The devil is in the detail. What test method and it's sensitivity and specificity are crucial. Are you carrying Covid 19 or a different coronavirus? If Covid 19 was it isolated and typed to it's variant and was it taken as a test before or after your vaccine dose (and what vaccine type). And finally are they planning to retest to see if you're a persistant carrier or not...
(It's even theoretically possible to carry a modified live vaccine virus and vaccinate others..)

I finally got my jab a few days ago - total chaos at the vax centre and took a 3.5 hr round trip in all to get the 20miles there and back)

Had my first one on 3/2/21. Local health centre rang me a couple of days before and appointment was 3.20 pm. Arrived at 3.15 and had to wait a couple of minutes before being sent to one of the consulting rooms. Was asked a series of questions pertaining to allergies and had I been a "Test Monkey?" Quick jab and handed a sheet of info and the "First jab" card. Asked if i could sit i the car for 15mins instead of the plague pit (waiting room) which they OK'd and sat back in car at 3.30. Felt OK and went home. Following day felt as though I'd been beaten up but day after that, fine.

Regards Ian.

the New Zealand quarantine at the border shows that 28 out of 162 positive tests since Jan 1st this year were deemed historic and non-infectious - ie their test is v sensitive and nearly 1 in 5 positive tests were actually of old infections - this ratio seems from their statistics to be increasing as returning kiwis are more likely to have had covid in the previous year

Quite high percentage adverse reactions to this stuff (must be the nanobots and tracking chips?). Personally I experienced bizarre coldness in hands and feet for a few hours after being dosed which I treated with copious gin and tonic to dilate my vessels followed by nodding off in a heated bedroom. Headache took 36hrs to almost clear

On the EDMES club night zoom call last night most had been jabbed or about to be. One had contracted C19 mildly when in hospital for something else. Couple of youngsters not yet done. No refusnicks. Mostly no side effects.
I got done last Saturday after phonecall from surgery 10 minutes walk away and today got the letter from NHS. wink

No effet for 24hrs, then very mild flu feelings, mild headache for 3 days bit like my allergy to paint fumes.

With Melbourne going back in lock down after cases detected I wonder what their planned reaction will be later on (6-9 months) when most people have been vaccinated.

Had mine last Saturday, 12:20 PM. Woke up at about 03:30, shoulder in agony.

Roundly cursed Astra Zeneca until I realised it was the left shoulder and I had the jab in the right.

Other than that it seemed to have no effect whatsoever.

Why do they ask ' What ethnicity do you consider yourself to be' ? Didn't realise we had a choice.

Tried 'Little Sweetie' but that didn't work so settled for White British.

Have the flu jab every year and they never seem to have any effect, adverse or otherwise.

Seem to remember having TABT, Yellow Fever and another ( Polio ? ) one afternoon in July '62 RAF Bridgnorth but felt nowt although some keeled over .. ??

That's because he posted a local link to his home machine.

The online links are:

AstraZenica PDF version

Pfizer BioNtech PDF

There is also an older post in similar vein.

Had my jab Thursday at local doctors surgery. Had to stand outside in a queue for 15 minutes before I got in though. Not told to wait for 15 mins afterwards so all good. Now waiting for 2nd jab appointment.

Wife and I had Astra Zeneca jabs around 5pm on Wednesday - during the night the wife got uncontrollable shivers and all the symptoms of flu, stayed in bed throughout Thursday. I fared a bit better, but felt tired and just sat and watched TV. Paracetamols helped. By about 9pm Thursday we both felt a lot better and were back to normal when we woke up on Friday.

Interestingly, one of the volunteers at the centre (we are near Blackpool) told us that people from as far afield as Manchester had been booking to have their jabs here and bringing a picnic lunch to eat in their cars whilst parked on the prom.

I bet you wouldn't get away with that in Wales.

I'll be taking dinner with me next time (in Wales). I arrived 10 mins early and was told to wait in car to be fetched... 15 mins after appt time i went looking and got told I was late! 30 mins queued standing to get to a room with chairs .. and another 30 mins before called for the jab. 12 booths .. not sure how many actually staffed but each taking ages per person. I was in an out for my jab in seconds - marched in with sleeve up and said 'stick it in'

If I'd had my way they'd have been stood by their cars with sleeves rolled and 2 clerks plus a nurse loading syringes I'd get through 30-40/hr solo without all the spare bodies they had running control. Tick-box Wales.

Interesting side effect for me was hands and feet became very very cold while rest of me was warm - Gin sorted that. Oh, and the regulation headache.

It;s suprising that all three vaccines have such high side effect incidences and more suprsing that the EUA sheets don't mention any preservatives or adjuvants (I bet there are) or type of tissue used for culture.
