Rexall created a graphic that explains the risks of COVID-19 vaccines vs blood clots


Many don't realize that the birth control pill has a much higher risk of creating blood clots and stroke than the AstraZeneca vaccine.


Another widely used drug - Viagra can also cause blood clots. (https://www.upi.com/Science_News/2003/01/09/Viagra-can-cause-blood-clots-heart-attack/41531042133428/)


Aspirin, naproxen (Aleve) and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) may cause rare blood clots. (https://www.webmd.com/dvt/news/20140924/common-painkillers-tied-to-blood-clot-risk-study-suggests)


It's all a matter of risk. The latest guidelines from the CDC are that the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine in combating the widespread threat of COVID-19 (which itself results in clotting problems and may be fatal) continue to outweigh the risk of side effects.

Everyone in Ontario aged 18 and older will be able to get a COVID vaccine. Health Minister Christine Elliott has confirmed a tentative new schedule for the province wide rollout, which states that all adults 18 and over will be able to get vaccinated starting as soon as May 24, in less than a month's time (https://www.blogto.com/city/2021/04/everyone-18-over-ontario-able-get-covid-vaccine/). When it's your turn - DON'T HESITATE!
