    New Bivalent Covid Vaccine

    Hi all,

    I’m just wondering if anyone has had the new Bivalent Covid jab yet and, if you did, did you get your flu jab at the same time?

    Any bad side effects from one, both or either?

    My GP contacted me yesterday with an appointment in two weeks’ time to get both jabs.

    Thanks xx

          Got mine last Thursday at a local vaccination centre after receiving invitation to book previous day as did my wife. Only after effect was slightly sore arm at point of injection for a couple of days.

          Local GP practices have outsourced flu jab. As before booked in in October for drive by jab in Cathedral car park. Window down both sides for jab and go😀

              Ellie update on covid jab ! Yesterday I had the covid booster one arm and flu other arm. However it wasn't the new Bivalent vaccine. I had Moderna. The Dr who did mine said they have made the vaccines stronger this time and more people are feeling flu like symptoms for up to 48 hours. Recommended paracetamol every 4 hours for a 48 hour period. Mine was administered at noon and at 3am last night the shivers teeth chattering and sweats began! Gone now. Just feel shattered. Keeping up the paracetamol. Got to say though the arm with the covid jab is very tender and hurt to lie on. All the best for everyone else who is next xx

                  denise my local gp surgery sent me a text with a link to book whichever date and time I wanted at our local town hall. Very well run. I was the only one there under 85 by the looks of it though! Vaccine also given me iffy tummy! X

                    I got a message to say they are coming out to do both for Chris tomorrow. However he comes home from his week at the hospice plus he has a neurology appointment.
                    And he hasn't been doing too well lately, we'll see what happens.

                      Music man's wife sorry to hear that Chris hasn't been too well lately. Hope the neurology appointment goes well and there's something they can do to help. Will they give you the jab as well as his carer?

                      Zante hope the effects of the jab wear off soon.

                      My dad had his yesterday, so far just a sore arm.

                        Claireflo it seems to really vary as to if someone has any ill effects because a few on our road had it yesterday and 2 are in their 90s and said this morning they wouldn't have known they had the vaccine! I have gone back now to feeling all shivery and achy. Not happy but didn't want covid or flu badly neither! I hope your dad continues to feel alright and would have thought he would have felt rough by now x

                          We had our pneumonia jabs in the spring. I asked if I could have a shingles jab as I have had 2 bouts of shingles. No because I have to be over 75!! I asked on the hospital ward if Stephen could have his covid and flu jab before he goes to the care home but so far nothing. We both had our jabs at home in the spring but no idea what the plan is this time and it takes so long trying to get through to GP. 🙄

                            denise have just had a look at the gov.uk website and it says you can have a shingles vaccine when you turn 70 on nhs. My mum was offered one also and she is 74, but she declined it.

                              Thanks Zante and hope you're better soon.

                              Hope you can get yours and Stephens sorted Denise. My nan is in a care home and they organise a day when they all get done (although nan missed hers as she was in hospital).
