You won't get a choice on which one you'll get because it will depends on what one the GP or vaccine hub will be provided with at the time of you eventually getting it done

Only side effects really is maybe a bit sore in arm where it is injected for about 24 - 48 hours as no evidence showing any other ones as far as I'm aware of !!!

I don't think you get a choice but I know multiple people who've had the Oxford and Pfizer ones and the only side effects they had (there's about 8 of them) was a sore arm and a bit of tiredness. Nothing to worry about

That is good to knwo. It is for a relative and they are reluctant to take it. I kinda of wanted to know some hard facts that might help and even though a choice is not given it is good to know these things.

Essentially, the intended outcome is the same regardless of what vaccine variant you have; improved immunity against SARS-CoV-2.

From my own experience and that of my colleagues, the main symptom with Pfizer was a slightly sore arm (although a couple also had raised lymph nodes and felt a bit unwell) for approx 24hrs.
From what I've heard from others who've had the AstraZeneca jab, they've felt a bit shivery and had flu-like symptoms the day after, but again, not lasting much more than 24hrs.

Personally, the trade-off of a little bit of discomfort for a huge improvement in covid immunity was a no-brainer for me!

You can find the official information for the two jabs currently being administered in the UK here, though:
Pfizer/BioNTech: https://www.gov.uk/government/public...vid-19-vaccine
AstraZeneca: https://www.gov.uk/government/public...ne-astrazeneca

Hope this helps!

I had AstraZeneca in late January as I'm shielding/CEV. I got some strange side effects (tongue numbness, minor facial swelling, and all the other regular side effects, sore arm, bad headache, nausea, etc.), but that's expected due to a condition I have - I am under the care of an allergist anyway. Most people don't get a choice. My dad went to the same place as me and had Pfizer, he had no side effects whatsoever.

In all likelihood your relative will be fine with whatever vaccine they get particularly if they normally are fine with vaccines.

Everyone will react differently with it if having any side effects.
The ones you had don't mean next person will have same ones.
And you said your dad was fine with it .
They will only give what is supplied to them.

I never said they would have the same side effects? I was just stating my experience, I'm still getting the second dose. I'm not put off. My reaction to the vaccine is not common at all, mainly because my condition is not common - therefore I am an outlier, exactly why I mentioned I am under the care of an allergist (specifically under a tertiary care highly specialist hospital for this specific condition that impacts my reactions to things like vaccines). I know my dad was fine with it? Like I mentioned his experience to show that everyone deals with this differently, the vast majority of people will just have a sore arm and be done with it.

I'm not sure what you gleaned from my comment but you seem to have misinterpreted what I said.

Ok you stated your experience from it because of your health conditions which I understand is worrying for you but you are getting the care you needing from hospital for it as obviously your condition triggered a reaction that needed treatment.

Like I said to about your dad shown how one person react from another one okay,
I hope that when you get your second dose you don't react the same way.

If you think I said it wrongly to you then fine as I do apologies if I put it over wrong to you.
