I have that after the 1st dose Pfizer, small and sub-epidermal, it is disolving, shoulder neck junction. To me it seems linked to pollen allergy + Pfizer combo.
also after TBE or Covid vaccine?
in our case it wasnt that small: ~3cm

But yours was the COVID vaccine and Vladest’s wife’s was the tick borne encephalitis one.
They are completely different vaccine types.

Actually at the Winterthur Vax center, my husband was asked about both blood thinners and aspirin.

He was vaxxed with Pfizer.

Same here, also listed on the questionnaire I had to complete and sign before getting the vaccination.
Same here. There was an extensive questionnaire to complete and sign before vaccination.

Of course. Yeah, it was Pfizer's anti-covid.

No questionnaire here, no signature either.

Vaccines used were questionable quality and low efficiency I read - and I would not put much trust in offical data of 70% - I guess it was to bring tourism back

Re: Coronavirus

Can anyone make sense of the quarantine list? Or general quarantine situation? For example recently CH took the Maldives off their list, but yesterday the U.K. put it on their red list!

Your most unlikely world is actually the most likely. The vast majority of people have managed to avoid contracting Covid.

To date in Switzerland 6 people under 30 have died with Covid.
I am sorry but I seem to be missing something - but I hope your world and you be right .

- take no vaccine and assume world around will eradicate virus for you
- take vaccine and stop hoping on others - you activly help in virus eradication
- stay away from anyone for rest of your life - so you do not spreading disease.

I believe I have seen following pattern:

Should large migration of locals take this as destination in next 14-days - and risk they won't keep covid regime ( family holidays , celebrations , gatherings , marriages , easter or other) - put that country on the BAG high risk .

That is way to keep population not moving - example of all Easter countries during Easter time , now "summer destinations" are put on list etc

I guess also target country local load on health system and it's quality to withstand is taken into account - to avoid repatriations and costs assosciated (for all these dual passport owners)

Not entirely cases/population are BAG priority it seems.

based on what I have heard - it's first time I hear of Chinese version of vaccine - as well about "Indian copy of AZ"

so at least I wasn't aware even of existence of these let alone quality - I just heard that WHO certified Chinese yesterday ?

China has five different COVID-19 vaccines; only one, Sinopharm, has been certified by WHO. Delay is due to a lack of adequate trial data.

It is not an AZ copy, SII officially manufactures in India the local version of AstraZeneca's vaccine called Covishield.

Bharat Biotech makes Covaxin in India which is a locally developed vaccine.

Re: Coronavirus

What is interesting is that there was a lot noise about AZ and lot of countries stopped using it.

biggest winners are Pfizer/Moderna

I'd not be suprised that behind publicity be very two making $$ .

However some studies seem to suggest all vaccines raise CVT chances .

Re: Coronavirus

At last!
Quote:
The US Center for Disease Control on Friday updated its guidance to confirm that the coronavirus also spreads through so-called "aerosol transmission."
This effectively means the pathogen transmits and proliferates through not just close contact but also by inhalation of very fine particle mist exhaled by an infected person which can remain suspended in the air.

Although such transmission has long been factored in by many researchers and public health officials, the updated guideline now stressing that inhalation is one of the main ways the virus is spread is a change from the agency’s previous position that most infections were through close contact and surface transmission.

There is also a South Korea version of AZ called AZ, my home country managed to get it after India refused to deliver further doses of Covishield. Luckily it's the same vaccine so people who had the first dose of Covishield could have the second dose of AZ.

"BioNTech/Pfizer and Moderna have an efficacy rate of around 90% or higher, while the AstraZeneca jab is thought to be around 76%."

They don't ask about thinners here nor Aspirin. Hmmm.

Hope she metabolises the fallout as soon as possible. It is important to not have the traumatic experience slow down the current recovery. It is good you are by her side. You need to recharge as well.
In Zürich they did ask me about blood thinners before my first jab, can‘t remember about aspirin - but its all the same stuff about your blood coagulation level (blood clotting). Normal procedure I think. If you‘ve had an operation, you may be on blood thinning medicine for example, which will make you bleed more if you get a cut or worse. Aspirin has the same effect.

Had the same - about 7 days after my first Pfizer jab. Just woke up and had horrible swollen glands - also wasn‘t sure if it was due to my pollen allergy, but it had been raining for two days previously, so unlikely. Felt pretty rotten for an entire day (even went to pickup a self-test incase it continued), went to bed at 4pm because of it, and woke up at 10pm feeling perfect again.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-56967973
Those figures need to be explained a bit more. Below a more thorough easy to read thing. The Pfizer vaccine has actually about 95% efficacy, while the AstraZeneca has only about 76% - but there are pros and cons to it‘s distribution - especially to poorer countries.

I‘m curious to see how the long-term effects/pandemic of those countries vaccinated primarily with AstraZeneca will pan-out. My understanding is that the UK will not be vaccinating people under 40 with it due to the blood clotting issue, but vaccines allowed in Switzerland - Pfizer and Moderna will be.
