What you should know when signing up for the AstraZeneca vaccine

Here is a good write-up about what you need to know about the AstraZeneca (AZ) Covid-19 vaccine to help you decide whether you would like to sign up for it or not.

Click here for the article. Pay particular attention to the section on the possibility of blood clots as a side-effect.

In summary, the risk of a blood clot is very, very small. This blood clot risk decreases with increasing age, which is why the AZ vaccine is recommended only for those above 60 years old in some countries. However, there are also other countries that have not recommended the use of this vaccine at all for their populations.

The final decision is yours. No one can make this decision for you. Not even your doctor. If you feel that the benefits outweigh the risks, especially in this current surge, then go for it. If you feel otherwise, then don’t.
