    I’ve heard of several people who have been poorly after the Moderna one. My sister was ill and it made her very weepy apparently.

    I won't be due a booster until end of January. Had AZ before so presume next week be Pfizer/Moderna.

    Well I go for my booster tomorrow.

    I have heard that if you had AstraZeneca before you can ask for that again as your booster, I would much prefer to have the same "brand" for my booster, I don't want the Moderna one.

    I shall be refusing the flu jab.

    I thought if you had AZ it had to be one of the others. Perhaps I’m mistaken though.

    How come you are refusing the flu jab?

    Don't know if I have posted this before on a Covid thread and as I am sitting happilly outside a half bottle of Cava I dont care enough to check.
    Jabs 1 and two were phizer.
    Booster was Moderna. 12 hours after booster felt uncomfortable enough to get up and take 2 Codis. Other than a multi colour circle round the jab point and some localised pain no other noticeable reaction. Localised pain subsided quickly. Still a bit bruised looking.
    No lollipop for any of them.:(

    With the Moderna booster I had arm ache for 3 days, enough to want to take paracetamol. It was like being kicked. Not a thing in the other arm that had the flu jab.

    Just checked and in Scotland the official word is all boosters are Pfizer/Moderna; AZ only offered if personal medical reasons exist for not having one of the others.

    Looking at the NHS site for England, it is the same, AZ only given if you can’t have the others.

    Our local BBC TV news this evening was all about Prince Charles opening the swanky new AZ research centre on the Cambridge Bio-Sciences campus. Lots of new AI & Virtual Reality toys etc. able to assist in cutting edge research - we were told...
    (Back in 1934 during the depression, my recently made redundant father joined ICI Dyestuffs division at Blackley, Manchester, and this was the start of ICI's pharmaceutical division, which morphed into AZ. )

    I had AZ for the first and second, and then Moderna for the booster. Mrs M had her jabs a few days before mine, AZ and then Pfizer for the booster (all at the same centres as me). I presume it’s all down to what is available at the time rather than any clinical reason?

    Mine were all Pzifer , first one bit of a sore arm, second one nothing
    Booster I felt permanently tired for several weeks and have had 2 colds since then. Before anyone says it doesn't work against colds etc I know but it's unheard of for me to get 2 colds within 3 weeks of each other

    I refer you to your damp/cold issues at home, as being more likely a connection than the vaccination.

    As Zou mentioned, contact Shelter, but you'll probably find your council will also have a department for it too. Might be worth a call to them. A boiler being out of service for this long is totally unacceptable.

    If you have mould you may end up with sort of fungal infection, which if got to your lungs would be very nasty

    First, and last time, I had the flu jab I was as sick as a dog.

    I have never had the flu jab again since.
