    The evidence for the clotting potential of the vaccine is not particularly strong at this point. The incidence of clotting events is not any higher than would be expected in a control (unvaccinated) population. On the other hand, the incidence of clotting events in covid patients is very high and often fatal, to the point that anticlotting agents are often part of the treatment at this time. Ya pays your money and ya takes your chances…

    Probably not. An article in January’s Scientific American provided some evidence that COVID infections can interfere with the inhibition of the blood clotting process. The upshot was blood clots form more readily in these people. Perhaps this is what has been observed in the A-Z vaccine, even though the clot occurrence frequency of this problem is about the same as in the population at large.

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C., March 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) recommends that all eligible adults continue to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations, despite the recent decisions by Denmark, Norway and Iceland to at least temporarily suspend the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine due to reports of thrombosis.

    At this time, the small number of reported thrombotic events relative to the millions of administered COVID-19 vaccinations does not suggest a direct link. Thrombotic events are common in the general population and have not previously been associated with vaccination. At present, we do not know whether the timing of the blood clots with vaccination is coincidental or whether vaccination may in rare cases increase the risk of thrombosis. Importantly, well-conducted clinical trials of COVID-19 vaccinations did not identify an increased risk of thrombosis.

    The COVID-19 vaccine is given as an injection into the upper arm (intramuscular). Individuals taking direct oral anticoagulation (apixaban, dabigatran, edoxaban and rivaroxaban), warfarin in therapeutic INR range, full dose heparin or fondaparinux injections can all receive the COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccinating prior to the next dose of anticoagulant may be considered rather than immediately after taking the blood thinner.

    If you read the fine print that accompanies every prescription you would think that you are risking your life if you just open the package. I had reactions to two different prescribed eye drops that the doctors said few people have. Forced me to have the 30 second in-office (and expensive) laser treatment.

    It would be better and more “freedom loving” if the disclosures were provided in plain language so an individual decision can be made.

    COVID or one or more side effects?
