Yesterday I had my vaccination at Minehead Hospital. Apart from the 4 freezing minutes waiting outside in the queue to go in, the experience was as everyone else described, excellent. However, I had driven there on my own and although I had the Oxford vaccine, so no statutory wait,  I was strongly advised not to drive for 15 minutes. I sat in the car listening to the radio.
I have had a very mild side effect that occurred about 12 hours later. At about  4am I experienced the feverish Flu symptom of shakes while feeling hot. This lasted about 2 hours. This morning I am fine though slightly aware my body has been in a battle. This is more comforting than worrying for me as I have assumed my antibodies were alert. Certainly nothing to worry about.
