Vaccination

Walked to the surgery this morning. From arrival to outside, less than 2 minutes. Most impressive. I had theAstra Zeneca version and as I live close by, was allowed home. Didn’t feel the needle at all just a very light pressure as the fluid went in. I shall let you know how I fare in the next few days. 

They said they are aiming to do the second vaccination in less than 12 weeks. Guess it depends on the size of their patient list. 

Our walking buddy E., still hasn’t been called although her husband had his last Sunday. They are however, registered with a huge practice.

DB is 3 weeks into his post Pfizer vaccination time, still zero side effects yet my dentist said he and all his staff had sore arms and general aches. The luck of the draw I guess.

Last evening we watched the new Tom Hank’s film, News of the World and really enjoyed it. Glad I didn’t live in those times though!

  1. I had my first dose this morning too. I went to a small hospital and they had six vaccinators working at full pelt but again, it was very well organised.

    1. Quite impressive really but I do worry about how much doctoring time is lost.

  2. I am hoping to get mine in April. Things are slower here in Canada due to a few mix ups with the arrival of the vaccines from Belgium. Sounds as if things are moving much quicker over in the UK.

    God bless.

    1. Our government may have been way too slow at doing some things but they were certainly quick off the mark at ordering even before anything was proved to work.

  3. Got my Moderna vax yesterday at a local pharmacy. They do 1 patient every 1/2 hour (to allow for observation). No drama. So happy to get it as much as you are happy to get yours. Arm a little sore this morning. Next shot in 4 weeks. Take care....

    1. Moderna doesn’t start here, at least I don’t think so, until late Spring. Glad you got it done.
