Are health workers getting tested regularly after they have the vaccine to see if they have it?
And is it safe to visit people after you have had the vaccine? Asking for a friend.

Has any one here had a Covid 19 vaccine yet?
In the spirit of threads such as .... have you had Covid.... and.... have you been tested for Covid....
I had the moderna vaccine today and I feel 100 % well.

1. Yes, on a weekly basis now, I got tested a week after got the dose
2. I know few people got positive even after having first dose of vaccine. I would wait till second dose and still adhere to the guidelines, mask, social distancing, coughing etiquette and hand washing.

I got the Pfizer vaccine and just had a sore arm after the first jab.
After the second one I had muscles aches, stiffness, headache and that general feeling like you're coming down with something. Paracetamol certainly helped a lot. I was fine about 36 hours later.
A number of my colleagues had familiar symptoms, some also had fever and chills.
I hope no one is put off by hearing about some of the side effects. They are completely normal.
I would much rather feel like crap for 36-48 hours than take the risk of contracting Covid.
The advice I would give people getting the second dose would be to take it easy for the day, book it off work if you can and have paracetamol handy.

Anyone get the AstraZeneca vaccine yet?
I received notification of my appointment today....just wondering as to what to expect... although I imagine the side-effects are similar across the board

I had a blood test before the first jab, That tests for antibodies. Then again 57 days later when I have the second jab. Of the 60k people taking part in the trial about 6k have blood taken every month for the 2 years of the trial but I am not part of that trial.
Got the 2nd Pfizer jab this morning. Arm fairly sore but no other side effects so far.

Hey just wondering or if anyone else knows.
I got notification today of my appointment but it doesn’t say for which vaccine?
For those who got notifications was it specified which vaccine you would be getting?

If you are a healthcare worker then its likely to be AstraZeneca. The HSE site only lists that one when signing up through their online portal.

A long shot but is there anyway people can choose which jab they get?

No, not at this point in time.

Very unlikely to be the case either. The HSE will control the distribution of vaccines to MVCs and other locations. As always it'll be down to the current supply available.

I'd say in time as there are surplus vaccines you will be able to pay to choose the one you would prefer (not with HSE but privately). As for me, I'll take any one of them, really can't wait.

I'm in #14. I wouldn't care about the placement if they had a time frame to determine when I can expect to get it. The fact that they won't give a timeframe is troubling.
