So why should I personally, with my particular set of circumstances, take the vaccine?
I already got my first shot at 8.20 am this morning..and have not ever had Covid,
I commented to the man from Yorkshire next to me
"Ey up..Welcome to experimental science". He laughed then we moved onto talking about the UK.
The weather is better here.
The Covid vaccination/testing station is located on a former research science precinct
now converted to a Business park with apartments(with Chinese finance)
The only reason I would do a vaccine in your situation is if the powers=that-be
start requiring vaccination certs for travel.
As far as clotting risk.. the evidence from experimental science suggests
that the risk of VITT clotting is low.
Four of my pre- injection questions were directed at establishing that I had low clotting risk.
Despite this prescreening we might expect 1 or 2 deaths at least
among the 20 million doses to the over 50's
that will be administered in the current rollout.
"among 20.2 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine in the U.K., as of March 31. Of these, 44 were CVST and 35 were thromboses in major veins. These events occurred among 51 women and 28 men ages 18 to 79 years, among whom 19 died (13 women, 6 men). Of those who died, 11 were under age 50, and three were under 30. Fourteen had CVST with thrombocytopenia and five had thrombosis with thrombocytopenia.
