So there are 11 probable incidents of blood clotting following the administering of 1,400,000 doses, that is 1 in 127, 273.

According to the Federal Government web site there were 1,127 road deaths and 39,404 people admitted to hospital with road crash injuries in a 12 month period.

Taking the population of Australia as 25,478,000 the annual chance of being a road death is 1 in 22,607 that is, you are 5.6 times more likely to be killed in a road traffic accident than to get blood clotting from the AstraZenica vaccine.

Chris

You are making the false assumption that the risk of dying in a road crash is evenly distributed across everyone in the population. Yet we are repeatedly told by the police it is those who speed, drink drive, and undertake other reckless actions who are more likely to die on our roads. And the risk is further influenced by the time we spend behind the wheel, and where we drive (country roads, inner city, etc). The comparable risk rate of dying while driving carefully, competently, and law-abidingly, adjusted for travel type and time spent driving – this is far lower than the 1 in 22,607 you quote.

 
Old and Busted: Listen, Nazi Trumpers, we must shut down to prevent even one death!!
New Hotness: So a percentage of people will die from the ‘vaccine’. Big whoop.

    Comparing road deaths to minor blood clots is insane. This anti-vax push at the Cat is irresponsible.

    I in 127,000 doesn’t sound bad odds tho.
    If that figure is legit.
    I haven’t had a vax since 1980 [tetanus], but when push comes to shove i’d rather take 1 in 127,000 than try surviving in the scrub on raw frogs and lizards and getting rained on.
    As a matter of fact, i’d take odds of 10 to one rather than get cancelled.

    However, that blood clot is going upstairs sooner or later.

  6. Geoff Cruickshank says:

    Exactly. And what are the chances of having an AstraZeneca Bloodclot if you don’t have the injection?

    There are 11 people who were all assured ‘almost no risk’ who have since found out different.

  7. Frank says:

    Always remember, you’re an anecdote once you’ve got it.

  8. Primer says:

    But, but…that’s a small statistical price to pay, the Astra Zenica et al vaccines (errr…treatments not inoculations) will stop you getting Cv and stop you passing it on, which can be their only valid function as vaccines. Thank god.

  9. Ed Case says:

    What about those flanneled fools who hightailed it from India?
    Didn’t they get the vax before going there?
    So what’s the big deal, they’re protected, right?

    not if the vaccine doesn’t actually work

    The Seychelles has suffered the world’s biggest surge in coronavirus cases – despite nearly 70% of its population having received a vaccine.

  12. Tintarella di Luna says:

    What is the risk of developing blood clots from the AstraZeneca vaccine – 0.01%? well that seems a small percentage but if you are susceptible your risk is 100%

  13. Damon says:

    “which can be their only valid function as vaccines”
    Pernicious nonsense. They were developed to stop you dying, or to reduce the severity of symptoms.

  14. duncanm says:

    1 in 22000 is an interesting number – that’s 0.005%

    About equal to the infection fatality rate (IFR) of covid for anyone under 25.

    That’s *if* you catch it. For the UK, cumulative cases are at about 7% of population.

    So the chances from dying on the roads is about equal to that from covid in the UK for anyone under 50.

    Sounds like a good reason to shut down motoring!

    Right…so under 65 and no co morbidities you have a lightening strike’s chance (a metaphor) of expiring from Cv determined disease. So rather than get the the bulk back to work and school while protecting the vulnerable aged and co-morbid with their isolation rather than mine we pretend this is Spanish Flu 1918 with bodies being collected each morning from many Sydney streets.

  20. m0nty says:

    Of 21.2 million doses of AstraZeneca given in the UK by April 14th 2021, there were 168 cases of blood clots, and 32 deaths resulting. That’s approximately 8 cases per million, or 0.0008%. Most of the cases were of clots in the brain.

    Compared to the number of cerebral (brain) venous sinus thrombosis (clots) normally expected in a general population – five cases per million – the vaccine-related clots are very similar to what is expected.

    So the chances are three in a million of dying of thrombosis from the AstraZeneca vaccine, assuming that the other five would have died anyway.

    0.0003% chance of dying from the vaccine, compared to 1.8% chance of dying from the virus if you get it. This whole thread, and the series of threads like it, is a disgrace.

  21. JC says:

    Fatboy

    I think you’re missing few big points in the silly analysis of yours.

    1. Covid is not a disease you actively seek out to contract.

    2. The jab is something you actively choose.

    You’re therefore not really looking at this accurately.

