Had my Astra about a week ago. No side effects except for a vaguely achey arm.
Didn't really feel the need for it except it might protect others, potentially, although no one's really sure about that. I'm pretty sure I got it before it became such a thing and had very minor symptoms. Cough, shortness of breath over the course of months. Wondered what the heck was up with me. Literally around the time Boris was saying it wasn't an issue even though the rest of the world was taking notice.
Point is I think my body probably had defence against it before I got my jab but might as well be safe and maybe protect the rest of ya 😉

Not Plan B again!! Why don't we just go with plan B in the first place?

Had my Morris Oxford/Vauxhall Astra Zafira injection last Sat 13th.
Following day I just felt very tired and lethargic. No headaches or aching limbs or fever. Just a bit naff which had passed by the evening just in time for County File on BBC1 that I didn’t watch because I’m not really a fan of it to be honest.

Or the Hairy Bikers, I don’t much care for that show either.
Rick Stein is ok, he was in the South of France the other day and that was ok.
Homes under the hammer. That’s another one I don’t like much. Estate agents keep going to houses that have been ‘done up’ and the first thing they do is look up at the ceilings.

So now it’s a week later and my blood hasn’t clotted creamed or anything.

Thomas Dolby was interviewed by Martyn Ware in his Electronically yours podcast and I enjoyed that.
He’s interviewed Glenn Matlock as well and I think he was the only one in the Sex Pistols with any real talent and he left so they got Sid Vicious in to play bass and he couldn’t play bass. Not really. Then he met Nancy and it all went pear shaped after that.
They'll take the internet off us if people keep doing this.

Because of my extreme age and being "extremely vulnerable" and hence earning double points ;) , I've now got Pfizer 2 booked for 9 April. Will let you know after about any side effects, but, as I am immunocompromised, it could be I'm not getting any as the damn thing doesn't work (ref recent small study by KCL and Francis Crick that projected about 10% efficacy, but I'm not taking much notice of that)!

Pfizer Jab 2 now on board. Arm ache again, maybe a bit more pronounced than with Jab 1, but nothing else.

exactly one week later i had uncontrolled shivering and spent 36 hours in bed

had to visit doctors on an unrelated issue and mentioned it to him and he said it was probably a bug i had picked up, which considering i rarely leave home i found to be unlikely

A bit more pronounced!
Definitely; lasted for four days, just dying off now. More achy and also an inflamed area around the injection, roughly 100mm x 50mm which was quite red.
Anybody else had that - more pronounced side effects with Jab 2?
