Editor's comment: Here's how I felt after having the Oxford Covid-19 jab

Ross Crawford 13th Mar, 2021

THERE’s been quite a bit of negative publicity on the Astrazenica /Oxford Covid jab, not least from our continental cousins.

I had my (Astrazenica) jab at Artrix on Monday and, concerned about any possible side effects, had beforehand taken the dog for a good walk, tidied the house and stocked the larder.

The jab itself was something of an anti-climax, and before I knew it I was waiting my allotted 15 minutes before heading home.

Yet something had to be wrong. I felt okay, no shivers, no aches, no pains.

Miraculous – there had been nothing to fear at all.
