They're being super cautious.What is the latest European guidance on AZ? The last I heard, Germany has stopped using it for anyone under 60.
Germany has paused the use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine for people under the age of 60 following concerns about rare blood clots.www.euronews.com
No doubt I'd go for Pfizer or Moderna, All my relatives got them, some back in January and no one reported any side effects.... but the situation with AZ looks very fishy .... ihmo, it would be banned in Canada all together if we wouldn't get 1.5M from US....My younger relatives who got the "Pfizer" vaccine suffered migraines. So I guess headaches (even strong ones) are nothing new.
I'd also get Pfizer 100%, my question is specific to AZ.Yes.
Over 60. Got our first shot last 10 days ago. Was not certain what we would get but were were both willing to take any one of the three. It was Pfizer.
I think you are misinterpreting the danger of COVID.I;m much more scared from AZ that from Covid itself.... esp after my daughter got it (she finish 10 days quarantine couple of days ago) and described it like mild cold.
james, imho, you are exaggerating ... I know couple of dozens people who had Covid (among my relatives and friends), only 1 visited for short time hospital ... for other it was like a flu...I think you are misinterpreting the danger of COVID.
As I mentioned, I know 4 people who caught COVID (very young people) and two of them ended up in hospital. And one of the 4 had virtually nothing happen to him.
Hospitals across Canada are full of rather young, healthy people who have serious COVID. If you are over age 25, you should be worried about the disease.
You are talking as if 772,000 people caught COVID. That's not what happened. Only a small number of people caught COVID, and 135 were hospitalized.Just check life stats in Mississauga.... with population 722,000 , in my age bracket 50-59 , just 135 ever hospitalized (not even ICU) = 0.018% and 11 deaths = 0.0015% . this is extremely low
I completely understand .....but now, when I can book and get AZ in 1 hours....I'm kinda anxious . and I've never been anxious from fear to get Covid...This is really easy. If you are comfortable with the vaccine, whichever one, then take it.
If not don't. It is a personal decision. Everyone has an opinion. Decide and move forward. Just because we were vaccinated, or vaccinated with Pfizer does not in any way suggest that we are urging others to do the same or that our decision was the right one. It was right for us.
Depends what are looking for.... In order to get to Hospital, you first need to get Covid and it's only 0.018%...You are talking as if 772,000 people caught COVID. That's not what happened. Only a small number of people caught COVID, and 135 were hospitalized.
The important question is, among people who catch COVID, how many end up in hospital?
