Swine Flu - H1N1

Just a quick entry to say I have been inoculated - TYVM Eastern Health! Now they warn you about side effects and all that - but is that not just feeding my hypochondria - now I have an aching arm, tight chest and various aches coming to the fore (but TBH I had the chest pain this morning - possibly based on all the call us before you have a heart attack ads!).

BTW - did you know this is a similar virus to the one in 1918 that wiped out more people than the First World War? erm I could recollect that incorrectly - but it makes an appearance in Bill Bryson's 'A complete History of Nearly Everything' a book I love to listen to!
