Covid: Under-30s offered alternative to Oxford-AstraZeneca jab
07/04/2021 | news | health | 2,348
A review finds a "plausible" link to rare blood clots, but says the jab remains beneficial for most.
Safe as houses folks roll up. roll, up. for the experimental vaccine it's been approved for emergency use only, of course it's safe Boris and his parade of medical puppets say so. You may never get covid, but with this poison you may die from blood clots, and its free, and cheap. . . Roll up, roll up. C'mon all you scared people come get it, you will be ok. . honest. Removed

I'm happy to roll up as a healthy 37 year old. Because I have checked the odds and I have a 1 in 5000 chance of dying of covid, and a 1 in 1,000,000 chance of dying from this potential vaccine side effect. I'd say it's a no brainer but clearly not that's an overstatement...!

Like Moderna’s mRNA-1273, designed by January 13, 2020. This was just two days after the genetic sequence had been made public, the design took all of one weekend, done by a company that has NEVER developed any other approved drug since it was formed in 2010, using the mRNA "technique", a technique NEVER approved for human use anywhere in the world, only used in small trials on cancer patients.

1 in a thousand taking the contraceptive pill will develop a blood clot. So why the fuss for something where the odds are much greater?
Because the pill serves a purpose, all the vaccine does is potentially lessen symptoms for a mild virus. Removed

Because the pill...

What an absolutely moronic statement to make. Utterly contemptible. Millions of people around the world have died from this ‘mild virus’ and many more will. Not to mention the as yet unknown long term affects from long COVID.

There are alternatives to the pill which do not involve risk to other people. I'd suggest the relatives of those who've passed away from this "mild" virus might disagree with you.

Everything carries risk - look at smoking - all those thousands with lung cancer from something considered safe at one time? People still smoke? The long term effects of vaping are unknown?

It’s typical Bojo: claim everything is wonderful and world beating then get caught out by experts.
What?

The EMA AGREE with Boris Johnson and our regulator that the AZ vaccine’s very rare unconfirmed blood clot risk outweighs the negatives of NOT rolling it out.

With billions more people than available vaccines, there is no financial incentive for a company to discredit a rival vaccine in the midst of a global pandemic.

Regulators decide, pharma companies manufacture.

It seems that the cheaper AZ vaccine is riskier than some other vaccines, but having Covid is riskier than having the AZ vaccine.