    It’s always best to run things with someone moderately numerate before you pass go, you big fat idiot.

  22. Squirrel says:

    The risk of blood clots is not the only statistic to consider with the AstraZeneca vaccine, particularly when compared to alternatives –

    “That said, Salim Abdool Karim, an infectious disease researcher and co-chair of the Covid-19 advisory committee for South Africa, said he was not deeply concerned about those findings. “[T]he Moderna vaccine produces pretty high levels of antibodies,” he said, “so there is enough antibody still to neutralize the virus.”

    However, Abdool Karim expressed more concern about the efficacy of AstraZeneca’s vaccine, which has not been authorized in the United States, against certain variants. One very small study suggested that that vaccine was almost entirely ineffective at preventing mild cases of Covid-19 against B.1.351, and a separate experiment found that it takes 86 times as many antibodies from the AstraZeneca vaccine to neutralize B.1.351 as it does to neutralize the original strain of the virus.

    “I’m basically not confident about [AstraZeneca’s] vaccine at all” in mitigating B.1.351 infections, Abdool Karim said.”

  24. m0nty says:

    Yes JC, COVID is not something you seek out, but unless you’re boarding yourself up in your home like Howard Hughes for all eternity then you are going to be exposed to the virus at some stage. Your choice is vaccination or copping it in the wild, now or later. Especially given that some percentage of the population is going to remain unvaccinated, providing a permanent pool of infection vectors.

    When your chance of living is 6,000 times better when you choose column A over column B in a compulsory test, only stupid people would choose B.

    A reasonable expectation, but one that does suggest a question about whether a side effect of the vaccination is for a time to increase susceptibility to infection.

    mUnty again reaches into his bag of stupidity and grabs a keyboardful

    do you wonder, how many blood clots like this may normally be distributed over say, a month , without a vaccine to save us all?

    odds of blood clots versus odds of dying from wuflu in Australia?

    IR, that was the subject of one of my letter-to-editors to ten papers yesterday – not printed anywhere…

    The Editor

    The federal government’s Department of Health reported 29,852 COVID-19 cases from 16,976,949 tests.

    That’s a 0.17 percent chance of actually being infected with COVID-19.

    We’ve had 910 deaths “with” COVID-19, or 0.005 per cent of those tested (mostly octogenarians).

    The federal government’s Therapeutic Goods Administration reported 12,694 adverse events from 1,937,300 COVID-19 vaccine doses.

    That’s a 0.65 percent chance of becoming sick from the vaccine.

    Harvard Medical School reported that COVID-19’s “spike proteins” cause cardiovascular damage – just as our federal government’s HealthDirect website reported about COVID-19 vaccine.

    This cardiovascular damage is the reason hydroxychloroquine (with antibiotics, zinc and vitamin D) cures COVID-19.

    Nonetheless the Queensland Government prohibited our doctors from curing COVID-19 with hydroxychloroquine.

    Hydroxychloroquine has been in use for 66 years. It’s on the WHO’s “List of Essential Medicines.”

    We’d have better health if our governments ignored the global vaccination push and got out of the way of doctors curing COVID-19 cases.

    Why have the COVID vaccine here in Brisbane when there are no COVID cases.

    The flu vaccine is more important. The flu can lay you flat for a week or two – not being able to go to work or attend to your caring/family responsibilities, and leave you tired for a few weeks.

  40. Leo G says:

    1.8% chance of dying from the virus if you get it

    Or, more likely as WHO research inferred last September from seroprevalence data, less than 0.2% overall infection fatality rate.
    The COVID vaccines do appear to have much higher rates of serious adverse effects, but it is difficult to weigh risks of vaccination options when there is little available accurate comparisons of vaccine efficacies.
    At present, published efficacy data describes the reduction in risk of infection (not serious disease or death) for the major vaccine products against the prevailing virus strain.
    We are told that reports showing the Pfizer vax provides an 8-fold reduction in infection risk relative to the AstraZeneca vax do not imply the same relative risk reduction performance applies when considering risk of serious illness or death.

  41. Crossie says:

    I’m pretty certain I had the virus on our last cruise so why would I need to get a vaccine and especially any that are more dangerous than the disease?

    Second, there is no point in getting a vaccine since nobody is travelling for pleasure and I don’t need to travel for and other reason.

    You can’t even plan on travelling to another state as the megalomaniac premiers will shut the gates just as you have crossed the border or shelled out your money.

    Geez there are some dumbarses on this site.

