Received my first Pfizer shot this past Sunday. My arm was slightly sore for a day (it's 100% now) and zero other side effects so far.

Did it at Discovery Sandton, took 31 min from arrival outside the building to getting the shot. Then I had the obligatory 15 min wait and that was it. Discovery are jacked, recommend big time.
Stupid question but do you need to be a discovery member?

Got the J&J jab yesterday, felt a little 'weird' afterwards and had a brief 'moeg aanval' when I got home. But feeling good now, no symptoms today.

How are some people getting J&J? Is there a way to choose?

As far as I know it depends on where you live. Certain areas which can store the Pfizer vaccines are getting those, while areas without the cold storage facilities are getting J&J.

Also did it at a discovery site, with the 15 minute wait after the injection it took about 30 minutes. Really well organised

Discovery vax sites in GP have been reported as having similar experience - organized & friendly. At least as per limited circle I know of.

I think that you get what's available. When I went for mine, they were giving Pfizer shots only to people who were there for their second injection, and everyone else got J&J.

For those not on medical aid: How long are people waiting currently after registering to get their 1st appointment date? I know someone whose been waiting nearly a week with no confirmation, I got mine 2 to 3 days after registering.

Also I'm scheduled to return for 2nd jab in under 2 weeks on 17th August, yet no SMS reminder confirmation as advised, and it's been a month since I had my first jab.

Go in. I know several people who did walk-ins, including myself. The chap at the entrance asked if we had appointment or if we were walk-ins, when we indicted the latter he nodded and waved us in.
