Ok so that was painless. First shot done. Booked in for second in 12 weeks.  See how the next few days go. 

You must have got the 5P chip not the 5G one  

If I could ran 9km @ 4.55 it would be a bloody miracle.

If the efficacy rate is 50% as they say then you might want to find something else just in case...

You might be thinking of Sinovac. As above, Sinopharm is around 80. I've seen other articles with more in depth stats and the one I quite like was that it's been 100% effective against hospitalizations. Still not the greatest but no other option at the time.

So 12 hours later I would probably describe how I feel as how you feel when a cold/flu is coming on. 
Started feeling tired about 6pm then started to feel a bit of a chill so rugged up took a Panadol and it’s a lot better. 
Nothing bad just a little uncomfortable.

Fascinating.  I honestly never had an issue. My mum got it Friday and she’s 76. She’s been fine too.

Well that was a hell of a night. Had fever and chills, needed to sleep in trakkies and a jumper and was still struggling. 

This morning was feeling a bit better till I got in the shower, the heat nearly made me pass out. Had to get out of the shower and lie on the cold floor for a while. Wasn't sure if I was going to pass out or throw up. While I was there my hands were "buzzing" which was pretty freaky. 

I'm at work but don't think Ill last long though.

If it's menopause for women, it must be womenopause for men!

Not covid related, but after going to see some bands Saturday night I've developed one hell of a cold!  Knocking me for 6 at the moment.  Had nothing all last year.  Aren't they saying when people get sick this year it's hitting hard because of last year's distancing, we haven't gotten all the viral stuff into our system we usually get which toughens our immune system up?

So you might miss a day’s training which is going to have a material negative impact on your result?  But you’ll likely have a significant resistance against a COVID-19 infection as compensation.

I had the flu shot 3 weeks ago! 

It feels like its on the improve, where if it was flu I assume after just 24 hours Id be getting worse not better.

What would be interesting, but obviously hard to compile, is how the reaction to the vaccination correlates to infection response.

We already know that when infected some people have mild symptoms, while other go on to needing ICU - or worse - and it would be interesting to know if a strong response to the vaccine means you were a candidate for a strong response to infection.

Yeah would be interesting. I also read today that they think people who already had contracted covid has a worse response to the vaccine. Now I never got tested but January 2020 as covid was just becoming a thing I contracted a real nasty flu from staying at a rellos place in Qld , they had another friend staying there as well and he was really unwell with the flu, turned out he worked at the international airport in Sydney, dealing mainly with Asian passengers. So could be I had already got it before it really kicked off. Who knows. 
Anyway feeling a lot better now just a dull headache remaining. As uncomfortable as the last 24 hours has been I’m still glad I got the shot.  Taking us all that one step closer.

Or even reaction when the vaccination is given shortly after a flu shot or other vaccination.  Would a strong response mean that your body hadnt sufficiently recovered from the first jab before you stressed it out again.

Bit similar to you - and same response as three of the guys I work with. Each of us injected late am with AZ, feel good all day, no issues or soreness in injection site until either very late in the day (or midnight when I got woken up feeling like an autopsy). 

Then - hot and cold sweats, no sleep, gobbling paracetamol, RHR up over 70 overnight. 24 hours later I started to come good after working from bed and looking up the LD50 for paracetamol. Would have to have taken 380+ tablets, I believe.  Still a little weak 48 hours later but all good after that. 

Two are coaches, one is an osteo. We're guessing we've all had some exposure - whether athletes, clients, or phs My wife had AZ and no  effects at all on first shot but was flat for a week after the second one, my father and parents in law have both had their first one with no effects - father in Oz, PILs in Sweden. I think exposure comes into it - SGA cases in Australia, then rural Sweden where social distancing is a thing before you even factor in self-isolation. Gosta did manage to get hunting season in though!

As Roxii says, worth doing it as it brings everyone closer to some form of normality. I bloody want to get back to Oz to see my family. Watching stage 3 cancer and chemo through a phone screen is ****ed. Not that it would be better to be there, but we'd be there.

Anyway just a dull headache today and a tender spot on my arm, but my phone reception is much better.   :lol:

Hong Kong paying people about $20 aud for getting the vaccine.  

Here in Mongolia they are paying people about $20 for each shot. The average annual wage here would be less than $10,000.

Over 60% of the population has had their first jab.

Well, we rang our GP and are both up for our first AstraZeneca next Wed !  Thought it would take much longer to get vaccinated out here in the 'bush'.

Our youngest is up for her first Pfizer today as part of the Oly team & staff program.

Second Pfizer yesterday. Appears IN am in the 20% who have some 'blah' symptoms after the second one. Stonking headache during he night, chills and sweats all night. Nausea. Still feeling cruddy today. Wasn't keen once I was eating breakfast but am starving now. Hopefully it doesn't last long. Feel shite.

Peter, where did you get your jab? State run centre or GP immunization hub? I went to the later a couple of weeks ago for my first AZ jab and received nothing following up how I am.

We had our first A-Z two weeks ago at 2.30pm.

I woke up at midnight with chills, aches & pains, headache.  Felt crap till about 4pm.  My wife had similar but much milder.

On Sunday I swam my fastest swim set in about 8mths, took 15secs off my 400m time and held all my 100s at fast times.

Have told our daughter at the AOC to get the team on the A-Z train ASAP as it is performance enhancing.

Victoria has 4,500,000 over the age of 18 years old in total to vaccinate. 
 

hopefully this is our last lockdown if people keep stepping up. 
 

Hawaii using the number of 70% to stop restrictions. 
 

so just over 3 million needed to have vaccine using rough guesses.

I had my first AZ shot last month - basically as soon as the local COVAX clinic opened.

I'm starting to wonder if I'm a placebo control test subject - absolutely no reaction what-so-ever - not even a noticeably sore arm - I've hurt it more bumping into a doorway at home.

My sister on the other hand, was spewing her guts up the entire day following, and then it magically went away the 2nd day after.

Exactly the same . I was in bed same evening waiting for the side effects, but nothing

Mate I was the same too. Nothing. It could be nothing given we are all clearly elite athletes.

On Friday I reached 14 days post second vaccination (Sinopharm). This means that I can travel and enter "restricted" locations like hotels, gyms, bars, night clubs, some restaurants etc. To enter I have to show my QR code which they scan.

There is still a lot of Covid in Ulaanbaatar. While I would like to go the gym I am avoiding any risky locations.

I am in my hotel room waiting for a PCR test. If I pass I will be able to fly to Australia on Monday.
