I am having my second later my son who is 23 is having his first next week.
I had my second AZ jab yesterday and unlike the first where i had no side effects at all this time i have a very sore arm it doesn't hurt when i am sat still but when i move it it feels like someone has punched me in the top of my arm, i am glad i decided to have it at the weekend as i doubt i could have gone to work today ad it been a work day.

For those who've had their first jab with second booked, it's now possible to rearrange your second much sooner. I managed to change mine from 25th Aug to 28th July. My friends who did this also managed to change theirs by about a month.


Great stuff I had mine in july but moved it later on as it was the day before a SPartan and didnt wanna risk it lol

I will see if I can bring it fwd now

This is the OP to save members going back to look -

And told theres not a chance in hell they will take the vaccination
Just wondering is there many more like this
I have it and I'm happy I got it
As i said in my post earlier i know people at work who said they are not ever going to get it, i hope they read this tonight it may save their lives, this is from BBC News today.


Covid: Vaccine refuser regrets turning down jab after catching virus
A Covid-19 vaccine refuser "stared death in the eyes" as he lay gasping for breath in hospital after catching the virus.
Abderrahmane Fadil, 60, was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary earlier this month struggling to breathe.
The father of two said declining his vaccination invite in February was "the biggest mistake" of his life.
He has thanked NHS staff for saving his life and urged others to get vaccinated.
"I will never forget when the paramedics were taking me down the stairs and my kids were crying and looking at me," Mr Fadil said.
Recalling the moment he last saw sons Rayan, nine, and Aryan, seven, before going into hospital, he said: "One of the saddest scenes ever I've witnessed. I said: 'I'm all right, daddy will be all right'.

"I rang 999 because I couldn't catch my breath. I was contemplating death. That's the nearest I came to death. I was staring at it in the eyes," he said.
Mr Fadil spent nine days in hospital he became ill two weeks ago, and expects to be recovering for many weeks to come.
He turned down a coronavirus vaccine when it was first offered to the over-60s back in February.
"I was a bit reluctant and just thought I'll hold my horses and maybe get it later. I never really believed I would get Covid or it would make me so ill. I know differently now," he said.
Respiratory consultant Tanveer Khalid, part of the team responsible for Mr Fadil's care, said he had been "very lucky" to survive.
"The majority of very sick Covid patients we have on our wards are here because they have refused the vaccine," he said.
Mr Fadil said he owed his life to the staff who looked after him and allowed him to see his children again, adding: "You feel very privileged that you're still here."
Across Bradford, about 70% of adults have had at least one jab, which is about 312,000 people. In England, more than 84% of adults have been vaccinated.
There is currently a push to encourage more people, especially those from ethnic minority backgrounds, to come forward and get their jabs.

Seems you can't bring it forward any earlier than 8 weeks, which is the official guideline at the moment; some of the walkin places are doing 2nd jabs at less than 8 weeks but they're being discouraged from doing so, so it's a bit of a lottery. Still worth trying late in the day I would have thought.

The messaging has been a bit confusing, as some centres seem to have been taking a view on what uptake was locally vs how much vaccine they had and publicising a period that was <8 weeks - I heard of some walkin centres doing anybody after 5 weeks for instance. But there now seems to have been an order from PHE that 8 weeks is the minimum, and that certainly seems to have been the rule used by the website for a while now, so your only hope is to get lucky at a walkin centre if they have vials to spare.

As an aside - you no longer have to cancel your appointment on the website before you can try for another one, you can now scan for earlier apointments without cancelling so there's now no risk of leaving yourself worse off if someone nabs your old spot whilst you're looking for a new one.

With regards to the argument that you might catch or pass covid after a vaccine.
However remember you might still get hit by the proverbial bus even if you look both ways before crossing the road - but that is no reason to stop looking.

Also re the above post - has anyone got the recipe for the HomeBrew that took Neil Armstrong to the moon ?
Here is it well... all those who've tried it said they ended up off the planet :laugh8:

Tell me about it - nothing for the first one.
When the nurse asked me if I would like a sticker when I had my second, I said "Yes please, I wasn't offered one at the first jab".
"Oh, you can have two, then." was the response.
RESULT!!!

What a waste :laugh8:
only if you were going to tip a brew but instead donate it to elon musk or Geoff bezios. I'm sure Geoff only wants to go into space so Elon's mars colony can have an amazon delivery wink.... Only unless he can break the laws of physics as we know them next day delivery is out.

In Scotland I got a sit down for 15 minutes for my first jab, and a sit down for 15 minutes for my second jab. No lollipop or sticker, but I was told on your letter is a unique reference number, stick that in the NHS Scotland web page and it will show your current vaccination status, if you need to prove it.

No sticker for me, and I had to go and sit in my car outside the pharmacy in a very dodgy area of town and watch the drug dealers on bikes and various shady characters go about their daily routine.

Was quite interesting! I was explaining this to one of my friends, and she said that she was initially booked in to the same place, the the lady doing the booking (she got it though work as a carer, rather than through the website) asked if she would have her kids with her. When she siad yes, the booking lady said 'I'd better book you into somewhere else then, as its not safe for kids round there'!! :laugh8:

I think it might be vary depending on the vaccine (and possibly where you have it), I got the Pfizer one at one of the big centres and it was no exception you sat down in a chair and waited fifteen minutes. My parents got their jab at the local GP’s and where asked {are you driving‘ with drivers being asked to wait fifteen minutes while those arriving on foot could be on their way (And was the Astra Zeneca jab).