  43. egg_ says:

    The median infection fatality rate across all 51 locations was 0.27% (corrected 0.23%). Most data came from locations with high death tolls from COVID-19 and 32 of the locations had a population mortality rate (COVID-19 deaths per million population) higher than the global average (118 deaths from COVID-19 per million as of 12 September 2020;79 Fig. 3). Uncorrected estimates of the infection fatality rate of COVID-19 ranged from 0.01% to 0.67% (median 0.10%) across the 19 locations with a population mortality rate for COVID-19 lower than the global average, from 0.07% to 0.73% (median 0.20%) across 17 locations with population mortality rate higher than the global average but lower than 500 COVID-19 deaths per million, and from 0.20% to 1.63% (median 0.71%) across 15 locations with more than 500 COVID-19 deaths per million. The corrected estimates of the median infection fatality rate were 0.09%, 0.20% and 0.57%, respectively, for the three location groups.

    Statistics don’t mean a bloody thing if you draw the short straw tho!

    My 20yo son lost over a year of his life crippled by what is euphemistically called ‘exquisite’ pain from microscopic polyarteritis nodosa. The only explanation from the medical fraternity was that it was most likely an immune system over-reaction.

    We discovered the reason ourselves in a mixture of attentive research and blind luck. An adverse reaction to a very commonly prescribed antibiotic. When I followed up with the drug manufacturer I was told it was unlikely to be the cause of my boy’s suffering because ‘…it’s the most common drug prescribed everywhere, millions take it every day, and there had been only 22 cases worldwide.’

    It was little consolation that my son did turn out to be number 23. It was a harrowing and expensive year for our entire family watching him constantly crying from the pain. That’s the risk you take with tested medication, that you won’t be that one in a million.

    An immune system that doesn’t know when to quit can make any choice of drug or vaccine an unwelcome experience ranging from uncomfortable to fatal.

    Don’t be too quick to condemn those of us who have a tough time balancing the benefits against the risks.

    No one is talking about the eye complications either…..
    lets not talk about HCQ et al.
    https://www.afinalwarning.com/516051.html
    2021-05-05
    In just a few months, the World Health Organization received approximately 20,000 reports of new eye disorders that occurred post covid-19 vaccination. These reports include 303 cases of blindness and 1,625 cases of visual impairment! The European drug monitoring agency had never recorded such a severe spike in eye injuries until after the experimental vaccines were launched. These reports were collected by VigiBase and analyzed by the Uppsala Monitoring Centre in Uppsalla, Sweden. About half of the new eye disorders were additionally reported to the U.K.’s Yellow Card adverse event reporting system, which was set up to monitor the influx of adverse events that were anticipated during this live, experimental vaccine study. Back in 2020, the vaccine makers had already entered into liability-free contracts with governments around the world. This has enabled mass vaccine injury with no recourse or accountability and set up the framework for a historic, worldwide holocaust.
    Ophthalmologists need more training to properly recognize and report vaccine injury
    These experimental vaccines are designed to cause inflammation throughout the body, by reprogramming human cells to produce inflammatory spike proteins that are derived from the bio-weapon itself. Eye damage is merely a symptom of this inflammation, a sign of more serious problems to come with capillaries and autoimmune issues. The inflammatory conditions caused by the vaccines provide a new revenue stream for various industries within the medical system, including ophthalmology. With mounting evidence of eye injury post-vaccination, ophthalmologists are ethically obligated to denounce these covid-19 vaccines. The vaccines are causing acute eye injuries at scale and are an underlying cause of inflammation for future eye disorders and other health problems. However, ophthalmologists are not properly trained to recognize, diagnose and report vaccine injury. When the U.S. FDA issued Emergency Use Authorization for these experimental ‘vaccines’, they did not mention eye disorders specifically. In their fact sheet, they warn, “additional adverse reactions, some of which may be serious, may become apparent with more widespread use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.” In the UK’s Yellow Card System, vaccine-induced eye damage includes 4,616 cases of severe eye pain, 3,839 cases of blurred vision, 1,808 cases of light intolerance, and 559 cases of double vision. These issues were not prevalent until the vaccine was used. Some of the eye issues are mild but could be a sign of more serious issues within the cardiovascular or nervous systems. There were 768 cases of eye irritation, 731 cases of itchy eyes, 788 cases of ocular hyperemia, 459 cases of eye strain, 400 cases of dry eye, and 653 cases of increased lacrimation.
    The covid vaccine holocaust is destroying people’s hearing and vision
    More serious issues of swelling were documented as well, including swelling around the eye (366 incidences), swelling of the eyelid (360 incidences) eyelid oedema (298) conjunctival haemorrhage or breakage of a small eye vessel (236), periorbital oedema (171), and eye haemorrhage (169). The swelling can be indicative of more serious cerebral, spinal, and/or cardiovascular issues. Blood clots and nervous system disorders are a commonly reported adverse event. The eye disorders provide a window of opportunity to understand just how severe the inflammation is. Ophthalmologists are able to identify early signs of vaccine-induced brain swelling, cardiovascular issues and stroke to help patients seek emergency care before the patient becomes another casualty to these horrid vaccines. One 33-year-old pilot had severe migraines and sudden vision problems following the Pfizer vaccine. The pain migrated down the back of his neck toward the bottom of his skull. The pain lasted for several days and was accompanied by dizziness, nausea, disorientation, confusion, uncontrollable shaking, and tingling in his toes and fingers. He was ultimately evaluated by doctors. The Pfizer COVID vaccine had increased the pressure in his spinal cord and brain stem, rupturing his left inner ear, and damaging his eyesight.

