    From what I have read, it is true. A lot of people are blowing the risks associated with Covid-19 vaccines way out of proportion, IMO.
    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
    ...
    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

    From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia

    • The risk of blood clots with birth control definitely exists, and I've read the same (that the risks of getting one from birth control is higher than the vaccine) but I believe the overall risk is still really low.

      Here's some info on blood clots and birth control: https://www.uofmhealth****/health-library/tw9278

      • I haven't read any documentation on inflammation related to birth control pills. The risk of blood clots is well documented especially among smokers or obese patients using birth control pills. This is why it's typically not prescribed if you have those factors.
        I think it's too early to have exceptionally reliable data on the Covid vaccine.
