Yes, agree there, just wonder what they were "vaccinating" us with.
It was an annual event , more given when posted over seas . I served 2 1/2 years in Libya.
National service lads were bribed into taking part in experiments at Porton Down in Wiltshire .
After a cure for the common cold and influenza.
At least this is the line they were fed .

I was also in the RAF. I was in the Asain flu outbreak when I was in school and 3 flu outbreaks on 2 different RAF camps, and it didn't touch me. So in late 65 when at RAF Odiham I was called to see the MO, who put me under pressure to "volunteer" to go to Porton to help them develop a flu vaccine. When I walked out of Sick Quarters I was met by my sections CO's clerk, who took me to see the "Boss".. He warned me that if I volunteered I would be charged with whatever they could think of .. He told me that what they were actually doing at Porton was developing nerve agents (chemical warfare) and antidotes for the same.

Healthspan Saw Palmetto complete capsules have done me the world of good. And no, I don’t work for them. Small possibility of a massive coincidence and everyone is unique of course but my experience was:
3 yrs ago definitely enlarging prostate, some blood in urine few times over couple of months, starting to go to loo at night and hard to get out dribble at end of urination. Researched and got onto this product and after a month everything settled and no issues since. Definitely reduced size, no discomfort or toilet difficulty or needing to go at night. I don’t take it every day but most. Fifty yrs old and realising need to look after the body I used to just expect to work whatever I threw at it!
Looked it up: " ideal for men who want to maximise their sexual and reproductive health, naturally. " Alternative to Viagra?

I take it every day and I can assure you it doesn’t and it isn’t. 🤪
Also, so far little change in prostate issues, so I don’t know what it does do!
