Thrombosis And Bleeding After Astra Zeneca Covid Vaccine, Worse then Has Been Claimed

 BMJ

This study has been able to give a better understanding of the excess population risks after immunisation. The risk of thrombosis at 11 excess events per 100 000 vaccinations  are higher than estimated by the European Medicines Agency. The EMA estimates the risk of thrombosis to be between 1 and 2 per 100 000 people, depending on age. [2] But what this study and what the EMA are measuring are not the same. Pottegård and colleagues used only ICD-10 codes and so have not been able to identify confirmed cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia, which is the syndrome specifically linked to vaccination. Similarly, Pottegård and colleagues would likely not have been able to identify thrombosis in people who had not had a vaccine and who were primarily admitted for covid-19 and might not have been investigated for thrombotic events, or had those events recorded under a primary diagnosis of covid-19. Nevertheless, Pottegård and colleagues’ study does suggest that the risk of thromboembolic events after the covid-19 vaccine might be higher than suggested by pharmacovigilance reporting in either the UK or European safety monitoring schemes.  

Quick recap: The risk of thrombosis after vaccine is in excess of 11 events per 100,000 vaccinations. What is commonly claimed is about 1 per 100,000. That's the usual claim here in Canada.

On the other hand, Pottegård and colleagues found 15 deaths from all causes after vaccination with the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine compared with an expected 44 deaths. They argue that some of this reduced death rate after vaccination could be due to a healthy worker effect. [3,4] A large proportion of the people in Denmark and Norway who received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine were healthcare workers. Apparently, this vaccine was not generally rolled out to vulnerable adults younger than 65. However, the magnitude of this differencea standardised ratio of just 0.34 (95% confidence interval 0.19 to 0.57)is greater than would be expected from previous studies of the healthy worker effect. [3,4] Furthermore, of those who received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, more would have received it because they were at an increased occupational risk of covid-19 infection and death. [5] Indeed, nurses and care workers generally have a relatively higher chance of dying from covid-19 and all causes than many other workers, irrespective of covid-19. [5] 

Pottegård and colleagues’ study improves our understanding of the population risk of thromboembolic events after the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, although given that the authors were unable to identify the specific cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia this must still remain uncertain. 

Nevertheless, the study does suggest that such thromboembolic adverse events after receiving the vaccine are likely to be more common than estimates based on pharmacovigilance reporting systems. 

The authors still push the risk is worth it meme. That's for each individual to decide.

Data Misdirection/Redirection? More dying of flu than Covid as coronavirus deaths plunge to lowest level in seven months

 DO NOT MISS..

THE LATEST

 It's the vaccine, that can't reduce transmission making all the difference. Right? Wrong?

No, it's fudging the numbers?- More dying of flu then covid?

But, but, I thought social distancing and masks vanquished the flu? Wrong, again!

Weekly registered deaths involving coronavirus in England and Wales are at their lowest level for seven months, figures show.

Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows that deaths from Covid are down 28 per cent on last week and are at the lowest number since the week ending September 25.

Deaths caused by Covid were at 260 - but it was only listed as the underlying cause for 176 people.

This is compared to 278 deaths listed for flu and pneumonia - however this was mentioned on 1,203 death certificates.

Creative accounting, right? Cooking the books. It's all data manipulation. Just like Covid counts

Vaccine Induced Blood Clot Death- Alberta, Canada- Vaccine Death Count @ 3. Obviously, More Cases Then Have Been Acknowledged ..

 I was just writing the other day that their had to be more of these cases then is being acknowledged, in Canada,  by the misleading media! Just the other day..

I've documented 8 cases here

Ontario  last acknowledged 3 cases, though I suspect that is higher.  3 in Quebec. There was one in Alberta and 1 in New Brunswick that I’m aware of. Making that 8 VITT’s in Canada.I do NOT believe for a second that is all the cases. British Columbia has to have at least one.What about Manitoba? Statistically speaking there has to be more.

I was correct.  We now have a woman, dead. (The first case I'd covered involved a man in Alberta)

Therefore there have been at least 9 cases of VITT in Canada linked just to Astra Zeneca- There is most definitely more then that!

