    Default Coronavirus: Top medic warns anyone who gets the flu jab should stay at home

    By Lila Randall

    Britons who get the annual winter flu jab fall into the government’s “high risk” category and should self-isolate, a top medic warns.
    The news comes as the public demand more clarity from the government over who falls into that category, given common underlying health problems.

    Jonathan Van-Tam, deputy chief medical officer for England, told BBC Breakfast this morning: "I don't want to go into enormous detail into every single risk group but we are saying it is the people who are offered flu vaccines, other than children, who fit into that risk category, people for whom the advice is very strong about social distancing."
    The flu vaccine is available on the NHS every winter and is routinely given to adults over 65, people with medical conditions and pregnant women, to prevent serious complications from flu like pneumonia.

    Patients most at risk include people with asthma, cancer or those have had an organ transplant.

    That the flu vaccine puts adults over 65 at greater risk for coronavirus is truly disgusting, especially since numerous studies show the flu vaccine is less than 15% effective for the elderly.

    And here in Brazil the government health system is pushing the flu jab for older people right now, even though there are corona virus cases and deaths. It boggles the mind.

    There is a view point that the recent big push for mandatory flu jabs in Italy was responsible for the severity of the Covid outbreak in that country. Makes sense to me.

    This is terrifying. Glad I'm almost 80; maybe I won't live long enough to be coerced.
