Generating statistics is hard, drawing inference from statistics is even harder and more important.

Of course it is, every time people get excited about the Johnson, it goes all limp and leaves everyone disappointed.

Congrats on the vaccine.  I'm currently on a wait list since they just opened it up to everyone here yesterday.

/My sympathies about the hat, though. :)

I received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine two weeks ago (next dose is in a week), but considering how rare the J&J clotting issue was, I would have had no qualms about getting that one.

You are twice as likely to be struck by lightning than to suffer from a debilitating or lethal blood clot from the J&J vaccine.  Yet another example of how people suck at calculating risk because they place too much weight on the sensationalist threat.

There's room for looking at those numbers differently.

Men, 0 risk, right? Women under 18 or over 48, 0 risk, right?

So it could be more like 6 in 2 million if you're an woman under 49. It maybe there's other factors like white women under 49 who've had a child in the last 5 years. We don't actually know, but if you are in a small group, what if it's more like 1 in 15,000 while it's 0 in 6.8 million for everyone else?

It's unlikely they should have even paused the Johnson for men given the statistics behind that.

The funny part is the feds make sure the shot is free, but if they sell merch about the event, the venue can try to recoup profit.

The people relentlessly pushing the dangers don't care. They just want to poison people's minds against vaccines period

I wouldn't get the J&J, not because of clots, but because it has only 66% efficacy as opposed to 94% and 95% for Moderna and Pfizer respectively. The only vaccines with worse protection are the Chinese ones.

Pushing J&J and the AZ vaccines is like pushing buggy whip sales, we've already moved on so stop it and get in the car.

The broad-spectrum antivax morons have found common cause with the reich wing liars who want to push this BS in order to hurt America in order to hurt Biden.

The Johnson efficacy swells to much more than 66% if you give it time.

Got the J&J and doing great. Loving the new tail!

Are we talking about the same J&J that knew about asbestos in their baby powder for decades and didn't make it safer? Yeah, I wouldn't trust them either.

My problem with it is there's so much more that COVID can do to you than just kill you. I had a mild case a bit over a year ago. The brain fog lasted for months. I'm just starting my strength and energy back. My senses of smell and taste were completely gone. And I think some of the neurological effects are permanent. "You won't die" isn't good enough if I'm looking at the long haul effects of a slightly worse case next time.

I don't want any covid at all, as opposed to just not dying from covid. And if I don't get covid in the first place I wont die from it either.
