Blood clots:For most people currently being offered the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, the benefits clearly outweigh the risks.

Interesting analysis: 

AstraZeneca vaccine: How do you weigh up the risks and benefits? https://www.bbc.co.**/news/explainers-56665396
"Ten deaths out of 10 million people vaccinated is a one-in-a-million chance. 
That's roughly the same risk as being murdered in the next month or - if you get in a car and drive for 250 miles - the risk of you dying in a road accident on that journey."  
Saw this article being discussed this AM on BBC news.

    Well, since most of us are on blood thinners anyway, it is a non issue. 😏

    Thank you TwoWheels,  I should of thought of that immediately, but such a hot topic on BBC news or European arena I did not. Yes, i'm on Xarelto 20mg since last Feb again. 

    Again meaning that I was on Xarelto long long time ago 2015-2016-2017 then off. But i'm got my two doses of Pfizer /Biotech Jabs the last Vax just Marh 29th. No SE's to speak of. So I am safe or at least 94-95% protected...

    Thanks, TwoWheels(protected blood thinner AFIB freind)
