Astra Zeneca Vaccine

Post by CrazyCraftLady »

It looks like I called this one wrong. The link between the Astra Zeneca Vaccine and stroke and clotting effects is statistically significant and not due to a bad batch.

The risk from the vaccine is still less than the risk from Covid. For younger people the risks are comparable.

The solution might be to halve the dose of A/Z.

Yeah, the delivery system isn't unique to the Covid vaccines though.
