My mum had Pfizer back in January and had no side effects. Her two siblings (also in their 80s) were also fine.Maybe people who had no side-effects shall not bother posting here, they might be the great majority, who knows?
Does anyone have recent experience of other inoculations for influenza and the like, what about side-effects after?
I think we can assume that it was made in good faith, perhaps to reassure OP that they weren't the only one with side-effects. And like others have mentioned, jabs of this kind always have some side effects when the immune system fights against it.
I (age 70) had AZ last Saturday, alright to begin with but not felt great for a couple of days, listless. Last week I spoke to a woman who had Covid in January; if that is what it is like two months later, I will put up with listless. She looked and sounded awful!
No, why would there be? I would think most people on here can make their own minds up. I'd rather know about possible side effects (which by the way you are told about before the jab) than be surprised.
