    I am in receipt of benefits (he says, rather embarrassingly), so even at the tender age of 42, do you think that I would qualify for the flu jab as well?

    I just hope that an equivalent inoculation for coronavirus isn't too far away - needles and syringes might not be my cup of tea, but it is worth my left arm becoming a pincushion if any sort of vaccination was to be made available tomorrow.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    If you have certain health issues then you'll qualify. My friend is 40 and has asthma, he qualifies for it.

    Do situations like anxiety and depression count?

    If we’re all wearing masks,washing our hands regularly and social distancing,that should cut down the chances of getting the flu in the first place.We might get through the whole Winter without catching a cold!

    I always have some Carex liquid soap gel between the hot and cold water taps on the kitchen and bathroom sink that I use the dispenser when I wash my hands - I am allergic to actual soap so that is what I use.

    The wearing of face masks on public transport makes me anxious, but as we are all in the same boat, I suppose that there is safety in numbers at the end of the day.

    I don't think they qualify George, it's mainly chronic illnesses, I get one with working for the NHS, my advice is continue what you're doing regarding wearing a face mask and using your carex.

    Stock up on your Vitamin C intake too, I get tablets which I disolve in water, it makes a lovely orange drink, home bargain sell them for about a quid, they come in a tube and taste delicious.

    It's the ones who don't do any of what you mentioned we have to worry about
