FOX32: Study finds vaccines carry less risk of blood clots than the coronavirus itself

Dr. Shikha Jain from the University of Illinois at Chicago talks about why the virus itself poses more of a blood clot risk than vaccines.

🌟Higher risk of developing a clot after #COVID19 infection compared to #CovidVaccine
🌟Booster shots are in our future. We are already seeing variants, boosters are likely going to be needed to keep the virus under control.
🌟Michigan surging, #WearAMask #SocialDistance
🌟If we want to have fun this summer, we need to get our numbers under control. Get as many people as we can vaccinated, and get ourselves back to low positivity rates.

Just bc we r done w the virus doesn’t mean it’s done with us
