I am not convinced the flu shot has a high success rate and have been advised to leave it alone for now. In the UK apparently, according to some reports, they have a large stockpile.

I get a flu shot most years and am thankfully spared it however when I go overseas I can't get one before I go that coresponds to the prevailing strain so I get it on holidays. :woohoo:
