I'm a 42 year old woman. I've spent large portions of my life on birth control methods with a FAR higher chance of a blood clot than this vaccine - 1 in 1,000 risk of a clot with a 1 in 100,000 fatal embolism rate - and I've taken that risk, variously, once a day every day, once a day for 21 days a month and once every 3 months, for at least two decades. I didn't need to take the pill. My partners could have taken ownership of contraception (any men stressing about these clots needs to get their partners off the pill). It's a choice. That MANY women make, eyes wide open. So the under 50 year old women I know are not bricking it, or even talking about it. Women on HRT have a 58% higher chance of a blood clot. We women of all ages are well used to medicines with clot risks - and we know that one of the biggest risks of catching a non-fatal dose of covid for us is, also, blood clots. There's a higher chance of us catching covid right now and getting a clot, than dying of a vaccine clot.
The only chatter I've seen is women worried they won't get the second dose because it's delisted in the meantime, leading to sliding back down the covid snake to the start, requiring re-vaccinating.
Thanks for the commentary. Nae worries, your body your choice.
We see lots of guesstimates of clot/death rates, requiring with the normal pinch of salt mind, given weeks ago we started off with "not a snowball's chance in hell, safe as houses" to "one in a few million" the other week, then odds were down (according to Jezza Vine's "medical experts") to about "1 in a mill".
Within a few days even Auntie's droppped it to 1:250k now.
Perhaps next week it will be even more common, who knows, with rushed funky nouvelle technology? Science works by this route, so forgive me if I'll wait for the jury to be in, next year before sticking a neck out with predictions... Predictions over the last month proved hollow.
I don't follow the chatter you get exposed to I'm interested whether there any clarity from your sources about whether actual CV19 is exacerbated by long-term synchem ingestion (pills etc.) or if folk suffering from so-called "long covid" are "synchem-free"? Just interested, even in anecdotes, given I've a material interest.
Re-vacccination for young women sounds suspiciously like a zero-Covid strategy when clearly there are other more pressing issues. Still I guess the plan is to get used to this new strange normal.