CTV :

 This was the second of three confirmed fatal cases of vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) in Canada and only death in Alberta linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine.

It had been reported the first death was the woman in Quebec.  The Alberta case is the second of 3 deaths. And the third case?

The other two involved a 54-year-old woman in Quebec in late April and a woman in her 60s in New Brunswick on Wednesday.

Do notice as well that this is the only case in Alberta linked to the Astra Zeneca vaccine. Which begs the question were their other deaths linked to other vaccines? In Alberta? And the rest of Canada?

We have confirmed Alberta's first death, but, how many cases of VITT for AZ? From other vaccines?


 

And the response below is bizarre! What kind of mindset would one have to make this comment? 

It's "unfortunate" someone died, but some have to die so others might not? So some deaths are okay - Like from a vaccine. But other deaths are tragic and have to be prevented even if it means some  other people die. Keeping in mind the vast majority of deaths were of the elderly with multiple comorbidities- Just the facts

It has to be the bigger picture? We can't save everyone? No we can't. That's the reality. Viruses always have the potential to kill. But vaccines.. vaccines are supposed to prevent illness and this is not the case. Ward Nicholson, that's some serious cognitive dissonance.

 

According to Ms Hinshaw Alberta administered about 235,000 injections

According to Hinshaw, 253,000 doses of AstraZeneca or CoviShield have been administered in the province to date.

So two VITT's confirmed in Alberta. One dead. One unknown?  (we can see that 1case in just over every 100,000) and smart money tells me- That isn't all of them!

 To all the Ward Nicholson's and others who suffer some weird bizarre cognitive dissonance.. Ya know, bigger picture and all that!

The 52 year old woman that died, was the only child her parents had and she leaves behind a 19 year old daughter herself.  She is now without mother and father. Think about that, okay?

'She deserved more': Alberta's first death linked to AstraZeneca

Family and friends say her name was Lisa Stonehouse, a 52-year-old mother from Edmonton.

She deserved more,” Wilfred Lowenberg said.

Lowenberg told CTV News he’s the godfather to Stonehouse's 19-year-old daughter, Jordan, and was a best friend of her late father, Morrie Stonehouse.

According to him, Lisa received her first shot of AstraZeneca on April 21 and developed an adverse reaction shortly after.

“She was an amazing woman,” Lowenberg said.

“She put everyone first ahead of herself, especially her daughter.

“Probably the best, one of the best mother's I've ever seen.”

"Her daughter didn't deserve this, and neither did her parents.

“Her parents lost their only daughter, and no parent should have to suffer through that, just as no child of Jordan's age should have to lose both her parents before the age of 20."

Trudeau Smears Anti Lockdown Protest (Association Fallacy) Took the Knee at BLM protests. No Hypocrisy is To Great for This "Leader"

 Trudeau: Anti Lockdown Protests Undermine Their Own Objective???

 Actually, they don't. It's very clear that it is Lockdowns that are prolonging the pandemic (There is, in fact, data that backs that up)  The lockdowns that are adding an additional burden of stress, unemployment and mass impoverishment into the mix.

Therefore, since their objective is to end the lockdowns- they are not undermining their own objective. By calling for an end to lockdowns these people also want to end the severe stress, unemployment, drug overdose increase and mass impoverishment that has been occurring. Which would undoubtedly increase general immunity among us all.

Trudeau smears the movement with a statement that he cannot substantiate in any way shape or form. Using association fallacy

 Association fallacy

An association fallacy is an informal inductive fallacy of the hasty-generalization or red-herring type and which asserts, by irrelevant association and often by appeal to emotion, that qualities of one thing are inherently qualities of another. 

The ultimate hypocrisy/double standard from Justin (virtue signalling) Trudeau 

"“These protests are supposed to be about getting back to normal, but by spreading the virus, they do just the opposite and prolong lockdowns,” Trudeau told reporters on Tuesday."


Does he offer any proof that the protests have "spread the virus"Of course he hasn't!  Because he can't. Just smears. Aspersion. Red Herring. Guilt by Association. Logical Fallacy. It's all Trudeau has got- He's empty handed.  Let's recall Trudeau at the BLM protests...
