Hi Colin21 and Pixie_Hez

Thank you for the replies

2nd jab done, arm is sore and my appetite is effected slightly, however it so much better than the last time (within 6 hours go the jab I was in my bed, then 5 days in bed with constant nausea).

Spent the afternoon doing little repairs and sorting my camping boxes out for a week in Wales in early August. Making a list of what is needed !

Have a lovely Sunday evening

Sharon

Didn't have any noticeable side effects from either vaccine apart from a faint tenderness in the arm.

Hello. I had my 2nd jab today. No issues so far, nor, very thankfully, did I get any side effects from the first.

Fingers crossed I dont suffer tomorrow.

Just had my second Astra Zeneca injection on Saturday.

With the first one I had a sore arm for a couple of days and felt very tired the next day but no signs of anything at all after this one.

I had my second Jab a week and a half ago. It is all very organised but given it take two seconds to have the jab it provoked me to think why don't they do mass vaccinations where everyone lines up and they speed jab whereby the vaccinators move swiftly from person to person in one continuous line until everyone is done.

That's how they did our cholera jags in Singapore in the mid '60s. Every 6 months (missing by one day meant getting a booster) a long queue of people lined up standing along the medical centre corridor, including me with my mum and dad. And yes, jab jab jab down the line. Clean needles each time, I'm sure, but it sure was done with military efficiency. And us all standing meant the nurse wasn't bending over all the time - I look at some of the photos, and I wonder about the medics' sore backs at the end of the day giving Covid vaccinations to people sitting down.

At the church hall where we had ours done we didn't sit down, there was no seat to sit on, and we were in and done in little more than a minute. They had a real production line running. When we first got there and saw the queue we thought we were going to be there for ages, but the queue went down in no time.

At the mo' of course, they should be having distancing, but I've had my flu jab standing in a no appointment queue.
Some of the folk having Covid jabs when we went were very slow, wheelchairs, carers, infirm.

Due to reports of severe allergic reactions, even at very low rates, some clinics would offer an area for patients to sit down for 15min or so after receiving their vaccinations.

When I had mine, on both occasions, I was sitting down, and was informed to take it easy after receiving my AZ vaccines and not to drive for at least 15min or so.

Nowhere to sit in each cubicle where we had our jabs, although there may have been somewhere at the back if anyone had an adverse reaction. It was all happening so fast there was no time to sit when having the jabs. I think they were assessing people as they came in, and anyone who was frail or in a wheelchair sent to a different cubicle. It was all extremely efficient. My wife and I, both reasonably able, were sent to adjoining cubicles. We were both asked if we were driving and advised not to do so for 15 minutes, and told to come back in immediately if we had a reaction. We just went and sat in the car for 15 minutes. I have nothing but praise for the way it was all handled.

Did you read the statistic from China, at the rate they vaccinate it would take a week to vaccinate the whole of the UK.

But of course they were probably geared up for it

The place where I had my vaccinations consisted of a large hall, half of which had tables set out where the vaccinations took place, and the other half had chairs spaced out at a distance from each other. As far as I know everyone, once inoculated, were asked to sit on one of the chairs for 15 minutes and there was a large clock at the front of the hall where they could easily note the 15 minute period.

An assistant was keeping watch on everyone and as they left she walked over with an anti-bac cloth and cleaned the chair...all very well organised and safe.

Ours was like that bob. Everyone was given a slip of paper with the 'leave time' on it, then led to a secondary waiting area to sit for the 15 mins, with a TV screen clock at the front. You just got up and left when the time came.

Ours was in a church hall too. There was a person on the front door letting people in and directing you to one of two desks just inside, where they took your details and checked you off on the computer. They sent you to one of 4 or 5 cubicles arranged down the centre of the hall. Inside each cubicle there was one person standing up doing the jabs, and another sitting at a small table preparing the syringes. The one standing up told you about the procedure and answered any questions, then the one sitting down handed them the syringe and you got your jab. A few moments later you were directed to the side door to go out and told to hang around for 15 minutes and definitely not to drive during that time. If you felt in any way affected during the 15 minutes you were to come straight back in. All in all, from entering the front door to going about the back took about 2 - 3 minutes unless you asked a lot of questions. If they'd had chairs for patients to sit in when they had their jab, they would probably have been in it for about 5 seconds!

I actually found it quite relaxing to have 15 minutes to myself with nobody pestering me to do this that and the other or nagging me about something I did or didn't do, or should have done, or asking me to set the rotary up because she wants to hang the washing out.

I had my second jab of AZ last Wednesday. The following morning my wife (who had had her second jab the previous Wed) tested positive for covid. By Saturday I was positive too. Our teenage son had been sent home to isolate at the start of that week following a contact in his class form group. He was also positive. Our youngest escaped.

We have both been poorly all week but are now pretty much over it thankfully.

Grateful wed got some jab protection as it was still quite unpleasant and we both had 5 days off work with it. We are in our mid 40s and healthy for context.
