My GF and I had AZ about 2 weeks ago.
No real side effects other than a sore arm

Marc, waiting 12 weeks for the second dose of AZ is actually a made up story by the Government.

This is said because their roll out is so slow and that they do not have sufficient dosage for all to do a quick turnover.

We live on the same property of a wife and partner who have both had the second dose four weeks apart and was told that even two weeks is OK.

She has now flown to the States and her partner will follow next week.

Actually, the science indicates a stronger immune response can be generated by waiting 12 weeks, rather than just 3-4 weeks - especially in older people, who are most at risk:

That report refers specifically to Pfizer, but similar studies have been reported for AZ as well.

Anyone wonder why people over 50 are told they can have the AZ vaccine, age discrimination at its worse, but not the Pfizer which is 95% effective against various COVID strains - I'm in WA so I will wait awhile to get the Pfizer in preference to the AZ, I should have the choice, I should also have the option to pay for the dearer vaccine if I wish- AZ $4 per dose Pfizer -$20. So no vaccine for me just yet

Same here. Can't get past the blood clotting issue.

I'll wait too. I know being hit by a car is more likely than a blood clot but then I don't cross a road until I have checked to see if it's safe to do so.

I had my first AZ recently. I’m of the view that the longer people wait to get a vaccination, the longer it will be before we all have general protection from Covid-19. I understand that younger people are more likely to have issues with AZ, hence they get Pfizer.

I had my 1st shot (AZ) last Wed morning. Within 15 mins I had a mild throbbing headache but nothing major. Took Panadol regularly. 12 hrs later though at night, I had the chills, fever, etc. 2nd day the headache got worse and body felt like the onset of the flu - muscle aches, lethargic, etc. but no more chills. Day 3 was just the mild headache again and all good by Saturday.

AZ/Pfizer doesn't bother me. I just need the stamp/cert that I'm vax-ed so that when the borders open I can travel more easily. Don't want to get caught in the vax rush when we can travel again.

Got my AZ about 2 weeks ago - worst symptom was a sore arm for about a week. Had very mild flu systems for a few days and lingering lethargy. No big deal.

In breaking news, The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) panel is now putting forth the recommendation to the federal
government that the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine should now be given only to people over the age of 60.

At time of writing, the federal government is yet to accept the recommendation.
