    See the quote box for the edited highlights! :D I can make light of it now but it was far from pleasant.

    Bloody hell - a horror story! :( I can see why you're apprehensive about the second.

    I had 3 days of feeling rough with the first jab but had no problems with the second one

    @Zou Hope things work out the same for you and that you have no ill effects from your second dose.

    So far so good, nothing untoward to report. :)

    I, of course, had no problems with the first and was knackered for 24 hours after the second. But I am well known for that sort of thing. ;)

    Just as well I didn't have the vaccine. my very good friend who is on the staff of a nearby Care Home (unaffected so far) reacted badly after her second jab.
    Her BP plummeted and what did they do? Panic and run around. What did they give her? Nothing. They just waited to see what would happen. Fortunately after some time, luckily she started to recover enough to go home. It could have ended so much more badly.

    They are probably inculcated with the mantra - "Do not rescuscitate".

    You could be right. My GP wasn't much better at first, but in the end (probably prompted by the trainee) he jabbed me with adrenaline.

    Do you have one of those [epi] pen things? If not might be a good idea to get one.

    With me it's drugs not food. That's why I don't go on any new ones.

    Epinephrine is the stuff that is normally used in an epipen. It is exactly the same drug as adrenaline, so it would not be new to you.
    If one of the vaccines is eventually deemed to be ok for you then it might be sensible to make sure that adrenaline is available.

    I will ask. I want to know what action they would take. I was astonished at the lack of care for my friend. Quite disgusting.

    I was not kidding when I suggested a culture of non intervention in the case of medical emergencies.

    Might apply to me, but not her. She's not 50 yet.

    Accepted. Just disappointed to see you perpetuating Scots stereotypes.

    No way. The Scotts are generous. Try a Yorkshireman from Leeds, the centre of Northern Finance.
