I get what you are saying, but how do we know whether safer vaccines can be made - it could be a bit of a pipe dream.This could be very bad news if people decide not to get vaccinated at all in too large numbers.
Development of further vaccines under development which could prove safer need to be encouraged.
For example The Flinders Uni guy who’s developing a Vaccine suggested that he’s using an older more proven method of developing a vaccine. That doesn’t necessarily mean it will be any safer, but still worth exploringI get what you are saying, but how do we know whether safer vaccines can be made - it could be a bit of a pipe dream.
with blood clots
So really, is there any point in AZ for over 50s and Pfizer for under 50s? Should it just be whatever is available for whoever turns up?
Quite possibly. Though clotting could well be a coincidence or just happening a little earlier than it would have happened anyway.So really, is there any point in AZ for over 50s and Pfizer for under 50s? Should it just be whatever is available for whoever turns up?
No but the cause of the rare blood clots is said to be associated with a cross reaction of spike protein antibodies with platelets.That is close to being called in covid positive patients with clots.Possible sure, but not widely accepted as proven - that could of course change.
Though here is a report from an American doctors group that accepts there is a risk with the mRNA vaccines.

It is quite possible that all covid vaccines might be associated with clotting.
Yes. Considering the spike protein is the likely cause. However deliberately infecting people who have had clotting from the vaccine would be extremely unethical so it could take some time before this can be fully verified.Is it possible that those who have developed the severe clotting reaction may also have reacted extremely poorly to an actual Covid infection?
So, possible. Did you read that back?
Not sure who "someone" is? Why not quote them?Someone keeps claiming its an accepted fact Pfizer causes the same rare clotting condition as AZ but thats simply not true.
I'm sure Dr Fauci wouldn't be my relevant arbiter of choice.The legitimacy of the yet to be peer reviewed study has been questioned by experts including Dr Fauci
But there is no absolute proof that nRNA vaccines do not cause VIPIT or are safer than AZ.huh?
Someone keeps claiming its an accepted fact Pfizer causes the same rare clotting condition as AZ but thats simply not true. The legitimacy of the yet to be peer reviewed study has been questioned by experts including Dr Fauci and examples of DVT are irrelevant as not what the concern with AZ is.
Possible it may be, but proven it is not. Really not that hard to understand.
