First AZ shot about 5 weeks ago, absolutely no side effects at all. I only knew which arm it was because I watched him do it.

Local pain, malaise, chills, rigor are all due to an immune response which is producing neutralising antibodies that in turn produces IgG and IgM and will save your life so I was delighted to suffer

Some patients who are immunosuppressed (ie cancer patients having chemotherapy) do not produce many antibodies and although we are keen to immunise them they may not be fully protected. They do not seem to get many symptoms when vaccinated. BUT in normal people and professional pilots there seems little relationship so provided you have had a proper vaccine I would not worry. Pfizer and moderna tend to produce more symptoms on second dose regardless of interval. AZ less so and may be the other way round as you can get a response to the adenoviral vector it contains.

As this is a requirement of employment are the side effects, if severe, covered by workers comp?

1st Moderna generated moderate fatigue for 12 hours, beginning 12 hours after shot. 2nd Moderna caused 101.1 F fever, chills, severe fatigue beginning 12 hours after the shot, unable to sleep. Fever gone after six hours, fatigue after another 24.

Perhaps that partially explains my lack of side effects as for some reason I've already got IgG immunity.

Had first dose of AZ couple of days ago. That evening felt pretty unwell with flu symptoms - fever / chills; body pain; stiff neck; sweats and a pretty bad headache. Fine by lunchtime the following day.

I would certainly have been entirely unfit to fly (i did not even feel fit to drive my car).

Everyone is different but i'd factor the possibility that you could feel pretty rubbish for a couple of days into your planning.

Be safe.

Pfizer product used, after first inoculation absolutely no side effects for both wife and I.

Girlfriend reports significant increase in her libido after first dosage. I heartily endorse Pfizer products .

I would recommend the Pfizer vaccine if available, remember Pfizer also make the little blue pill.
If they can raise the dead they can certainly protect us from the Wuhan flu.

For all you clowns ranting about having the jab, did you ever consider the big picture.
I had the jab back in February and suffered quite severe side effects.
Casa has since suspended my class 1 medical.
I am now fighting with my loss of licence / income protection insurer that NOW refuses to accept any liability because the jab is still in the trial phase until the end of 2023.
Best of Luck.

That’s not the big picture. I am sorry, sincerely, for your predicament. The harsh reality is that some people will be adversely affected, but they are a tiny tiny fraction of the covid risk.

The government has indemnified the vaccine makers. Its high time they also gave income support to the vaccine takers-or hefty death benefits to their survivors. Why should a few random unfortunate people have to carry the can for the entire nation?

This is a good informative thread, but in addition to side effects experienced if any, I would like to also hear of the facility type where you got the jab, was it in hospital, your GP, a pop-up clinic, a company organised programme, or something else.

Also it does appear the first 24hrs are the most critical for the onset of severe health deterioration, what measures did you put in place to ensure someone will respond if you were to find yourself incapacitated? I'm sure your GP would do the right thing by you but what if they are busy?

2 x Pfizer. Both times just got a bit tired, had a nap and was fine after that.

My airline along with the local health authority had everything set up at the company's medical facility. Register with the national ID card, go in, get jabbed, get an 'endorsement' on the vaccination card, on your way.

First Pfizer jab 10 days ago. Slightly sore arm for about 36 hours and that was it.

Organised through my secondary employment.

Thanks anyway, but I’ll go by trusting my MK1 immune system over this injection or clinical trial as it is at the moment, I was offered it but declined it, this virus has over a 99.5 % survival rate In healthy people, take it or leave it.

I had the 2 shot Pfizer, had a sore arm after both doses and that was it. My wife was floored for 3 days after the second shot.
Have you got a link for that? I found one on CNN that says precisely the opposite:

Phase 3 trials are complete and approval has been given for the use of some vaccines, not all.
Safety monitoring continues until 2023 or 2022 depending on the manufacturer, Pfizer or Moderna. Safety monitoring is normal practice for all vaccines and does not constitute a trial per se.
As far as I can determine the trial phase is over, engaging a competent lawyer will help .
