where they made the wrong choice of strain and it was not effective, apparently they have to select a likely candidate 6 months in advance.

I'm waiting to hear my appointment date  :-))


Today I replaced the front brakes on the wife's 207


I bought the parts March 2020 and its passed the MOT twice since.
I thought I won't push it for a third  %%


A good warm day to do it and I found the receipt in the box. How can they discount this so much and still profit?
