We just had our flu shots 6 weeks after 1st AZ so midway. AZ or flu shots had no effect on me but the wife reacted to both. 2 days off work after AZ and 5 days before back to normal and a day or so unwell after flu jab. She says her immune system must be better than mine because of the reactions but Im not sure about that?

No front page headlines if you dont have massive complications,funny about that!
Just looking at twitter & many people saying how bosses/companies are giving employees time off to get the jab & some even paying a small bonus,hope the government is taking note & get on board quickly.
Imagine the money they could save if enticing people with a small payment worked against the cost of support packages for lockdowns.

“Have you had the jab?”

“No, I’m waiting until the government gets desperate enough to start paying people.”

Second AZ shot yesterday and none of the horrible effects of the first. Now I just have to last the next four weeks; the latest is that you are at risk of clots between four days and four weeks in.

You're pretty safe. The incidence of clots after second A-Z shot is, for all intents and purposes, zero.

If people are so worried about blood clots they should probably take the high road and take their girlfriend or wife off the pill. Far more likely to develop clots with that

Both Pfizers.

No after effects either shots, except a feeling my arm took a needle.

I suppose you want a free App for your iThingy so you can be told when to get your bribe.

Come on just do the correct thing and get the bl00dy jab

No i dont actually & i didnt have to be told or coerced to get it.

No I am not 100% happy.
I am p!!$ed off at people who do not follow simple requirements, finding whatever excuse they can, other than a medical one, for not getting the jab and for all being experts in 20/20 hindsight.

That's been suggested by the Opposition but Prime Minister (or the 'Mime Minister'), the dishonorable, happy-clappy slogan bogan has made fun of it, YET, he did exactly the same thing essentially with regard to the no-jab no-pay scheme with respect to childcare.

So, don't hold your breath for him to take note. He'll just sit back until the disaster becomes untenable, then will erect a dozen flags, put some people in military uniforms behind him as usual and blame someone else or respond "listen mate, I don't hold a syringe" followed by ordering a bus ready to throw the general's under when it all goes south.

Sadly, as the election nears, he'll throw out some fists full of dollars to the lemmings, get Clive to run some ads and smirk his way to another victory. If people want to be angry about something, they should be angry that Shorten presented him with a smorgasbord of complex 'Hewson-esque' policies and presented a huge target at the last election, otherwise we likely wouldn't be in this position now because it would have been handled differently.

Recent lancet article re clots is reassuring.

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/l...693-7/fulltext

Personally no reaction to AZ shots.

Both AZ, I had no problems other than slight fatigue on day 2. My wife on the other hand was diagnosed with encephalitis (brain swelling) presented as slight confusion, and problems finding words……on the mend after being placed on steroids. Apparently not a common side effect, but a known side effect to both vaccines.

Can people not tell the difference between a bribe and a penalty?

A futile attempt at humour.
It's good we haven't heard from anyone that developed blood clots and died.
