covid vaccine

Covid vaccination at 11:54 this morning, so up just after 7 to be showered and sensible in plenty of time!

A rather chilly walk up to the GP surgery – I’d decided not to wear a long-sleeved T-shirt or a heavy jumper, so that I wouldn’t have to faff about for them to get to my upper arm. Surprisingly, I didn’t feel the actual injection, and as a result didn’t go light-headed or otherwise feel wobbly! It was, fittingly, the “Oxford” vaccine.

However, by mid-afternoon I was starting to feel shivery, and run a slight temperature. A hot bath and early bed will be called for! Hopefully, it won’t get worse – the side-effects of this vaccine can apparently be pretty nasty.
