The Norwegian Institute of Public Health advised the country’s government to avoid the use of Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca Covid vaccines, citing serious side effects such as blood clots that have taken the lives of multiple Norwegians.

Thanks Gunter,

No need for  a translation. We'll  just settle for the facts/science.

Blood Clot Risk from COVID-19 Higher than After Vaccines: Study

The chance of developing cerebral venous sinus thrombosis was nearly 10 times higher in the two weeks following a diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection than after receiving an mRNA vaccine, a data analysis finds.

"A COVID-19 diagnosis is associated with a 39-in-1-million chance of developing a rare blood clot condition, compared with about a 4-in-1-million chance after receiving the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines against the disease, according to a data analysis led by researchers at the University of Oxford. The study, posted Wednesday (April 14), has not yet been peer reviewed. The findings add weight to concerns that suspending the use of other vaccines, namely, AstraZeneca’s and Johnson & Johnson’s adenovirus vector–based shots, might not be worth the tradeoff of leaving people without protection against SARS-CoV-2." 

For the new study, researchers used a database of electronic medical records of patients based primarily in the US to determine the risk of blood clots after vaccination versus infection. Of the 513,284 COVID-19 patients identified in the database, 20 developed CVST within two weeks after their diagnosis. Two out of 489,871 patients who received an mRNA vaccine developed CVST. As a control, the researchers also analyzed the risk of developing CVST within two weeks of a flu diagnosis, which was zero in 1 million.  

The study notes that the European Medicines Agency’s latest estimate for the risk of CVST associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine is 5 per 1 million. The study did not address the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

the common story going around the u.s. is that 6 people have died of clots, out of about 6 million.(for jnj vaccine).

so this means the odds are about 1 out of a million.  (most of those were females around the age of 50). 

1 out of a million is not statistically significant.  my opinion.  

another way to think about it... if you are not female, and not close to 50 yrs old,... then don't worry about it. 

you have a better chance of being struck by lightening.

I found the original link interesting, not so much because of the blood clot issue (these vaccines come with a lot more baggage than blood clots), but because of the fact that a nation's government takes such a step to protect it's citizens.

I am under the impression that our government is a bit lax in this matter

To explain my point about our government being a bit lax….

A few days ago, a doctor explained it this way….

One of the strongest rules in the pharmaceutical business is to NEVER give pregnant women medication that has not been tested on pregnant women.

Yet, in the US, pregnant women were not only given the Covid jab, they were even encouraged to take it, even though no tests had been done on pregnant women.

The result… 30% of them had miscarriages.

This doctor called this “malpractice”.

Of course, vaccine manufacturers cannot be sued. In 1996 they pushed through a law that disallowed lawsuits involving vaccines.
