Corona Virus

Thanks! Fingers crossed it stays that way! Granada is very bad at the moment - they are shuffling infected patients around the hospitals - which seems crazy - as the hospitals are getting overwhelmed.

We tried to get the flu jab..... there is a huge waiting list this year. BUT - top tip from a medical professional - if you can, get a pneumonia jab at the same time. It might cost a few bob but it lasts 10 years a seemingly, if you are susceptible, then if Covid 19 does get you, pneumonia is one of the top ways to kick the bucket.
Got our flu jabs yesterday, pneumonia jab is free for 60 + patients

About the pneumonia jab. Early on in the first lockdown some expert said that it offered no protection from the ravages of covid-19. Sorry I can't provide a link as I can't remember who said it or when they did.

Just got a text from my local health centre asking me to book my jab, I really can't decide whether to go for it or not.

I get offered it every year
As I have never had flu I have always refused it.
For some reason this year I decided to have it

Had for about 10 years, protecting other half? Only once did I have a temp, for a few days, sometimes injection site becomes sore.

I had a rare moment of optimism this afternoon.

I'm normally more cynical than Edmund Blackadder on National Cynicism Day but I was thinking that maybe this year's flu season might not be as bad as feared.

It might be possible that the precautions which many millions of people are already taking against Covid-19 will also be effective against the annual flu bugs - washing hands regularly, not coughing/sneezing on each other, keeping a bit of social distance, not going to work if ill and so on.

Perhaps we should have been doing this for years... :)
 
In the depths of Southern Ontario here, very rural, numbers low compared to such as Toronto.
But......bets that Xmas will be cancelled, Santa will be on lockdown, elf's on unemployment benefit....and rumour is the reindeer are antimaskers.....:) :)

As I understand it, some folk that get C19 are susceptible to then getting pneumonia - which then does for you. Therefore, if you are already jabbed up you can see off the C19 element.

Or at least not peg out from pneumonia!

That's how I read it

Can somebody help me out? Yet again the papers are full pictures of large groups of people (in Wales this time) going out to get shitfaced as they'll be under curfew from today or whatever.

Sorry - I just don't get it.

They should spray the twats with blue dye (other colours are available) then if/when they turn up at hospital with a bit of flu, they can be legally euthanised instead of taking up a valuable hospital bed.

While it is mainly the UK, kids are also doing it in the big cities here to a certain extent, but the drinking culture is different here.
