Good news, now the EU don’t seem to want the Oxford vaccine perhaps we can get the whole country done by end of May.

Let’s hope our government don’t have a knee jerk reacontion like some others.
They will still ban exports of the AZ vaccine though Removed

I think AZ have been shifting EU supply from internal production within the EU due to their issues with production. No point in it sitting on shelves bathing dust, AZ can send it our way.
All good. But never forget this bent gov could have and should have prevented 10's of thousands of deaths to the most vulnerable in our society. This is what will hang on this gov forever. Removed

The EU is behaving inexplicably. Whatever their reasons, surely it means another three months of lost economic output. Glad they think they can afford it. Based on the election results in Germany and Macron's weak position, perhaps they should realise that they are standing in a burning building while fussing about which exit they use.

They won't. Half the world has declared them unsafe. You can reject the comment all you like because it doesn't fit narrative, but it remains true, anyone with half a brain is going to want some answers before letting you stick that rubbish in their veins.

Shameful comment. They haven't been declared 'unsafe' indeed WHO and every key scientist supports it. This is the EU playing politics or if not they are being far too careful with such a miniscule risk (even if it is the vaccine, which it isn't) v a very real risk of dying from Covid. That's the real world not the strange one you seem to live in.

Given that the Oxford/AZ phase3 clinical trial is due to officially finish in Sept 2021, and normally the data collected from such trials are then analyzed for years afterwards before being able to be declared sfae for use or not, I will definately not be joining in this experiment. As a healthy 39yr old, I'd much rather take my chance with the real virus, as I have a 99.96% chance of survival!

There is something very political about the EU country approach for the Astra Zeneca Jab. The normal occurrence of blood clots in the adult population is 120 persons per million per month. That means with 5 million vaccinations over February in the EU there should be 600 cases - actuality there were 31.
I concir with your thrust. Tje EU is in disarray through the current phase of pandemic and the EU being tje EU, heads will shortly role.

It's scientifically proven that NOT having the vaccine will dramatically increase your chances of clots, blood clots are one of the bad symptoms of covid 19.

No one under 50 in the UK was ever going to be vaccinated anyway, this vaccine, like the flu vaccine, was for older more vulnerable adults. Younger people with a much stronger immune response, could be caused some "freak harm" according to the UK's vaccine task force chair, Kate Bingham.

As one who has been vaccinated, over the years, eg Smallpox, BCG, I will certainly avoid vaccines produced in a hurry. It takes many years before you can say for sure a particular vaccine is safe. Even then, it depends on your conscientious collection of adverse reactions. I ask questions because the answers will determine whether I accept the vaccine, if offered. So far I am unconvinced.
