My take on vaccine faff.

What ever you hear on Internet news, Yayhoo especially, is all political mumbo jumbo.  Mum finished her final vaccination with Moderna.  Newsome only allowed FDA approved vaccines, which was part of Moderna being pushed on to Californians, in the states.  I know one person who got AstraZenica and has no issues with 1st shot.  Why am I so jaded with Moderna and Pfizer?  Well it's simple they have paid big money to be the only option for some time in the states.  Oxford and AstraZenica are not in it for money and will not play into a political war with countries and media.  Most of what you hear about AstraZenica is half truths against its effectiveness.  No company invested in a treatment wants to be behind a leader that has no profit and is practically giving it away.

Now for the real horror story.  Mum's battles... December had her in the hospital with Pneumonia.  January she was home, yet winter in the mountains was hard on her. Early March she got infected by visiting her best friend who was slowly dying in intensive care. Her best friends sons, who live in San Francisco just traveled from abroad spreading the Corona into the Northern mountains and public areas, unknowingly.What happened was a nightmare.  1st test was negative, and a week later positive.  She was forced to stay home and take care of herself in self isolation for a week and a half. Being in her 70s, with health issues ( heart, diabetic and a smoker),  she thought her best friend was infected, but the cause was health care workers. They had come and gone, believing what procedures they did to keep spread minimal was effective. So they ended up infecting her when visiting her home, since mum was still a member of the health services as assisted living home care.  She survived the trauma and suffering of infection.  What she went through with Corona was a cake walk until she got hit with Moderna. For the 1st shot, she had for a full month, deep and long lasting headaches.  So bad it was like a constant migraine.  Her doctor said it was from too many pain relievers and to stop taking them. How many people would want to go through that?  Not me!  So she lived a month on constant headaches, big deal. It was not Corona, right? The second vaccination made the whole upper side of her body hurt for a day, and gave her a migraine like no other. After 24 hours it subsided eventually ending through the week.

I had always said Moderna is not the best option for elderly, yet Newsom and the media ignore or bury the facts.  Yayhoo is quick to find people who are doing well with Moderna, yet won't print a word on the people who suffer through long term side effects.  IMO, Moderna should not be given to elderly, as it's proven it's risks before and during vaccinations. 
 
Moderna has hushed up their side effects and allowed delays between their vaccinations.  The strict procedures for drug trials never were accepted with delaying treatments or lowering dosage.  When AstraZenica fussed up that they got better results with a lower dosage, the big companies cried fowl and made it more difficult for AstraZenica to have credibility.  Now the big companies are playing God in allowing governments to jump blindedlyrics into playing God with what doses and delays one can have to combat the virus.  Basically throwing out proper treatments that were carried out in final stages of the trials. 

Funny thing is the EU doesn't like Brexit, so they will push against anything British.  Bad politics and agendas to discredit.  As of late the blood clot issues as of late are from Corona, not from the treatment.  Corona usually causes blood clots, it's a known fact.  So what happens when you give a vaccine to an infected person?  A crap shoot, that's what.  Big companies are like Democrats, as they are quick to the draw to blame and shame for profit, but ignore their own doings.

Some may say this has nothing to do with politics, is a capitalism having it out.  Politics is Money related.  It's the big players game for control. If one has vested interests they will play big money to have power through government channels, at home and abroad. IMO nobody that has any unbiased facts when money has been part of the equation. Reporting or data gathering is not a free service.  As long as there are padded pockets like the FDA, we will have to wear Wellingtons.

I think you're overreacting to your mom's headache. Sure, vaccines usually cause upper body aches. Headaches are normal too, but saying a vaccine caused a headache for a month is pretty far fetched. I had a pretty severe headache for most of January and February. I'm not sure why, but I'd say it was because it was suddenly very bright and snowy; light causes migraines to many people during the spring. I went over a month with 3 grams of paracetamol a day and it only took the edge off. Pain meds don't work forever and stopping taking them after a while might actually help with the pain. If her headache doesn't go away, maybe tell her to see a neurologist or a physical therapist.

As far as the blood clots related to the AZ vaccine, it doesn't have anything to do with Brexit, it's just local health officials taking precautions. Yes, I think it's overreacting, but I'm not a professional and it's obviously important to look into it. Besides, saying stopping AZ vaccines in many EU countries is somehow being against the UK is ridiculous, AZ is a British-Swedish corporation, many EU countries have contributed to their vaccine research and I'm pretty sure that none of the AZ vaccines being produced in the UK are currently being shipped to EU.

IMO you're being overly political with this and spreading kind of hazy information that's not science based and unless you can point to research done by professionals about side effects, not your mom's opinion that doesn't seem out of the normal, don't go around saying things like this. It's harmful
