I think they are finding some real problems with the AZ vaccine, a good friend of my sister, has her 50 year old son in hospital, he began experiencing bad head aches a hour after the jab, about two weeks later started to exhibit some violent behaviour and now in hospital.
On my part, I got my AZ jab a month ago, a week ago I began experiencing some eye trouble in my right eye, very fuzzy, very concerning. May not be related at all as going through a lot of stress at the moment, but am seeing an eye doctor on Saturday AM.  Will let you know if he thinks or knows it is AZ related.
I had a feeling should have waited for Pfizer or Moderno.
Update, saw eye doc yesterday, nothing to do with AZ vaccine, however I do have a cataract forming that will have to be operated on down the road. A real relief actually.

Well, the important thing is that we keep suggesting that any and all health problems anyone has after getting vaccinated may be a result of the vaccine.

I agree Nik, however the loss of vision in my eye was very dramatic over a short period.  The mind does tend to play tricks with worry. For what its worth I would take a 2nd AZ shot to hopefully finish the vaccination process.

First AZ vaccine was cancelled a couple weeks ago. I've now rebooked for May 25th for Pfizer or Moderna. Myself and my 12 year old are the last two in the family without the first jab.

Just read in the Sun that the Feds are sitting on 600,000 doses of the AZ vaccine which should be given within 12 weeks at most of the first dose.  According to the article mixing and matching Mrna vaccines with AZ is not a good idea.  Not enough hard science at this point.

As I mentioned in my last post, I am very open to a 2nd dose of AZ where the research shows if clotting was not an issue with the first AZ shot, it will be infinitesimal with the 2nd dose.

My 28 years old son got the Pfizer shot yesterday, they moved him up a week as he is supposed to be in Jasper to start a Chef  gig.  Already been pushed back on that position for over a month now so hope they open up Alberta.   
All I know is I want to start working again asap.

If there's not enough hard science, then how do they know it is not a good idea? Dr Tam was saying that it actually might be a good idea.

I am as sympathetic as the next person but what you said is literally not what most people in the field have said about mixing AZ & MRNA.

I get you're anxious and all that but you can't just keep saying things that are just factually untrue.

This is from the article yesterday in the Sun, (just so you know I didn't make this s__t up) after this I will not speak on the subject again;

Like a spoiled child, Canada is sitting on more than 600,000 AZ shots. Public health officials don’t want them, but they’re not letting anyone else have them.

In a stunning interview last weekend, CTV’s Evan Solomon spoke to Sir John Bell, regius professor at Oxford University. He developed the AZ vaccine and says early results from pick ‘n’ mix studies show there are seriously bad reactions when the Pfizer and Moderna MrNA vaccines are mixed with the AZ viral vector shots.
