Quite a few of my comrade carers have now had their vaccine jab, as have a good proportion of my oldies. A large proportion, especially 3 of the carers who had it, have been quite ill after having the 'Oxford' Astra Zenica jab. They've been bad for 2 or 3 days after. Swimming head, temperature, tiredness, heavy arm, even coughing. The oldies, who seem to have mainly had the Pfizer jab, have all suffered no ill effects though. Anybody else heard anything like this? I've now been offered a vaccine (don't know which one) by my dear employer, but have told them to put it on hold for a week. 1) I don't want to be ill for three days and can't afford to be off sick (no sick pay) 2) I wonder about its effectiveness against the variants. More news to come soon? 3) The second dose you're supposed to have in 3 weeks won't be given until 12 - against scientific advice.
