I have read that the first Oxford vaccine, not the Pfizer, has left people with quite a few Covid symptoms. Has anyone experienced this? And would the vaccine actually give you Covid to the extent that you are hospitalised?

My colleague's wife (NHS staff) had the Oxford vaccine a few days ago and shes been feeling quite ill.
I don’t think the vaccine can give you Covid. Didn’t you ask this a few days ago?
No and no.
That's what he told me earlier anyway.
All of the vaccines can, for some people, produce side effects which aren't too dissimilar to the milder symptoms of Covid-19. However none of them actually give you Covid-19 itself, so there's no way that the symptoms can worsen to the extent that hospitalisation is required.
My mother has had extreme fatigue. This led to her ignoring folk and the want to eat and drink - and the Home put her on an 'end of life path'. My sister went in and managed to break this cycle...... I was going in today but she was up, bright and cheery, so they are stepping her down, the Home Manageress saying that the staff and not the inmates having reported such tiredness......she will also contact the doctor as to the second injection.... My joke was ' at times my mother thinks that she is a staff member!' (had her laughing).

I thought that the Mater had received the Pfizer being a care home but it was, in fact, the Oxford one.
All inoculations are likely to have "side effects", some of which may resemble mild symptoms of the illness itself. Anaphylactic shock is a known occasional effect of inoculation and there have been reports of this in the case of at least the Pfizer vaccine. Other side effects have been reported, some being regarded as serious, including possible connections with death (not confirmed). I have seen these mentioned abroad more than in the UK, but then my experience is of much higher levels of transparency than in the UK (where things are more likely to remain hidden). I have no reason to doubt the reports which come through public/media briefings on statistics, trends, etc. I don't recall seeing anything leading to hospitalisation with Covid after inoculation but I have seen reports of examples where Covid was contracted "in spite of" inoculation against it.
Dtc, I don't know which our clients have had, as they don't know. But fatigue the day after seems normal... one has had it for around a week now. And one had a temperature after and legs gave way... but fine the following day.
I always thought that when you have a vaccine and you get symptoms, its because of your own immune response to it.
The Mater was about 5 days, my sister breaking the vicious downwards cycle, it seems....misread by the Home perhaps but then we are in new territories.
I had the Oxford vaccine at lunchtime and felt ok until later that evening when I started to ache and felt a bit shivery. I took some paracetamol as suggested by the nurse who administered the vaccination. I felt fine when I got up next morning and I also went for a 5 mile walk 2 days later. My arm was sore at the vaccination site for a few days but this also happened with the flu jab. I think, as has already been suggested, people will react in different ways.
Listen to Chief Medical Officer TTT @ 20.07 Who will soon be recruited into Boris's Medical team.
I had the Oxford vaccine just over a week ago and had no side-effects whatsoever.
The vaccine can't give you Covid because there is no covid virus in the vaccine.
tigger I am a flu vaccine reactor, always get 24 to 48 hours of feeling rough. The first year I got the new over 65's version I was flat on my back for 3 days and groggy for another 4 or so. It was nowhere near as bad as flu.
My arm has ached whenever I've had the flu jab and that is all. I've only had the jab 3 or 4 times which I have to pay for.
This year was my 10th year. My sister, who is older than I am, doesn't even get a sore arm. Sometimes she gets a bruise.
I had the Oxford one last Thursday - no side effects at all.
OH had the AZ last week , no symptoms , they gave him a leaflet and what could be but luckily , nothing
Son Frazer had it 2weeks ago with no side affects - pretty good since he has been hospitalised with scleroderma for almost 3y.
