David I did have a red mark and a slight lump where I was injected. But this year I and my husband also had a rash on our arms from the flu injection.

My husband had the Pfizer and no reactions at all. I had the Astra the side affect I experienced was 1 in 10.

You can put your details on the yellow card site. https://yellowcard.mhra.gov.uk/

There is data somewhere I read, The numbers of (mind expected) reactions where in the thousands. However, as there as been Millions of doses given. The percentage where considered to be relative.

Hope you both feel better soon!!

My wife is not well at all today. Fever, chills, sweats, exhaustion, headache, muscle pains and swelling of her arm. Keeping my eye on her.

Hello again, David. I'm glad that your wife made it to the vaccination centre, though I am sorry to hear that a couple of points were not as good as they should have been. At least you both know what to expect for the second vaccination.

Your wife had to stand for too long for comfort. This may be due to the social distance queuing, keeping people 2 m apart. A suggestion - could you borrow from somewhere a wheelchair for your next visit? My wife uses a wheelchair and when we went for her vaccination they were very accommodating, and yes I was able to stay with her throughout the proceedings.

I'm sorry that your wife seems to be suffering from after-effects. These will probably subside but from your earlier post you clearly know what to do if things to get worse.

Best wishes!

Oh well done David to you and your wife. I am taking S on Friday - he has autism and is very needle phobic - so wish us luck! I will be employing every trick in the book to try and make it as stress-free as I can. I'll be relieved when we're done.

We are having the AstraZeneca - I'm hearing mixed experiences re side effects from folk we know. Sorry you have been so poorly Karen.

Shall keep reminding myself that side effects are better than having Covid ...
