    Non-update update.
    Sat 26th June was 28 days after 1st vaccine.
    1972 North County Dublin Pfizer @ the Helix.
    Nothing on portal(awaiting 2nd appointment) or by text. Just rang helpline and was told no escalation available untll 28 days +5 days. Nothing can be done untill then. Nice enough person on other end of phone, could kind of tell she was fed up giving people bad news/no news.
    Back to waiting I guess.

    Portal updated with 2nd vaccine date. Friday @helix 2nd July. That's 34 days after initial jab(29th May). Yay me.
    No text yet. Hopefully this means others waiting 2nd Pfizer dose from helix will start getting appointments soon.

    Decided to contact my GP and see if they still were doing vaccinations, the good news is they are and the better news is that I am scheduled in to get one tomorrow. Delighted to be finally getting mine.

    Exactly the same as you. Text just arrived.

    I am in Lucan on Friday morning, so I will need to make sure that I am out of there by 11:15!

    I got 1st jab of Pfizer in the Helix on 15th May.

    I got a text last week to get 2nd jab on Sunday just gone. I wasn't feeling up to it as I've been unwell since the 1st one so a texted back "New" for another date

    Got a text today for appointment this coming Friday which I'm now happy to attend.

    But I'm really glad I deferred it as I'm eventually starting to feel a bit better and more ready for the 2nd jab.

    Very good service, I was worried I'd be pushed way down on the list but that was a risk I was willing to take.

    OH (38) got her appointment for Thursday 1st July at 11:30am at the Helix.

    Trouble is she's on a site visit that day (ironically to a hospital), and can't make it (these visits are planned months in advance), we rang up and they said the best we can do is request a new appointment which could be any time in the next 3 weeks!!! We don't want to wait that long as we want to be vaccinated asap.

    My appointment is tomorrow afternoon at the Helix.
    Would it be worth A. Her coming with me tomorrow in the hope of by then some no shows will mean an excess of vaccines, and they'd give her a 1st dose? (my mothers neighbours did this, He had an appointment, she (in a similar age bracket) didn't have an appointment, but they both went together and both got done). The Girl on the helpline said they could not advise this (though of course they can't advise it).

    or B. her go on Thursday morning when the vaccination centre opens (does anyone know what time the 1st appointments are?), and get the shot before her day onsite.

    or C. Call my local GP and explain the above and see if he can do it this week?

    You might get an exception, given the circumstances. Certainly no harm asking.

    I chanced my arm and asked if my wife could be done, when I was getting my shot. I was asked if she had any underlying medical conditions, and then politely told if she didn't, she'd have to wait her turn. Thought that was fair, and actually I was pleased to see that queue jumping isn't rife.

    I'm fair shook today after getting second moderna jab yesterday.
    In bed, head throbbing and aching all-over.
    Even when I make a sudden move it's like getting a shock.

    24 hours of feeling unwell with fatigue and banging headache after second Pfizer,
    Partner had second jab on Saturday and Sunday was a write off, all in a good cause though so no complaints from us.

    I am due my second while I am in holiday with 3 kids and I am planning on traveling back up for it .. I would hate to be totally ****ed after it .
    I am hoping my second is pushed out to nearer 5 weeks instead of the 4 weeks

    Fair enough. My OH is working in health (though not front line), and does regularly visit hospitals, so that could sway it in her direction.

    I was a bit sick after the first as well but when the sick went it went went fairly instantly so hoping if I can get a good sleep tonight it'll be gone in the morning.
    As the other poster said it's for the greater good and I'm glad to have it done and dusted.

    Age:40
    Registered on portal:1st June 2021
    Location:Dundalk
    Appointment text: Never
    Vaccine received from gp: 28th June 2021

    After escalating to hse via twitter and on phone I still had no app as of this morning.

    Spoke to security girl at dundalk vac centre yesterday and told that just 2nd doses all last week and possibly sefond all this week.

    Happy that gp called this morning and invited me in so saga over, second appointment 28th July 2021.

    Dundalk appears to be a impossible to get app for circa 40 to 42 year olds, lots of people in waiting room waiting for appointment a month, another guy at gp said some of his colleagues sent to Helix last sat and they hadn't them on system, my other half 42 also sent to Helix but didn't have issues

    First dose went fine for me save for a sore arm for 2/3 days, but nothing Nurofen couldn't sort out

    I was planning to go into the office on Friday (the day after I'm getting my 2nd dose), but if I even feel slightly dodgy Thursday night/Friday morning I'll just stay put. A 90 minute drive can wait.

    Hoping I'll be OK though. It's pretty rare I get sick from anything thankfully.

    Did these symptoms start last night for you, or today?


  • Registered Users Posts: 438 ✭✭ Paranoid Mandroid


    Does anyone know what groups/doses they are doing this week in Punchestown or Citywest? Interested in the 40 age group. I've noticed from this thread a couple of 2nd dose Pfizer and AZ in citywest...has anyone age 40 got a first dose at either locations this week? cheers, wife still waiting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 120 ✭✭ Luluk


    Got my first Pfizer today at The Helix. Was told next dose will be given in Cloghran, near Dublin Airport. I assume they're adding more capacity for the younger groups as I hadn't heard of this centre being used for vaccines before.

    I got jab at 10:45.
    Arm started getting sore around 5pm.
    Was feeling a bit shītty around 9pm so went to bed.
    Kept waking during the night and getting worse.
    By morning I was in bits.

    Nope, know a few 40/41 including myself still waiting over 3 weeks now for an appointment.

    Edit: Also know a couple of 42yr olds getting their jab this evening in Citywest - they got their appointment last week.

    received text for 1st apt. for tomorrow afternoon at City-west. 42 yr..

    Husband (37) is getting his first dose this Thursday in the Helix, having registered last Monday. Seem to be doing well enough in the Helix for this cohort.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,109 ✭✭✭ mojesius


    Had my first dose of Pfizer in Gorey today, home is South Wicklow
    Age 38
    Registered 22nd June, received appt text on same day

    I've a banging headache despite painkillers but just delighted to have it done!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,684 ✭✭✭ Tim Robbins


    Sorry, I should perhaps have clarified. On vaccine no. 1 my wife had this very issue (we were 3 hours away) and did indeed travel back during the June bank holiday weekend, just as you suggest, even though it ruined our first weekend break in over a year. But that's just us, I suspect most people on vaccine no.2 in particular might be less enthusiastic about breaking mid holiday. I'm speculating but I suspect a lot of people in July will want to defer, and defer by at least a week. I was just highlighting that issue. As is apparent from my posts on here I'd walk across broken glass for the vaccine but talking to friends I'm seen as a vaccine zealot in that regard.
    No worries mate, hope you get your juice :-)

    Also in citywest tomorrow (42) - - couldn't tell you when I registered off the top of my head but it was probably 3 weeks ago, I think the portal was open 10+ hours for the 40-44 group.
