Despite assurances from the mainstream media, the coronavirus vaccines are not proving to be entirely safe.

In fact, 11 countries have now banned the AstraZeneca vaccine due to deadly side effects. The countries that have banned AstraZeneca shots are Austria, Italy, Bulgaria, Germany, Romania, Estonia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia as well as Norway and Iceland.

According to Norway’s announcement, the shot was possibly to blame for causing several severe blood clots and cerebral hemmorhages, and one Norwegian health worker who received the shot has now died of a blood clot.

The Italian government recently ramped up its precautions as well, blocking a large shipment of the vaccine from being taken to hospitals and clinics after it left the Oxford-AstraZeneca factory on the outskirts of Rome.

What Happened in Norway?

The cases in Norway reportedly happened to younger people who had less platelets in their blood, according to the Norwegian Health Agency.

At this point the agency is warning anyone under 50 who’s had the AstraZeneca shot in the past two weeks to see a physician if their skin starts having hemmorhages or if they feel sick. Denmark and numerous other countries have already banned the dangerous vaccine.

Austria has had multiple cases of people getting very sick after receiving the shot and had a fatality as well.

As for Norway, their health authorities are playing it safe, with health authority doctor Sigurd Hortemo saying “we can’t say if there is a connection with the vaccine, but we will investigate thoroughly.”

AstraZeneca issued a denial with its director of global media relations Fiona Cookson claiming that out of the 17 million shots that have been given out they’ve seen “no evidence of an increased risk of pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis or thrombocytopenia” and according to her there’s no noticeable rise in the number of people having these potentially deadly effects and the shot since the numbers are “not greater than the number that would have occurred naturally in the unvaccinated population.”

Cookson said AstraZeneca is reviewing the safety info, while the European Medicines Agency also said it’s investigating what happened in Austria but can’t find proof as of yet that it had anything to do with the vaccine.

The World Health Organization also said it’s looking into reports of blood clots from the vaccine. After how they handled the COVID-19 outbreak, their conclusions should probably be assumed to be the opposite of the truth.

The Bottom Line

The safety or danger of the vaccines is not clear at this point, since it is not only the AstraZeneca vaccine which has had issues. It is highly irresponsible of news networks and other organizations to be assuring people that COVID vaccines are safe while ongoing investigations into fatalities are taking place.

There are also reasons to be skeptical about what health authorities say about the safety of vaccines. There have been numerous examples in the past of products and vaccines not being as safe as they are reported to be, with those who get the shots paying the price and governments and health authorities getting away with it with no punishment.

Recently a 39-year-old Utah woman died only four days after getting the second dose of the Moderna shot. Her family says she was perfectly healthy before the shot with no health conditions but became severely ill and had her body shut down after taking the second dose.

The other thing is that long-term testing on vaccines has not yet been done and it’s very presumptuous to assume there will not be any negative long-term effects. At this point is is everyone’s decision what to do with their health, but healthy skepticism is advised.
