OTTAWA -- A Quebec woman is the first in Canada to develop a blood clot after being vaccinated with the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
The news came as Health Canada said it was investigating reports of clots linked to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the United States.
The Quebec health ministry and Public Health Agency of Canada reported the event connected to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine Tuesday.
Quebec says the female patient, whose age was not revealed, received the appropriate care and is recovering at home.
The woman received the vaccine produced at the Serum Institute of India, known as Covishield.
Health Canada asked AstraZeneca for a full risk assessment of its vaccine after reports of similar clots in Europe, but says the side effect is extremely rare and the vaccine's benefits still outweigh its risks.
More than 700,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered in Canada and the risk of getting blood clots from COVID-19 itself is far higher than from the vaccine.
That's playing fast and loose with reality- First you'd have to contract covid. Then you'd have to be in the tiny percentile that actually gets extremely ill and then you'd have to be in the tiny percentile that actually gets bloodclots in YOUR LEGS. Largely because you are laying in bed for an extended period of time.
The clots associated with the vaccine are in your brain.
What’s the connection between COVID-19 and blood clots?
It’s not yet clear how or why COVID-19 is causing blood clots to form, Dr. Tsuang says. But there does seem to be a connection. One study in Amsterdam found that nearly one-third of people hospitalized with severe cases of COVID-19 had complications from blood clots.
Why are clots a risk for hospitalized patients?
Clots are most likely to arise in the blood vessels of the legs. People in the hospital are at higher risk, Dr. Tsuang explains.
“When you’re in the hospital, you’re not up and moving around, so blood moves more slowly through the legs. That makes clots more likely to form.”
As you can read we're talking about two very different situations- The media is failing to mention that important information as they plan to deceive.
Earlier today the United States also paused use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine following reports of six similar blood clots, and Health Canada says it has asked the drugmaker for more information on that vaccine as well.

So in short, in our small community of Lytton, BC, we have one person dead, and three people who look as though they will be permanently disabled, following their first dose of the Moderna vaccine. The age of those affected ranges from 38 to 82 years of age.
