COVID Vaccine.

I received a card to show not only that I'd had it but to take along for the second jab as it has details of the vaccine I received . I also received a sticker in the shape of a heart to say I've had my jab but sadly no tea and biscuits like you receive when you give blood but whilst I had mine at the local Basketball stadium and their Cafe was open I wasn't allowed to buy anything purely open to offer sustenance for all the volunteers who did such a great job . I think it was free for them because sure lots of people including me would have gladly put a contribution "behind the counter" for them :)

Feeling less aches today and had a better nights sleep.
Can I ask anyone else that had the vaccine, did you get any info re side effects in a leaflet, anything indicating the batch number, or a date for your 2nd vaccine
I had the Oxford vaccine on Tuesday and was given an information sheet with possible side effects. And also a card with the vaccine name and batch number.

Good luck with the vaccine Pearl. My wife and I are both handicapped and housebound. We have been self isolated for ten months in our own little effort to fight this virus and we will wait for a few months before we have our injections We have good friends here on SW who are all extremely a big help to us in keeping our spirits up. Many thanks to all for your friendship and may your future be brighter than 2020.... Peri and Victoria.
I have looked at all of the available information and feel perfectly comfortable in getting the vaccine. We haven't gotten it yet, but we're on the list. Looking foreword to getting the shot.

My wife had her 1st a few days ago with zero side effects, she works in the healthcare industry and her employer arranged it for everyone.
I called my GP, and I guess I'm not eligible yet. They said if you have health issues or you are over 65, you are to the front of the line, but I guess having one lung/asthma/RA and a few other issues isn't serious enough????? They nicely said they'd call me, yeah right, don't believe that for a second. So, I'm just being a hermit. :)
My wife got a card as well, I'm guessing we will have to have that card to travel to prove you've been vaccinated? I'm in the states, I don't really watch the news, but I haven't heard anything about needing the card to go from state to state?

Wow, with medication you're on you should have been up there like me. I got mine in December because of my immune suppressants, you should get a second opinion on that.

Think I might. I have direct access to my Dr. through email. I spoke to a receptionist so that might explain it. I think I'll give it another shot! If catch covid, it might not turn out too good.
