    The AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine causes blood clots as a short term effect
    The medium and long term side effects are unknown.

    The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are only beginning studies into short term side effects now?
    Millions have been vaccinated already!
    Again, the medium and long term side effects are unknown.

    Now, think about the facts and the COVID-19 fatality rate by age:
    10-19 years 0.2%
    20-29 years 0.2%
    30-39 years 0.2%
    40-49 years 0.4%
    50-59 years 1.3%
    60-69 years 3.6%
    70-79 years 8.0%
    80-89 years 14.8%
    As you can see from the factual scientific data does not correspond with the fear factor generated by the media.
    The odds of you getting a fatal reaction is minimal up to the age of 60 and increases at 70 and 80!
    Hence, common sense to vaccinate over 60’s and if you want to be extra safe even the over 50’s.
    Herd immunity will then occur naturally over the younger generations.
    However, mass vaccinate of young, middle adults is questionable and now children is suspicious according to the above factual data!

    The fact of the matter is the vaccine has been rushed and if there are consequences of injury it may be wide spread to the global human population.
