one of the few perks of working for the NHS is a free flu jab! Previous answer exactly right, you CANNOT catch flu, it is not a live vaccine, you can feel 'off colour' potentially for a few days and have a sore arm.  Anyone who does go down with  full blown flu after a jab, has had the bad luck to be already incubating it!

I used to get it free on the NHS till they suddenly moved the goalposts and said I didn't have Asthma bad enough to qualify.....

My first one after we returned to the UK was offered by my GP who told me "we are recommending it to all our older patients"!!!
