If you want to read it (https://www.contractsfinder.service....e-9999aecc753d)

Yes it's redacted, but so is the one the EU released.

I'd completely forgotten about this..... I'm still here and alive, I did feel pretty CRAP for 2 days after my jab, but I'm absolutely fine now.

My wife felt a bit rough for the first 24 hours but that was it. I'm getting my jab tomorrow.

I had a very mild headache the day after my jab but no other issues.

The reason the AZ vaccine is unpopular in Germany is an article by a newspaper (Handelsblatt) which claimed the vaccine was only 8% effective on the over 65 yr olds.

That was a massive jump of facts that the reporter made, the figure of 8% was the number of people over 55 in the AZ trials. Every vaccine is first tested on monkeys then on young fit people who are better able to survive any bad reactions. The testing time available for these vacines has been so rushed that some steps were shortened or missed out. The German government is now pleading with population ( including over 65's ) to take the AZ vaccine, but the damage was done by politicising vaccines by country of origin, basically the EU did not want to accept that the AZ vaccine was effective, simply because it was produced in UK. The real world data from the Scottish program were released early last week showing AZ was 94% effective and Pfizer 85% effective in preventing hospitalisation.

The Microsoft one Worked as well as the rest of their products - 8% efficient, the Germans got mixed up between the Astrazenica and the Microsoft one ( AZ and MS must mean the same in German ). Turns out too many of the wrong viruses in the MS one.

what with 10 subjects. how can they give figures like that when the jabs have only been in Scotland for two or so months. its a load of borlocks.


or is it a Scottish company sorting worldwide data.


who can say if those people would have been hospitalised or not. companies cant make bold statements like that and if they do then they doing nothing but advertising false data.
