Hmmmmm. I was invited to book my booster last week, and was told not to schedule it within seven days of receiving any other jab. As I had the flu shot last Saturday (6th), I have deferred the booster as advised.

Interesting, I have a few friends who have had them done at the same time. My wife is booked for a Flu jab at the GP on 27th November followed by a booster at a centre 10 miles away about an hour later, just the way it happened. Nobody has mentioned needing time between the jabs.

Had my booster yesterday afternoon at Boots. Didn't feel a thing. A bit of tenderness around the jab site by the time I went to bed. Slept like a log. Virtually no bad bad feelings by the time I got up. No red mark or bruising. No side effects at all. Essentially just the same as the first 2 shots. My local chemist did the flu jab some weeks ago. No side effects there either as with previous flu jabs. Looks like I'm just lucky. I'm 82.

Hi, Yes, I think it's just that, Luck. I've never had any reactions (so far) to any injections.

It would be preferred if this topic is kept to actual facts, of member's and their acquaintance's experience of the topic in hand.

If you wish to dissuade people from the uptake of the vaccine, you are quite welcome to lobby your MP. But not on here either.

Please define "facts"

I think it's quite self-explanatory? Facts of their experience (and of course subsequent effects having had the vaccine and/or booster).

i.e. NOT some propaganda from the internet. There's quite enough of that on other sites, without bringing it here. If members wish to search it on the internet or "social media" pages, they are quite capable.

This topic was started as an account of actual experiences, not hearsay, etc.. Further posts as such will be removed, end of.

I was simply posting facts as to why I have not, and will not, have any so called "jab".
None of it was propaganda.
It turned into a discussion with others.
Simply my experiences as to my decision making.

I've had 2 Astra and the Pfizer booster plus the flu jab, so quadruple jabbed. Felt vaguely fluey after the Pfizer jab but took some lemsip and OK. Arm in each instance a little tender, but I am a complete woose about needles so probably just my imagination.

Attended yesterday evening, to be given the Pfizer booster, as well as the flu jab. I hadn't checked the actual date of second AstraZeneca but was informed it was 15 May, thus bang on the 6 month interval!

I opted for both jabs in the same arm and do have a little discomfort, but very happy to now have the added protection.

Had my booster yesterday at a local TA Barracks, very organised in a typical Army fashion. I had the Moderna jab (previous two were AZ), no real side effects other than a slightly bruised feeling at the injection site. (I had already had the Flu jab at a local pharmacy a week ago).

You don't, as far as I am aware. What you need is distance - 1cm as I recall (and since it was different nurses giving my wife her booster and her flu jabs, and the flu jab nurse couldn't absolutely definitively guarantee the booster jab point, she ended up with one in each arm).

I got a text from my GP Practice today inviting me to book my Booster (for those @ 6mths after their 2nd). As my 2nd shot was in June, I'm not due until 5th Dec, I think? I'll call to get it booked in the next week or so, no hurry given the practice's previous efficiency.

I had my second (AZ) jab on the 16th June.

I was invited to get a flu jab on the 8th but I had arranged to be in Altrincham that day, so I rearranged for yesterday, the 17th. On attending, I was informed that as I was 5 months and a day since my 2nd jab, I could have my CV-19 booster as well if I wished.

Today I have two slightly sore arms, but no other affects as yet.

Seems not. When I was getting the booster they asked if I wanted flu as well but I had already had it. Others who were accepting it were asked if they wanted both in the same arm or in different arms.

Is it actually done at you GP surgery? They don't do it around my way and refer you to the website to book it. Generally you need to book a week or two ahead unless you are lucky with a closer appointment being available, particularly if you want a very local one.

The management and I had our boosters Saturday just gone, booster was Pfizer whereas our first two were AZ.

No issues other than a numb arm for a day or so.

Flu jabs booked for this coming Saturday.

We were due to qualify for the booster about two weeks ago but we were on holiday. SWMBO called the vaccination hotline before we went to ask if we could get an early booster before travelling. Told that we had to wait for the invitation.
Suddenly, while we are away, everything changes and it seems boosters are being offered ahead of the six-month deadline.
So we get our invitation letters, and the earliest they can book us for...December 12th....SEVEN months after our second doses.

JCVI "advises that the booster vaccine dose is offered no earlier than six months after completion of the primary vaccine course" while Dr Mary Ramsay, head of immunisation at the UKHSA, said: "it is critical that you come forward for your booster as soon as you become eligible "

Well that's clear, then.
