Text - Vaccine

I am a 37 year old healthy guy, don't smoke and I'm in fairly good condition, to my surprise and excitement I've just had a text from my GP offering me an appointment for the vaccine, Thankyou very much I am all over that can't wait.

Well done that man. They seem to be getting through the nation pretty quickly now. I had mine 2 weeks ago. Makes you feel like dancing around the room with joy. I had a few glasses of Harvey's Bristol Cream to celebrate -Big grin.png-

Re: Text - Vaccine

Had mine on Saturday before lunch and by 4pm I was rough as a badger! Skin was extremely sore to the touch, joints aching and generally spaced out (very flu-like but no congestion). Paracetamol and ibuprofen improved matters massively, went to bed last night expecting more of the same but woke up this morning feeling 100% with no more ill effects at all. Happy bunny now though with some protection on board so worth the day feeling grotty I’d say -Thumb_up- Astra Zeneca btw!

Most people I have spoken to have some ill effects, Mother said she felt tired the next day, friend said she ached all over, if it lasts a day and protects me I can cope with that -Big grin.png-

I had no effects at all, even the sore arm was far less than the flue jab I get every year, Oxford Zenica.

Re: Text - Vaccine

my boss and his wife - both early 40's - have had their jabs, but neither of us - both mid 50's (& my wife works in a school) - have been offered it yet.

we can't wait to get the jab!

Re: Text - Vaccine

Received my text yesterday and all booked in for next week. I was surprised to receive the text so soon. I am in my 50's. I am guessing the vaccination roll out is going better than hoped.
