It was still worth the discomfort, the benefits far out way the few days of feeling under the weather.

I agree, even more so after report today of reduction in hospital admissions of vaccinated age groups in Scotland.
I looked up the PHE report on Covid-19 vaccine side effects after seeing a scare story shared by someone who proclaims himself an anti-vaxxer. The alarmist story cited PHE as source. I went to PHE website and found nothing to disturb me.

Has anyone had their second vaccination?  If so was the reaction to that the same as for the first or milder?

I've felt pretty grotty from my first one  :'(, still don't feel right yet and not therefore keen to have a repeat session from the second vaccination.

Any views on this will be read with interest - thank you.

When I had my first (and only one to date) the doctor said that the reaction to the second one could be worse than the first.
Thankfully I had very little discomfort from mine.

My husband has had both his vaccinations. The first one caused a little stiffness in the upper arm and he had no ill effects with the second.

Husband and I  had the Astrazeneca jab . I expected to sail through with a bit of a sore arm but we were both floored by the side effects. Second jabs will be " interesting ".  ???

I had the AstraZeneca almost 3 weeks ago with no side effects apart from feeling a bit nauseous for a day. No pain at all in my arm. Everyone else I know who had that one was fine as well, those who had the Pfizer complained more about a sore arm.

We had the Pfizer but my sister in law who had the Astra Zeneca was nauseous and had a very bad headache into the second day.

Seems to be quite a variety of side effects from the first one.  Not too keen on the suggestion that the second could be worse than the first  :-[

I've heard of several others who had a bad reaction to the AZ jab. I had headache , dizziness , joint and muscle pain , shivering and uncontrollable trembling , stomachache , loss of appetite and fatigue. It was pretty unpleasant but worth it. At least I won't be surprised second time around.  ;D

Not too keen on that either.  I haven't had one yet but my father who is 94 has his second one next week.  He was very tired after the first one 2 days before Christmas so will be keeping a close eye.

His second one in Jan got cancelled and he was told the new date over the phone. 
I wonder has anyone in this situation - ie no little card with the second appointment on - had a reminder as he isn't 100% sure of the details? 

I wrote it down as soon as he told me so hoping it is correct.
