Seems like last Friday was a day many under 50 people who've registered started getting sms notifications to book vaccination times. Both PRs and EP holders seemed to get it from my circles. I got mine and will get both shots in April.
Interesting, I am over 50 and so far only got an acknowledgement of the pre-registration I did last Thursday.

I know a couple of guys under 55 who have got their booking SMS but they had registered before the latest opening up last week, they had basically rolled the dice and tried to register early. Looks to me like those early registrations were not acted on at the time but are now being processed in the order received. Like you I registered Thursday morning and have got the acknowledgement SMS only.

The above is pure speculation on my part and based on two guys I was chatting to in the pub on Friday night.

I did my registration for the interest maybe 3 at least 2 weeks before. So maybe some order how they start clearing the Q's.

My mother (late 50s and a Singapore citizen) received her notification a few days ago. She pre-registered so I assume she was one of the first to receive a notification for this round. Her first shot is in early April. My father will be fully vaccinated by then (early 60s) so both parents being vaccinated will be a great relief for me.

I did a new preregistration on the 25th March and just had my first jab today.

There's a lot of spare capacity so try again if you registered early and didn't get a follow up SMS.

Did you have any side effects yet?

I got my 1st shot yesterday, and no side effects to mention. well this morning the muscle area where it was shot is a bit sensitive if you push on it. But that's what I get also from normal flushots. So wouldn't consider it a side effect really. It was quite busy in the vaccination center, so looks like people starting to pick up, which is good.

Muscle soreness is a really common side effect, along with slight fever, headaches, nausea, and fatigue.

That is what amazed me. I had absolutely zero side effects for either of the jabs. I'm now 3.5 weeks post 2nd jab. nada, zip, zero, nothing. a total non-event.

Got my first shot of the Moderna vaccine on Sunday. Very, very smooth and efficient process. In and out in less than 45 minutes - inc the 30 min waiting time to see if I dropped dead. Slightly sore shoulder. No sign of any super powers emerging just yet. My 2nd jab with be on May 2.

My father experienced muscle soreness but only for 2 or 3 days. None of the more serious side effects. He is now fully vaccinated, he received his second dose on Good Friday.

My father received the Pfizer-Biontech vaccine. I dropped him off and he was ready in less than an hour, including waiting, the shot and the monitoring period after. An amazing display of efficiency!

Me and my wife had our first Moderna jab Sunday as well, my arm was pretty sore yesterday but much better today, the wife is still feeling it today but says it is improving. No other effects for either of us.

Well I know it wasn't saline water! I was "heaty" for a few nights...

I got my first last night. Pfizer. No side effects except for muscle pain at the jab point. Quite an efficient operation by the government.
