    Our DIL a teacher in her mid 40’s who is shielding until end of March has her covid jab tomorrow, but today she has the first of a series of B12 jabs (?) at the doctors, three this week, three next week, then one every 3 months.

    Unlike the Covid jab this one goes into the muscle and she said it’s not very nice, she must be like a pin cushion with her two a day diabetic injections.

            Seems to vary from one person to another. I had the Oxford jab with no problems whatever. Friends have had the Pfizer one and have been poorly.

              Now you follow the pattern Peter. The Covid App people carried out a very large study which showed the Oxford Jab is generally better tolerated.

              Sometimes if someone has suffered side effects it can be attributed to possibly having had Covid 19. I think Helen may attest to that which is why the French now have the policy for those who can document they had covid, a single shot suffices.

              All said and done choose between a few side effects or a hospital stay - no brainer JMO.

                Don't be concerned Carol. We were def. ''off'' for 24hrs, but two friends who had the same jab hours before us, were fine. it's not either of the jabs, it's how one reacts to them. I took a positive view that the vaccine induced little antibodies racing around my system were finding their feet and making their presence felt.

                      My youngest daughter works in what is probably termed as a bio-tech industry. Staff in the labs have to be qualified and experienced, but even some of her colleagues are saying that they will reuse the vaccination. They should really know better!

                      BTW, it is clinical staff in the NHS who have to have the Hep B jab. I didn't have to have anything during the years that I had an office job.

                        Don't fret about it Carol, you could be fine afterwards.........being a bit younger than some of us!

                        Any transient after effects are nothing compared to the relief of having the jab.

                        Having read different things, I’m not quite sure how long after the jab that immunity starts building up. I’ve seen 2 /3 /4 weeks.............

                          I had the AZ jab almost 3 weeks ago with no ill effects whatever. I had mine at my doctor's surgery, a 15 minute walk from my home. My wife's was the Pfizer vaccine which was at a health centre 10 miles away that has the necessary refrigeration equipment. But we were lucky it seems. My wife's 2 sisters and brother in law all had round trips of 60+ miles, to Bath, Oxford and Andover.

                            it is not even compulsory for all clinical staff.

                            many trusts say they follow the guidelines from the green book.

                              Thank you for the encouragement guys.

                              If I can't go on holiday by the end of the year, even with having had the vaccine, I will feel very cheated!! .................................................. ..Carol
