So no flu jab for me...

I arranged an appointment with Pat's doctor, just round the corner, to have a flu jab.
Went to the pharmacy next door to pick up the vaccine.
Into the waiting room to commune with Spotify for a while (currently Fauré songs).
Went in about 1/2 hour late - not so bad - and he asked, "anything else...?"
"Well I do have a little rash on my shoulder. It's round, so I wonder if it's fungal..."
"Let's have a look. Oh no, come over to the light. No, I think that's a zona."
A quick discussion of symptoms and causes and a confirmation search on google and it transpires that I have shingles.
So no flu jab for me unless and until it clears up.
