Perception of risk is a strange thing to analyse.
With regard to the current actions of some countries with regards to the AZ it is interesting to hear the views of Silvestro Scotti, head of the Italian Federation of General Practitioners. He said today "The crazy thing is that, even if the correlation between the vaccine and blood clots were proved, it would be a rate of 0.007 out of a thousand. To give an example: the birth control pill, which is used widely and doesn't worry anyone, has a proven risk rate of 0.6 in a thousand. Even in the worst-case scenario, the risk/benefit ratio for this vaccine is extraordinarily favourable. That needs to be explained to people"
"The World Health Organisation's Margaret Harris has said 268 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines from various developers have been administered worldwide and none have been shown to cause a single death"
