If you got AZ then you'll be called on schedule which is 12 weeks after the first jab. You won't get a different one.

I got my first shot of Az a couple of weeks ago. I’ve no idea if I’ll be getting a second shot of it or if I’ll get a Pfizer jab. So I am unsure when I’ll get my second appointment. It is looking like we may have inter county travel in June and I am chomping at the bit to get away from Dublin for a break. Looking on Airbnb July and August appear booked out and June is very limited. So I want to book a week in June now. If my appointment arrives for sometime that week I’m nervous about the consequences. June 3rd would be 12 weeks since my first jab. Were they keeping to 12 weeks exactly? I know Pfizer was 4 weeks to the day.

Any ideas are welcome.
You'll definitely be getting the second dose of AZ if you recieved a first dose of it.

As for the 12 weeks, the guy that gave me my jab told my that it would be 12 weeks to the day but I haven't heard of anybody who have recieved a 2nd dose of AZ yet so we'll have to wait and see.

Boom, getting it this Sunday, I am ecstatic. St. James vaccination center, which as far as I can tell is just on the main concourse of the hospital. Hopefully that means anyone else from here from St. James is soon to get the call.

did you get your first dose before or after they stopped giving it to the under 60s?

I was called by my gp for vaccination on Wed as I'm type 1. I'm already fully vaccinated because of my work. But they must be flying through the vulnerable category now.

I was also called by my GP practice yesterday too but I got my first shot of Az through my diabetes centre nearly two weeks ago. It was two days prior to the halt on Az for under 60s.

Good news, bad news who knows. Was glad to get called but now I won’t be fully vaccinated until sometime in July and with a lower efficacy than friends and family who are not high risk. It is all relative though! My heart goes out to those suffering in India. Very scary and sad reading of the awful situation there.

I would still see it as good news, the lower efficacy is still substantially better than many common vaccines and provides what appears to be good protection for almost everyone against the most serious of side effects of Covid 19. I am not a gambling man but the odds are in your favour in comparison to a) not getting one and b) negligible difference to getting a different one or being fully protected.

The reports from family and friends on Moderna have been just dodgy arms the next day, one friend being a vet in the middle of an operation when their arm went a bit weird. But more symptoms from the second dose, which sounded similar to what I had from Astra Zeneca from my first dose.
