Really? COVID 19 didnít arrive until March so you should start your comparison there not in January. Next remember there is a vaccine for flu so it stays fairly stable. CV19 starts to come down only once lockdown is a few weeks into effect. Take away the lockdown and that trend doesnít start to come down but keeps rising. I think you did a great job of showing that lockdown worked and we are going to need a new national lockdown in the next 2-3 weeks, but I donít think that was your intention.

I do wish people wouldn't try and used badly/deliberately skewed data in order to try and support radical points of view that just don't tally with reality. These data were recently published by the ONS. Note carefully the ratio of deaths from influenza this year (the very small column at the left) with those from Covid-19 (the significantly larger columns on the right. This isn't data that has been fiddled with to make a point, it's just true information from deaths so far this year in England and Wales.

Had my jab yesterday.

Arm is not aching any more than it usually does after the jab. So no signs of anything unusual yet this year.

For some reason - I always feel a little bit dizzy and odd for about 10 minutes after my flu jub. Same this year. But nothing out of the ordinary. Let's hope it works as in previous years. Last time I had what I think was real flu was a few years ago before I started getting the jab.

Bemused as to the reaction one little prick can seemingly induce.
Went to surgery. Had injection. Came home.

Had my jab yesterday then stood by the radio when i got home, to check it the microchip they put in me interfered with Radio 2. So far it seems OK.

My wife's had her jab now, and has been fine, so I reckon my experience was just some sort of oddball reaction. Never had it happen before though. Good to know that most people don't seem to have a rough day or two after this. Still, a day or so of feeling a bit rough is still a lot better than getting the flu, from what I remember of having it once, years ago.

Might be worth visiting your local vet and asking them to check you with their ID chip scanner

My wife and I went to a drive through jab centre last Sunday at 09.30 am. It was outdoors on the site of a demolished abattoir.
Only two nurses in attendance .Put your arm out of the window, quick jab and away you go back home in five minutes.
No bad reactions.

Depends if it's DAB or FM.

Had the jab on Wednesday afternoon. No raised bump at the injection site, no sore arm, no slight fever ..... nothing. Hope it wasn't just distilled water in the pre-filled syringe ...
