I have both of them booked

I was only going to have flu but now considering Covid too as this variant is different.

I have my flu jab booked with my GP next weekend. I’m not getting my covid one (I haven’t been offered it) but I think I’d still decline just due to there being no research into the effects on having the vaccination during pregnancy

I have my flu jab booked for next week and my covid jab is due next month which I am planning on getting x

Had my flu today!

Not planning on getting either but am booked in for whooping cough.

@Laura how do you feel after? I am thinking of booking mine next week but worried about getting sick from it

@Roselyn I felt deadly after my whooping cough but feeling okay from the flu jab, just a bit woozy and tired x

I'll be getting both but I do every year. I normally get it before a day off/when I don't have much on as can leave you feeling a bit rough for a day - some years are completely fine though but I'd rather be prepared!

I already had all my Covid jab pre pregnancy. And I got my flu yesterday

I got a text about my flu and covid vaccine today. I don't really plan on either. I've never opted for the flu jab before and I won't be socialising anywhere near as much from the next couple of weeks either. I'm definitely not getting the covid jab as I felt absolutely awful after my first 3 and in all honesty only got them so I could travel. I don't like the lack of research in getting the vaccine during pregnancy either

Had my flu and whooping and felt fine after both :) xx

I’ve had both! It makes me relieved to think the babies will have some covid protection already when they’re born as they will likely be premature (twins) xx

I had my Covid jab yesterday and will get my flu in a couple of weeks. I didn't get invited but saw I was eligible so booked at my nearest pharmacist via 111's website. I feel fine so far, definitely not as painful as the whooping cough.

Are people leaving a space in between their flu and covid jabs? I’ve booked them 5 days apart but wondering if that’s not enough.

I think 5 days would be plenty, I left mine 3 days just so I didn’t feel like I’d been run over! I’m 24 hours after my covid shot and I feel fine. Was actually hoping it knackered me out so I could get a good sleep!!

@Alex ok thank you! 😊 I guess if I’m still feeling ropey by the time it’s the second jab I can postpone!

@Alice its strange I spoke to the midwife yesterday and she advised to get them together. When I tried at the pharmacist they said I should wait 2 weeks 🤷‍♀️

For what it’s worth, my pharmacist did offer them both at the same time!

@Kathryn so confusing!! 🤯 I’d rather get them both done fairly soon as I want to be protected as early as possible. Will see what the pharmacist and midwife tell me!

I’ve never had a flu jab in my life so I’m not having that & I haven’t had any covid vaccines at all so won’t be having that either. I did have my whooping cough 2wks ago though, I’m 28+3 x

Im getting the whooping cough jab but not flu or covid xx

@Laura did you have any side effects from the flu jab? X
