Some of us are in the 1a and 1b rollouts already have had the jab and considering this is to do with health and wellbeing I thought it would be really interesting to hear how those are going along and what jab you had.
I have not had the jab yet but my sister had the Pfizer one and was sick day after but otherwise she was fine.
I am due to get vaccine but pfizer is not available at the moment in my state and that is the recommended one for under 30s.
That's good to hear your sister managed to get the Pfizer and has come good after a day Beautybabe.
My daughter is 23 and can get severe asthma (when exposed to a virus) so she was due to have her jab tomorrow but I will have to ask her if she is still going to get it after hearing the changes in recommendation as to who should have it.
Her boyfriend is 41 has has some serious heart issues and even takes aspirin for it so it seems like he will wait until the Pfizer one is available.
My mum, mum's hubby and my MIL have all had their first Astra jab and are doing well now though they were tired for a couple of days after it. I think my mums hubby felt worse (the 'man' jab?!) than my mum who got some headaches for a day afterward. Mum is 78 and her hubby is 71. My MIL is 89 and is doing fine and they even gave it to her while she was antibiotics for something else.
My mum is in aged care and had the Pfizer 2 weeks ago and no side effects, Some residents complained of arm pain but otherwise nothing major. I'm in no hurry .
I've been keen to get the vax ASAP because I've almost died from the flu twice! The thing is, my asthma is very well under control - until I get the flu, so I don't qualify in the high-risk criteria. I'm in the 2a category. I didn't care which jab I got until I heard about the stroke risk with the AZ jab: I'm a little hesitant about getting that one, now. I'm 54, but as a migraine sufferer, I have a slightly higher risk of stroke.
Still, they say the risk is so minimal that it's equivalent to your chance at winning Lotto. Hmm, someone wins Lotto just about every week!
Nevertheless, I've decided to get whichever jab I can get as soon as I can. Fingers crossed it's the Pfizer one.
I haven't & will be waiting forever & a day due to my age (under 50, recommended I don't get the AstraZeneca & instead have the Pfizer). Both my parents haven't had their jabs, but they would've been next or almost next cabs off the rank had the rollout gone a lot smoother than it has. As frustrated & peed off as I am about how this whole vaccine rollout is going here (am very mad at Scott Morrison & his cronies here), I am glad that they've detected the issue with AstraZeneca as my mum can get blood clots from time to time & might've been at greater risk had she had the AZ vaccine.
I know in the US my brother's getting Pfizer, his fiancée the Moderna vaccine. Both of them have had their first jabs now I think. It completely sucks that we have no timetable for a rollout as I'd (rather naïvely) hoped I'd be able to watch them get married in person this year. Alas, sadly, that won't be the case now. :o(
Forgot to add that I'm also envious of some of my overseas friends (1 in the UK, the other in the US) who have had their jabs or are in the process of getting them....kinda hard not to feel a bit bitter watching them post their jab selfies!
Yes, I'll be happy once I've got mine. The wait is frustrating!
I got the Pfizer vaccine, both doses already administered as I work in a outpatient clinic. The first one was okay my arm was tender but no fatigue the second one I had fatigue.
I have a friend in the states who has had both of her Moderna vaccines a friend who is a nurse in London was due to have hers, not sure which one she was getting.
I was eligible to get the vaccine in this current roll with the oldies as I have a chronic disease but with all the publicitiy I don't think I want the Astra Zeneca vaccine. Might wait for the Pfizer one. Who knows how long that will be though..
Will probably get a flu shot soon I had a really sore arm for a few days last time I had it.
Just a note: my doctor said you have to wait 2 weeks in between getting the flu vax & the COVID jab.
Thanks, yes I had heard that.
I have had my first one. So lucky to have got in quickly and the booster is booked for early June.
A friend at work is having one next week as her partner is vulnerable, she's been told to take aspirin a few days before and after receiving the vacinne.
