Re: Covid-19 Vaccinations

My husband had his jab on December 30th and has not had any side-effects at all, thank goodness! Not even a sore arm. We are waiting to see whether he gets his second jab on January 20th as per his appointment ... we haven't heard anything to the contrary from the surgery so I'm hoping he will still get it. We shall see.

Good to hear that yours went well Mags.

Thank you Rhian.

I agree, the more who have it, the better chance we have of defeating this virus.

Itís good to hear your husband suffered no side effects.

I hope they can squeeze him in for his second jab on the 20th, fingers crossed for you both.

Re: Covid-19 Vaccinations

Pleased for you both Mags.

We took my Mum a couple of weeks ago and it was a shambles, waiting outside for half an hour in the cold with no shelter, then reams of paperwork to fill in before even getting the jab. We were there almost two hours, so I hope that they can pick up a few pointers from down your way to improve their service or it will be impossible to vaccinate enough people quickly enough to make a difference.

Iím so sorry to hear your Mum had to wait outside in the cold for all that time. Thatís what I was dreading as I canít stand for long without getting a backache. We didnít have to fill in any paperwork, just answer about 6 questions we had already answered on the phone when they were making the appointment. There was someone on the computer in the room so maybe they had all our information to hand. We were literally only in the room for 5 minutes.

It's a similar scenario here .... I walked past the vaccination site yesterday and there was about a dozen over-80's standing queuing in the car park in the cold. I felt for them, I really did. They looked frozen.
Cars were queuing to get on the car park , with volunteer marshals directing them where to park and warning them of the wait.
Doubtless practise will make perfect. It's an ambitious project and the logistics must be awful.

Re: Covid-19 Vaccinations

Glad that's the first bit done for you both, Mags.
It must help things along when they are well organised too.

There was a Doctor on telly yesterday who had just had his, and he said the next day he felt ' Not quite right, but certainly not ill.'

I suppose the Flu jab affects us all differently too, but interesting to hear how you get on.

Re: Covid-19 Vaccinations

Good news Mags you are in good company with the Queen who had hers today.

Lots of members of my health support group have had their vaccination and no one seems to have had as much as a sore arm .
I won't mind if I do get a sore arm, is shows my antibodies are reacting and I will do what I do every year with the Flu vaccination, massage the site gently and if it hurts the next day apply an ice pack
