I'm 32.... so I've lost all confidence now in AZ.... when it gets offered
Under-30s in the UK are to be offered an alternative Covid vaccine to the AstraZeneca jab due to the evidence linking it to rare blood clots.
The recommendation comes after a review by the UK drugs regulator found that by the end of March 79 people had suffered rare blood clots after vaccination - 19 of whom had died.
Again this is about data and transparency. When changing the guidelines yesterday a table should have published highlighting risk of death from Covid versus risk of death from vaccine, banded by age group. It's much easier to argue the benefits of something if you have the facts to hand.
Completely in favour of personal choice here but informed choice is key. The mail headline is jingoistic bull**** which doesn't inform at all, and the Sun front page whilst quoting data, (deliberately?) chooses misleading data (risk of death for entire population versus u30s specifically).
Thanks for this SM, how are the Spanish media reporting the drop in deaths being attributed to the vaccine roll out in the UK and the UK vaccine roll out in general. I am genuinely interested as to the coverage it gets around Europe and the attitude of the residents to the UK at the moment.AstraZeneca suspended temporarily for people under 60 in Spain
See the Spanish coronavirus thread for a translation of the Spanish article from last night.
To be honest, I do not see much on the Spanish sites I look at. However most of the sites I look at are regional ones for the province I am in. With a focus on what is happening in Almería and Andalucía.Thanks for this SM, how are the Spanish media reporting the drop in deaths being attributed to the vaccine roll out in the UK and the UK vaccine roll out in general.

If you are under 30, apparently (according to BBC last night), the chances of dying in a car crash are 1/100,000 (but every three months)... and yet we all still happily get in cars.All i'm saying is it was 30 people the other day.... now it's 79, what will it be tomorrow or next week?
At the moment I have lost faith in AZ, I will consider taking another vaccine
If it's not good enough for under 30s... it's not OK for me
Apathy is perhaps my one word answer towards the UK about coronavirus .Cheers for these I'll have a look to temper my own curiosity.
I get that about being more interested in your own country, but as an expat who has shown an interest on how the UK are doing in the past I thought you might be able to let me know what the overall feeling is towards the UK at the moment and our use of AZ vaccine.
According to an article published in the New York Times:What’s the causes and numbers?
More than 31 million people in the United States have received at least one dose, and 36 similar cases [thrombocytopenia] had been reported to the government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, VAERS, by the end of January. The cases involved either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine
You put up links to two deaths the other day. Are they the only deaths?
I only recall mentioning the one death, that of the doctor in Florida. I don't have information regarding any others.You put up links to two deaths the other day. Are they the only deaths?
