Blood clots now found in 1 in 100,000; women over 55 banned from ever getting it.

Her collapse is complete. Bye, girl.

It's women UNDER 55, not over that they don't recommend take it.

This shit has been a disaster from the beginning. Just dump it and concentrate on the others.

Just take blood thinners or aspirin before the vaccine

I'm treating it with lipo and herbs.

Although the US has never approved AZ's use in the US, they have a stockpile of it and will be sending it to Canada and Mexico at their request.

I knew a girl who got an AstraZeneca shot.

Did they not test it enough on younger women during the trials? It wouldn't surprise me. They don't like women's pesky hormones in scientific studies, so they just skip it. Where's our international WLM movement?

It's working in the UK.

Has the UK only been giving it to old people?

by Anonymousreply 1303/30/2021

R8, that's the thing about clinical trials: They test something on maybe thousands or tens of thousands of people, but if there is a rare 1 in 100,000 problem, they might not learn about it then. That's also why no vaccine is actually approved yet. Some have emergency use authorization because of the dire situation. But the regulatory agencies will want to see more data before they approve.

I hear that the UK has been more rigorous about vaccinating by age. My understanding also is that the UK gets the vaccine from a different manufacturing plant than the EU does. But nobody really knows for sure exactly what's going on.

[quote]Just take blood thinners or aspirin before the vaccine

Apparently, it's causing a rare form of thrombosis in the brain that cannot be prevented by normal blood thinners.

It seems to be treatable, however, if the symptoms are recognized and the person is rushed to specialized hospitals.

The problem is that the symptoms seem to start 4-7 days after the vaccination.

by Anonymousreply 1703/30/2021

Yet when I said it I was attacked. My thread about Norwegian doctors finding a link was closed and I was called an anti-waxer. Fuck you all. I knew I would be right and that the research and new cases would back me up. I fucking knew the Norwegian doctors were right. EU cannot be trusted. They constantly brushed it off and said the vaccine was "safe" despite several young and healthy people dying from deadly blood clots.

by Anonymousreply 1803/31/2021

R4 Not that easy. Have you been reading ANYTHING about the cases? We are not talking about normal blood clots, we are talking about blood clots combined with bleeding. You cannot just use blood thinners. That is what makes these cases so serious. I don't think countries would stop using it if it was about simple cases of blood clots. Everyone knows blood clots happen and can be a side effect. However, the blood clots from AZ are a whole diffetent beast. They are more serious and more difficult to treat. On top of it all it affects mostly young people who would likely have survived covid but who now have died from the vaccine. All of this combined is why so many countries have cancelled it or at least cancelled if for young people.

by Anonymousreply 1903/31/2021

R15 J&J contains the same technology as AZ. That makes me a skeptic. I'll take the vaccine without hesitation if I get offered Moderna or Pfizer.

by Anonymousreply 2203/31/2021

R18, according to the data from Germany (31 cases), the likelihood to get one of these is about 1/100,000 for women and much lower for men.

So, yet, it's important to follow up on this, but it's still very rare.

Besides, compared to the danger of covid-19, this is peanuts.

[quote]Has the UK only been giving it to old people?

In addition to people over 60 the vaccine has been given all health care and social care workers, along with people in vulnerable groups.

The NHS has over a million employees. 89% of nurses are female.

Had there been any adverse reactions in the UK there's no way it would have been covered up.

Well, death from covid anyway — amirite?!?!?!

R23 Here in Norway the likelyhood of getting the deadly blood clot is 1:20 000.

by Anonymousreply 2803/31/2021

yes, you are correct, that is the fundamental point of taking the vaccine, not to change the channels on your Xbox

by Anonymousreply 2903/31/2021

R28, that is a pretty high likelihood... I still think that the AZ vaccine is better than no vaccine, but it should be an individual decision whether people want to risk it.

by Anonymousreply 3003/31/2021

R30 Exactly. Only a bit more than 100k have been vaccinated with AZ here and we have had like 5 or 6 cases of the deadly blood clots. There's a reason they paused AZ. I highly doubt they will use it again. People are scared. The people who died from the blood clots were young and healthy and probably would have survived if they got covid, yet what killed them was the vaccine.

True but don't forget that there are a shit ton of employees in frontline health services who have had the vaccine - all ages, genders and ethnicities. Close to a million. If they haven't found anything worrying in those already jabbed then it's not that likely to happen. As of now, those all aged 50+ have been offered a vaccine as of right and in many areas of the country where vaccination has proceeded more quickly, plenty in the 40+ bracket have had one as well. Add to that that vaccines have been already offered to all those over 16 with a comorbidity. Given the numbers vaccinated by now, we must have had plenty of statistically significant serious adverse events by now for the action in Europe to be justified but nobody seems to have found anything to worry about.

