    My wife is a nurse and had her jab on Wednesday. She's felt pretty drowsy since and had bad head aches but was told this is quite common and nothing to be worried about.

    Seems quite common for vaccines in general tbh.

    Yeah it is. Nothing to worry about. She will be fine by tomorrow or Sunday.

    I'm proud of her though for what she's been through and for being one of the first in her team to get it. She's very high up in nursing now but still is active on the wards from time to time

    That's great news, but won't be available until spring/summer. It's great having all these various types of vaccines as if one of the vaccine is not suitable for one person it may offer them an alternative. However, having extra vaccines will not speed up the roll out, we need better distribution and more vaccinators

    That is a good sign, its shows that the antibodies in the body is reacting to the vaccine which will in tern build up the immunity required

    Saying it will not speed up the roll out isn't really factual though, especially when the vaccination programme is still in its infancy. Yes we will have some issues but that would likely be the case even with only two vaccines approved, but I'm glad this is being worked on in conjunction with the armed forces. But having a greater quantity of vaccines available means that as things progress we're much less likely to be choked by supply problems so things will naturally tick along more quickly.

    Has she had any strange desire to go on a spending spree of Microsoft products since having the jab?

    ....no? Didn’t think so. Well done her. A few in my office have had it and said all they had was a sore arm for a day but nothing else.

    Agreed for the reasons Craig outlined, but also, having that additional vaccine stock creates greater momentum for expanding the distribution network and for the training of staff to administer.

    The juggernaut that is the mass vaccination program is already rolling.
    Distribution is far more advanced than most think. Brigadier prosser said they have set up a distribution network the size of a supermarket chain in 4 weeks.

    Also there are a lot of volunteers vaccinators standing by for activation day.
    And many more are being trained every day.

    There've apparently been some people saying they'll only accept the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine because it's British, and purely for nationalistic reasons. Frankly, I don't really mind which vaccine I get, so long as I actually get vaccinated. To refuse a vaccine purely on the basis of where it was developed is frankly shameful.

    To be fair, I saw an article like this too. The source was 'a leading doctor' which usually means it's nonsense.

    You have a point, though it wouldn't surprise me if there are a small handful of people who are behaving along these lines.

    A fair point. The, "none of that foreign muck", types.

    Anyone refusing a vaccine on type alone should go straight to the back of the queue, ungrateful t**ts.

    Also ignores the fact that these vaccines are developed in global cooperation. Just because we call it the Oxford vaccine doesn't mean it was only developed in Oxford.

    At the moment I would say the limiting factor is vaccine availability, I’m trained as a vaccinator and have had a few shifts but not everything I have volunteered for has been taken up. My understanding is this is because they haven’t had enough vaccines yet to ramp up the number of vaccine pods running.

    I don’t think that’s because there are any issues around distribution, just that it takes a bit of time for these vaccines to roll off the production line.
