DH was asked B4 the needle was prepared whether he is allergic to eggs.  I think that question should have been asked when he made the appt.!  He came out with a useless leaflet ...........

The 1st vaccine has been approved  :o but has to be kept cold for transportation.  Then thawed ...........

Just had my flu vac this morning. 

Was warned to expect to queue in the surgery car park but went straight in.  Whole thing was less than 2 minutes.

I wonder if the take up in the 50-64 age group is as high as expected.??

Hello ladies.

My husband is 64 and had his jab a few weeks ago.  He was given an appointment time but when he arrived at the surgery it was first come, first served and patients were queueing round the block.

Take care ladies.

Had mine this morning, 2 hour time slot but went straight in. Feels like a bruise on my arm but no other symptoms.

Ours was done in the normal consulting rooms with a chair so you could choose to sit or stand. Yes, it was very efficient. One way system, in and out in a couple of minutes.
Thought I'd escaped anything worse than a sore arm?? How long before you feel rough if you're going to?

Probably by now  ;). It may feel heavy in the morning as well as being aware of the muscle.  Let me know so that I can change my mind B4 Monday  :-\

Thanks Teresa, I'll keep my fingers crossed for another 2 days. They're keen to point out it isn't a live vaccine so hopefully it will be OK.

Hmmm... two days later I felt a bit off too. I don't know if I can put it down to the jab though, I have a cold (despite social distancing!) and am on the last days of utro which wipes me out too. Waiting for the covid jab now. Anyone know someone who's been called for it?

I was told B4 the jab last night that I may feel flushed in a couple of days  :-\.  ? why ?  I would put that down to scurrying around doing chores  :D

Most people are getting C-19 vaccine in hospitals due to this batch needing to be kept frozen.  It can be moved 4 times ..... so Hospitals with freezer space have been given priority.  Hopefully more vaccines will be approved sooner rather than later as it will take months B4 those treated today will know of any ill effects: ?? there's a gap with this 1 between today and the booster ??

The arm that wasn't jabbed as ached ever since  ;D
