    I would imagine they will be asked for proof of the first virus?

    Given they will have given their details prior to the first jab this would also be recorded by the centre.

    I had both Pzizer earlier this year and have tested positive for Covid this week so donít assume the jabs a safety net.

    Iím one of many. Runny nose and headache. Easy to pass off as hay fever.

    I would very much expect that anyone attending these will be asked all the appropriate questions before being vaccinated. I think that's due diligence. There's no legislating for stupidity.

    Asked and checked against the database before being allowed in. Iíve been queuing since 8.30 as a walk in & still not jabbed.

    Same mess as my first jab, whereas my wife experienced a well oiled machine at the same place for her first.

    Can think of nicer places to spend my Sunday morning.

    What do you expect? If hundreds of people turn up for a walk-in there's bound to be waiting around.

    Spent far longer waiting in A&E or in hospital departments even with an appointment.

    Had my second Pfizer jab on Thursday. Same as the first one, just a sore arm, nothing more.

    I thought that was the idea of the jabs though, not to stop you catching it altogether but to lessen the severity of it if you catch it meaning less chance of needed hospital treatment.

    Thatís right but many think once they have had the jab they are bombproof and itíll
    All go away.

    An entire brigade of Argentinian polo players were ahead, so was down to 6 jabs an hour due to the translations required, so despite there only being 20 people ahead as it opened, nothing was moving with any great speed. Once they were cleared it picked up pace.

    But as you say even in the trials efficacy was around 90%. That is full protection there is still a risk. It isnít a guarantee! Hence, why social distancing and mask wearing are still useful until numbers come up to above 70-80% vaccination of adults

    Very unlucky but it sounds like the vaccines are still helping and potential stopping the illness from being worse than it could have been.

    Good luck and get well soon

    If anyone watched the Andrew Marr show this morning he was talking about having Covid quite bad last week despite having had both jabs.

    Yes I saw that, surprised he wasn't isolating and off TV for more than 1 week.

    61 year old cancer survivor, stroke survivor, gets a disease that's killed millions of people, but only has cold-like symptoms and is back at work a week later rather then being in hospital on a ventilator.

    No, he's not unlucky. Not unlucky in the slightest, this is exactly what the vaccines are supposed to achieve.

    I had my second moderna jab yesterday and I feel like Iíve been hit by a bus today. Iíve only just woken up after a terrible nights sleep.

    I felt absolutely fine after the first one, so this took me by surprise!

    Hope you feel better soon. There's a lot of variability, but overall the reactions to second mRNA vaccine doses (Pfizer and Moderna) are worse than to the first, while the reverese is true for AZ (e.g. from Zoe app data).

    There remains a slight concern that third & subsequent doses of mRNA vaccines may lead to progressively worse reactions, but it looks like we'll find out one way or the other this autumn...

    Side effects seem to affect people differently. After the second dose of Pfizer I felt OK till I set off on a brisk walk with Mrs W, after 10 minutes I felt like I`d been walking for several hrs, just felt tired, and that's most unlike me. Had I not gone for the walk I would've claimed no side effects at all but that clearly wasn`t the case.

    It'll be interesting to see how folks react to booster jabs.

    I had minimal/no reactions with either of my AZ jabs. Hopefully that isn't an indicator that they were ineffective.

    Same here! Had my second jab last night around 6 pm and was ok till about 4 pm today. Then I hit a wall Ö and now Iím just crawling around the house. The first one was easier. Wasnít expecting this either.

    And new study out today from 500k in each cohort that you are 8 times more likely to suffer a clotting event from covid than you are from vaccination.

    Thatís because youíre not fit.

    Iím 63, still get to the gym frequently and manage to run a few miles, eat a questionable diet and probably drink more than I should. I had very mild reactions to both original vaccinations (pfizer) and absolutely no reaction to a pfizer booster last week. Also had a flu jab and that didnít affect me.

    Clearly, my fitness regime has prevailed, itís obvious! Exercise hard, and drink more whisky........what other conclusion can I reach?

    I had my booster on Monday so hopefully that will help me through the Winter.

  31. #531

    The wife and I had a Pfizer booster in one arm and flu jab in the other 10 days ago on the Sat. Both of us had a day of Pfizer arm ache on the Sunday more so than on the Sat. Nothing from the flu one. I had really bad indigestion all day on Sunday (or was it my son's cooking the night before?) the wife just felt tired. Both arm aches and anything else was gone by Monday. I had nothing from the initial AZ ones nor when I had Covid prior to any jabs.

    Heard that a lot from the Moderna, lots of my friends have had symptoms similar to yours.

    Got Pfizer on my first two and everything was perfect, waiting for the booster shot, even if it's Moderna it'll be worth it.

    Got a note to self isolate because someone close to me is positive. Strange because I have been insanely busy working from home and have gone nowhere for days. How can I possibly be tagged?
    But like a good boy Iíve done a lateral flow and also a drive through PCR test but I am finding myself questioning the flagging system now.

    I had my booster a few weeks ago they asked what I'd had previously Pfizer which I confirmed by showing them the card I had been given on the first injection and I was given Pfizer again. No problems here.

    Had my Covid jab on Friday.

    Iím Interested in these side effects. Performing simple searches brings up the anti-vac nonsense not objective experience.

    I had AZ for first two and then Pfizer for the booster. Iíve had two weeks of discomfort in my arm, spasms and weakness in my arm, pains, pins and needles. Asked a doctor yesterday if I should still be experiencing this and the advice is it should go within four weeks !

    Had the AZ jab back in June and just got a text to book my booster - Going next Thursday morning.

    I had a sore arm the day after my first jab, but nothing after the second, so will be interesting to see a) what vaccine I get and b) if I get any side effects.

    My wife counts as a health worker, so had hers a few weeks ago, with no real issues.

    Absolute rubbish. I had a bad reaction to the second and third dose and I run three times a week, lift twice a week, yoga 3 times a week and still roll jiu jitsu.

    You're too fit, that's the trouble.

    I don't do bugger all except take my dog for a walk and had two AZ's and a booster Pfizer with no problems.

    I really think itís random. So many benefits go with daily dog walking, so donít underestimate that.
