    Just got the Moderna jab. So far feeling tired and sore muscles.

    I had to get the shot if I ever have hope to return to the Philippines one day.

    Been nearly 3 weeks since my second shot of the AstraZeneca stuff. After the first I was like death warmed up for 2 days, freezing cold & not 100%. I was apprehensive of the 2nd shot but all went well with no problems & you would never notice that I had one. Fingers crossed now all will be well.

    Well! Have been on the waiting list for a month (I am Category A1 - Oldtimer, diabetis etc).
    Now they are offering it to 16 years and older - go figure!
    I guess that what comes from living in the Aussie countryside - here one day - forgotten the next!

    My wife and I had our first Covid Vaccination shot 2 days ago in Redcliffe, Queensland. I'm 82 and my wife is 72 and it was a breeze - No after effects whatsoever. Our 2nd shot comes in August. Fortunately Queensland has a very strict border control and the number of active cases are relatively small. So it's a nice climate year round and a great place to live.
    Cheers, Roy

    We've both had our secondA-Z vaccinations - the second with less problems than the first, and we've now passed the 10 day period for maximum effectiveness.

    Unfortunately, it seems as if there's a surge of variant Delta in our area of the UK - so we're all being asked to go to a "surge testing" centre.

    Fortunately, the NHS (England) is providing these tests, so there's no financial disincentive.
    Just shows how quickly circumstances can change - the infection rate has doubled from 30/100000 to 60 /100000 in a week.

    Stay safe everyone,

    Colin

    Me and the wife had our second Moderna shot Sunday. At fist it was just like the first one, sore arm, light headed, and minor body aches the day of the shot. Monday came and I woke up to the same but no light headedness, but that soon changed. You may know I drive a front discharge concrete mixer and by 1 PM I was lucky to make it back to the plant without killing anybody. I first experienced the light headedness followed by loss of peripheral vision then tunnel vision followed by a loss of concentration then losing depth perception all the while feeling as though I was floating outside my body. Once back at the plant they won't let me near the truck to wash it out and the company had to call an Uber to take me home. I'm the type of person than never has adverse reactions to medication but these one has scared the hell out of me.

    Day 2 as I write this from home I'm feeling better after sleeping 14 hours so hopefully I can return to work tomorrow. Many of the guys at work were suspicious of the shot and now after seeing what it did to me they vowed never to get the shot now.

    My partner and I got our first AstraZenica shots 3 weeks ago. She had a sore arm for a day, I had "flu like" symptoms (chills, headache, lethargy) for a day and I rarely ever experience "flu like" symptoms. Our second shots are due in 9 weeks.

    Like our cousins New Zealand just across "the ditch" from us, we have been incredibly successful at keeping the virus out. Both countries being islands with no land borders helps but shutting the borders to all arrivals also helped. Our borders are still shut with only citizens and permanent residents allowed in, and they have a 2 week hotel quarantine with many tests, all at their expense, to sit through before getting out. There have been a few small outbreaks, all from those in quarantine, but so far they have all been contained.

    Where we have fallen down is in the distribution of the vaccines. It has been slow, inefficient and riddled (in my view) with political incompetence. No doubt there will be some consequences in the national election due by March next year.

    But, all things considered, we have lived up to our self imposed label of being "the lucky country".
