I am asking this because there is a lot of resistance to it here and many say it just doesn’t work. I am sure they do not know this but have just heard rumours. I figured in the uk people might know as they are way ahead of us in vaccine rates.
I have had two doses myself as have many of my friends and acquaintances so I really hope we haven’t wasted our time.

MaggieMaybe, any medication or vaccine has its risks.

Which is what I’m pointing out. In answer to the statement that there have been no similar concerns about the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

There have been cases of myocarditis in young men with the Pfizer vaccine I believe but it hasn’t had the publicity that blood clots with the AZ vaccine has.
