GLASGOW, SCOTLAND – A 56-year-old man has lost his leg just two weeks after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Alex Mitchell from Glasgow got the shot on March 20th and was hospitalized on April 4th after collapsing at home. He had developed blood clots so severe that doctors had no other option but to amputate his left leg above the knee.

Alex developed sore calves 12 days after the vaccine, but said that he“didn’t think much of it”. The pain continued to get worse over the next few days and on April 4th, Alex collapsed at home.

“One minute I was doing the ironing and the next moment my legs buckled from under me.”

He was then taken to the hospital where a CT scan confirmed multiple blood clots in his lower abdomen and in both legs. Surgeons removed the clots which thankfully hadn’t moved into his liver and kidneys.

“I had the vaccine because I want things to go back to normal as soon as possible and the only way we can do this is by being vaccinated. I wouldn’t want to discourage people from having the Covid jab. From what they know, what happened to me is rare. It’s only going to affect maybe one or two people, so don’t let it put you off.”

Leave it to stupid people to recommend other stupid people get injured or die. He is even smiling and happy in his picture. I wonder if he has hurried to get his next shot yet….. I’m guessing he is now dead to clot to brain or heart

I hope he is not considering to get the booster either.

If this was any other medical treatment it would be prohibited. Why is it still being used and promoted as necessary health procedure?

Does he not realize they LIED to him…It is not rare and it is NOT just 1 or 2 people. How could he recommend this to anyone else!!
