These data indicate that there were 4.8 ( 95% CI: 2.8-6.8 ) undiagnosed cases for every diagnosed case of COVID-19 during this same time period in the United States, and an estimated 16.8 million undiagnosed cases by mid-July 2020

AstraZeneca vaccine

But Britain’s officials, armed as usual with some nifty charts for their televised briefing, said that for people under 30 the risks and benefits from the vaccine were “finely balanced”, so a different jab may be preferable.

Risk from Covid is lower, while risk of clotting seems higher.

For unknown reasons, some people develop an immune reaction to heparin, which results in blood clotting so profound that it depletes their platelets. The same reaction appears to be provoked by the vaccine.

As I understand it the risk of clotting from HRT is still much much higher, and the risk of a bleed from taking asprin is also massively higher.

I read a headline today that some US states have a problem of a surplus of vaccines.

I think we are nearing the point where we need to be thinking about sharing some of our vaccine stockpiles with neighbors and allies who are in dire need and also engage in some vaccine diplomacy for the common good, provided that all US dependencies have been provided for.
