How can we be most rational about rare adverse events after vaccination? I discussed the risk of #GuillainBarre syndrome after the @JNJNews #vaccine with @ShyannMalone this morning. Some thoughts in this thread (1/n)
2. I have been speaking with several "on the fence" people. Not yet vaccinated, not fully opposed to vaccination. They are all intelligent, thoughtful individuals. They can quote me the numbers in terms of risk, and acknowledge the very low risk of adverse events post-vaccine.

#polio, let's go right to the beginning to understand that vaxx did nothing to eradicate it. So what is polio? In simple terms it is the inflammation of the gray matter of the spinal cord. It can also occur in the brainstem. Image

We've also been conditioned to believe that polio was wide-spread, which actually is not the case at all. Naturally existing poliovirus was a common bowel inhabitant for
millennia, always there, continuously circulating through humans,
but never causing paralysis. Image
