Yes, that’s for sure. I was a bit anxious on that exact point when my mum (87) reported no effects at all after AZ shot #1.I'm telling myself that the upside of feeling off for a day after my AZ shot last week is that it shows my immune system had kicked in to make antibodies.
Interesting to hear how differently the clinics are operating. The only person I interacted with was the Nursing person who did the complete check and administration.Three staff in the room - computer operator / recorder, the doctor who administered the injection and I think a nurse-guy who just looked on; there to help if necessary. All went very efficiently.

Thanks for your report. If you don't mind, was your vasovagal like a fainting type episode? Cheers, glad you are well otherwise.I have a few health problems. My GP said my chance of dying if I get covid is 1 in 10 and of getting long covid if I survive is 2 in 10. So I had the first AZ dose on Thursday at the GP clinic. There were plenty of 1B patients lining up as well as me. Unfortunately, I had a little vasovagal episode; the same as when I had the 2020 Flu jab. They will be watching me like a hawk when I have the second shot in July.
Only a slight weariness on Friday. Otherwise, no swelling or bruising around the injection site, and no other side effects.
I didn't actually faint. Last year, the flu shot was given through the open car window because of covid. After about 10 minutes, I started to feel really warm and light headed and giddy. The GP took my BP which was very low. I stayed for a long time in the car with the seat back lowered until I felt better and my BP had gone back to normal.Thanks for your report.

Thanks for that. I had a similar episode on JQ to HNL. There was fortunately a Dr onboard whom sat with me while they gave me oxygen. Initially, they thought I had a cardiac episode, because my arm flailed against each seat back as they dragged me to the rear cabin and, hence, I had significant pain in the upper torso. To this day, I don't know what the vasovagal syncope was caused by and haven't experienced it since.I didn't actually faint.
