Mowing the lawn, engaging in a quick sexual act with a partner, or enjoying a burger at the local pub – what do all of these things have in common?
They are all more likely to kill you than side effects from the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine.
The Therapeutic Goods Association said there are 93 reports assessed as blood clotting following the AstraZeneca vaccine out of 6.8 million doses in Australia.
There have been seven deaths linked to the vaccine in Australia. All vaccines’ deaths are tragic, but the statistics show that the chances of dying from complications after receiving an AstraZeneca jab are about one in a million.

Australia’s advertising agencies have offered a comical look at some of the everyday things more likely to kill you than the jab in what’s called: “The A to Z of things more likely to kill you than the AZ.”
Among them include “Death by a Quickie”, which has a one in 500,000 chance of death, meaning you are twice as likely to die from quick sex than from an AstraZeneca dosage.
Looking for a relaxing soak in the tub after a long day? Think again. Having a bath is a one in 685,000 chance of death.
More concerning is death from the silent killer wedged between two brioche buns. Yes, that’s right – the hamburger is a one in 3,318 chance of death.
Other things more likely to kill you include falling into a volcano, dancing, and constipation. Ouch.

From advertising agency Hardhat, Dan Monheit said his industry specialized in communication and wanted to put forward messages about the importance of vaccinations.
“So we’re calling on all agency leaders, clients, suppliers, and colleagues to please help share information that puts the risk into perspective and encourages those who can to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” he said.
It is also understandable people might have vaccine anxiety outside of the ongoing fear of AstraZeneca vaccines – lots of people are afraid of needles after all.
But for anyone concerned, contact your GP about the facts regarding receiving a vaccine or check the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation’s advice.
