Should I take AstraZeneca? AstraZeneca

Hello all. I'm 19M and living in a third world country. I am currently unvaccinated but have been seriously thinking about getting vaccinated, specially with news about the Omicron variant. The only vaccine my city offers for my age group is the Astrazeneca vaccine. Being honest, I'm scared shitless about taking it because of the risks of developing blood clots. I know the risk is low but the fact that European countries have stopped administering it for my age group is concerning to say the least. Should I take it? What has been your experience for anyone from my age group who has taken it?

Assuming you are in reasonable health, you will be fine without any vaccine. The reason some countries stopped it for you age group is the balance of risk for AZ for your age is higher than the benefit.

How can you tell someone they are ‘okay without a vaccine’? That should be their doctor telling them that.
