I think you all are right.
Having been less layed up by colds since having the Flu jab.... coincidence or not....
I've continued to have short lived viruses both summer and winter since getting flu jabbed but have not experienced the harsh and lengthy non flu colds that affected me before having the jab.
It may be coincidence.... or may be that I have rock hard resilience and was previously infected with flu but suffered lesser symptoms. 🤩🙄😏
I support your findings zendaze. Until I had young kids constantly around me. I would be quite unlucky if I had any symptoms of a annual cold. Sometimes going more than 4years between them. Prior to that, if I did get a cold they would knock the crap out of me.
Since having the flu jab last year, the cold that I did get was no way near as serious or heavy on snott, sniffles our kids and Lyndsey suffered. It did hang around however for several weeks and moved to our lungs quite quickly. Coincidence of having had the flu virus? I think not, but happy to have been let off lightly.