As for AZ supplies in the UK, mostly it is home made. An initial batch came from the Halix plant in the Netherlands, which hasn't yet been approved for EU production. Apart from that, some has come from the Serum Institute in India, although the latest batch of 5m doses has been postponed due to the worsening situation in India.

by Anonymousreply 3303/31/2021

yeah and AZ still said NO evidence, lying cunts!

by Anonymousreply 3403/31/2021

How are they explaining that this didn't happen in the UK? Is there some difference in the production besides the location of the plant between those being used in the UK and those used in the rest of Europe? Are the frontline female healthcare workers in the UK especially old?

Woman suffers agonizing rash after Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID vaccine

A 41-year-old Scottish woman who received a COVID-19 vaccine broke out in a severe rash that has left her in agony more than two weeks after her fateful jab, according to a report.

Leigh King, of Wishaw in North Lanarkshire, got her first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine on March 12 but is still suffering from intense pain from the rash, which covers her face, chest and arms, the Wishaw Press reports.

“My skin was so sore and constantly hot. I have never felt pain like this – it has been a horrible experience,” said the hairdresser, the mother of a 13-year-old autistic boy named Aidan.

“I am a very healthy person and am not on any medication or anything like that. I am not even in a vulnerable category,” King told the news outlet. “I only got the vaccine as I am an unpaid carer for my son, who has autism and mobility issues.”

She added: “I haven’t even been able to care for him since I got the vaccine as I am in such pain.”

King said she began to feel the alarming reaction almost immediately after receiving the shot at the Ravenscraig super center.

“It was a horrible feeling. Never in my life was I prepared for what I was about to experience,” she said. “To say it’s been the worst time of my life is an absolute understatement.”

She said a letter she received the day of her inoculation instructed her to seek medical help if side effects persisted after 48 hours.

“I went to Wishaw A&E but was turned away,” she told the newspaper, referring to “Accident and Emergency,” the equivalent of an ER.

“I went back twice more and the last time I was in such pain I could barely walk out the hospital,” King added.

She said the condition has seriously affected her ability to care for her child.

“Aidan has also found this whole thing difficult. He is scared to come near me because of how my skin looks and he struggles to understand what is going on,” King told the Wishaw Press.

“At home is his happy place and I am his best pal, I got this vaccine to care for Aidan but I haven’t even been able to do that,” she continued. “This has just been such a tough situation, and has been so physically and mentally draining for the whole family.”

King emphasized that she is not against vaccines but believes there has been a lack of follow-up care in her case and that there are many unanswered questions about potential side effects.

“I feel so let down on every level. I’m now waiting to see a skin specialist as it’s been such an extreme reaction and also need an eye test as my eyes are so dry,” she said.

“I wish there was more support for people if this happens to them,” King added.

A National Health Service spokesperson told the Wishaw Press that the agency is “unable to discuss individual patient care and would ask the patient to contact us directly to discuss their concerns.”

The NHS said in a general statement: “The vaccines approved for use in the UK have met strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

“Any coronavirus vaccine that is approved must go through all the clinical trials and safety checks all other licensed medicines go through. The MHRA follows international standards of safety,” it continued.

“Other vaccines are being developed. They will only be available on the NHS once they have been thoroughly tested to make sure they are safe and effective,” the NHS added.

“So far, millions of people have been given a COVID-19 vaccine and reports of serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, have been very rare. No long-term complications have been reported.”

More than one in 10 people who receive the AstraZeneca vaccine will experience tenderness, pain, warmth, itching or bruising at the site of the injection, The Sun reported.

Itchy skin or a rash is less common, affecting about one in 100 people due to an inflammatory response, according to clinical trials cited by the news outlet.

I'm mid-30s and had AstraZeneca in mid-February, two of my team are mid-to-late 20s and had AstraZeneca (one's overweight, the other cares for her Mum), both my parents and all Aunts/Uncles have had AstraZeneca. We're all fine. I don't understand what's happening in Europe; how are the people over there supposed to keep up with the never-ending policy changes? First you're too old for AZ, then you're too young. It doesn't work! Yes, it does! Well, I won't take it! Actually, yes I will! We're following the European regulator's advice! We're ignoring the European regulator's advice! We want more AZ vaccine! We can't give the AZ vaccine away! Let's buy the Russian vaccine!

EMA concludes that there is a link between the deadly blood clots and the vaccine. They will now list it as a possible side effect.
