    Had my second J&J jab on Wednesday, No pain in the arm this time but felt crap the next day. (Just imagine what real Covid would of felt like!)

    Seems 1 jab will be approved and my trial will be forgotten about but at least I helped out a bit.


    Also had results from an anti-body test, Neg for Covid but positive for a vaccine antibody so I was in the vaccine part of the trial :)

    Got the AZ vaccine about two weeks ago. Was grand on the day. Next day was floored with a fever and a whopping pain in the shoulder. Couldn't eat.

    After two days of that the fever started to pass but the shoulder pain and nausea stayed for over a week after. Was fairly weak for that period too. Still not fully right but of course it was worth it. Hope to get the second shot within three months.

    Had my AstraZeneca vaccine yesterday - made sure I took paracetamol, even woke up to do so. Feeling very tired today with a sore arm but apart from that nothing of note.

    Had my vaccine cancelled twice, happy to get it as where I work the public think it’s completely acceptable to come in with COVID even though they could send someone else instead or get delivery.

    Wishing this will be over quick.

    I received my first dose of the AZ jab this morning. My appointment was in the Aviva. It's a fantastic operation they have going on down there. It was very busy as well. Oh and I got a badge :D

    I could sleep for a year and my arm feels a bit.....odd and my sinuses have gone bonkers.

    Got Moderna yesterday. No major side effects, really just a sore arm today, similar to some other vaccinations, feels as if someone thumped it and I have a bit of a bruise. (Feels that way, don't actually have a bruise).

    The word here is that you're better off getting Moderna shot #2 at about 35-40 days, the side effects are much less. Up to 42 seems to be authorised.

    got it today up in Landsdowne, AZ , no syringes just some tab thing so was done before I knew it , efficient operation. No flu symptoms so far

    Got my first AZ yesterday had aches and pains in my back last night and had some leg cramps ( could be stress related) not feeling to bad today. Not sure why we have to wait for 3 months before the next one, maybe it will be sooner.

    Got my first AstraZeneca yesterday. Was fine all day, and didn’t even get my usual balloon arm like when I get the flu jab. However last night was tough enough, got full blown chills. Couldn’t warm up (no temp), then all over body pain, even my toes hurt.

    However totally fine again by now

    Cork City Hall this morning, AZ.

    Very impressive setup. So streamlined, hand sanitizer everywhere, disinfectant wipes, everyone masked, extremely competent staff at every level.

    I feel completely normal as of now but I'll report back with any changes. Three months seems like about ten years at this point but I bet it will fly by.

    I thought J&J was a 1 shot vaccine

    It is but they have a two shot trial going as well. Data in summer I think.

    I got first AZ dose yesterday. Grand for first 6 hours afterwards, then sore injection site and flu like symptoms. Exhausted, sore muscles and joints, sweats, couldn't turn over in bed without extreme effort.

    Now a day and a bitafter the vaccine, I'm on the mend. Still on bed rest taking panadol due to aching joints but feel I will be grand tomorrow.

    Delighted I got the vaccine - can't imagine what the actual covid would be like. But if today wasn't Good Friday, it would have been a sick day from work.

    Glad to hear it!!

    I'm freezing cold now this evening. Our house is very badly insulated but even with the heating cranked up and a water bottle, my extremities are nippy. I wouldn't have great circulation usually but the OH isn't feeling the same cold I am at all. No other issues really though so not complaining.

    Did anyone else feel chilly after getting it?

    Can I ask what you'd think somebody of 80 or 90 years of age would fare if they had the same symptoms as you had? Do you think they would find it tough?

    Tbh, I really couldn't tell you. Id be in my early 30s in cohort 4. From what I've researched, over 65s don't seem to get the same side effects from AZ. You're more likely to get them when you're under 65 or previously had covid.

    It was just like a very bad flu but I am feeling a lot better tonight and fully expect to be back to normal tomorrow.

    Yes I'm the same tonight freezing cold had to go to bed and try and get warm under the duvet taking paracetamol to keep the aches and pains away.

    I was frozen later that evening and then had proper chills over night. Bed was with a water bottle and extra blankets and taking one hand out had me shaking with cold. Only lasted a few hours though, eased off sometime in the early morning. All good tonight though struggling to sleep. But that’s nothing new!

    My partner got AZ today at 11am.
    She passed out and I had to collect her from private hospital where she works. Now she past out getting blood test a few weeks prior so we know her immune system/body doesn’t like needles.

    She felt 70% ok for the whole day but nobody would feel ok after passing out.
    Last hour has been tough (13 hours since injection). Sweating profusely but freezing cold at the same time. All over body aches and pains in random parts of the body including toes. She took 2 neurofen plus which seemed to work wonders and has now gone to sleep. I anxiously wait on the couch downstairs hoping no negative side effects occur. The blood cloths is a worry as she suffers from endometriosis and also she had been getting some pelvic pain.
    What a though 12 months this has been for the world in general. These vaccines seem harsh but it tells me they are effective with such a blow to immune system.

    I am not looking forward to my vaccine which will probably be in 2096 at the rate the government are going. Love to have it over and done with though.
    Hope everyone is good and our country don’t see any fatalities from vaccines. Imagine living your life locked down for the last year only to get a cure and it kills you.
    **** that.

    My grandfather who is 85 got his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine last week. He collapsed the day afterwards. He hadnt been feeling great and stayed in bed. He got up a little later and his legs went from under him. He is fine since thankfully and is glad to have gotten the vaccine.
