    Nah more countries are going back / delaying their opening plans. It all depends on vaccination vs delta virus.. which is quicker.

    So I currently feel like s---.

    Persistent cough
    Fatigue
    Aches
    Change in taste

    Ben getting myself tested every day for Covid and each test is negative. Plus double vaccine. So it's just a s-----y flu but man I feel crap. And having a coughing fit in public is HORRIBLE! Everyone looks at you and you know exactly what they're thinking...
    Some women even gave me a cough sweet today!

    vaccines are incredibly safe. Every study conducted looking at these vaccines have proven that. Not only that but tens of millions of people have already taken the vaccine in the past 6+ months. If there were any extreme adverse life threatening side effects, we would know by now.

    I don't think anyone is saying it's not possible for someone to get adverse or even deadly side effects from this or any vaccine. It absolutely does and has happened with this vaccine and probably all vaccines that have ever existed. However, that doesn't mean that the vaccine is unsafe in general. It's always possible for someone to have an adverse reaction to all kinds of medicine—it's always risk vs. reward. A small percentage of people get suicidal thoughts from anti-depressants, but that doesn't mean anti-depressants are unsafe.

    From the article you posted:

    1 in 100,000 is 0.001%. Then the article goes on to say:

    So it's a 0.001% chance to develop ITP in the first place. Of that very small number, 33% of them won't develop any symptoms, and only 5% will develop severe bleeding. So all-in-all, that's a 0.00005% chance of having a severe reaction.

    So, to put that into terms without percentages/fractions: 1 in 100,000 = 20 in 2,000,000. 5% of 20 is 1.

    TLDR: 1 in 2 million people vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vax will develop severe bleeding from ITP. That's an extremely small number of people, and they're still taking it seriously and investigating it. J&J stopped administering their vax after six people developed blood clots. They take side effects very seriously.

    So when I read this, I don't come to the conclusion that the vaccine is unsafe. I come to the conclusion that people who are susceptible to blood clots/ITP/etc. shouldn't get the vaccine, or should talk to a specialist before getting it.

    I don't follow the maths, wouldn't it be 5% of 20 = 1 like you said but then you have to do that to the 2 million as well which is 100,000? Which is 1 in 100,000 which the article said already? Or am I missing something?

    But yeah 2 people so far (iirc) died from the vaccine in aus out of 2 million(?) . Our population is like 24 mill and 911 died so far

    Sorry I know I probably didn’t write that out in the easiest to follow way cuz I was crunching the numbers as I went lol

    So 1 in 100K people will get ITP.

    Out of the people who develop ITP, 5% will get severe bloodclotting which would be 0.05 people in 100k.

    I multiplied them both by 20 cuz you can’t have 0.05 people/5% of one person and I think putting it in terms of human lives is more meaningful than a percentage.

    0.05 x 20 = 1
    100k x 20 = 2 million

    (anyone with an actual math background feel free to check my work cuz I’m words person not a numbers person lol)

    I’m not sure how I f----- this up but I left off some zeroes. 1 in 100,000 is actually 0.00001% and 5% of that is 0.0000005%. The 1 in 2 million is still correct I believe

    Still no zombies? Good.

    Off topic slightly of vaccines but still Covid...

    An interesting fact from the press conference from our Government when they announced the confirmation of "Freedom Day";
    97.3% of confirmed cases are the Delta variant, a variant which was "a variant of concern" only a few months ago. Why is this interesting? Because that means less than 2% of 50odd thousand cases were the original strain. Which means it's dying. So if (and that's a big IF) it doesn't carry on mutating then Covid could one day die out and just simply not exist.

    But viruses mutate so there's nothing to suggest this would be any different.
