I may also  get some answers about this Heamophilus Influenza bug I am carrying around in my lungs too.

After the last flu jab,   I certainly don't want to have another one. It made me so ill I don't want to go there again.

I dont see the point in putting more bugs into the body by giving a flu jab, if you already carry the virus in the first place, it just does not make any sense

But as this is a local hospital in our town, i am hopeful that everything will be in place this time.
