Astra Zeneca here. The first dose was brutal - spent a sleepless night with a fever, chills, nausea, pain. Was completely better after 24 hours though. The second dose had no side effects at all.
I'm getting my booster vaccine this week. It will presumably be AZ again, but I'll update this post to report on side effects (if any) from it.
There's a possibility I had Covid back in June - it was either that or another viral infection like tonsillitis. It felt too bad to be just a cold, as I was seriously ill for a week and took another 2 weeks to recover. I was nowhere close to being hospitalised, but dang: I had already been double vaccinated by that point so if it was Covid I dodged a bullet there.
