I reckon the answers will come with the UK folk as another ten weeks pass, because we are having the much longer interval between jabs.Thanks Ghost - I'm mostly looking for reports from people who've had both jabs, to see whether the second reaction is stronger than the first.
My friend - who HASN'T had Covid - had a very strong reaction to her first jab. She's wondering whether it's going to be as bad the second time round. I've been exposed to Covid but had no reaction to the jab at all.
I know a few people who've had their second jabs but, of necessity they are all quite elderly and they seem to be suffering less badly from side effects from the vaccine anyway.Yes I am starting to see reports from my friends come in about their second jabs but i can't see a pattern. I don't think we'll be able to predict. Maybe when more data comes in there will be more of a pattern but personally I think it's quite random.
Well I'm 71 and had flu like symptoms for 36 hours or so starting 24 hours after the vaccine. Not sure if having had in my 30s and again in my 50s bouts of what was called 'post viral fatigue'(both going on for a year or so) is pertinent or not. I've not been called for the second vaccine yet but I'll keep you posted.I know a few people who've had their second jabs but, of necessity they are all quite elderly and they seem to be suffering less badly from side effects from the vaccine anyway.
Hate to burst your bubble, but I got none of the extras . Tender arm for about two days. I couldn't tell if exhaustion was a side effect, or just the fact that I'd finished work for the day lol.Just had my first jab of Moderna today. Supposedly there are some fancy side-effects like complete and total exhaustion like you had just run a marathon. Plus, a new arm might grow out of my head! So there's that to look forward to....
But it does if a significant proportion of those vaccinated can't transmit the disease. And it is looking to be the case.Official government advice is that none of the vaccines give immunity, or prevent someone from carrying the C19 and being infectious, it is only a treatment to ameliorate the severest of symptoms to give you a better chance of not dying if infected.
So in reality the assumption that those not being vaccinated are putting others at risk, due to their selfishness, does not hold water.
Aw, the chances are you'll get a much milder version of Bastard. My husband has the flu jab every year and gets flu most years... but he aten't dead yet.
No, Myth.This does seem to indicate that the jab doesn't protect people very much, if at all.
