So, an entire week after my first jab I've been struck down with the feeling like absolute shite. I couldn't even get out of bed yesterday. Quite a bit better today.

think it completely depends on what the 'main event' of your McDs is. If your having nuggets as the main bit, then yes, 20, of course. If nuggets is a side, then 6 is fine if the burger yiu are having is one of their larger offerings - say, a Double Quarter pounder

Couldn't disagree more, I don't care what the burger offering is I'm still going for 20 on the side.  I used to go there for lunch and have 20 to eat on the drive back to the office, with everything else being "lunch".

I guess this explains me being a big ol' fatty boom boom.

No shaming here, I'm also a bunter. Maybe I've been getting it wrong all these years. I'm intrigued by your ideas and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

My second AZ jab isn’t until late July, but a place in Bury St Edmunds announced they were offering those with just one jab to come and get their second earlier. So I’m booked in at 8:20 in the morning but need to get back for work, so a second takeaway might be out of the question.

I get totally suckered in by the pricing. It makes economic sense to me to go for the 20 even though some will be cold by the time I eat them. 

Maccies chicken nuggets are even tastier than usual after being heated up in the oven for 10-15 minutes. They go really crispy on the outside but the inside stays just as delicious as if you'd only just bought them. Also can be used as a "booster" side effect neutraliser just to stave off any minor unpleasant reactions the day after the jab.

Got a text to offer my 2nd jab earlier but I'd already strategically booked it slap-bang in the middle of a Saturday, with the sunday off to potentially recover. I look forward to nursing both my health and a 20 nugget sharebox for one.

Thanks, Dr Luvva. I’ll be sure to stick to this prescription on Saturday when I have my second dose.

We have very different work ethics - I went on the basis that if I was going to be ill and have to recover, I wasn't doing it on my own time.

I cancelled my second jab and now have one booked in a few weeks earlier than originally planned. Win.

I work retail so booking it during a Saturday means I get the guaranteed weekend off with my wife.

In true American fashion, the state of Massachusetts are giving away 5 prizes of a million dollars to people who are vaccinated. Nothing will motivate the anti vaxxers like sweet government coin.

Is there a set timeframe now between first and second? Seemed they were saying they were bringing it forward from 12 weeks to 8 weeks, is that the case or can you do it whenever now? I’m about two weeks away from the 8 week timeframe but no text yet. Wondering if I should phone the helpline or just wait, or if I can walk in somewhere.

If you've had your first you should be able to book your second at any time without waiting for a text. A lot of people I know who were on 12 weeks waiting cancelled and re-booked and got it closer to 8 weeks.
