I read you came out relatively well bonzo :)
I had the AstraZeneca last week and had severe chills for 2 nights- The central heating was on but still had to go to bed with pyjamas and a dressing gown on :roll: also had bit of pain at the back of my head and feeling a bit sick. But that's the first one over and done, second jab in May.
These short term side effects are more than worth it, for the vaccine could potentially save your life. :D

Sorry to hear that Brian, hope you're ok now? A mate of mine also had a bit of a fever for a couple of days. I've had a very slight sore head since last night but it's hee haw.

Both my wife and I had the AstraZeneca jab and we are pleased to say we had no side effects. I hope the second one goes as well. Sorry to hear about your side effects Brian but worth it if it gives protection against the invisible, silent enemy.

bonzo, meekan- Thanks, A few Ibuprofen sorted it out.
I should have had the flu jab this year but I declined. Maybe that has side effects? Thanks to Covid, Flu disappeared this year.

Booked in for my flu jab next week as winter approaches. Then have to wait for a fortnight before they'd give me the covid jab. No recent local covid cases here in Oz. Overseas arrivals go straight into quarantine and some have turned out positive - so that seems to be working, fingers crossed.

Bob and I got our first Covid jag on Sat. So far so good. I was feeling cold on Sat night but that may have been because of a drop in temp in Victoria. 30 degrees on Thursday and snow in the Alps on Sunday.
Second jag end of June . Will get flu vaccine in Two weeks.
