Tetanus shots are reputed to be the most painful I've heard.
My apologies for not replying earlier.How are you feeling a few days post vaccination? Did you experience any issues?
The process was very efficient and I was in and out within the hour, including all the administrative stuff that happens beforehand.
20 minutes in a queue at the frontWhat sort of administrative stuff? Beyond standard GP clinic type ID, questions about possible heath or condition issues that may preclude you receiving the vaccination? 'Under an hour' (so I'm guessing 40-50 mins) is much longer than I would have expected; how much of that was waiting to start the process?
And how did you receive the info, please? Via your workplace, a personal message or text or maybe via a professional organisation (given what you do).
Thanks PF. I guess it was given in a hospital facility ( being Pfizer), so you had to go through a type of “admission” process, as if having a Day procedure?
If so that really surprises me. Not concerned, just that it seems more bureaucratic than I imagined.
That’s the type of procedure I’d expect for the vaccination. I’m interpreting PF’s procedure to be more complex, but I may be wrong in that.Both had an admin procedure to go through. ie Lodge Personal details, Medicare Card, answer questionnaire and the like.
My COVID test admin was give my name and DoB, which was checked off my booking and then present nose, please . This was in the early days and I went to a drive up screening place as a volunteer to get the numbers up in my region.Both my CV19 Tests admin took longer than my annual flu shot
Hopefully on same trajectory, did some heavy work today, seems to have made it less sore compared to overnight,... at 36 hour markQuick update. The muscle soreness in my arm decreased very quickly over the past day or two and now completely gone. No local skin reaction at the injection site.
Dr FM had her second jab of the Pfizer yesterday. Had her first in the UK, with no side effects. Today she reported pretty severe muscle pain, but not so bad that she couldn’t still work.My apologies for not replying earlier.
I have had no ill effects at all apart from the usual sore arm that I get with the Flu vax. I returned to work yesterday on a 10 hour evening shift no problems at all.
I’m anticipating based on experiences I have read of US and UK colleagues that I may get a reaction with the second shot. I’ll report back on that.
