Vaccine side effects: My experience of them and what they mean

Why do some people get side effects - and do they mean you have greater protection?

The more evidence from real world data we get, the more we seem to learn that actually the vaccines perform very similarly, with AZ being a fraction of the cost and easier to transport.

Although I'm sure the Pfizer jab is very good in its own right, compared to the AZ one it is comparatively "poopoo" as you so eloquently put it.

more deaths from thrombosis from the Pfizer than the AZ but even than that still doesn't mean that Pfizer is dangerous - the incredibly low incidence of these where most people who have had it are elderly & already have health conditions says it all. Basically they probably would have had clots anyway without the vax & died of covid if they hadn't or been very ill
I csnt believe the comments here.

An untested drug where the manufacturer insisted on legal protection to stop you suing them has been connected with a large number of very serious side effects and deaths.

There is no way on earth I'll be letting them inject me for at least 8 years. I appreciate all you people wanting to be test subjects though. Will prevent them from killing me.

A large number?

If you are referring to the 37 blood clotting events (out of 17 million vaccinated) then you should acknowledge that this is a normal level of this type of occurrence (actually statistically slightly lower) so I'd like to know what all these other "very serious side effects and deaths" are.

The vaccine isn't directly connected to any deaths, do not spread falsehoods about such a serious matter.

Please get vaccinated. For the sake of others and for yourself. Do not listen to the BBC or anyone else jabbering on about 'side effects' - they're totally normal and par for the course with ANY vaccine.

The lack of trust in science in a modern technological society baffles me.

its been tested properly & extensively- the shorter time frame is because of urgency, worldwide co-operation in development & the biggest issue not having to worry about getting finance in development. Also they had a previously similar vax & they had the virus genetics id by China to base their vax development on

It's a personal choice but it's not fair to say that this hasn't been tested - it's been through rigorous safety and efficacy tests.

Yes, there is a risk that with many factors more of people being vaccinated that some rare interactions and side effects will be found. Personally, I'd prefer to take that risk over the risk from Covid.

I know about 25 people who have had the vaccine and not one has had any side effect other than a few of them having a slightly sore arm where the jab was done for a day afterwards. So it is extremely rare to have any severe side effects
The 500k people who had severe side effects listed on the yellow card reporting will take heart at your narrow minded opinion.

Remember when 99.9% of people have no effect from coronavirus and you were frothing that any bad effect means we all have to stop risking it? Same goes here.

We both caught the virus in January (thanks for the "present" anti-maskers).

My jab this afternoon: my partner had her jab two weeks ago and she turned blue with cold and shivers so I'm wondering what I'll get...

To you anti-maskers - yes, you might not die but some lingering after-effects are not so pleasant. Think of your family and not yourselves when you refuse to wear a mask or get the jab.
You're quite welcome. Personally I find the lingering after effects of the erosion of civil liberties worse than a cold, but hell, that's just me. Removed

When there is scientific evidence it prevents infection and transmission, I may consider it.
When there is data proving it won't react with the specific drugs I already take, then I may consider it.
Until then I will rely on the success of my own immune system to fight it, as it already has.

I have have numerous jabs across the years for a variety of different diseases, some I haven't even noticed others have made me sick.

The fact is Covid is being treated differently due to the impact and devastation it has caused means its higher profile.

The fact is all vaccines have slight side effects that impact people differently.
0.01% of people getting the virus get any effect. 2% of people getting the jab get serious side effects.

Remember, you insisted that everyone had to stop work and hide for the 1 person that might have got covid in a bad way. Same applies to a drug that has been linked with deaths.

Ultimately there’s a choice for adults with an IQ over 80:

a). Have the vaccine

b). Don’t have the vaccine and shield until the UK has herd immunity (2023?).

I had the AZ one and had zero side effects (not even mild pain on the injection site).
You don't get to discriminate against the millions who won't take the untested and dangerous drug.

Your choice, take it and shut up, or, dont take it and carry on with life as normal.

There was no chance that you were suffering from something else?

It may well have been a reaction to the AZ jab but unless you can actually prove it was you can surely only say that it was probably/possibly a reaction.

You could possibly have come down with Covid, flu etc. and the timing of the jab was just unfortunate.

