No, not a reflection on my, undoubted, talents as a perfect human being. Apparently the potential (unproved) odds on developing a serious blood clot after receiving the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine, according to the latest news reports.
I read a brief and concise article on the BBC Science website earlier. It appears that the risk is very low, no more so than developing a clot after an aircraft journey perhaps or taking the contraceptive pill. However, I suspect that there will be many people who may decide not to have the AstraZeneca vaccine, just in case.
I have already had my first shot of the AZ vaccine and shall still have my second when my turn comes.
I have had no side effects so far, two weeks after my vaccination, however, I awoke this morning with a sore arm and a red patch on the skin close to the injection site.
Probably nothing to worry about. Just hope that I am not one in a million.
