Sinovac uses old technology (inactivated virus) so you should be safe taking that one!

With such a small amount of deaths to Covid in Thailand why would you risk it?  I know of 1 person for sure that has died from a blood clot after having the astra zeneca jab. But it's not being r

The latest UK government data on adverse reactions from 09 December 2020 (AZ 04 January 2021) to 07 March 2021 from the Astra Zeneca  and Pfizer vaccine can be found here:

 

 

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine adverse reactions

 

 

 

Please note these are stated as ‘reactions to’ not ‘events following’

 

 

 

Adverse Reports Astra Zeneca

 

Adverse Reports Pfizer

 

 

 

AZ fatal               289

 

Pfizer fatal         237

 

Total                    526

 

Number of people jabbed to 07 March about 24 million so about 1 death per 46,000

 

https://www.bbc.com/news/health-55274833

 

 

 

Total to 11 Feb was 323 out of around 14 million or 1 death in 43,000  so in the last month 203 fatal per 10 million jabs or 1 death per 49,000.  Fatal outcomes are much the same despite younger and presumably healthier people being jabbed.  This is worrying but 1 in 49,000 chance of dying is very low and we don’t know whether they did have existing health conditions.

 

 

 

The chance of dying from COVID  if you catch it is said to be 0.3% or 1 in 333, clearly a very much higher risk.

 

 

 

But what are the chances of catching COVID?  For this the best model was the case of the Diamond Princess cruise ship last February.  There was no social distancing, no masks, no hand sanitiser etc. so transmission control was almost non-existent in an enclosed environment and yet only 19% of people, went down with the virus – 712 out of 3,711 with only around half of those displaying symptoms.  Only 14 died.  Yes, very sad for them and their families but that is 0.4% which is pretty similar to the 99.7% survival rate quoted so often. And cruise ship passengers are hardly spring chickens.  Only 14% of the crew caught it and none died. 

 

 

 

So if we factor in the 19% chance of catching COVID then the risk of dying from COVID becomes 1 in 1,750 which is still a much higher risk than dying from the vaccine by a factor of about 28.

 

 

 

For myself I would rather rely on my immune system bolstered by vitamin C and D than any rushed vaccine as I believe I have less chance of a bad reaction to COVID than a vaccine over the short term.  Long term, who knows, the experts seem to not know or disagree.  Each individual needs to make their own decision.

 

 

The issue is that 0.3% chance of dying is across ALL age and health groups. If you are older and/or have health conditions, your risk of death is significantly higher.

 

You might wonder if you are at not at risk why should you take it? You risk spreading it to those that are not inoculated yet and/or those that refuse to take it and prolonging the pandemic.

I will wait for the Gold Standard Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, thank you from a private hospital. 

 

Yes, me, too.

Not interested in the AZ, Russian, or Chinese vaccines.

They are doing under 60’s first. Says so in the article. That’s the “sorry but”. Nothing at all to do with macron or anyone else elsewhere in the world.

that was my point - why ?

Where did you dig up this "fact", only thing I've ever seen is annual boosters (like flu jabs) being muted as a possibility?

More fake news from pacman an unqualified keyboard warrior!  The adverse rumour about Astra was spread by Macron, (followed by Merkle) who has made such an outstanding nonesense of innoculations that he had to find someone else to blame.  He is without doubt a first class idiot and I am convinced that the French People will not vote this Mummy's Boy back in power.  Sadly he does not realise that most of the World can see right through his rediculous ploy.

They are offering what seem to be the 2 most controversial vaccines Astrazeneca and Sinovac.

Good luck to those expats in Phuket.

Astra Zeneca is controversial as there has been signs of blood clotting . What is controversial about Sinovac ?

I agree your first point hence I stated each individual should make thier own decision.

 

As I understand it none of the vaccines claim to stop you catching COVID, they claim to reduce the symptoms especially severe cases so your second point is not correct.

Most people who get vaccines or medication during their lifetimes never ask where it comes from or for sure never realistically check the paperwork always included which discusses, amongst other things, potential side effects etc. Every medication has a potential for side effects but the numbers are tiny so why suddenly look so closely and be scared by the same tiny numbers involved in Covid 19 vaccines, a vaccine, which like other vaccines, has been proven to work.

are you joking or is it serious ?

You don't know the difference between a vaccine and a genetic technology ? What are you talking about ? The reality is not so simple as you seems to be able to thinking about it.

Mme Henrion Caude, who know better than you or me, or any other there, explain that this pretty new technology (that she is an eminent world wide recognized to be a specialist of the genetic things concerned)  was done so quick that they remove 6 proceed step tests necessary to pretend to be safe. Not one, not two... SIX !

So, if you pretend (to much i think) to have some little knowledge around this concerned things, please, show us instead of spread fakes.

Do not panic, people who panic easy are the one who make the boat sick to over charge the problem instead of provide any solutions. We can have opinions, but we can not pretend seriously that this opinion is upper than facts.

These 6 proceed step missing are not an opinion though... this is fact.

Hope you can split what is a fact and what is an opinion for you can see better and stop to denigrate people around.

After said that, to think that it is a good idea to spread widely a new technology that has be poor tested, it is an opinion (that i can respect as you do what you want with YOUR life), but please, do not deny facts and spread fakes.

that's absolutely correct that after 70 years old and for those with excessive Cholesterol (or Diabetic) or very fragile ones, the risk increase considerably (i see it can goes up to 25% or mortality rate of the sick ones, not the infected ones... not the same).

 

For your second part, it is definitely wrong, and, as said, a mystification and a misunderstand of the problem for many reasons.

First, the virus mutated a lot (as other do usually) and no one can predict if the "vaccine" (even for the non-vaccine but genetic products) will be efficient for wide spectral mutated ones.

Second, you can be vaccinated and spread the virus. The idea that a vaccinated one doesn't spread the concerned virus is half wrong. It is half true if (in the same time) everybody vaccinated and vaccines are efficient and virus only have a life in humans body. So actually, no one know exactly any of these 3 conditions. So how can you pretend something no one can provide any demonstration ? i will never be persuaded, i prefer to be convinced, and without proof and with low indication, i can not reasonably be convinced by any vaccine or genetic products quickly made.

But... they have many products on the market now... feel free to to test them, but not enforce the other to follow you, please.

i would like to order a test for show how many don't need any vaccine and are immune alone.

There is many, but they don't speak about that...

Thank you I will be getting my vaccine. Hey i want my life to go back to normal and take off those  bloody face masks and i want to travel

Do you said that you feel in a kind of blackmail position ? And that you will submit, even if you have zero risk due to full immune condition ?

wow...

Who exactly are those 'experts' saying vaccination is an error? Every single statistic both from the trials and where it’s been rolled are favorable (even the blood clotting). You do understand comparative risk - where the risks of being vaccinated are far less than the risks of the real alternative of catching Covid ?

What is the risk of contracting and dying from Covid for those 60 and under?

The risk of contracting is high, as is the risk of spreading it to others, including risk categories.

“High” is the temperature I cook  bacon at and how I feel on returning from a night on the town.  It just lacks a certain mathematical/scientific precision.  It also does not seem an adequate definition of the risk of dying from Covid.

I am reminded of a statement heard many moons ago, at a time when short hair, shiny boots and green pullovers were "der rigeur".

 

"Ex is something which has been, a spurt is what happens when you put a drip under pressure"
