    First, the real pricks are easy to spot because they don't wear a mask.

    My first and second shot put me down for a day. But I feel great now.

    it turns out that those that already have gone through the infection have a reaction to the vaccination.
    pfizer immediately picked up the news, claiming that this will enhance the protection the vaccination gives.
    it might even render the second jab obsolete, according to pfizer.

    isn't it wonderful how the science of vaccination works?
    first they find out by accident that two jabs in stead of one works better.
    then they find out by accident that 12 weeks in stead of 4 weeks in between them works better.
    then they find out by accident that two jabs by two different manufacturers work better.
    now they find out by accident that one jab might be enough for some.

    it really is amazing what they could have found out if the phase three research would have been done.
    maybe they would have also found out that the vaccine has some rather nasty side effects that occur after a year or so.

    stop children, what's that sound, everybody look whats going down......

    I had mine three weeks ago. All very slick, but then I had to sit still, be quiet and behave myself for FIFTEEN MINUTES! That was the tough bit. Well, that and the sore arm I couldn't sleep on that night. Otherwise, just a nice feeling that it's a step in the right direction.

    Serious question Limy - I thought the UK was going to first-doses-first and would hold off on second shots until everybody (or everybody required, or accepting, or whatever) got at least one? I read somewhere they were cancelling appointments for *2nd* shots. Does this vary with patient age, or district, or something? Or is the press just confused again?

    Lots of press confusion (as alway) but as I understand it, they extended it to 3 months between shots, .......which from what I could make out was as far as they could stretch it, ...BUT!! it was done to get as many 1st shots in as they could because even the 1st dose gives SOME immunity.

    FWIW mainly due to my age and not my medical condition, I was placed in the 2nd ''most vulnerable'' group, - hence my wait until the other day for my 1st shot.

    For what it's worth, there are good arguments that the 1st shot gives a *lot* of protection - but it takes from 15 to 28 days to come into its own.

    Actually did one of those back in college
    Took a long time to grow the bacteria we were working with in standard media
    But it would grow like a weed in the urea enriched media, went to the Prof told him that
    Went humm try changing ph to more acidic, sure enough at an acidic ph it would grow like a weed
    That little aha made it much faster for some of the stuff others in the were working on for their
    Gad thesis projects.
    More stuff in biology is from hmm that’s strange wonder why that happens then anything else.

    Thanks for a useful link, Demon. It's good to be able to refer to an authoritative source of information, and I find the results of their analysis comforting. Of course, if I were a news reporter I would have to sign off with a portentous question, but I'm not so I won't.
