Tell me about it. How long will it be until you get the second one? When they started giving them out, it was two weeks - now it's what, twelve weeks?

Already people are acting like we're back to normal - "Boris Johnson says we're not going into lockdown again" - like we can believe anything he says...

I agree mate.
If we don't behave there will be another lockdown. I've had first jab doesn't mean I can charge about willy nilly.

I was told 11 weeks but wife (NHS) told me it will be 12.
 

Seriously?

Mrs S and I are getting jabbed on Saturday. We've both already decided that that jab or not, we'll still be "ca'canny" as they say in her part of the world ("proceed carefully" for those like me who come from South of the Scots/English border).
Would be a shame to f*ck it all up now.....

We booked our jabs separately through the NHS website after receipt of the letter (my wife is level 4, I'm level 7) and encouraged to book the second jabs as well...12 weeks ahead. We had Astra Zeneca but I'm hearing from friends given Pfizer they couldn't book second jab.

We were told at the time of our first jab it would be 12week gap, this may shorten dependent on progress of programme and availability, even after the second jag I won’t be rushing out wild for a couple or three weeks, to mess up all the good work for the sake of a couple of weeks delay would be madness.

Had mine at local hospital almost 3 weeks ago and was given date for second jab on 7 May around 10 and a half weeks after first jab. Had Pfizer jab only side effect was soreness at site of injection for about 3 days.

Just had my second Pfizer jab after 11 week gap, all good with no effects.

It's amazing how many people who say not having the vaccine etc are now wanting it. Anything to do with alternatives of having it for travel passport or having to pay for, and hoping for, a negative test prior to travelling and again when returning. Obviously tests will initially be at inflated cost...

Bit worrying that they say 2nd one worse especially if you've had covid.

I had covid and was quite ill with it, had second jab a few days ago and apart from the usual ache in my arm, had absolutely no problems.

Got the text yesterday and am booked in for a week on Tuesday. Have to travel 20 miles for it, so it sounds like they're trying to give me the Pfizer one, as my girlfriend had hers in town and she got the Oxford one.

Still terrified of needles, but hey...

Different situation to you as you’ve had Covid I think but I had my second Pfizer jab some weeks ago and had zero side effects. I had more side effects from my pneumonia and flu jab last year. It’s not down to the vaccine but the individual person. I know of one person who had about three days of side effects after her Pfizer jab but it’s better than being in ICU, being fed through a tube for weeks due to Covid.

You’ll barely feel it mate as the needle is so thin. I’ve had cancer treatment for 18 months and been stuck with that many needles, you get used to it - and they’re nothing like as fine as a vaccination needle - blood transfusions, spinal injections, bone marrow samples taken out of my pelvis etc. I didn’t even use gas and air for the spinals and bone marrow samples - just had a local anaesthetic. You’ll be fine mate.

Reading what you've gone through, I feel totally ridiculous. At least I can admit to myself it's just the most ridiculous fear to have, and I'm sure it'll be just fine. Check back in a week and a bit to find me sprawled on the floor...

My wife and I had second Astra jabs today. Her 1st jab resulted in 24 hour reaction and my 1st no reaction (slight arm soreness). So far no reaction for both of us this time 🤞.

Lol! Not ridiculous at all mate. My cancer treatment was a piece of piss compared to many. I had one dark day where I broke down in September 2019 and a rough trot after my stem cell treatment where I lived off fluids and Ready Brek for three weeks but other than that, it was just vomiting, diarrhoea and hair loss I had to put up with. I was luckier than lots around me in hospital because I came out alive on my legs, not dead on a trolley so I count myself lucky. It’s given me a different outlook on life too so I’ve learned something! I try to find the good in everything! You’ll be fine mate.

I'll be thinking of this when I get that tiny needle in my arm. I've known a lot of people who haven't made it this far because of cancer and they all went through far worse things than my worst experiences put together.

Glad you're here to tell the tale.
