My Covid-19 Vaccination Experience!!

(NOT SPONSORED.) This week I got my Covid-19 vaccination. In this video I show you the process you can expect: before, during and after. Also, what side effects I experienced. You will receive one of three versions: Oxford Astrazeneca, Pfizer, Moderna. After your first dose, you should get a follow-up second jab 11 to 12 weeks later. They also confirmed to me that pregnant women should NOT get the vaccine. Was it painful? Did I suffer any side effects?

(As someone the government labelled “extremely vulnerable” I was advised to shield at the start of the pandemic, and that’s why I was invited for a jab quite early on, despite being relatively young.)

The Process:
* Temperature check on arrival
* Socially distanced waiting area
* Complete a checklist (form)
* Medical questions by vaccinator
* Vaccine administered
* Don’t drive for 15+ minutes
* Take paracetamol for any side effects
* Return 11-12 weeks later for second dose


TRANSCRIPT

1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:03,000
[Theme tune]

2
00:00:04,613 –> 00:00:08,409
According to the government, as
someone with multiple disabilities,

3
00:00:08,409 –> 00:00:11,384
I am “extremely vulnerable”.

4
00:00:11,384 –> 00:00:15,614
And they’ve repeatedly sent me
letters asking me to get vaccinated.


5
00:00:15,614 –> 00:00:18,560
So I thought let’s have a
look at what the options are.

6
00:00:18,560 –> 00:00:22,749
And one of them was this:
Green Lane Mosque.

7
00:00:22,749 –> 00:00:29,394
My childhood mosque. Where I spent five years being forced to learn how to be an imam.

8
00:00:29,394 –> 00:00:33,254
That didn’t work out well.
But let’s go and get this done.

9
00:00:33,488 –> 00:00:43,840
[Music]

10
00:00:44,800 –> 00:00:48,618
So it was in this building that, for five 
years,

11
00:00:48,618 –> 00:00:56,868
I used to come every day after school to learn the Quran and to study the “science” of Islam.

12
00:00:56,868 –> 00:01:03,703
The teachers were quite strict. In the sense that, if you ever got anything wrong, they would beat you senseless.

13
00:01:03,703 –> 00:01:06,316
Luckily I was clever so I didn’t get things wrong very often.

14
00:01:06,316 –> 00:01:09,600
But the dyslexic kids…
they’ve got some real beatings!

15
00:01:10,240 –> 00:01:12,648
And, of course, it’s what Allah would have wanted.

16
00:01:12,648 –> 00:01:19,170
Because they are morally deficient, the disabled… right?

17
00:01:19,621 –> 00:01:22,485
Yeah, that that that that’s that’s what it was.

18
00:01:22,485 –> 00:01:25,937
Morally deficient disabled kids deserve good beatings(!)

19
00:01:25,937 –> 00:01:28,788
They don’t get away with that nowadays. Absolutely not.

20
00:01:28,788 –> 00:01:34,487
But when we were kids they absolutely did get away with it all the time.

21
00:01:34,487 –> 00:01:40,491
Some really horrific stuff that I saw: kids, you know, bleeding out of their faces they’d beaten so badly.

22
00:01:40,491 –> 00:01:44,080
But, yeah, the law caught up with the mosques in the end.

23
00:01:44,800 –> 00:01:48,162
But now they do good work.
Like Covid vaccinations.

24
00:01:48,162 –> 00:01:51,116
So let’s go inside and get that done.

25
00:01:51,318 –> 00:01:58,494
[Music]

26
00:01:58,960 –> 00:02:01,801
Receptionist: “Alright, can I just ask,
did you get a letter from the NHS?”

27
00:02:01,801 –> 00:02:03,224

  • I did, yes.
  • “You did?”

28
00:02:03,224 –> 00:02:06,425

  • “Is it as a carer or for your health?”
  • For my health.

29
00:02:06,425 –> 00:02:09,269
“Alright, so that’s fine.
Let’s take your temperature.”

30
00:02:10,802 –> 00:02:12,869
“Ooh it’s a bit low!”

31
00:02:12,869 –> 00:02:14,674
“Even that’s a bit low!”

32
00:02:14,674 –> 00:02:17,213
“Oh there we go 35.8 is not bad.”

33
00:02:17,213 –> 00:02:20,311
“You can just fill this in while
you’re waiting. You’re number 31.”

34
00:02:20,311 –> 00:02:23,197
“And this is some information about the vaccine.”

35
00:02:23,337 –> 00:02:45,821
[Music]

36
00:02:46,400 –> 00:02:49,846
Vaccinator: “I just want to confirm that
you’ve not had Covid in the last month?”

37
00:02:49,846 –> 00:02:50,865
No.

38
00:02:50,865 –> 00:02:53,102
“You’ve not been told to self-isolate in the last 14 days?”

39
00:02:53,102 –> 00:02:53,927
No.

40
00:02:53,927 –> 00:02:56,757
“You’ve not been in contact with anyone who’s tested positive in the last 14 days?”

41
00:02:56,757 –> 00:02:57,484
No.

42
00:02:57,484 –> 00:03:00,000
“And you don’t have a fever today,
so we’ve checked your temperature.”

43
00:03:00,000 –> 00:03:03,424
“OK, the most important question and
the most difficult one: are you pregnant?”

44
00:03:03,424 –> 00:03:06,209
[Both laugh] The test hasn’t
come back yet, but we’ll see.

