Had the first Astra Zeneca one yesterday. Feel slightly flu-ey, but not debilitating.

Flu-ey phoo-ey! You'll live.

CaptainBlack - 17 Feb 2021 10:17:28 (#3 of 317)

Thanks, doc.

Verdigris - 17 Feb 2021 10:20:26 (#4 of 317)

I'm having my Pfizer this afty. If you hear no more from me, you'll know why.

You’ll be too stiff to type?

The worse you feel, the more effect it is having.

No idea if that is true but may be of some comfort.

I have not had the vaccine.

Well, you're only 27. Be patient.

thisonehasalittlehat - 17 Feb 2021 10:38:00 (#9 of 317)

I am being patient, however I find myself eyeing old people with ungodly thoughts about plastic sheeting and the potential of their blood plasma.

I had a couple of days of feeling ropy after Astra Zeneca #1.

I must say, I was super-impressed with the efficiency of the process and well done to the volunteer marshals.

The elderly couple in front of me were complaining that it was an AZ day, not a Pfizer day. Manny Macaroon's propaganda is clearly having an impact.

bailliegillies - 17 Feb 2021 10:58:44 (#11 of 317)

Had AstraZeneca with minor problems, sore arm and slight headache. Otherwise felt OK.

How are you feeling and what was your experience?


I'm feeling fine now, I was wiped out after having the jab. Very strong flu symptoms for a couple of days, I'd've been bedridden for all that time were it not for #SacredHerb

I had the AZ vaccine

artant - 17 Feb 2021 11:28:09 (#13 of 317)

AZ for me too: headache the next day and sore arm (still a bit sore a week and a bit later).

CaptainBlack - 17 Feb 2021 11:37:15 (#14 of 317)

After the vanilla flu jab and this one as well, my immune system will be like Roy Keane in a bad mood.

SinnerBoy - 17 Feb 2021 11:40:33 (#15 of 317)

Feeling ropey for a couple of days is normal, after a vaccination. I've had 8 on the same day, on several occasions, for going to jobs in exotic places.

I don't really think that "a sore arm" really counts as a side effect....

Tomnoddy - 17 Feb 2021 11:43:06 (#16 of 317)

Pfizer 2 weeks and 5 days ago. I had a slightly sore arm for a day or so. Now, every ache, pain, and fart has my wife blaming the vaccine.

Electro2 - 17 Feb 2021 11:49:20 (#17 of 317)

AZ for me, last month, and no side effects whatsoever.

thisonehasalittlehat - 17 Feb 2021 11:53:07 (#18 of 317)

Sore arm is a result of a) someone sticking a needle in it and more likely b) the bruising created by injecting a volume of liquid into a space that was previously fully occupied.

Rather than an effect of the vaccine itself.

RosyLovelady - 17 Feb 2021 11:58:29 (#19 of 317)

I had the AZ vaccine and now I want a different one, to cover all the angles, as it were.

Verdigris - 17 Feb 2021 12:00:26 (#20 of 317)

But you've had all the ones from A to Z. Are you after numeric ones, now?
