Sorry folks. Another question about AstraZeneca

Just doing a bit of personal research. Is there anyone on this site who had a bad reaction to the first AZ vaccine and have now had their second jab.? If so, was the reaction to the second one better, worse or the same? x

My sister had AZ. First jab was a bit shivery, sore arm and headache but really nothing to write home about. Second jab absolutely nothing. She has a different autoimmune disease from me.

Brilliant. Thank you.

Hello Sheila, I had my first AZ Jan 29th and 2nd March 23rd. I was really unwell with flu symptoms for 2 days in bed but had an appointment at hospital on the 4th day and felt quite a lot better so managed to go. 2nd jab I felt absolutely fine, was so happy with outcome. Hope this helps alot. We have come along way in a year, I lost 3 friends early this year but have managed to stay fit and well and even had an operation yesterday, NHS were wonderful as always 💙x

Excellent. Thank you.

I had flu-like reaction the following day after the 1st. Nothing at all happened after the second.

So reassuring. Thank you.

The bit of evidnce i heard from john campbell yesterday was people feel more symptoms on first AZ but not on second and there was no evidence of any rare blood clot on second AZ. Conversly people tended to feel more symptoms on second pfizer than first. But we are all different and the majority get no symptoms .

I remember always doing that as a nurse in 80/90s and we always used bums as injection site 💉

Yes and then the protocol changed as it caused more damage in the 90s, so we will see xx

Hi Sheila. He is on You tube & he is Healthcare Teacher amongst other things. His daily videos about Covid are well researched & from reputable websites. Just type in John Campwell in You tube search if you are interested

Meant Dr John Campbell

Aged Crone posted recently about a bad reaction she had; fairly sure it was the AZ jab... she had to refrain from having the second.

allanah in reply to charisma

Yes, a shame and everyone is differemt and we all have previous medical issues. But for me getting vaccinated as prescribed is best x

Sheila_G profile image
Sheila_G in reply to allanah

Absolutely. No question about that.

All reactions should be reported on the Yellow card scheme.I'm mystified (well actually not)

That not one person I know who has had a covid vaccine even knows about it!

It's shocking.

Ironically I discovered it when I first suddenly developed RA in late 2015 as this occurred a few weeks after my very first ‘flu jab. I had begun to wonder if the jab had triggered the RA though the medical professionals were not convinced. I didn’t report it......

Millie66 in reply to Bookworm55

It's so hard to say what starts it but anything that messes around immune system is a good starter.

Mine (Im convinced) started after a bite tick or spider, I was never the same after that however when I was in my 20s eye developed uveitis which can be a symptom of RA? So perhaps it was there anyway.I have had flu vaccines and have become poorly after but never quite believed the link.

Now however I am not taking any vaccines, I do not trust the new science and the data was just not there.

Nothing for immunocompromised people at all.

The roll-out now is the trials.

It's 100 % risk as to opposed to a tiny covid risk.

In fact we (my husband) think we already had it and really wasn't too bad.

I'm hopefully taking part in Antibody research, which I think is the way forward.

Hi Millie, I know quite a few people who are hanging on for the antibody treatment as a preventative measure. Not here but in Italy. Some friends. I’d have been interested in it too, but as not available yet I’ve had my vaccines as my immunity is so compromised due to my RA med. So to not have the vaccine(s) was/is more of a concern to me.

I have no fear of the 'virus' at all.But very fearful of new tech that's been now pushed onto the unvunerable.

It's a personal choice.

It is indeed. We do what we feel is correct for our own circumstances re our health and for our beliefs. I haven’t had anything pushed on me. Totally my choice. Let’s hope it is for the majority of people. Good luck with the antibody research. I’m sure a great many people would be very interested to receive that. Glad the virus wasn’t too bad for you. Sadly for some it has been.

Some of our regular post-ers on here have spoken about the Yellow Card scheme to inform other people about it and the importance of reporting reactions/side effects. It is also detailed on the NHS website and Gov.uk where you can report reactions online to the scheme.

Interestingly again , i spoke with the specialist nurse whilst having my infusion today . She said that all the staff had mixed experiences of their first jab but none of them had any symptoms with the second ....?

Sheila_G in reply to allanah

That is good news. I will be glad when I have hed my 2nd.

I had a week.of flu like symptoms and drowsiness, but no sore arm with the first dose. I had a day in bed ,sleepy and achy with the second dose and my arm was sore for a week . I have reported both via yellow card on line . Hopefully all the info gathered will inform vaccine development going forward so we don't get reactions next time. 🙂

Hopefully. Thanks for reply.

Hi Sheila I’ve had AZ jabs 1 and 2 and no reaction at all.Are you just collecting info from people with RDs?There is some research showing that younger women have a stronger reaction.In my family it was my youngest daughter in law....35... reacted the most ...extreme tiredness both times She slept for 12 hours then was fine.Everyone else is 45 +and have had no reaction at all. Some have had both jabs and all AZ.The reason the younger family members have had their vaccines is because of the work they do.

Interesting research you are doing.

Sheila_G in reply to L-ttie

No. Just wondering and thouggt I would ask on the site. There doesn't really seem to be a pattern. I think it is just the luck of the draw. Still, better a few off days than dying of covid.
