Our research is out in ⁦@bmj_latest⁩ today: “Comparative risk of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome or thromboembolic events associated with different covid-19 vaccines: international network cohort study from 5 Eur countries and the US” bmj.com/content/379/bm…
This is to our knowledge the 1st international study of #covidvaccine compartive safety. We studied the risk of thrombosis and/or thrombocytopenia in the 28d after adenovirus- vs mRNA-based vax in DE, ES, FR, NL, UK, and the US
The study included 1 ,332 ,719 first dose ChAdOx1-S recipients matched to 2 ,124 ,339 BNT162b2 recipients. Additionally, 762 517 people receiving Ad26.COV2.S were matched to 2 ,851 ,976 receiving BNT162b2. And 628 ,164 Ad26.COV2.S matched to 2 ,230 ,157 mRNA-1273 recipients

New paper out today @JTHjournal : "Genetic risk and incident venous thromboembolism in middle-aged and older adults following #COVID19 vaccination" . A short 🧵
1/n) Some #COVIDvaccines have been associated with increased risk of blood clots (VTE). We wanted to understand if genetic predisposition to VTE would predict risk of post-vaccine VTE, and if vaccination interacted with underlying genetics
2/n) We used data from @uk_biobank to investigate this, linking genetics, vaccination and health outcomes information. We generated a polygenic risk score using known variants, and studied associations between PRS and incident VTE immediately after vaccination, and historically

Most of the very extensive data showing that #CovidVaccines are safe and effective in #pregnancy was collected in the general rollout.

Is this okay? Shouldn’t we have trial data?

Let’s talk about the ethics of vaccine trials in pregnancy! 🧵…

drive.google.com/file/d/1_wHIYX…
First, let’s note that we do have some data on pregnancy from the COVID vaccine trials. Participants were asked not to become pregnant, but some did by accident. The outcomes for these pregnancies were monitored as part of the trials, with no concerns emerging. 2/
Because…

1. What little data we had was reassuring

2. What we know of 💉 biology suggested there would not be any problems in 🤰🏻

3. COVID 🦠 *does* cause problems in pregnancy

… some countries 🇺🇸 🇮🇱 opted to offer the 💉 and let 🤰🏻 decide

am starting to prepare the data from our #vaccineinjuries #PostVacSyndrome survey for analysis today

just having a look at the raw data output and this stands out. most participants report no health problem that affected their day-to-day living prior to the offending vaccine screenshot of a survey question: Before getting the COVID19 Screenshot of survey question asking: "After the COVID1
after the offending vax general health was reduced to being very poor

even those who had no indication something could go wrong, who led completely unrestricted lives, had their world turned upside down after vaccination
many already chronically ill folk seem to have on their mind that they might react badly (and there was a distinct lack of chronic illness patients in trials), and indeed it seems ME and long COVID patients have a high prevalence of severe reactions (maybe around 20 %).

At @sciencebasedmed this morning, contrary to the false messaging of lawmakers promoting laws criminalizing such care for gender dysphoria and trans adolescents, gender-affirming care is NOT experimental.sciencebasedmedicine.org/gender-affirmi…
I'm going to say it again. The claims by the "gender critical" and by the ideologues promoting laws criminalizing gender-affirming care that such care is "experimental" is straight from the antivax playbook. 2/
Long ago, antivaxxers were claiming that the childhood vaccination schedule is "experimental," or at least "not evidence-based." That was false. 3/ sciencebasedmedicine.org/are-recommende…

New paper published in ⁦@bmj_latest⁩ : “Association between covid-19 vaccination, SARS-CoV-2 infection, and risk of immune mediated neurological events: population based cohort and self-controlled case series analysis”. A 🧵 bmj.com/content/376/bm…
1) previous reports and research have suggested an association between some #CovidVaccines and immune neurological conditions including facial paralysis and Guillain-Barré syndrome. We had access to unique data to study this, and to research if #COVID19 itself can cause these
2) we studied data from Catalonia and the UK, including over 8 million vaccinated, 0.5m #covid19, & >14 million unvaccinated uninfected (historical data). We estimated rates of neuroimmune events post-vaccine and post-infection, and compared these to background (expected) rates

70 presidents and prime ministers from Europe and Africa are arriving right now for day 2 of the #EUAUSummit in Brussels.

The big-picture geopolitical context: #Europe is trying to convince #Africa to choose them as a partner instead of #China.
European and African leaders have just held a press conference announcing a compromise on the issue of #Covid19Vaccines and IP rights.

The EU will set up technology transfer hubs in Africa to scale up production. But this falls short of the #TRIPSwaiver African countries wanted.
"We’re doing this in the right order," insists Macron.

"We first donated doses, now we’re launching these technology transfer hubs so we can develop the manufacturing sites for MRNA manufacture...Then we need the purchasing commitment."

I'm with @JHowardBrainMD about #covidvaccines for children. I'd go one further. The arguments @BallouxFrancois uses against vaccinating children against #COVID19 are exactly the same as the ones antivaxxers used to justify not vaccinating against measles. sciencebasedmedicine.org/unkind-largely…
Indeed, even the numbers involved are very similar, ~1,200 children dead of #COVID19 over two years compared to a toll of around ~500 children/year killed by measles before the measles vaccine was introduced.
No, I'm not saying that @BallouxFrancois. I am, however, pointing out that he is definitely parroting antivaccine rhetoric, probably unknowingly.

1. Billions of patients have now received #mRNA #COVIDvaccines. First found in 1956 by Elliot Volkin and Lazarus Astrachan, this series of tweets covers the many decades it took for mRNA to emerge as a medical tool whatisbiotechnology.org/index.php/scie…
2. The development of #mRNA for medical applications was not a smooth linear path and involved many different players, a number of whom struggled to get recognition and funding for their work and faced bruising patent battles.
Originally discovered as a result of a search to understand how DNA directs the formation of proteins within a cell, in the early 1970s Yasuhiro Furuich and Aaron Shatkin discovered a specific cap structure that prevented the degradation of mRNA.

It seems the fastest way to get covid is to get vaccinated.

If you have been vaccinated and were subsequently infected with covid, how many days after your jab did you test positive?
@timspector have you done any analysis of this nature on breakthrough infections via ZOE?

Some great news about vaccine uptake. Amidst all the focus on #BoosterJab, thousands of people have also come forward for their 1st and 2nd jabs. Around 90% of over 12s have had 1st dose and ~82% of over 12s have now had both doses. #NHSheroes bbc.co.uk/news/health-59…
But here's the thing: ~10.2% of over-12s have yet to have any vaccine. One year on with #CovidVaccines and there is still *no national trusted website* which tackles FAQs on vaccines. Fantastic examples of outreach by dedicated NHS staff, but govt needs to address misinformation
And let's not forget children in our race to get the public vaccinated. Despite millions of 5-11yr olds in the US, Europe and elsewhere already protected with 1 #covidvaccine, the UK has yet to agree on rollout. And up to 19 Dec, fewer than half of 12-15yos had received one dose.

This is a very old antivax trope. Antivaxxers have been claiming that vaccines cause infertility for as long as I can remember since I first started paying attention to the antivaccine movement. Unfortunately, this claim resonates. The disinformation works. 1/
It worked in Kenya in 2014, when antivaxxers claimed that the tetanus vaccine caused infertility in young women. 2/ respectfulinsolence.com/2014/11/13/cat…
It worked in Nigeria in 2004, when an antivax crank claimed that the polio vaccine was contaminated with "sterilizing agents."3/
