Diabetics at higher risk of blood clots, but urged to get blood clot risking shots

Yes, that is accurately what is being recommended. Despite the pre-existing risks to diabetics in general, they are apparently being urged by some 'experts' to get the shot that can lead to blood clots... and death.

Diabetics are being encouraged to continue coming forward for the coronavirus vaccine, following news that a 48-year-old woman died after developing a very rare blood clot condition likely linked to her recent AstraZeneca shot.

People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at increased risk of some types of blood clots, but experts said there is no evidence to suggest they run a greater risk of developing the rare condition believed to be caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine known as thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS).

I have to give credit to this Sydney morning Herald newspaper, because at least there saying a 'likely link' between the AstraZeneca shocked and developing a blood clot condition. In many places they still saying that there is a possible link, not even likely. So this is a step forward and actually admitting that there's a problem with the experimental injection.

But even likely is under evaluating the evidence that links the experimental AstraZeneca injection with blood clots. In at least two European nations, researchers from Germany and Norway independently found that no other cause other than the experimental injection from AstraZeneca could account for the blood clots and deaths that occurred in the cases they studied.

This article is very odd. It seems like the type of journalism and reporting which simply regurgitates information without giving any judgment in doing any logical analysis themselves. They're merely stating things and expect you to add two and two together. Which is fine, but it really shows how much they avoiding stating things that are perceived as not helpful towards the mass vaccination effort.

In the first paragraph talking about diabetics being encouraged to continue to get the AstraZeneca experimental injection. But then in the second paragraph the state how people with both types of diabetes are at increased risk of some types of blood clots. So right off the get-go, if you have diabetes, you have an increased risk of blood clots. But the first paragraph was saying that you should still get your AstraZeneca experimental injection which increases the risk of blood clots.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration’s vaccine safety investigation group concluded on Friday that her death was likely linked to the jab, but it remains under investigation because of the unusual clinical profile of the case, the regulator’s head, Professor John Skerritt said.

So even though they have no other reason to explain the sudden blood clot, at least at the moment, I guess they're hoping to find something else to explain it so it remains under investigation. What is this unusual clinical profile of the case? I think that's a political issue related to vaccinations. You don't want to be saying that vaccines a vaccine, or really an experimental injection, killed someone.

But don't worry, go ahead and get one anyways if you have diabetes. Increasing your risk that much more doesn't seem to matter.
