no reaction what so ever
When I went for my jabs, I told the jabber that I never ever get any reaction from all the Vax I’ve ever had and that they should adjust for body mass.
I said that I should get double dose because it’s not fair that a petite person gets the same dose as me.

Just go back a few times like the 5 jabber.

Had my first jab couple of weeks back, Pfizer, 30 yo. I was fine on the night after the jab, but couldn't lift my arm the next morning. I work as a casual with a major liquor store and I'm not much help if I can't lift boxes ... so told my boss that I can come in for my shift, but can't do any heavy lifting. So just did customer service & registers that day ..

2nd jab on 09/10 - waiting for it .. been told that the 2nd one will knock you out of the park ... but can't wait to travel once I'm fully vax'ed

Other than perhaps being considered silly, or selfish, would there likely be any harm to continually 'boosting' from across the range of vaccines? I guess the studies are few on this?

From my vague recollection, the guy with 4 jabs said he wanted to make sure his vaccines were recognised wherever he was travelling (overseas) - hence taking Pfizer and Astra Zeneca.

Seat Daughter and Seat Daughter-in-law both had 2nd Pfizer over the last week. They are both in their mid 30s and both had a strong reaction that was bad enough to take a sick leave day. Headache, lethargy, shivers, sore arm and extreme tiredness. Seat daughter recovered in about 48hrs, DIL was tougher and back at work after 24hrs. My whole family is now fully vaxxed except for 1 hold out cousin on the Central Coast of NSW. Phew.

So, update on my 2nd Pfizer jab on 09/10 in CBR : OHHHH MYYY GODDDD !!! what a 48 hours I had after the jab. It was like someone put me inside a punching bag in a gym and had a go at it ... absolutely terrible headache (splitting headache), soreness everywhere in the body, not just the arm ... the general feeling of being put through a wringer and coming out completely mangaled!

I couldn't get off my bed for 2 days ... felt absolutely tired ... started to stoop when I was walking around the house and my flatmates suggested that I leave the door to my room unlocked when I go to bed, so that they can check in on me, if & when needed ... one of them went "see, we don't want to deal with a dead body in the morning, it ruins my breakfast 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 " He is a funny guy

Hope you are feeling better now @Ade. Sounds like you had a similar experience to Seat Daughter. She said it was pretty bad. Also, it was her first time of being ill with a baby (1 year old) to take care of. New respect for her mama, apparently!

13yo Mstr andye3 had his second jab today. The Olympic Park hub was much less busy than a few weeks ago and he had been jabbed 2 minutes before his scheduled appointment time. Forgot his passport but they accepted my driving license as ID

Thank you @Seat0B :) I felt a lot better yesterday, back to my usual chirpy self.

But today, I feel a bit down ... I have got watery eyes and I feel sleepy ... may be it's just the after effect ... I've been told that the body could take up to 14 days to get used to the vaccine ... so I'm thinking there might be some ups and downs until the vaccine is embraced by the body completely ... Like If I could, I'd just drop what I'm doing and take a nap ... but unfortunately, that's not possible for an #EssentialWorker :)
Post automatically merged:

In the end I had a lethargic week
I think this is what is going to happen to me ... I feel very lethargic today ... may be I will be like this for a week and then feel better ... "lethargic" was the word I was looking for when I typed the previous response.

Whoa! Massive respect for what you daughter was able to do ... It must be very challenging ... I'm a single bloke, up to no good after the jab, tossing & turning, moaning and need not take care of anyone exept myself ... but taking care of a 1 yo on a normal day is very challenging, I'm told, but doing so after taking the 2nd Pfizer is something amazing .. #MassiveRespect !!

If anyone is curious the third covid vaccine booster is recorded on the certificate as the second and the second is the first. Initial one isn’t recorded at all (but is on the full statement).
I’m looking for when I’ll be able to receive my third dose, having had the second in early June.
