    More or less the same as the rest of th Europeans, the groups most vulnerable to flu get the shots, or if you want to get it from your housedoctor.
    People have paid sickdays here, for people working in the food industry i rather not would have to see them work through their flu illness handling food..... but stay home and til their flu is over get back to work.

    This discussion could be a matter of life or death.! Retired people are notified every years that 'flu jabs are available. In my town the surgery has a special Saturday morning when people just walk in give their names and have a jab. They have a coffee and cake counter and the place is packed out with chattering OAP's

    As for those employed at food processing factories they are not permitted to return to work for a number of days after feeling an improvement to return to work following the 'flu they contacted. Its the same with staff who have visited India or Pakistan, in fact any country outside Europe. They are not permitted to work again for three weeks to ensure a germination period has been passed

    I'm an AR op, and I get flu jabs from the NHS due to nearly kicking the bucket a year ago. And my bucket has a load of antenna wire in it. So it's all related to AR now!

    Well recent studies are suggesting the flu virus can be transmitted to other operators via radio waves over amateur radio bands.

    :p

    And,... Don't forget, a person can be exposed to the virus repeatedly if using "repeaters"..:eek:

    It seems like every newscast I've seen for the last week has had a story about the flu and how we should all get shots. I wonder how much of this effort is being pushed by the vaccine manufacturers?
