Not sure if correct but supposedly the clotting with AZ is the opposite (platelet count) than the Pill-type of clotting.
Regardless, is it not something they could test for before jabbing you? Or is it too hard?

Re: The Australian Politics Thread

We need to see some timelines

Ignoring the over 50 thing in NSW....

When will all over 50s be vaccinated?

When do the first 10 million people get the Pfizer shots and who are these people.

Finally, who are the last 10 million people that get the second batch of Pfizer - in December presumably.
