Our expert says:
At the moment no flu vaccines are available, as all the current stock has been used up or bought by the government for public roll out to at risk patients. I take the flu vaccine every year - it is an inactive virus so it can't make you sick, it just stimulates your immune system to recognize the virus when you do come into contact with it. The swine flu vaccine was tested very quickly but so far no reports of serious side effects were noted.
