had a letter offering me a shingles jab.  Can't have it though until four weeks after the flu jab.
Last year had both at the same visit.

Had my Flu jab last Thursday along with my Yearly check up. They discovered I didn't have The wandering Ab Dabs or Malaria or Bent Politicians Syndrom. So that's me sorted for the next twelve Month's.

We don't have "jabs" for flu  etc.. Instead we rely on Homoeopathy remedys...and I have done for nigh on 60 years.

Yes we are weird. But fairly fit with it.

I think I prefer 1 jab a year to spending 60 years taking Homoeopathy stuff that made me weird. whistle

I think anyone who uses homeopathy and gets away with it are lucky.  I will stick with an annual jab.

And so will I .... I will refrain from ridiculing Homeopathy, although I will admit to being sorely tempted !!

I didn't believe in acupuncture until I experienced it when having minor surgery in Hong Kong. It was as effective as a local anaesthetic.

Whilst I am not a proponent of homeopathy - I can believe it is efficacious for minor ailments if the person truly believes in it. A case of mind over matter. Despite the huge advances in medical science - we still have much to learn about how the brain functions and controls our bodies.

Acupuncture is truly brilliant.  I had years of recurring back problems, spending up to a couple of weeks at a time unable to drive, and lying on the floor.  The doctor sent me to the local hospital as the physio there did acupuncture. Twelve treatment and I have never had a problem since. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