Had the Astrazenica in early April - i was booked in for the day after the s**t hit the fan about it causing blood clots. Hubby thought I should put it on-hold, but I went ahead - would have made no difference cause I'm over 50 anyway!
Daughter can also have it (has a variation on my immuno reason) but now I'm so glad she held off - she's 28. But I do have a friend whose daughter is the same age and had already had it a few weeks before they recommended not giving it to under 50's.
Had it at 10am and chose to work from home that day and was all good - couldn't even feel where i'd had the jab - and i watched her do it!
Until about 5pm then that arm started to feel heavy down near the wrist. I'd had a fracture on that wrist last June - so not sure if that's why it was targeted - found a weakness?
Went to bed OK but when I got up through the night at 3am, felt very fatigued and decided NOT to go into work (it was Friday) but work from home again.
By 8am I had to push myself to get on the computer - it had hit me - fatigue/lethargy/no energy - like the flu.
Took panadol at 2pm as a bit of a headache (i never get headaches due to anti inflammatory meds I take) and felt like crawling back to bed - but soldiered on.
Woke up Saturday morning - feeling great!
The site did feel a bit tender for a week after - but only when I touched it!
Had the flu shot 2 weeks later and all good - never causes a problem
2nd jab is booked in for 12 weeks after the 1st - but changed it to a Friday (it was a Thursday) as they say symptoms are worse.
So at least I'll have the weekend to recover and wont make any plans.
Yeah, they say some people get flu-like symptoms. Bad luck that you were one of them. Still, it's better than dying of COVID. I'll be relieved when I've had mine, too. Probably AZ because I'm 54.
Exactly my thinking m8. Regardless of how sick I might get if I contract it, I’d have to go off my meds (that lower my immune system) to give my natural immune system a fighting chance - but that would cause other ihealth issues with a flare up!
Vaccine is a no-brainer for me.
With a disease that has killed healthy young people, yeah, I'm rushing out to get vaccinated as soon as I can!
Yes I totally recommend doing the vaccine on a day off or having days off after, I was wiped out sleepy post mine
Sorry to hear that Miramarmari - wouldn’t mind being sleepy next time!
Dr thinks the younger you are, more likely you are to suffer - not sure that’s suppose to make me feel better.
My in- laws had no after effects (late70s/early 80d) with my mum in law saying her arm was sore - except she had it in the other arm!
yes my arm was quite tender, lucky decided to use the arm I don't write with
A few of my friends have gotten the Pfizer vaccine and have felt flu-like symptoms (lethargy, sore arm from where the jab was) but nothing terrible.
My dad has had his first dose of AZ and seems perfectly fine.
Even though I'm in the age bracket that gets the Pfizer (under 50) I'm still going to put off getting the vaccine for as long as possible.
Maybe I'll wait until Cuba releases their vaccine LOL
Not keen on getting the jab, Lawliet?
Someone I work with had her first AZ vaccine yesterday, she went home from work this afternoon feeling tired with flu like symptoms. Would still personally prefer some side affects from a vaccine than getting covid.
I am not eligible yet (who knows when) but I booked my mum in (one month wait) and she got hers done on Monday at 9am. It was a AZ one. By 3pm she had a fever and her temperate was hovering at about 39.5C she was shaking as she felt so cold so we sent her to bed with a hot water bottle, the shaking stopped but she had no appetite. The next day her temperature hovered about 38.5C but she started eating and she was fine by Wednesday but felt a bit weak.
Dad got his done on Thursday night (also AZ) and he had no side effects so far.
I love oils- I am so happy to slather and swish any good oil all over my face for a night time treat.
Lancome Juicy Shaker lip gloss was gifted to me. This is a fun and lovely lip gloss in shade Cloudy Pink, which is a very soft pink with a hint of iridescence.
I've been doing a lot of swimming lately so my hair is noticeably dry. I bought this quite frankly as the price was appealing. I love the scent, super scrumptious!
