Under-30s in the UK are to be offered an alternative Covid vaccine to the AstraZeneca jab due to the evidence linking it to rare blood clots.

The recommendation comes after a review by the UK drugs regulator found that by the end of March 79 people had suffered rare blood clots after vaccination – 19 of whom had died.

Thanks to political bufoons and a sensationalist press, a load of people will turn their nose up at a vaccine because of a possible, hypothetical and infintesimal risk of a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Half of them will be young women who will happily take the pill, which carries a far greater risk of causing blood clots. The risk in context:

  1. So, the governments should attempt to lie even though researchers will release the info anyway?

    Your Patriotism is blinding you to good practice. It’s British made so lets not tell them about the risks. Are you that insecure? It also appears to be more of a concern for younger age groups. And they seem to be mitigating the risk by giving them Johnny Foreigners vaccine… the young, unpatriotic ingrates.

    And who’s Ben Kentish – what scientific qualifications does he have? Or is, ‘he agrees with my position’ qualification enough?

  2. As for Ben – yeah, wont be recommending his Alma Mater. First of all the official figures are twice his tweet – 4 cases per million . https://www.gov.uk/government/news/mhra-issues-new-advice-concluding-a-possible-link-between-covid-19-vaccine-astrazeneca-and-extremely-rare-unlikely-to-occur-blood-clots

    But, his statement, ‘or 2 cases per million people over 3 months.’ You don’t need to be a scientist to realise the qualifier ‘over 3 months’ is irrelevant. But, yeah, let’s give credence to this clown. What’s the correct use per million of “facts” by ATW bloggers? That’s the info we need 😀

  3. smcgiff –

    The tiny risk should absolutely be explained. I think you got the wrong end of the stick.
