Just to say I had my covid vaccination two days ago (Sat 27th Feb) and I've been ok. 🙂 I'm currently on 11mg prednisolone, Alendronic Acid, Propanolol, Atorvastatin and Calci-D.
Yesterday my arm felt slightly sore at the point of the injection and also a little achey, but nothing really significant. I also felt very drowsy from about lunchtime onwards and mildly nauseous. This wasn't in any way inhibitive though and I've woken this morning (Mon 1st March) feeling completely back to normal. (Although my arm still aches a little)
I was given the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine and know there's been some discussion both in the press and amongst the general public around this vaccine causing some quite strong side-effects afterwards, with people experiencing several days of feeling quite out of sorts.
I and quite a number of people I know have been fine though. Many of you will already have been vaccinated, but for anyone still waiting and feeling a bit hesitant, I just wanted you to know that although each of us will react individually to this vaccine, it isn't a foregone conclusion that we'll suffer strong side effects.
Very pleased to have had my first jab. The whole experience has been reassuring as I know that despite being on an immunosupressant, I'm now better protected than I was before.
Wishing you all a happy and pain-free day.
