I’m pretty sure that anyone one who lost a family member due to blood clotting from a COVID vaccine wouldn’t dismiss it as 6 in 7 million...
These vaccines have been rushed out & we don’t know the long term affects it’ll have on our immune systems & general health..
They wouldn't dismiss it but as harsh as it sounds the facts remain that it is an incredibly low risk.
The storm created by this, driven by the media and also social platforms is setting a very dangerous precedent for the future. The reality is the risk of a blood clot from the vaccine is incredibly low - young women that take the combined contraceptive pill expose themselves to a far higher risk. Pregnant women have a much higher risk of a clot compared to the those that get the vaccine. If you decide to fly on a plane you're exposing yourself to a much higher risk. People of course need to weight up their own personal risks and benefits to taking it but if you're going to be happy to get on a plane in a few months to go on holiday then you shouldn't be that concerned about the vaccine.
Like I said personal choice of course but what I don't like about this we are now suddenly tearing up the rules and expectations of medicine and science. Nothing in medicine has ever, ever been risk free and in fact nothing will ever be risk free in the future. The paracetamol tablets you take when you get a headache, the antibiotics you take for an infection or even the blood test you have when you're unwell carry risk just as the vaccine does. The flu vaccine gets tweaked every single year depending on what strains came before in Australia and that never seemed to be an issue.
We have to be realistic with our expectations for medicine and if we're going to get hysterical about this current situation then I fear for what's to come.
