    Just to give some good news,

    https://metro.co.uk/2021/04/21/only...th-covid-in-uk-after-having-vaccine-14446918/



    "There are currently 1,973 people in hospital with coronavirus, down drastically from the 359,829 on January 18. "



    Both Pfizer and Astra Zenica have been used in the UK :)

    I myself had the AZ and had no side effects that I could attribute to the jab. I get my 2nd jab on the 12th of May and can't wait :)

    Moderna!!!!

    My opinion: if you can get the shot early in the day ... and you can keep your body moving, hydrating, for the rest of the day, it may help?

    Post 1st (had at noon) shot I was mildly flu-like symptomatic for a day.
    Not bad.

    2nd shot (had in the evening; 9pm): heavily symptomatic flu-like for 2 days ... then much better on day three.
    And its DONE.

    I've had both my Pfizer shots, 1st was OK but the second one made feel quite rough for a couple of days.
    I caught the virus last year right at the beginning of the epidemic and was very ill but not hospitalised. It took me over a month to recover.
    I consider myself very fortunate and am glad that Mrs W and I have had the vaccine.

    Had first Moderna a few weeks ago. Felt kind of blah... like someone had their thumb on the record for two or three days.

    Got the second shot last Thursday, and had to drive for a couple days for work. Felt awful all day, night sweats, fever, and frequent urination, for two days. Symptoms gone by Sunday morning.

    Had Moderna. Felt under the weather after the first shot for about 12 hours. Felt lousy for about a day after the second shot. Then fine. Wife and son had phizer with almost no issues. Glad to be vaccinated.

    I had the J&J yesterday, no problems, just a slight ache in my arm.
    Only 1 shot so no going back for a second one.

    I had the virus last year and I'm not taking the Frankenccine. I hope he recovers soon.

    Got my second shot of Moderna yesterday morning. Other than some soreness where I got the jab, I feel fine. Even had a few wobbly pops last night.
