Who has had their Covid vaccine then?

PostPost by: elanfan1 » Tue Jan 26, 2021 10:57 pm

Had mine earlier tonight (they kindly did my wife at the same time as they had some spare vaccine). Had the Pfizer one, back for the follow up in 11 weeks. The queue outside went around the block. Got out an hour and 20 minutes after the appointment time.

Feel happier now that I’m developing some antibodies though it will take a few weeks yet!

Anyone else? Which vaccine did you have?

I had my first one in mid December and the second on 6th January.
Not that I am bragging or anything. It is just that I am worth it!!
It took 30 minutes including the 15 minutes observation time.
Mind you the north of England is usually ahead. While they talk about it in London, round here they just do it.

I have redoubled my kombucha and fester production, & my horse and pig prosciutto are fine. Doubt anyone under 85 out of a nursing home has any chance of getting the vaccine this year in BC. Looks like the East of Canada is in trouble, so they may get it first.

Find out where the limits are, and start from there

Our Daughter had her first one in mid Dec and second one about the 10th Jan. My wife had the first jab 10days ago but no timescale atm for the second. Both are front line medics. I’m not, so not expecting mine any time soon. Based on my age it’ll be around the end of next month if the rollout goes according to plan

Age 72.
Text message Monday morning last week.
Vaccination last Thursday at local Council Offices - Astra Zeneca vaccine used.
Plenty of parking, no queues, no waiting, in out in 2 minutes!
But . . . no indication of when I get the second dose.

Nope. Too young at 48. Possibly by the end of the year but who knows.

With the Pfizer vaccine the recommendation is three weeks between injections (which was the gap between my daughter's two jabs). With the Astra Zeneca one it's a bit more complicated. There's an interview in this week's British Medical Journal with the leader of the Ox-AZ vaccine trials in which he says a longer interval gives a better immune response after the second dose. They tested up to three months and it seems that having the second dose too early can result in a 'smaller response'. So, up to three months anyway, it would seem the longer the gap the better.

I've had both jabs but then as I'm running the clinic I managed to get the dregs to save wastage.

My wife is 1B and I’m 1C in our state (educator and essential finance). She should be in queue any day and I’m slated for my first shot in March.

Seems to be a huge disparity between stateside and U.K. so far. Was your vaccine privately funded or part of local healthcare scheme? Seems to be a long way to have to travel (but worth it?).

My wife and I got our first Pfizer shots this week. Many of our friends have been, or are about to get, vaccinated.
Seems to be working here. We were contacted by our medical/hospital group, a private company. Others have got theirs via the county administration.
