It's all starting to come out. The blood clots are not a rare occurrence relating to these experimental vaccines.

It's all starting to come out. The blood clots are not a rare occurrence relating to these experimental vaccines.

Do you even read the article? it specifically says they are. There is little point in commenting mistaken information that was proven mistaken in the article. The vaccines are also not experimental anymore, they are being used because of their therapeutic value. Antivaxxer sites commonly lie about this to confuse the public, I recommend you to get your information from official, professional sites.

There always side effects to ANY medicine!

Thanks, JT. This was a useful article.

16 people out of 8 million.

So, 1 in 500,000 people get a blood clot from J&J vaccine, national panic.

1 in 3000 women get a blood clot from hormonal birth control, radio silence.

And for some perspective, 1 in 5 hospitalized Covid patients suffer from blood clots.

Maybe some people should calm the f*** down.

They are experimental though because they're still in trials

No, they are not experimental anymore, their use has been allowed in the general population for their value in preventing the disease since the results to corroborate the primary endgoal has been already finished. The long term following of the volunteers of the phase 3 trials is not a condition for this to happen and the people being vaccinated are not participating in any trial. That is what makes the vaccines no longer experimental. For most drugs in use there are equivalent following of people for long term events without everything in a pharmacy being considered "experimental" just because of that.

Also it now seems that the spike protein itself is harmful, which would explain similarities between the untoward effects of both the virus and the vaccines:

This is a completely expected thing to happen since it is a frequent development with infections, this is exactly why the vaccines (that expose the body to a million times less amount of this protein) are hugely safer when compared with the natural infection and why preventing this infection is the only rational thing, thanks for bringing more evidence of why this is important to do and why vaccines should be enforced.

Another reason why not to get vaccinated. The unknown possibility to end up with deadly clots with the chance of having a Anaphylaxis Shock? Not enough Clinical Trials prove the safety of this vaccine?

Oxycodin..... Did you read the article? Can you understand numbers?

16 from 8,000,000... had clots. Even IF these were caused by the vaccine, which is uncertain, the benefit still FAR outweighs the tiny, tiny risk.

sorry i only understand binary and hex.... @Mr Kipling.

the benefit still FAR outweighs the tiny, tiny risk

That is really something that interests also me now. If someone developed those clots and died from, what exactly is the far outweighing benefit for such a person? If you could kindly name one or more.... lol

I had Covid already... it was nothing. No chance I'm risking a vaccination.
