Wife and I had ours last Friday at Mass Vaccination Centre in Cardiff, used the Pfizer jab, very well organised, straight in, wait 15 mins after then leave. Military people there helping out, can't fault it at all. They've got this right !

We're supposed to phone and book in for our jab now. The 3 numbers given are continually engaged  :(
Who says the Welsh NHS doesn't have a sense of fun? "Leave them off the hook, bach"
After 25 minutes hitting redial I got through  :D :D :D :D
We're in at 2:25 today - strangely, I got quite choked up when it was booked. Reaction to the fear of not getting through (out of all proportion, of course)

We had our jabs - no side effects yet although a strange urge for bananas and a desire to invade Poland has overtaken me!
I joked about the monkey thing with the nurse who said that was why we had to remain for 15 minutes so they could film the transformation.
The jabs were done in a Nightingale hospital - scary to think it could have been full of desperately ill people on oxygen rather than crusties shuffling to the needles. Amazing what we can do when we have to

I'm finally scheduled for my first jab on Thursday the 25th!!  Moderna jab.

I'll not complain at all about the 30 mile trip to a small mining town to go get it. I'll walk it if needed!

I was surprised by the emotional rush of it - actually felt choked up. Don't tell the French, they'll say it was a side effect and stop using it for a fortnight :)

I'm thrilled to let you know that Mrs. Subversive is now scheduled for her first jab (Pfizer), 2 days before me!   :D

She gets full "atta-girl" points for getting both of us signed up.

Remember - scientists say the best vaccine is the one in your arm :)

Yay - great news  :D

I had mine last week.  I had a slightly stiff arm for a day and was a bit headachy the next day, but otherwise all good.  I hope you are feeling OK.  It seems to be a lottery as to whether you get side effects or not, but given the alternative, nothing to worry about  ;)

Mine was at our local football stadium and they had it so well organised.  They parked everyone in blocks, then sent in sections of the car park in turn.  Once in it, was pretty free flowing and I was out again in no time   :)

Just remember, side effects from any vaccine a great sign that your body is responding well to the perceived threat!
