Had mine a couple of days ago and feeling a little strange today. Headache, dizzy, body aches, disoriented. Anybody else?

I had the Astra Zeneca, Cowboy. Had it at 10am. By 7pm I felt cold and achey, as though I had a cold coming on. I awoke at about 3am and felt even achier, but by 8 in the morning I felt like I'd had a bad cold that was now disappearing. By 10am (24 hours after the jab) it was completely gone. So, I feel I was lucky - I had side-effects, but they really weren't bad or inconvenent.

The only other thing was a slightly sore upper arm (where the needle went in) for a couple of days, but again it wasn't debilitatingly uncomfortable by any means.

Which vaccination did you get? I hope you're feeling better today ;)?

A tip for next time Mark, I was advised to keep moving the arm for a while after the vaccine to stop it from aching. It works ;)?

I seem to have got off very lightly. I just felt a bit tired after the first Astra jab. Had the 2nd yesterday and, so far, absolutely no side effects whatsoever.

Similar story here - I was quite tired and had a sore arm for a couple of days, the effects were perhaps a little worse after the second dose. I had the Pfizer.

I had the Pfizer brand JJ.

Feeling much better this morning. It wasn't like a bad flu I felt it was kinda like a flu lite - ha. Anyways glad to hear the folks in the UK are getting vaccinated quickly. You guys had a very rough ride. My second jab is 16 weeks out and our local governments seem to be fumbling around somewhat with the vaccine rollout - and everything else for that matter. Not complaining though. Could be worse - way worse.

Yes, good description, Cowboy ;)? I don't think mine was even quite that bad, thankfully. Also, what I felt didn't bother me much since I knew it was the vaccination and oughtn't last long.

Glad you are already feeling better!

Based on your profile, you are in priority Group 11. Given an uptake of 92.5%, there are between 3,924,872 and 10,118,106 people in front of you in the queue for a first dose of COVID vaccine across the UK.
📅 Given a vaccination rate of 3,473,685 a week and an uptake of 92.5%, you should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 14/05/2021 and 13/06/2021.

You should then get your second dose by between 06/08/2021 and 05/09/2021.

Maybe not too long for some protection then.... 👍😎
Keep on 👍😎
