If you got the AZ one then I'd say there's at least good hope for your second one. Mine were both AZ and that first jab was horrendous to the point I've been dreading my second, but the second one I just had a nice lie-in, took a couple of ibuprofen and felt fine since.

Just been in the smaller of the two Tesco in Lincoln. Things were pretty much in stock apart from loo roll and pet food. Did see one guy at the till getting told by the checkout girl that he couldn't

I'll eventually work through all the messages but I'm safe. Thanks folks. I'm still an absolute mess but safe all the same.

Got a text from the local surgery offering the vaccines to any over 18s, so sent my eldest two down today (even writing that makes me feel old AF). They also both took their boyfriend/girlfriend down there. What a lovely date.

No chance I'm buying them a takeaway. Freeloading bastards.

I assume that if you don't turn up or rebook a second appointment the NHS would get in touch, but I have no idea. I tried emailing them yesterday, so if they come back with anything helpful I'll let you know.

 

I don't know about them contacting you for not turning up to a booking, but having booked my second jab off my own steam through the booking system I did get a text today inviting me to book my second jab. So I've booked that one as it's a closer location and sooner, but now need to separately cancel the other booking.

I saw it had an option for 'don't book', which if you directed that it gave you a list of options to choose from why you didn't want it, and one of them was "booked elsewhere".so it seems like they do know which systems do and don't talk to each other and when, so that's encouraging.

Got my Pfizer jab today - drove to Kenilworth and had it done, then had boba tea and a smash burger+chips as a treat. 

Boba Tea and a Smash burger. Was the thing you drove down there A Penny Farthing or motorized unicycle?

Me and the Wife had our 1st Pfizer jab yesterday and had a Takeaway Pizza afterwards

Round the In Laws for dinner tonight and my Father in Law has already ordered Takeaway Pizzas before we said we had some last night 

Seems Im well covered then

Haven't had much side effects, just a slight dead arm (felt like I'd been punched hard where the needle went in) from late last night which is wearing off now as i hit the 24 hr since the jab mark,

My arm is absolute agony today. I also have a headache, but I often have a headache, so I'm choosing to believe it is unrelated...

Had my First dose of Pfizer today. Bit sore where it went in (oh er) but otherwise fine. Had work after it so had to wait to go to McDonald’s, so i’ve gone big because of the delay

That’s a proper McDonalds that my mate would have, nicely done. Although one of the cheese burgers would be gone before he gets to the table as he has a “till burger” while he waits for the rest to be made

Turns out one of the longer lasting symptoms I've had is not being able to smell farts or shit. My smell is back (I thought) entirely now but since having Covid I can't smell the dog's shit when I'm cleaning the garden which is great for me, really happy with that. I thought also that recently none of my farts have smelt of anything so I've been sneakily cracking them off left and right. Living the high life.
Yesterday my Brother and Wife were sat near me and I let one go and they recoiled in disgust at the smell, but I couldn't smell it still. Turns out they've probably stank this entire time and it's just me that can't smell them rather than them being odourless.

On the other hand, all shit and farts now smell spicy to my Wife, which is bizarre.

Just turned up for my first vaccination and all the signs for the center are covered in anti lockdown and anti vaccine graffiti which they clearly stated cleaning before deciding it's quicker to "pass cook bartridge" it

Sorry to be deathly dull but anyone with up to date knowledge about travel help me out? I’ve been trying to find covid rules for Belgium based on driving through between France and Germany in August (I understand rules change 1st July) but going through the websites there seems to be contradiction between “you don’t need a test or passenger info form if you’re here less than 48 hours” and “if you’re coming from the UK you need to quarantine for 7 days.” I did find a number from the Corona site (.be suffix) for dialling from outside Belgium but the options were press 1 for Dutch and 2 for French.

Anyone know anything, even a good phone number to call?
