I got my first jab Friday morning (AZ)
felt fine all day, sort of tired and meh towards evening so went to bed hoping for a good nights sleep
started shivering, got extra blanket, kept shivering and shaking and feeling rotten for ages, took temp in the morning and had little fever, took paracetamols
then I found 4 voicemails from my gp, wanting to talk about the jab but not saying why, and as it was sat. no way of calling back until tues
then I saw news that they decided to pause jabbing with AZ again and thought probably that's it
then someone pointed me to the news that 150 ppl from my surgery had been given a double dose on Friday ....
yeah so I think that's why she called
luckily I started to feel better as the day went on and I'm fine now
apparently a double dose does no harm (and no good) but still pretty sloppy, whoops
still very happy and grateful to have had the first jab!

:D This made me lol, but only because I know you are ok, Miki.

I don’t understand how the double dose even happened? I assume the doses in the vials are metered, so why is there twice the amount available to inject? It just seems really odd. I’m super glad you had no additional side affects and are now rested.

The vials contain about 5 doses, I believe.


T\here was a thing a while back about being able to sometimes squeeze a 6th dose out of it.

I don't know exactly how this is being distributed, but after helping my wife revise whilst she was studying to be a nurse, a lot of it was making up the right dose based on certain concentrations of the base ingredients and the amount the patient needed.

Also AFAIK the people giving out these doses are not always medical staff, but people who have had some intensive training on how to administer this specific vaccine. So I can see how those things might compound to create an error. (Like I said I don't know the particulars here, and especially in Netherlands, so that could all be waffle - probably is)

Glad you're well Miki

I had absolutely no idea that the vials contained anything other than one dose. I am really surprised by that, though I don’t know why. It must cut down on a massive amount of materials waste, but I guess leaves more margin for error.

It’s 8 or 10 for the AZ vaccine.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... strazeneca

It’s only .5ml per dose so it wouldn’t be practical to do individual measures as you’d need more packaging (which is in huge demand) and have to make them all slightly generous measures to ensure nobody gets too little. If you did 10x0.6 you’ve used 6ml for 10 doses as you waste the extra. Put that all in a larger bottle and you can give an extra dose quite easily.

I would imagine that most vaccines which are given on a kind of 'here and there' basis are probably in single (or just over) single doses in one vial, but as this vaccine is intended to get to all the millions (and millions) ASAP the bulking up makes a lot of sense logistically, as there are essentially queues of folk waiting.

Vaccination drive out here has begun but it doesn't need to be as fast as other places that got hit a lot harder.

Feeling okay today, felt fucking horrible yesterday, though. Second Pfizer shot is a doozy.

Was if flu symptoms or general shittyness? Glad you're feeling better today.

Just a bit like a hangover really but with added aching limbs and weird tiredness, like all day long if I sat down and put my feet up I'd just be out like a light.

someone had pre-loaded a bunch of syringes with vaccine, I guess so the person injecting didn't have to fiddle about doing that while a person was sitting there (times 4 dotted around the room)
the syringes were really long and skinny, apparently to be able to get the extra dose from the vial, I guess the ppl loading them made a mistake in reading the lines on the syringes

the yearly flu vaccine also comes in mutli dose vials, I've heard the staff talk about weather or not to open a new vial, checking how many people they were still expecting not wanting and open vial to go to waste
I guess they do it when expecting to jab many people, my fertility stuff and HepA and HepB and Tetanus etc all came in individual dose ampules

My arm ached a bit but the jab went into a different muscle. Apart from that I just had the same couple of hours of cotton-head.

I felt slightly odd on the evening of the jab, and most of the week after I felt more tired than normal, but nothing major at all.

Just got me Pfizer and felt none the wiser. Pretty smooth operation going down here in Splott, Cardiff. Didn't really feel it either which is good as I've always disliked looking at needles in movies. Chap who administered it was nice and had some admirable distracting patter while he worked his magic. Very slight arm ache and mild pins-and-needles at points but so far so good. I'm anticipating the second one will lay me low a bit though! Glad everyone's seems to be going okay here, though blimey - two doses Miki? That didn't sound like fun but glad you're fine now with the minty-goodness health-feels flowing through you. x
