For once and for all: goddamned AstraZeneca

My BF (aged 56 and fat) here in Canada has been offered the chance to get shot 1 of AstraZeneca on Monday. I am actually not so worried about the blood clots (since he is not a young woman on the Pill), but I am worried about that 65% effectiveness thing for the 1st shot. Sixty-five percent doesn’t sound too fucking great to me.

And if he tries to wait for Moderna, etc., here in Canada, he could wait months.

What if AZ is totally banned here and he then can’t get shot number 2? This is actually possible. Is there some other vaccine that would suffice as number 2?

Please give me advice if you know anything about medicines, etc.

65% is to prevent any infection but I believe a higher percentage against severe cases.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 104/02/2021

The main reason by J&J and AZ have seemingly lower effectiveness is that they were actually tested against the newer variants.

Pfizer and Moderna weren’t originally so they seem to have higher effectiveness if you rely solely on the original studies.

They all stop severe disease and hospitalziation

Choosy Canadians choose Phizer.

I had the AZ jab, my dad had it, my boyfriend has had it.

No side effects. All ok. High efficacy rates. Very happy.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 504/02/2021

I don’t care about side effects. My concern is will the one shot work? Oh and here in goddamn Canada, he will get shot number 2 in 3-5 months, although the manufacturer intended 28 days. Why? Because we have almost no fucking vaccines.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 604/02/2021

Take it! Don’t wait.

R1 I also know nothing about medicines, etc. but I distrust anything containing the letter 'Z'.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 804/02/2021

OP, one dose will stop you getting severe COVID.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 904/02/2021

Stop being such a paintywaist neurotic panicky bitch.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1004/02/2021

Pfizer is the Joey Hetherton of vaccines

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1104/02/2021

1 shot of AZ now is better than waiting god knows how long for anything else.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1204/02/2021

Since it's so shitty in there in Canada you had better take what you can get, think about it, who knows it may be the only one you can get. Get it and worry later.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1304/02/2021

Tons of co-workers in the UK had the AZ vaccine - no problems at all. And they don't know anyone who had problems.

Get it.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1404/02/2021

The best vaccine is the one that you receive, any one that you receive.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1504/02/2021

That's actually far more effective than the flu vaccine they make us get every year. I am getting the J&J vaccine next week (fingers crossed) and it's around 65% as well and I am not waiting for another one. I want to get back to going to the movies and out to restaurants and traveling ASAP.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1604/02/2021

News flash: EMA has concluded there is a link between the deadly blood clots and the vaccine and will include the condition as one of possible side effects of the vaccine.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1704/07/2021

Why do you keep bragging that your BF is fat?

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1804/07/2021

One of my Canadian friends said that she has to wait 4 months to get her 2nd astra z shot. She said that Canada wants to get as many as possible on #1 and worry about #2 later.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 1904/07/2021

[quote]The best vaccine is the one that you receive, any one that you receive.

Think of the vaccine like you think about cock, OP.

Sure that cock might cause anal fissures, or barely touch your insides, but it's still a cock.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 2004/07/2021

I am Canadian and still haven’t been given the first AZ shot.... Or any shot. I am pretty fucking furious at Justin Trudeau. And we are having a big third wave now, so we have to stay indoors still. There is going to be a big impact on our economy and many unnecessary deaths.

by Goddamnit it all to hellreply 2104/08/2021

OP, Don’t let him get the vaccine. 31 million of us in the UK have received a first dose of vaccination (the vast majority of them AZ) and we are all dead now.
