Normally, aside from a sore arm I don't get side effects. Saturday at 4pm I had my flu jab. All good until 4am when I woke up feeling fluey. Aching all over, shivers and sweats. Slight bunged up feeling. Paracetamol got me through the night, and most of Sunday. By 4pm I was almost back to "normal".

This time, MrsW had no side effects.

Tomorrow we get our covid shots.

Mine are booked for the 30th. Last year I just felt a bit flu-ish the day following. A good excuse to lie on the sofa and drink medicinal whisky. I've still not caught Covid yet, touch wood.

I got the new CV booster last week.

Moderna? 50% Pfizzer and 50% against Omicron apparently.
Bit pinchy for a day then fine. No after effects so far.

The latest Moderna Covid vaccine Spikevax bivalent Omicron had marginally more side effects for me than previous Phizer ones, really just a day of joint aches and tiredness.

In SE London the seasonal booster jab against Covid 19 is only Moderna.

The GP practice nurse informed me that there are 2 different vaccines being used;

The "standard" which was developed by Moderna primarily to combat the alpa, delta and other early strains

The "modified" , also know as the "Spike" vaccine , is a much newer bivalent version which is targeted more towards the Omicron variants.

If you get the former I would not anticipate any adverse reaction as most of us have already have some immunity to the earlier Covid strains. If you get the latter then there is a higher possibility of an adverse reaction but the chances should still be quite low. I received a dose of an early version of this last May as part of a clinical trial at Guys and St Thomas and did react markedly . I got all the Covid 19 symptoms but kept testing negative. It took me a few weeks before I was back to "normal".

I have absolutely no reaction to 'flu jabs

Had the flu & spikevax. Spikevax no issue. The flu gave a little sore arm but nothing serious.
