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
Just to update, couldn't work and put up with the muscle/joint pain so took a couple of paracetamol Monday lunchtime, was back to normal within the hour, now just suffering my usual feeling tired out

8/10, would vaccinate again :-)

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.

We had it in October, Mrs has been OK since her vaccination, I had my jab an hour ago, will see how things go...

Well so far my Nan and her partner have had no side effects (Pfizer and AZ)

My father had his last week. Despite being an obese type 2 diabetic who lives his life eating in front of the tv, he seems fine and has suffered no side effects.

My 90yr old mother had hers a few weeks ago, Pfizer.

She said the following day it was the same as her flu jab, her arm was sore when she lifted it. Told her not to lift it.

My missus had the Pfizer one at lunchtime today, felt OK until she got up to leave the waiting room after, then threw up in the entrance to the hall. Not sure what the 30 or so waiting to come in must have thought. hehe

I`ve had Sinopharm vaccine here in Dubai.

After 1st dose I had terrible brain fog and dizziness for 3 days. Second dose maybe a slight headache so took Ibuprofen and loads of water. Was right as rain so did a 50km bike ride the next day.

You should have encouraged her to walk in circles on the floor for added effect hehe

Astra Zeneca Vaccine on Tuesday afternoon.

14 hrs later woke up in bed shivering and couldn't go back to sleep.

20hrs after had splitting headache and achy but not bed bound - just didn't feel like doing much at all and generally tired.

30hrs after - fit as a fiddle again!

Pfizer one for me about 90 mins ago. Despite not having a needle or blood phobia, I'll often have a strange reaction after a jab or having blood taken; cold sweats, tingling sensations on my skin, a need to focus on breathing, light-headedness followed by raging thirst. I'm pretty sure it's called vagovasal syncope - either way, I'm not in charge of it and it's a bit irritating.

I made the nurse aware of it and said that I'd probably need a few minutes longer to sit quietly. Didn't even feel the jab at all, went and sat down and was fine for ten mins. Then had the wave of light-headedness etc. Ended up sitting for about 30 mins in the end, just to be sure I was OK. Very grateful to have been given the vaccine.

I haven't helped out where Pfizer was being given but I understood a 15 minute observation period was normal for all. Oxford AZ doesn't need that but we had a few, no more than 20 out of 800, who we kept an eye on for a while afterwards. All felt fine and left after 15 minutes or so.

Yeah, they said a 15 min observation. My reaction to it wasn't anything to do with the vaccine, it's an autonomous response I'm not in control of and would happen regardless. Basically my body decides it didn't like whatever the fk that was and throws a minor wobbly.

I had no issue having the jab at all so it's not a phobia or anything. Very strange and a little irritating if I'm honest!

Edit: interestingly my Fitbit shows a sudden drop in HR (by over 40bpm) minutes after the jab which would correlate with a drop in BP and the light-headedness. It was back to normal range 15 mins later.

Interesting to read all the updates from those that have had the jab, good to hear in most are having very minor AE's

Anyone who does suffer an AE should be reporting them using the governments Yellow Card system: https://yellowcard.mhra.gov.uk/

Summary page of reported AE's here:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronav...

Pfizer AE breakdown:
https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/governmen...

AZ AE breakdown:
https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/governmen...

I haven't seen those pages mentioned or posted elsewhere...

Just to follow up - other than a mildly sore arm (and very mild at that) I only had one side effect last night. About an hour or two after I went to bed, I woke up in a pool of sweat, enough that I needed to change the bedding before going back to sleep.

However I didn't feel ill at all at any point and have had no other side effects today whatsoever.

My 72 year old mum had the AstraZeneca vaccine about 10 days ago, had mild symptons the following day, however does have reddening of the skin around the jab point about the size of an iphone, is that normal? I just read through the posted symptons list and it's called erythema.

I had the OAZ vaccine yesterday lunchtime and I can't say I've had any side effects at all. I'm 60. I've had a normal day today doing normal things including walking the dogs twice. Only thing I can say is that I'm a little tired this evening, but I put that down to the fact that I've had no alcohol since the start of the year and yesterday evening had a G&T and half a bottle of champagne (not covid or vaccine related!) so it's possible I've had a mild hangover today, just due to lower alcohol tolerance following the abstinence. Second jab booked for May.
