1/ Risk of suffering serious blood clot after AstraZeneca jab doubles in fortnight
New data from the Medical Healthcare products and Regulatory Agency (MHRA) show cases have risen from 79 to 168 since April 8, and deaths from 19 to 32
2/ The risk of getting a blood clot has also gone up from one in 250,000 to around one in 126,600 – or a rise of four in a million to 7.9 in a million
3/ Earlier this month the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised that under-30s should be offered an alternative to the Oxford jab, because the risk no longer outweighed the benefits for younger people
4/ A source close to JCVI said the committee would be reviewing the new data carefully this week, to assess whether the risk was also still worth the benefit for older groups now that the chance of getting a blood clot had risen.

@ScottAdamsSays 1/ Dilbert, Here’s annual all-cause population & age-adjusted mortality for the United States since 1999, adjusted for US 2020 standard population. Comparisons absent those adjustments are MEANINGLESS. We’re back to where we were in 2003. It's obscene to invoke 1918 comparisons! Image
@ScottAdamsSays Dilbert, Here's the same basic phenomenon characterized for the UK. British Medical Journal: UK total mortality, age-standardized per 100,000 population, was lower in 2020, than rate in 2008, and every year before that dating back to 1943

1/CDC’s own C19 J&J vax “C19 death prevention models,” & actual recorded J&J vax “assoc” deaths, do NOT support mass cont’d vax of those < 50 yo. See Table: Image
2/ The number needed to treat (vax) for those <50yo to prevent one C19 death is ~87.4K, & the total “modeled” 44 C19 deaths prevented were accompanied by 21 real world J&J vax-“assoc” deaths
3/ In contrast, the number needed to treat (vax) for those 50+yo to prevent one C19 death is ~1.5K, & the total “modeled” 2683 C19 deaths prevented were accompanied by 107 real world J&J vax-“assoc” deaths

1/ Britain will "achieve C19 herd immunity" on Monday, 4/12/21 as natural acquired post-infection immunity, plus vaccine-induced immunity, will reach "73.4%" telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/04/0…
2/ "Last week, antibody testing by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggested that, in the week ending March 14th, around 54% of people in England already had antibodies to the virus"
3/ "Since then, a further 7.1 million people have received a first dose of vaccine and nearly 100,000 have tested positive for the virus, with many more acquiring a silent, asymptomatic infection."

1/ “The idea that everybody needs to be vaccinated [against C19] is as scientifically baseless as the idea that nobody does...The vaccine passport should therefore be understood not as an easing of restrictions but as a coercive scheme to encourage vaccination.”
2/ “Covid vaccines are essential for older, high-risk people and their caretakers and advisable for many others. But those who’ve been infected are already immune.”
3/ "The young are at low risk, and children—for whom no vaccine has been approved anyway—are at far less risk of death than from the flu”
