People might like to google "covid arm". This is a swelling about the size of a cigarette packet, which has been euphemistically described as very tender.

OK, that's a lot better than getting seriously ill with covid-19, but why go through this if you have had covid-19, and so are already naturally immune?

Someone needs to tell Macron, who has been spreading vaccine misinformation about the AstraZeneca shot (claiming its ineffective for over 65s) to the French population, who are already the most sceptical about vaccines in Europe- he's doing this to try and distract from his government's, and the EU commission's, own failings in the vaccine roll-out. Will Twitter ban him for fake news I wonder :D

A damned stupid,& misleading comment from David Getling, as any immunity you may have built up,after having the virus,does not last!
You're a fool,Sir!

I am not on his side, but how do you know?, no one else does, nearly every other virus on the planet endows its sufferers with reasonable future immunity, check out T cells before dishing out rudeness.

"You're a fool,Sir!"

No you are, and a very ignorant one at that!

The evidence for natural long term immunity is now absolutely overwhelming. In the ENTIRE WORLD there have literally been only been a handful of verified reinfections: mostly in immunocompromised people.

Sorry if the truth upsets you.
Well, i would rather go with natural immunity than unknown immunity. In fact why aren't we tested for anti-bodies before even considering vaccinating a population? Too simple? NOt enough money in it for Serco?

I see there is still no published data from the Yellow Card system. The MSM are very quiet on this especially as the US has been publishing data for over a month now. I've looked at the US data and it would appear Guillaine Barre Syndrome and other neurological conditions, Anaphylaxis and Death are the rare but high impact side effects. Sadly this dataset doesn't cover the AZ vaccine.

As you can see from some of the hysterical comments, there are plenty of terrified people who only want to hear how safe the vaccines are. In fact they get abusive at any suggestion that there might be a downside.

From a selfish point of view this is fine by me, because, one way or another, everyone who has the vaccine makes for a quicker return to normal.

Nobody in the uk has ever died from anaphylaxis during vaccination so very low risk indeed.

Strange that any decent human being wouldn't consider it ok for people to want to hear that the vaccine is safe.

People being sore after a needle jab being reported as a “side effect”. What’s next? Flying makes people’s ears go funny? Exercise makes you tired?

Being sore after a jab for a day or 2 is to be expected. It’s the same with all jabs. I wish the headline wasn’t so negative. Makes it sound like peoples arms are falling off.
Wis the post wasn't an exaggeration:

Had my jab on Thursday morning. By Thursday night I fell unwell with a chill, tiredness and headache. Now Saturday and just beginning to feel better. Quite surprised by the way it affected me, as I’m fairly robust normally. Won’t put me off having the second dose. A small price pay on the road back to normality.

I reacted strongly to my Covid vaccination, aching all over, very tired, just for one day. May have been because I had had Covid recently. No problem. Worth having if it helps to end lockdown!!
