I know people on dmards and biologics should have flu jab. They gave a combined flu and swine flu last year and it did make it worse for a few days.
Doesn't affect meds at all.

I swear by the flu jab. We have enough to deal with. My advice as long as your GP says its ok go for it.

The reason more people are being invited to take the flu jab is simply because it has been made more available. The Goverment have got this one right for a change Once you are on the books you will be called every year. My advice is take it. Fingers crossed no flu for 6yrs that can only be a bonus for all of us. We have enough to be dealing with. Take Care X
