Define 'expert', @gleneagles - I could, but I'd probably get banned.😁

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

Thanks @gleneagles 

I know what a vaccine is, training your body's immune system to a modified version of the real thing.

Come on my body get rid of it!

Alrealdy had a few beers, and will shortly get some more. Probably not what the doctor would order (as the saying says) though it helps me out at the moment.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

@jab1 

The word expert is misused these days perhaps it’s better to say someone with genuine knowledge of the subject.

There is a link in @billnotben post #218 to the BBC. That is who I had in mind.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

OK, @gleneagles I see your point, although I'm afraid I still think this is intentionally over-cautious so they don't get caught out. Sorry, but I'm afraid I'm a 'cup half-full' rather than a 'cup half-empty' type.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

Going on holiday abroad could incur a £5,000 fine, as part of government’s new ‘Wealthy people can still go on holiday abroad’ scheme.

Covid: £5,000 fine for people going on holiday abroad - BBC News

That should let Stanley Johnson off the hook then.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

Cor I am still feeling really weird today, not terrible.
It is scary though.

Getting it done is not the problem, it is the side effects.

Welcome to a modified version of COVID-19 body, it is hardly not going to complain is it? Mine certainly is.

Good luck to everyone else when they have theirs.

@jab1 

On the subject of experts raised earlier, just read this. 😉

'For every expert you come up with, someone else will raise you two with the opposite opinion'

Sounds about right.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

A little tip for you all, I've been putting basil and parsley on my cereal every morning for the past two months.

I now have herb immunity!

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

Yeah @PowerLee 

My second one is on the 3rd June. Strange going back to the area where I went to college to do my A Levels.

Still I know of a few pubs around there, so if they are open then I will pop into one of them for a beer (or knowing me three!).

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

Waking up to the news here in Wales to learn that the Moderna Covid vaccine will be rolled out here first.

We know from reading that it is stored at a much lower temperature but even so, does that mean those of us that have already had the Astra Oxford-Zeneca jab will now get this Moderna vaccine as the second dose?

The knives certainly seems to be out for the former over this blood clotting business.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

From the news just now (ITV 6 pm. 07/04/21) I understand that the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine won't be offered to people under 30.  Those of us who've had one dose of this vaccine, will be offered a second dose of the same.

There was some talk a month or so ago suggesting that having a different vaccine for the two doses might provide better immunity but I've heard no more about it since.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

I always liked the Woolies pick and mix but I wouldn't be too keen to have that happen to any vaccine I'm taking.

I mean I doubt there has been any formal testing of mixing vaccines. And doctors are always telling you to be careful in mixing various medicines.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

@billnotben I somehow doubt that it would be suggested that the vaccines could be mixed unless there had been trials to monitor the effects of doing so - that would totally counter-productive.

The 'mixing of various medicines' warning is, however, very valid, as you could potentially end up mixing say, a coagulant with an anti-coagulant, which could prove fatal - in the case of the CV19 vaccines, it is probably the 'carrier' components which could be a problem - the actual vaccine should be near-identical.
