A very interesting but overlooked BBC interview from 17th of March, only mentioned by Daily Mail, warns any Britons who get the flu jab on the NHS to cut down on socialising to avoid serious illness caused by the coronavirus, along with millions of asthma patients.
“Jonathan Van-Tam, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, said the advice to social distance for those high risk groups was ‘very strong’.
It follows the Governments advice that those who are at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus should be particularly stringent in following social distancing measures announced yesterday.
Britons demanded more clarity about who exactly fall into that bracket, considering health conditions are so common today”, writes the Daily Mail
The NHS deems adults with long term conditions, including respiratory diseases, necessary to receive a free flu jab every winter.
UPDATE August 2020:
A lot of scientific literature and reports have confirmed these statements in the meantime.
I will highlight just two, for now:
= this Hong Kong study published by Osford University Press and titled “Increased Risk of Noninfluenza Respiratory Virus Infections Associated With Receipt of Inactivated Influenza Vaccine“.
We identified a statistically significant increased risk of noninfluenza respiratory virus infection among TIV recipients (Table 3), including significant increases in the risk of rhinovirus and coxsackie/echovirus infection, which were most frequently detected in March 2009, immediately after the peak in seasonal influenza activity in February 2009“Increased Risk of Noninfluenza Respiratory Virus Infections Associated With Receipt of Inactivated Influenza Vaccine“
= this US Armed Forces study titled “Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference among Department of Defense personnel during the 2017-2018 influenza season”
Vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus and human metapneumovirus; however, significant protection with vaccination was associated not only with most influenza viruses, but also parainfluenza, RSV, and non-influenza virus coinfections.“Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference among Department of Defense personnel during the 2017-2018 influenza season”
