Wife got her first AstraZeneca jab yesterday and complained of a slight headache this morning, but reading the literature suppled and talking to her pals put her at ease. I can't get my first dose till later as I've just had my flu jag the other day - when did we change that to jab?

I got my first jab on Thursday. Moderna (American). Apart from some pain in the arm the next day I've had no symptoms. Next jab end of May. Then I get a green passport so hopefully can start to travel again.

Hi Hughie,

You can tell the boss that headaches are common with the Astra vaccine, I had my first on the 7th April and had a headache in the afternoon. I was bad the following morning so I went back to the doctor about it and told her I have never had a headache in my life and now I'm in quite a bot of pain, She told it is quite common common with the vaccine and there are around 40% of people have the headache. If it was still there in the morning to come back. It was gone in the morning, I have my next one on Wednesday morning, hope I don't get another headache.

Don’t you have to wait 12 weeks between first and second jab.
I had my first on 10th April and have to wait till end of June for 2nd

Netta 12 weeks seems an awful long time. In Europe it's just a four week wait. Wee Boney, the doctor told me if I had any symptoms after the jab to take Paracetamol. Thankfully not been necessary. Hughie, Jab or Jag, not much difference. Not like the USA where they say 'Have you had your 'shot' yet'.

Perhaps different states in Australia have different rules about how soon you can get your 2nd vaccination as I see Wee Boney is getting his sooner in Queensland.

Thats, correct Netta

Boney, Actually surprised the doctor seen you... its almost impossible to get an appointment with a doctor in England. For example i phoned the surgery as i expected i had Arthur- Itus last month. Doctor phoned me back and said what do you want physio or pain relief (ie ) ibuprofen. It would be easier to break into a bank than to gain access to a surgery.

Brian, we find it quite easy to see our GPs here. We can book an appointment online or by telephone.
I usually do an online booking then phone when they open to see if I can get an earlier app.
Because Bob has a autoimmune condition his GP will usually fit him in if I ask.
