Had the OAZ week and a bit ago on the Friday evening. All well that night but woke up saturday felt like i had flu. legs had a dull ache and joints were painful. Just couldnt warm all day. At one point my arms and shoulders felt on fire and i was wondering if it had bought a relapse on. Sunday woke up feeling right as rain. Flu like symptoms had gone.

My mum had both her jabs done, she's 87, first jab fine, second jab flu like symptoms for about 24 hrs, she caught covid last march and was laid low for a week.

What 99% of people are describing is totally normal.

I’m yet to have it but I will as I believe in science. So far 4 people I’ve spoken to have had the vaccine although I can’t say which they had but they all reported that they felt fine, which was a bit of a surprise but either way that’s great news.

Pfizer, tired and fatigued the following day. A bit like when recovering from a heavy cold.

No loss of appetite or other symptoms.

Had the Oaz yesterday early yesterday morning, felt fine yesterday, if anything more energy.

Then crashed about 10pm, joint and muscle pain in arms and legs, dragged myself to bed.

This morning feels like I've been run over by a bus.

Just need to get to my desk and I can hide out there all day today

I’m 64 and had the first OAZ last week. I felt very tired a few hours after the jab and had a bit of a headache and generally not great the next day but that was it. A small price to pay imo.

My Mum had hers done, reported the usual sore arm, headache, feeling sick and chills.

One thing that she said that I haven't seen reported anywhere is that her body temp dropped by about 1C for about 24 hours.

Now four days since my vaccine and the only remaining issues are long sleep times, very nearly 12 hours a night, plus no appetite at all. The vacc site is still a bit sore but it is no big deal, about the same level of pain as a spot on a teenage face.

This sounds brilliant. I could do with sleeping more and eating less. I may ask if I can go on a course of them.

Had mine (Pfizer) on 27th January, I'm 37. Absolutely no side effects to speak of. Not sure if that's down to my blood type (B+) which also makes me basically immune to Norovirus and certain other things too, but judging by the studies so far probably not. Waiting to hear about a date for my 2nd dose, they still had my address as my parents (moved out 13 years ago...)

My partner and a few close friends have all been pretty rough after the Oxford vaccine, my OH has been pretty rough for a week. I will say that all of them are happy that they had it despite the side effects. The oxford vaccine looks to affect you more if you are younger, not sure why, but seems to be a known thing.

Funny how the different vaccines affect different folk.
Wife had the Pfizer one three weeks ago (57 NHS worker) had a sore arm for a day or so.
I had the AZ one yesterday at 13.00hrs (I'm 67) No problems yesterday. Today, achy, sore arm, everything is an effort and about 13.00hrs started with a really bad headache.
All OK apart from a sore arm after a further 24 hours.

Pfizer. Sore arm at injection site for 2 days. Went to bed ridiculously early that and the next. Felt exhausted. Fine after that.
Pretty similar to me after getting the Pfizer jab.

The other side effect was relief.

Had the OAZ a week ago, age 66,no side effects at all, maybe a tad tired the next morning, but I had had a celebratory drink the night before smile.

Mother is 86, no side effects at all for her.

95 year old uncle has now had 2 doses of Pfizer and absolutely nothing to report, when I asked him how he was he just reminded me he was a pathfinder in WW2 working behind the lines !

Just read that if you've had CV19, you're twice as likely to have side effects. Also, having both doses is potentially quite dangerous. I know they don't give it if you tested positive recently.

Got my vaccine letter today, for next week. Apparently I’m on the high risk list for something I didn’t think was relevant. Looks like a relatively late addition to the list. I had absolutely no idea! Good job I didn’t know in a way, otherwise life would have been very different this past year.
