Yesterday, in response to another thread about the AstraZeneca vaccine concerns, I tweeted,
“I hear there’s also a risk of having a car accident while driving to or from your AZ vaccination! Why is this not being revealed to the public?”
Which got some cheery replies, like,
“You could be run over walking from your car too, these car parks are dangerous places!”
And Clive Brown responded with a quick back-of-the-envelope calculation which showed that, yes, indeed, if you drove 6 miles for your vaccine, an accident was more likely than a blood clot.
Getting mine tomorrow, if I survive the journey…
What are the chances of catching covid-19 if you walk there and back? 🙂
Yes, of course the latest MHRA data has just shown the reported rate of thrombosis to be higher for the Pfizer vaccine than AstraZeneca.
Naturally that won’t be similarly slurred since it’s not a wicked British vaccine: they’re good, American clots…