A few days of flu like symptoms seems to me to be a small price to pay to get us out of that cycle. The vaccine also appears to have another advantage - seems I'm less likely to die of COVID if I have it. Win win! Or am I missing something?

For me it is very simple, unless you are medically advised NOT to take the vaccine, then you should do so.

Perhaps the introduction of a vaccine passport (plus one for medically exempt) might help persuade.

After all no foreign trips, attendance in large gatherings might just work.

You are not forced to have the vac but there are downsides if you decide selfishly not to have it.
sieg heil, Papers please?

Covid Reich, coming to your street soon courtesy of Covid1984

Why make it all about the jab, surely a Negative test result would be enough to go anywhere and do anything.

"You are not forced to have the vac"....but that's exactly what people like you want, whether it mandated or via the "back door" by the loss of basic human freedoms...like some sort of Covid Fascism

Everyone is free for opinion. I would not disagree what you are feared of, but I also fear those who caught covid virus become ill in a couple of years with incurable cancers or with whatever disease/conditions you can think of. Mind you covid virus is also a piece of RNA.
As ever it is hard to separate cause and effect

If we took a sample of all those who have been vaccinated, it would show that they are very selfish with an excessive fondness for WW2, inflated pensions, free TV, and alt-right politics. As well as an irrational fear of foreigners

Nothing to do with the vaccine. Just the Telegraph and Mail Boomer brigade happen to be at the front of the queue

Both my husband 68 and I 65 have had the AstraZeneca vaccine, and were given a card with an AZ sticker as proof. Side effects: shivery, tiredness and feeling generally off. The next day we felt fine. Vaccination is the ONLY way out of this crisis and back to normality.
It's not the ONLY way. A better way would be to let the young build up antibodies so they can live with this virus. Just like those born in the era of Spanish Flu acquired natural immunity

As for the over 65s today, yes there is more risk but you've had a good run. Given the disaster that is Brexit and the national debt you've heaped on others with your pensions you won't be missed either

So many flaws to the argument!
Let's be clear on the "if I had to do it again" argument:
You now have certainty that you'll have some adverse side effects of the injection.
You've been told that having it decreases your risk of being seriously ill with Covid.
That's all. So what was your personal risk anyway?

Im looking up reactions as I had an exhausting few days, really tired and strangest of all I woke up 4 days after the jab with a streaming cold, sneezing and blowing my nose, the following morning it was gone as suddenly as it had appeared.
If you're under 75, not overweight, not living with any liver, kidney, heart, lung or other ongoing health condition you are at an almost zero risk of serious illness with covid but assaulting your immune system with a vaccine. Removed
The last vaccine that I remember that was pushed and lightly tested was to help pregnant women with morning sickness. It produced thalidomide babies. I'm going to sit back and watch for a bit, thanks all the same. It's just I can't get over the fact governments have put money aside to pay out law suits connected to the vaccines. That tells me governments have doubts. Removed

Thalidomide wasn't a vaccine.

The government have not put money aside to pay lawsuits.

I've had the Oxford vaccine and no ill effects at all. Maybe you are just a wuss, James? Or bigging it up for a story? Removed

James Gallagher:
"I warned before the rollout started of the dangers of falsely assuming health problems that happen by coincidence are caused by the vaccine."

James it is like this: An ageing, probably slowly declining person whose routine in a home is clockwork, menu too, nothing changes day in and day out for years gets a vaccination, dies within hours; the most likely reason is the vaccine ok

I had similar side effects to James Gallagher. I'm a 56 year old male I had my Asta Vaccine this Monday at 1:30pm all was fine until 11pm that evening i suddenly started to shiver even my teeth were chattering and i was having hot and cold flushes. I crawled into bed and that night i got very little sleep. It is now thursday and although feeling a lot better I'm still getting mild flushes.

I have written to the PM to ask him to come down hard on the Indian gov't as it appears they are blocking the export of jabs to the UK.

We cannot tolerate this blatant threat to our national security and must retaliate wth all means at our disposal. Nothing should be off the table!!!

I have recommended to the PM that certain sections of society stay in a permanent state of lockdown!!! It will significantly decrease public health risks, as well as levels of crime and anti social behaviour but without damaging economic output!!!

The only thing that slightly worries me is if the vaccine ages you prematurely.

Apparently James Gallagher is in his mid 30s according to this article - he looks a hell of a lot older than that in my opinion!