45
00:03:06,209 –> 00:03:08,714
“That’s fine. OK, so in that case,
I’m happy to give you the vaccine.”

46
00:03:08,714 –> 00:03:11,926
“This is the Oxford Astrazeneca. We give two injections. One today and one within 12 weeks.”

47
00:03:11,926 –> 00:03:15,635
“You might have a bit of fever tomorrow.
Maybe a bit of pain at the injection site.”

48
00:03:15,635 –> 00:03:17,727
“Is it OK to do in your left arm?”

  • Yes, please.

49
00:03:18,334 –> 00:03:19,824
I hate this bit.

50
00:03:19,824 –> 00:03:21,734
“Aright tiny scratch.
How did you get here today?”

51
00:03:22,712 –> 00:03:24,908
[Windows bootup sound]

52
00:03:26,080 –> 00:03:30,320
“OK, I’ll ask you if you can just wait for
about 15 minutes before you drive again.”

53
00:03:30,664 –> 00:03:34,754
“And that’s just to make sure you’re not 
feeling dizzy and you’re driving at the same time.”

54
00:03:36,102 –> 00:03:39,724
“Should be fine though. My colleague’s gonna give you a card.”

55
00:03:40,935 –> 00:03:44,067
“You’ve got your information leaflet as well, haven’t you?”

56
00:03:44,067 –> 00:03:46,720
Right. Painless!

  • “You’re good to go.”

57
00:03:46,720 –> 00:03:48,147
Great. Thank you very much.

58
00:03:48,489 –> 00:03:53,519
[Music]

59
00:03:54,480 –> 00:03:59,150
So I was told to wait at least 15 minutes 
before driving, in case I felt dizzy.

60
00:03:59,150 –> 00:04:03,086
It’s now been half an hour. I’ve been
shopping in the local Morrisons.

61
00:04:03,755 –> 00:04:05,134
Feeling no different…

62
00:04:05,134 –> 00:04:07,710
[glitch sound] no diff… whatsoever.

63
00:04:07,710 –> 00:04:11,473
I’m fine. So now I’m going to drive home.

64
00:04:11,473 –> 00:04:13,840
I’m sure it’s fine… Bye.

65
00:04:15,200 –> 00:04:17,917
So back home now. It’s been a couple of hours.

66
00:04:17,917 –> 00:04:24,417
That was dose number one of the Astrazeneca vaccine that they’ve given me.

67
00:04:24,417 –> 00:04:27,440
I now have another appointment,
a follow-up appointment,

68
00:04:27,440 –> 00:04:31,849
for dose number two in 11 to 12 weeks (something like that).

69
00:04:31,849 –> 00:04:34,871
It’s been a couple of hours since the first dose.

70
00:04:34,871 –> 00:04:40,571
And, I’ve got to tell you, this
arm is throbbing. It really is.

71
00:04:40,571 –> 00:04:46,529
I’m gonna use paracetamol. Hopefully that’ll
be enough to sort that out, at least for a while.

72
00:04:46,529 –> 00:04:53,385
But, some people who’ve had it have
told me it’s gonna get worse. Let’s see.

73
00:04:54,366 –> 00:04:58,958
Right, it’s now eight hours since I had my vaccination.

74
00:04:58,958 –> 00:05:01,932
And I’m feeling absolutely fine.

75
00:05:01,932 –> 00:05:07,080
First 30 mins / hour was a bit uncomfortable

  • just a bit of throbbing in the arm.

76
00:05:07,080 –> 00:05:10,455
But, since then, no issues whatsoever.

77
00:05:10,455 –> 00:05:16,131
All I’ve had – no medicine – all I’ve had
is Weetabix and a cup of tea. That is it.

78
00:05:16,400 –> 00:05:20,746
So, it seems like I’m one of the lucky
ones and will have no side effects.

79
00:05:20,746 –> 00:05:23,071
But I’ll report back soon.

80
00:05:24,705 –> 00:05:27,604
Right. So it’s 24 hours later.

81
00:05:27,604 –> 00:05:30,840
And, I’ve got to tell you, I feel good.
I feel absolutely fine.

82
00:05:30,840 –> 00:05:34,437
I’m going out to the park now.
I’m gonna go for a stroll.

83
00:05:34,437 –> 00:05:39,600
Gonna have some fun in the sunshine,
just walking around enjoying nature.

84
00:05:40,560 –> 00:05:46,243
I don’t know why people say that it’s terrible.

85
00:05:46,243 –> 00:05:49,029
I’ve just felt no side effects whatsoever.

86
00:05:49,280 –> 00:05:53,099
Apart from a little bit of soreness for the first half an hour.

87
00:05:53,099 –> 00:05:55,813
So, yeah, I’m glad I got the jab.

88
00:05:55,813 –> 00:06:00,253
And now, hopefully, when the borders reopen,

89
00:06:00,253 –> 00:06:03,276
I will be allowed to leave the country
and start seeing the world again.

90
00:06:03,276 –> 00:06:05,924
Which is what is really, really important to me.

91
00:06:05,924 –> 00:06:08,510
And I’m hoping to bring that to you in the future.

92
00:06:08,510 –> 00:06:11,676
So subscribe to the channel.
There will be more videos soon.

93
00:06:11,676 –> 00:06:12,992
Bye now!

94
00:06:13,179 –> 00:06:22,561
