1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I got to the check in desk at the vaccination mega-centre to hear the young woman in front of me trying to explain she had an appointment and getting out a foreign identity card. After about ten minutes and several people after me who had rapidly gone through the other desks, the person dealing with her waved me away to another desk. I asked the adjacent one if they could take me but was told “this is the Moderna queue” ( for under 40s). I was leaving after the jab and looked back to see the same woman at the same desk still waving various items- card, phone etc around, remonstrating with the clerk.

    No ill effects whatsoever 16 hours later (AZ).

    I had my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine last weekend with no ill affects other than a sore shoulder.

    Second AZ a week ago and it maybe made me slightly drowsey for 2 days, but my spells of breathlessness (asumed to be a consequence of assymptomatic C19), which appeared to be made far worse by the first jab, have very largely disappeared - I have had none since the injection. (On a whim, I measured my blood pressure during a few breathlessness episodes and that was 140-170/80-90)
    The constant aches and tingling in both legs and hips, the right hip especially, have subsided enormously too, but walking is still a minor chore rather than a pleasure.

    I was extremely sceptical about reports that second jabs cleared some symptoms, so I don't see any of it being purely in the mind.

    Could really do with full unhindered use of my legs though.....

    Blimey, Young People are getting a bit pretentious these days. Couldn’t you have proved you were pretty Moderna yourself? Sung them a song by Billy Fury or some such?

    Ha! Yes I pointed out my hipster beard and other styling cues. She said ‘get lost grandad’.

    Second AZ today. No symptoms at all so far. Going to have fish and chips and a rather nice Chablis.

    After I had my jab, I went to the pub and ended up drinking rather more beer than is advisable on a Monday. I can't be sure that this wasn't why I had no bad side effects, nor that the jab didn't save me from a nasty hangover. Maybe it was both. More studies are needed.

    I have one foot in uk and the other in France. Just want the paperwork from both countries to enable easy passage at the ports.

    Second AZ Saturday morning. Even less of a reaction than to the first one. Thank you NHS + volunteers.

    Two days out from second AZ jab and not a birdy, nothing. The nurse said side effects are less with the second injection which I joked would be “less than nothing”.

    2nd AZ jab at 12:05 today. Ok so far. Hopefully will feel ok tomorrow, as jab#1 hit me the day after.

    It took me a full week to recover from moderna #2, but I feel absolutely fine now. Hopefully be a while until a booster is needed.

    had my AZ#2 yesterday 0940, no side effects apart from a very sore arm (which I always get with a vax), way better than the three days of feeling sh!t i had with AZ#1

    Second AZ for me on Saturday. Since Monday evening I've had an absolute humdinger of a cold, the first for maybe five years. All of my symptoms are given as possible side effects, but I'm wondering if the culprit is more likely the less than optimally considerate person in the post office, also on Saturday, who took their mask off to sneeze.
