My wife & I both just had our first jabs at our local clinic / medical centre in Perth - AstraZenica.
Administered by nurse but overseen by doctor.
Both feeling fine so far and so are we.

Doctor spent a little more time with my wife (Asian) asking her to tell all of her friends that it was a non-event.
I'm guessing because there is a perceived or observed reluctance or indifference to vaccination within the Asian community.

If it all turns to crap later today then one of us will let you know.

Myself, wife and two adult children had our first Pfizer dose last Friday. Quite a number of people at Westmead getting the same. All of us had a sore arm for 24 hours and thats it so far. Next jab in 3 weeks.

Had the first AZ shot last Thursday, sore arm for a day, no other effects a week later. Non-event.

Perhaps quality wine thins the blood? Helps against clotting? LOL that’s my “science”.

Hong Kong has a magnificent vaccination scheme. Slick and efficient. Uptake has been poor due to political resistance ( thumbing government since you can’t throw Molotov Cocktails these days ) and superstition or anti-vax lack of logic. Other factors being there’s no need to vaccinate due low cases and not allowed to travel anyways. Stock market up and property market up so most doing well enough to be selfish and lack urgency.

After all the BS virtual signalling with masks to protect your neighbour, an Asian courtesy so the community claimed, now they have a real opportunity to protect their neighbours but now way! Asses- just awaiting similar Aussies.
Many thanks Gnadenburg for the considered response. I shall now formulate a plan along with the company of a few nice and smooth red ones. I haven't been asked to get vaccinated yet so it may prove difficult to stick to the plan.

Second AZ jab yesterday afternoon. Very slightly sore arm, it feels like a bruise, but nothing else.
I'm mildly aggrieved - I didn't feel a thing after the first jab!

1st AZ jab on the 12th - sore arm, mild headache, some body aches - on the 19th I had a bit of a fever and another headache (all good with paracetamol) - so far, so good.

1st AZ on the 18th, never felt a thing, no sore arm or other side effects. Have to get the flu shot in 2 weeks. My GP then said that I will be getting anti pneumonia shot as well. Didn't know that such a thing existed.

1st shot on 19th (see above) and no noticeable effect.
2nd day - like a mild hangover. Tired and feeling a bit fuzzy. Arm a bit tender if you poke it. Wife complaining of body aches. Early to bed and good night's sleep.
3rd day - arm still a bit tender, otherwise all seems back to normal.

Neither did I until I had a letter from my GP five years or so ago. It had never even crossed my mind that it would be something you could have a shot against.

it is the pneumococcal vaccine, to reduce developing pneumonia.

Second Pfizer shot. Slight soreness in the arm, less than the first shot, even less than something like a tetanus shot. No biggie at all.

been waiting for the washed out, fever/chills etc to kick in. Have a good day of movies and footy (the proper kind with a sherrin...) to watch.

nothing more than a very slight headache which was knocked over with a few panadol. The wife says it’s jobs around the house, looking after the kids today. Footy will have to be catch-ups on Kayo.

really no big deal

note. 2 reds and a scotchy scotch last night about 5 hours after the injection

Japan finally starting the great rollout. (There must be some athletics event approaching.)

Had my Pfizer #1 yesterday, among the very first batch following medical staff nationwide. Slept well, but my upper arm feels as if I must have hit a cupboard knob yesterday. No headaches, nothing so far.

I wrote to my doctor to ask if there was anything in my case files that worried him, and he gave me a clean slate. He also kindly gave me an account of what the general reactions of the doctors and nurses in his hospital had been to their double packs.

Did the Flu Influenza shot, 2 weeks later phizer and 3 weeks later second Pfizer. Sore arm for a day after the Flu shot, absolutely no effects from the Pfizer, or second phizer. I am now fully vaccinated, feels good.

Got my first AZ today. No pain but am feeling a bit shivery 12 hours later. I was expecting this as the same happened to my wife, her sister and brother-in-law. A small price to pay!

Likewise, I had my AZ on Monday morning and had a bout of feeling shivery 12 or 14 hours later. For the 24 hours after that I felt, for the first time in 14 months, very lethargic I could not sleep for more than a couple of hours at a time - just like the days after back-to-back-to-back LHR trips. Now, 48 hours after the shot, I feel back to non-working normal.

Yes. Scientifically valid. Natural immunity as a consequence of contracting Covid is unpredictable, for some no detectable antibodies are produced, for some they fade quickly.

Why you should get a COVID-19 vaccine – even if you’ve already had the coronavirus
