My husband (who is a bit older than me) had his just over a week ago, earlier than expected but I think that's probably down to there being a slower uptake in our part of London. No worries at all about how it was organised. He did have some of the listed side effects for a day or two, nausea, aching, slight headache, but other than that all fine. I'm looking forward to getting mine and if I have any similar side effects I think it'll be well worth it.
Had my Oxford vaccine today in Scotland. Very impressed with my GP Surgery and I am delighted to receive it. I had Covid last April and ended up with Long Covid so was a little bit apprehensive, but if I get some side effects I don’t mind as it’s worth it in the long run
Straight in, straight out, no messing ..headachey the morning after yesterday's tea time Oxford/AstraZeneca jab ..but this cleared after a few hours ..a fabulously well organised NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Centre, is Sheffield Arena.
Whilst I'm at it ..for future reference, I've filed ..the booking invitation letter ..a hard copy of the email confirming the appointments ..the ✻Patient Information Leaflet✻ ..the vaccine record card ..and the COVID-19 sticker ..in a pocket display book.
Heard nothing yet for Alice, 17, or me, 50. Not so bothered about me as I am furloughed, but Alice is anxious about going back to college. Gave in and rang the surgery today who have no vaccine. All the other local surgeries are better supplied and are moving on to lower groups. Hope to hear soon.