    And nobody is permitted to publish what VAERS has on its website.
    Less than 1% of deaths and side effects are reported to VAERS, which skyrockets the deaths to probably around 40,000 from the vaccines. Everything points not only to rotten fish. but also rats like Fauci and Gates and Tedros….and as for Australia, take your pick.

While we were locked up in 2020 90,000+people were infected with Chlamydia a bacteria that you need close contact with a carrier to catch. In the same time frame 20,000+ people in the population caught a highly contagious , air bourne , super bug called covid 19. Can some person smarter than me explain this please.

    It’s funny that monty keeps on cherry picking particular countries to suit his narrative but he never stops to ask: why do different countries have such different outcomes?

    It’s not masking or lockdowns that have protected any place.

    The “burden” of this supposed virus is purely in the testing – how much is done and how they’re interpreted.

    If you mostly test people over 90 (or interpret the results in the elderly more liberally) then you’ll have a very high case fatality rate.

    If you test everybody and interpret the results the same you’ll have a very low case fatality rate.

    Monty is way too stupid to understand any of this so instead of looking at the wildly variable case fatality rates and concluding that all the data is bullshit, he concludes that he can and should cherry pick the worst possible data and claim that is/will be true for everywhere.

    A young woman I know (in Canada) has just had Covid

    Really?

    When did she observe the virus first enter her body and how long after that did she start getting symptoms?

    FatBoi M(i)nty knows all about it after 1 jab of something that is not a vaccine, doesn’t stop you getting it again and have to keep getting another jab each year. Sounds like he’s trying to convince himself, of what I don’t know. I’m not a antivaxxer, I only take stuff that’s proven to work like malt whisky.

    As Tucker put it so succinctly
    ” No questions are allowed”

    Shane,

    Tucker was using the Statistics from CDC also maintains a database of self-reportedadverse events from all vaccines(VAERS)

    What about side effects?The CDC maintains a website of historical vaccine safety concerns and outcomes starting in 1955 which you can access here:

    Historical Vaccine Safety Concerns

    Questions and Concerns

    There is solid medical and scientific evidence that the benefits of vaccines far outweigh the risks. Despite this, there have been concerns about the safety of vaccines for as long as they have been available in the U.S. This page will explain past vaccine safety concerns, how they have been resolved, and what we have learned.

    The CDC also maintains a database of self-reportedadverse events from all vaccines(VAERS). We found that incidence of hospitalization and emergency room visits after COVID vaccines is higher than for the flu, but still very low on an absolute basis and similar to other vaccines and medications. The challenge with this data is that it is not “causal”; adverse events need more analysis to determine if they were actually caused by the vaccine or not. But in the spirit of full disclosure, here’s the data we compiled using VAERS data.

    The origin of COVID: Did people or nature open Pandora’s box at Wuhan?

    The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted lives the world over for more than a year. Its death toll will soon reach three million people. Yet the origin of pandemic remains uncertain: The political agendas of governments and scientists have generated thick clouds of obfuscation, which the mainstream press seems helpless to dispel.

    In what follows I will sort through the available scientific facts, which hold many clues as to what happened, and provide readers with the evidence to make their own judgments. I will then try to assess the complex issue of blame, which starts with, but extends far beyond, the government of China.

