Had my swine flu jab several weeks ago (ambulance service so sorta needed it asap). Know a few of my workmates who were a bit dubious about having it , but went ahead anyways as they were afraid they may pick it up themselves , then go home and pass it on to there kids.
(swine flu is a lot more dangerous for those under 40 ..unlike seasonal flu which is normally more serious in those over 40 or with conditions like COAD , asthma etc)
The jab itself was painless , but i did wake up the next day feeling as if i had been hit with a baseball bat at the site of the injection (seems a common side effect) , some of my workmates did feel very ill for about two days after
