The benefits of the AZ vaccine far outweigh the dangers. It is irresponsible that some European governments are stopping this vaccine, many more will die because of their action. Shame on Merkel, Macron & Co.

Well it's not actually the EU - the European Medicines Agency has recommended people keep giving the vaccine. It's the national governments that have been stopping it as they have sovereignty over healthcare.

You know....that thing you Brexiteers said we didn't have.

But hey, why let facts get in the way of your blinkered view?

Meanwhile over on the Daily Mail website “INDIAN VACCINE FIASCO” is the headline.

Surely this is being driven by both media and public expectations that there should be zero risk in any thing we do. The politicians are reacting to this.
Meantime I'm sure the folk who will needlessly die of Covid due to lack of vaccination over the next few weeks will be relieved to know that concern for their safety was the deciding factor!

Last time I looked, Thailand and the Republic of Congo aren't in the EU but they suspended use of AZ pending the review. The only people who seek to blame the EU aren't medics.
The word ‘clot’ has a number of meanings.
There are plenty of clots in the EU when it comes to vaccine rollout. None of which have anything to do with congealed blood.

Now see, this is what infuriates me, people are already describing the AZ vaccine as the "worse one" etc., all on the back of the EU's smear campaign. Not only have they managed to turn off millions of their own people from taking this wonderful vaccine, they've succeeded in some cases here too. Disgrace.
The worst one is the Glaxo-Sinofi one. It doesn't work. The second worst is the Chinese one. It barely works.

That said the Oxford/AZ one does have a MASSIVE flaw the Pfizer/BioNtech or Moderna doesn't.... because its chimp-virus based you can only give it twice ever. Forget getting an annual Oxford jab. Thats why its called a first generation vaccine.

We know there is no evidence. Everyone with a medical qualification is saying there is no evidence. Oxford AZ is no more likely to give you a blood clot than any other vaccine. It is just as likely in people who have not been vaccinated.

I had a person tell me today he had cancelled his vaccine after reading about blood clots. Shocking.

BBC need to state this is fake news and stop covering it.
Well that person is basically an idiot. He's risking ending up in ICU on a ventilator rather than have a jab with a virtually zero chance of getting a blood clot. I hope you pointed that out. Removed

Here are the facts:

- side effects similar between both vaccines, being a sore arm or mild flu symptoms

- risk of blood clots is similar for both vaccines, but lower than in unvaccinated individuals

Any vaccine is good and you should not hesitate to take what is offered.

We need a high uptake to get us out of this mess.

But its not due to a "EU smear campaign" that pfizer is seen as better then the AZ, its a fact

It doesnt matter where its made or by whom, one only needs to look at efficiency.

The Truth
18:19
"I for one want someone to kick for the 125,000+ deaths"

The Truth is that there have not been 125k Covid deaths.

the truth is the govt has changed its "way" of counting TWICE already
and this from the chancers that alone on the planet count a pair of PPE gloves as TWO ITEMS
excess deaths up nearer 150k

I got a text and ignored it

The follow-up call seven days later was perfectly professional, polite and nice

I declined the vaccine and the caller recorded my decision

The caller asked no further questions

Good service
what rubbish they just write to you
Fact no vaccine has yet been approved by the FDA, EMA or MHRA
they have received emergency authorisation use during the Pandemic
usual vaccine testing takes 3 to 6 years
vaccine producers have received immunity from prosecution
long term effects are these vaccines are unknown
mRNA vaccine never used before
covid19 fatality lower than flue

Well it's not actually the EU - the European Medicines Agency has recommended people keep giving the vaccine. It's the national governments that have been stopping it as they have sovereignty over healthcare.

If there is any association at all, the clots are most likely caused by inept doctors or nurses injecting air bubbles with the vaccine. Hardly surprising there would be a few careless doctors and nurses giving some botched injections out of the millions already given. Removed

I don't subscribe to that. The Norwegians have found a heightened immune response, that's not air bubbles. At the back of my mind is early reports, April 2020, of blood clotting in patients with Covid, which could be part of the immune response. I do not have enough medical knowledge to understand the mechanism, but you can bet the researchers are all over this!

If it ends up that either incidences of blood clots are higher after vaccination than random chance, or a mechanism for the vaccine to cause blood clots is found. Then the UK has the vaccine damage payment scheme for compensation.

People keep slagging off the EU on this subject. I can't decide if this stems from stupidity or laziness. It is not the EU, but individual countries not exclusively from the EU who paused using the AZ vaccine. I speak as a brexiteer, but also someone who likes to see opinions based on evidence and facts. Despite living in a world where we seem entitled to our own truth, real facts do exist.