    By the end of this article, you may have learned a lot about the molecular biology of viruses. I will try to keep this process as painless as possible. But the science cannot be avoided because for now, and probably for a long time hence, it offers the only sure thread through the maze.

    Less than 1% of deaths and side effects are reported to VAERS, which skyrockets the deaths to probably around 40,000 from the vaccines. Everything points not only to rotten fish.

    Front line Medics aren’t taking the vax, but plague-o-phobe mUnter does, allegedly (viz: “dead dog” story).

    All you need to know.

    Note it’s the blog plague-o-phobes from early 2020 now shilling for the vax.

    Turkeys voting for Christmas.

    An uncertain bug vs a reportedly certain risk of death via vax (too bad if it’s under reported manifold).

    Right…so under 65 and no co morbidities you have a lightening strike’s chance (a metaphor) of expiring from Cv determined disease……..while protecting the vulnerable aged and co-morbid with their isolation…….we pretend this is Spanish Flu 1918 with bodies being collected each morning from many Sydney streets.

    Waaaay back when this thing first started, a number of Cats laid out some well thought out and specific ideas for protecting the vulnerable (no expense spared) whilst the rest of the population went about their business. None of it was ‘perfect’ and some adjustments would have been required, but it was fundamentally sound being a combination of science and practicality. Some Cats wrote to their local member, Health Minister or the Prime Minister, all to no avail.

    Because the advice didn’t come from someone on the government’s ‘inner circle’, it was discarded. The rest, as people say, is history.

  80. Figures says:

    Certain risk of death! LOL.

    He means that not only is there a good chance of surviving COVID, but there is also a good chance you won’t get it in the first place. Indeed, there is zero valid evidence that the disease is contagious.

    On the other hand if you get the vaccine – and its associated risks – then there is a 100 per cent chance you will get the vaccine.

  81. Figures says:

    Now monty, how do you go about providing a coherent explanation for the wildly varying case mortality rate figures from state to state, country to country etc?

    And while you’re at it, why don’t you have a go at explaining how every time there is a lockdown due to three people with the sniffles, the government jumps up and down hysterically about how those three people visited tens of thousands of people and yet, somehow, this “outbreak” usually peters out (usually at the end of a long weekend)?

    How can tens of thousands of people come into contact with the virus with zero harm and yet people like you are still certain that it is highly contagious?

    You’ll excuse me if I don’t hold my breath waiting for your answer.

    discredited Ioannidis

    If anything says you’re a troll, this is it.
    Ioannidis has been quite moderate in his assessment of the WuFlu ‘crisis’, entirely grounded in actual science rather than fear mongering, and also so far spot on.
    His work on the topic has been peer-reviewed and I am not aware of any of it having to be retracted – unlike much of the ‘climate science’ rot you so uncritically believe.
    Needless to say that unlike you, he is considered to be at the very top of his field.
    You clown.

  83. Leo G says:

    Certain risk of death! LOL.

    LOL. The expression ” a certain risk of death” does not have the same meaning as “a certainty of death”. The former implies that the risk has been established at some value with reasonable confidence.
    I do not imply that I agree with claims that the risks from COVID infection or from vaccination have been established with high confidence levels.

  84. m0nty says:

    Indeed, there is zero valid evidence that the disease is contagious.

    You are a moron, Figures.

    Ioannidis has been quite moderate in his assessment of the WuFlu ‘crisis’, entirely grounded in actual science rather than fear mongering, and also so far spot on.

    Like I said, his conclusions imply that just on 100% of the US population have now been infected. Soon, with the death toll continuing to rise, his estimate of the IFR will imply an infection rate of over 100%. His conclusions are rubbish, John B.

  85. Figures says:

    You are a moron, Figures

    That’s a really crap answer to my questions.

    Try again.

  86. John Bayley says:

    Like I said, his conclusions imply that just on 100% of the US population have now been infected.

    Right, so after proclaiming to be an expert in statistics, you are now an expert in epidemiology, too?

    Why do you think less than 20% of passengers on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, a perfect ‘petri dish’ in so many ways, got ‘infected’ and only 0.4% of the total died?

    Perhaps it had to do with previous cross-immunity from other, similar viruses, which means that only about 20% of the population need to have been infected and there will be ‘herd immunity’?

    A bit like this recent scientific study concludes?

    What is it with people like you: Obviously not entirely dumb, and yet so utterly, determinedly blind to anything that does not fit into the world view of the sheeple’s collective…
