    I think I read somewhere that you should drink plenty of water and take some paracetamol . . .

    I’ve had 2 and tbh didn’t find the much preached prescribed method worked. Because we’re all probably in for a lot more of these I think some alternative methods should be explored.
    So my advice is get p*ssed and sleep it off. Then let us know if it worked.

    Are the nurses meant to lash a plaster on after the jab? I seen loads of pictures on my twitter of people showing off their vaccinated plastered arms along with the form/card you get before I had my first one 8 days ago and was expecting the same and never got one. Ended up with blood on my shirt. So it just made me curious if people are doing it themselves or if different clinics/parts of the country are doing that and others aren't. (I know it isn't a big deal either way :laugh:).

    if they draw a bit of blood, yes. I had a plaster second time. I can’t remember the first.

    Mine stopped bleeding more or less straight away so they didn't apply a plaster.

    I did read that the vaccines do offer decent protection against this new Delta variant which is good news.

    Seems as though AZ isn't fairing quite as well as Pfizer against it though.

    They've just announced on the news ( maybe a scare tactic ) that it may be compulsory for all care home staff & NHS to take up the vaccine & NHS staff have a lower take up % wise than the general population , if true am very surprised by that :eeek

    Had my second jab last week. blinked and missed it, didn't even realise they'd stabbed me. Zero side affects again.

    Hoping anyone suffering side effects recovers quickly, couldn't fault the organisation and friendliness of the staff who guided me through both jabs.

    I was in an out within 10 - 15 minutes, Mrs waited over an hour for her first Pfizer the other day.

    Bit late to the party I had my first last week. I had a dead arm for a few days and became very tired quite soon afterwards

    As a result I had a better night's sleep than I normally get so roll on the second one

    surprised it wasn't compulsory for NHS staff from the off, they were screaming about being overstretched so you'd think something designed to reduce the stress would have been compulsory

    According to Monday's government briefing the AZ is 92% effective and the Pfizer is 96% effective (at stopping serious illness and hospitalisation), so it's not faring quite as well but still extremely impressive?

    That's the sort of difference that could arise by simple things like the age of recipients or different proportions with different pre-existing conditions. After another month of results or in a different country the outcome could be reversed.

    Not enough that it should be influencing decisions.

    Find it quite bizarre they never did this. There is already precedent that they all have to have Hepatitis vaccines as well as MMR.

    Was just about to type this exact thing. AZ isn't being given to under 40s in this country, so the average age of an AZ recipient will be significantly higher than the average age of a Pfizer recipient.

    It's the Delta variant now mate, the "Indian" variant was too easy to comprehend according to WHO.

    Assume many have already caught it and don't see much reason in getting a vaccine for something they will be exposed to so much it is almost inevitable they will get it again in some form.
