I have had first jab and second one booked for middle of May. No hesitation. Astra Zenika, got what I was given. No problems or side affects apart from a slightly sore arm and a couple of days later after my usual exercising and also a long brisk walk, sat down at home and felt the need to sleep so went to bed for 40 mins. Could probably have slept the rest of the day but had set alarm and got up cos I didn’t want to waste my day.
I felt very grateful to get this vaccine as I have been a keyworker throughout the pandemic and in the firing line.
My friend had the pfizer jab and had his second one on Monday and he has been fine, again only a sore arm.
Some of my work colleagues have had some more adverse side affects but all happy to get the vaccine.
One of my work colleague got covid last march and she has only recently returned to work as she was so ill. Her doctor has told her to expect to remain poorly for another 2 years! She was not overweight but a pretty fit and healthy woman who always looked after herself.
An ex colleague of ours died with covid, just turning 40yrs old, such a nice fella. 2 of my dance friends have died of covid and my daughters friend in Russia died of it aged 40yrs. An ex Army colleague was in ICU and was about yo be put into an induced coma when he suddenly pulled through. He said he thought he was on deaths door.
All I can say is that the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh any side affects.
I guess those that protest against it will be rushing to get vaccinated when they can’t go on holiday abroad without it!
