N_, you are parading your innumeracy and flaunting your anti-scientific prejudice. You say not to trust “eckshpurts”, but also say this:
– “Do” [blah blah rhetorical blah] “before anybody should even consider the possibility that it might be safer NOT to accept this vaccine?”
Well why don’t you do the sums yourself then? It’s not hard. In fact, a wild guestimate will do. If, following millions of vaccinations there have been tens of cases of blood clots including a handful of deaths, whereas millions of cases of covid have resulted in tens of thousands of deaths, then even if all these blood clots are caused exclusively by the AZ vaccine, and the vaccine is say only 10% effective, it’s still hundreds of times safer to take the vaccine than not to.
The fact that you neglect to do the maths and instead leap to misleading rhetoric marks you out as an anti-vaxxer.
Then there’s this:
– “It is a fact that the government are pushing vaccination even on those who are known to be immune because like the prime minister himself…”
This is wrong on two counts:
1) The experience in Manaus, Brazil demonstrates that covid often does not impart immunity.
2) Vaccination stimulates far stronger antibody production than covid itself does.
And you’re not even honest. You dismiss “eckshpurts”, but parrot what they say if they happen to reinforce your preferred message. You do precisely what you’re accusing others of doing, and that’s hypocritical.
