Got a couple PCR tests coming, got the home tests but they do seem pretty useless, feels like the flu a bit but I'm guessing if the other half has tested positive I'm probably going through the same, got a couple inhalers so I'll just use them the now, cheers for the thoughts and advice guys, appreciated, feck Covid.

In my experience you get a much quicker response if you go and get a PCR test, it takes days when you post it. I absolutely self isolated from my wife for the 10 days, she managed not to catch it.

Keep safe mate.

If you were at the match on Sunday it might just be a dose of the tynie cowie, should pass in a week or so.

Take it easy.

Aye one of my household tested positive and I've recently become breathless, cough etc despite me testing negative, reckon I have it like hopefully the vaccines doing its job. Seems rife in schools etch just now, caught it from the bairns.
Hope you're doing OK. The lateral flow tests are p!sh to be honest and the PCR version is the gold standard...even though they can show a negative result even though the person is clearly positive 🙄

Hope you're ok. If you don't have one it might be worth getting hold of a blood oxygen monitor. That can give you a bit of early warning just in case.

My daughter tested positive on a lateral flow on Sunday and confirmed by PCR yesterday. The rest of us tested negative.
I second that and actually have an app on my phone to measure my sats 🤭👍

Had my Pfizer booster and my flu jab 5 minutes ago.
Sitting waiting for the compulsory 15 minutes .
Maybe should have taken one in each arm as its aching already.
But it's only pain....

My wife had her booster yesterday, there were second dose folk there too. Everyone had to wait 15 minutes.

Up till now I've never known 'normal' folk having to hang around.

I had to do the 15-minute wait for my second jag. It was Cup Final day too.
Wish it had been 15 hours 😕

I was told to have a seat for 15 minutes for my previous two jags, but I just buggered off.
