I had my jab at about 4pm and felt absolutely fine until I woke up in the night and couldn’t stop shivering. Felt rough until around lunchtime the next day.

Had my first dose on Saturday morning. Felt fine after it and you can't even feel the jab itself. Went on a big walk in the afternoon (was probably stupid but hey ho) and noticed I was getting knackered very easily. Saturday evening started feeling really tired and freezing, like the flu shivers a bit but weirdly without the temperature.

Woke up Sunday morning at 5 and was freezing cold and felt a bit like that and shitty all day (sods law had booked the barbers weeks before the vaccine so had to go). Eased off a bit later in the day and feel much better today if a bit knackered.

Anecdotally it seems to affect younger (relatively ;) ) people more often like this. Just neck paracetamol and ibuprofen and it takes the edge off and only seems to last 24 hrs or so after it kicks in.
That sounds almost exactly how I was affected. Got some aches and pains around my shoulders/neck too, but all fine about 24 hours later.

Ach, she's older than me, not that I ever mention it :) So she'll be fine.

Had my 2nd (Moderna) on Thursday. Definite slight chill all day Friday but nothing serious.

One thing I noticed was that they asked whether we wanted the 2nd jab in the same arm as the 1st. Apparently it is around 50-50 those who don't care or mind and those who prefer the other arm.

The Janssen shot messed me up for about 72 hours. Didn't help that the needle was the largest I've ever had stuck in me, by a huge margin. Felt like my left arm was going to fall off for the rest of injection day.

My M-i-L, in Zambia, got her first jab today - some happy unintended consequences of lack of demand for AZ in other countries.
Feels gross that we (the west) are giving out our supplies of "not quite good enough" vaccines to other countries, but I suppose in this case I'll look at it more positively.

At least the clotting issue is easily remedied once it's properly identified.

That we, for once, does not include the U.K.

edit - there’s more to it that that too - the US big pharma companies are making huge profits off this. Developing counties will have to stick to sinovac and AZ as they are both not for profit. It’s not about ‘not good enough’ it’s about ‘not profiting off people dying’. Something which US pharma are incapable of.

Describing the AZ vaccine as "not quite good enough" is not remotely accurate.

It is not inaccurate, however, to say that it so far has shown to be both the least effective and most dangerous, such as it is.

That the AZ wears both of those crowns and is still a decent medicine is a credit to the work done on these drugs over the past year.

Least effective - no, last I saw sinovac has that by some way. Most dangerous is a ridiculous term to use, and by doses administered also not true I think - that honour goes to the J&J one.
