If you're working full time you can't really afford to get the flu. It's well worth paying for one.
It's easy to spend £20 on a bottle of benylin and a few beecham powders. Why not spend £12 on a flu jab instead?

Or, if you are a pensioner, diabetic or have breathing problems go to your doc and get one for free.

No! Seagulls are not real. We all know that they are the souls of dead mariners who are quite hungry, having been dead for a long time; which is why they pinch your sandwiches. :yahoo:

If I get the flu I carry on getting paid as normal.

Then its a cold not the flu [eusa_naughty.gif]

The flu is where you can't get out of bed... even if the beds on fire. If you're not taking this seriously....you never had flu.

If I get a cold, the flu, stub my big toe or brake an arm mountain climbing, I get paid while I recover.

Money will not save you from the flu [eusa_naughty.gif]
Flu is a killer and it's the reason they have a yearly vacation program.
Remember doctors will not give you antibiotics for flu.

Early this year there a was a flu bug going round and people kept catching the new flu strain. Some had it for 12 weeks. The cause was too few people had a vacation and the strain mutated. [9n5.gif]

This year the NHS is offering children a nasal spray flu vaccine and public transport will have free antibacterial hand wash dispensers to try and limit the exposure and spread of new strains.

The whole system fails if too few adults are vacated. If your working with someone who a "flu carrier".... a cycle will start like we all saw in January. You catch the flu, take time off, get over it, return to work, catch it again, take time off, get over it, return to work, catch it again.

Without a flu jab, you stand no chance of beating it.

I'll be going for my jab, that wasn't the question I was answering. You said people who work full time cant afford to get the flu. I can as I get paid and I'm pretty sure most other people in full time work do as well.

Few get "paid sick leave" or holiday paid in the UK.

See:

Some are charged too for being sick.
