In Poland, two women in their 30's died shortly after being vaccinated with Astra. I will never ever get Astra or Johnson vaccine, only Pfizer or Moderna
Good for you. I had a choice of being vaccinated in March with AstraZeneca (GP had some leftover vaccines at the end of the day while doing the over 60s) or waiting until June (when it should have been my turn) to be vaccinated with an unknown vaccine, which could be any of them. I decided I'd rather be protected earlier. I do not get to request pfizer/moderna, the government decides for me. The odds of a blood clotting disorder from AZ are around 1 in 100,000 and then whether or not you die from it depends on getting prompt medical treatment. The odds of dying from covid for someone my age and with ibd are somewhere around 1 in 300. The odds of getting long-term problems following a covid infection are around 10%.
The difficulty is there is no way of knowing if those who had the reaction to the covid vaccine would have had a similar reaction to a covid infection (it's basically an over reaction of the immune system so it ends up attacking its own platelets).
It's easy to react with fear, but the best thing is presenting all information and then letting people make an informed choice. But in many countries we don't get a choice, you get the vaccine you're given.
