Covid immunisation

Who's had their Covid injection? (I hate the word "jab"!)

As I come into the over-70 category (just) I had my first vaccination on Friday -- the AstraZeneca vaccine -- and I've suffered a couple of days of flu-like symptoms. Paracetamol helps, but I haven't felt much like doing anything for the past couple of days. I think I'll be okay by tomorrow (fingers crossed)!

    I hear that the vaccine can cause mild symptoms so you are not alone, Dave.

    I haven't had mine yet but when my time comes I will.

    I had the Pfizer vaccine last Monday and also experienced mild flue type symptoms for a couple of days which Paracetamol sorted out. My wife who also had hers at the same time hasn't had any problems. She put my symptoms down to the fact that I was a man and that I hadn't given birth to children.

    Tel, I once heard it said that when a man gets engaged he should have his ear pierced so that he can appreciate two experiences to prepare him for married life - buying jewellery and having pain. Your wife probably doesn't need any further anecdotes as she seems quite capable by herself.
