A lot of us are "knocking on" a bit so questions might justifiably be raised over our judgement on some things, but "mad"? - probably not.

As far as i could follow the experiences, my own included, the reactions obviously depend widely on personal dispositions.
Example (all AZ): A friend without any disposition to headache felt almost nothing. Myself with a disposition to short migraine attacks (usually 10 minutes) had a 20 minutes attack, both male, the first early, the latter mid 60s. Another friend (female, late 50s) with a disposition to longer lasting headache attacks suffered for two days.

Yep, that happened to me, too. Take some paracetamol, and rest.

If it ain't hurting, it ain't working.*

(*For some folks, it works without hurting. Sh*t happens)

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Had the 1st jab in March next day felt lousy, my wife felt fine, she had no reaction. On the second jabs I was o.k but it knocked my wife out for 2 days! I wonder if the vaccine is exactly the same for 1st & 2nd jab & how the forthcoming injections will affect us. Donít mind as long as they work, it looks as if they do!

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

It seems to me that the response to the vaccines is as variable as the disease. Had second pfizer last week, was absolutely fine all of the first day, woke with a headache on days two & three, which quickly resolved with paracetamol, so only a mild reaction for me.

I think some of the sore arm side effects may be down to the skill of the vaccinator; my second was done by a retired doctor, and I didn't feel a thing, either during or afterwards.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Yesterday Mrs Jeroen and I got our first Pfizer BioNtech shot. No serious side-effects (yet). However, I can confirm that there's no complimentary jam in Holland I also asked for a special "Jip & Janneke" bandaid, but they didn't have that either. The nurse suggested bringing my own for the second shot
For the first available opportunity, we had to drive a bit through the county (from Alkmaar to Uitgeest for me and from there to Hoorn for the mrs) but that was by our own choice. June 13th our second shots and full protection just before midsommer

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Sadly it looks like Taiwan's defenses have finally been breached. Not a massive amount of infections yet, but it's going up each day (330 now).

Taipei is in semi lockdown.

Here down South we seem to be ok (it hasn't made it past the center of Taiwan yet) - but of course as soon as the news hit, all the university students in Taipei started running back home to the South.... sigh.

As a consequence of this also, now all the available vaccine has run out - so I might not be able to get my second shot.

If things get much worse over the next few weeks, I might as well return to the UK (especially now Nando's is open!)

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

In Fraserburgh of all places, an eighteen month baby boy has been diagnosed with COVID. It was initially thought it was a bacterial infection, but after a COVID 19 test it was indeed the virus. A bit frightening to say the least, especially for the parents.
