First AZ 30 hours ago, so far no downsides at all.

What did surprise me was how small and painless the injection was, see stuff on TV and looks like syringes from the 1800's - and taking forever to complete the injection when the reality is a couple of seconds tops.
For anyone not crazy about injections at the best of times TV programs really should be more honest as the picture they present would put off some and it appears the Melbourne shutdown has made people realise the only way forward for now is to vaccinate.

I think if done correctly then that's the typical outcome. There are many on here who have posted experiencing a sore arm, and after seeing a number of images on TV of people being jabbed with the needle going in much more deeply than others, I would not be surprised by this.

long lasting immunity the old fashioned way barring unexpected variants. Also alarming amounts of Myocarditis when MRNA vaccine interacts with natural immunity. Sounds scary to me.

Had the first Pfizer jab yesterday.
Woke up this morning with a slight sore arm which has now subsided after a few hours.

I hear the second one is a bit worse the morning after. A shot of coffee or vodka should do the trick.

I have heard of some side effects including fatigue, headache, brain fog, fever and sore back. These can last 1-7 days.

You've still got 14 days until maximum efficacy from Jab 2.

Having either single or both shots, still don’t excuse you of the quarantine requirements of each state…. *sigh* Enjoy Howard Springs!

First AZ dose 5 days ago and nothing, nothing at all, I've had worse mosquito bites, I was surprised actually the needle is very fine barely noticeable.

The point of a vaccine is to elicit an immune response. Therefore mild symptoms should be expected.
Many posts reflect this. Others miss the point.
indeed if pilots are the respondents, it is a good discussion on awareness of potential threats to performing your work and holding a medical.
The actual injection itself (ouch or not) is a mute point.
Ditto The flu vaccine.

Checkboard had his 2nd AZ jab a couple of days ago. Mild redness at the jab site. No other side effects.
My turn next week.
It can't come too soon as the Indian variant is gaining a foot hold but so far, no increase in fatalities. Yet. (UK)

My Dad is 86, got his first AZ jab on something like 27th March, second one on 24th April.
Absolutely ZERO side-effects whatsoever. He remarked to me that the worst part of the whole thing was the boring 15 minutes he was required to wait before he walked back home.
Having my first AZ on Monday, was booked somewhere else for Sunday but got the run around (I haven't been to a Doctor for about 6 years) as they wanted a 'health summary' from a previous doctor - I rang a place I had one followup visit to 6 years ago after a small and pretty insignificant op and they said I was still on the system and to come in on Monday.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in my city there are mass vaccination hubs and I'd bet that everyone in the queue is NOT clutching a 'health summary'.

Second shot approaching. Planning to offer the opposite shoulder. Nothing quite like spreading out the old poisons, eh?

My father who is in his 70s had the AZ about 2 weeks after me with no side-effects.
Had my second dose a few days ago in the same arm - No side efffects at all.

did some digging around as this seems pretty alarming as described - yet when you look at the paper being referenced, one of the lead Dr's / scientists of this study is publicly stating mRNA vaccine in this instance is working as described.
The study: https://academic.oup.com/cid/advance...iab465/6279075

Dr. Byram Bridle's claims are directly refuted by Ogata's own response here:

So makes me wonder what the real story is here? Why is Bridle quoting a study that proves the opposite of what he's claiming?
