Only having 6 reported cases out of more than 6.8 million doses given is a pretty good batting average - that is less than 1 in a million. Of course, the number of blood clot cases could be under-reported.

To be fair you have a pretty good bating average of NOT dying from Covid too..

I think it is situation dependant. For the average person, the potential for contact with symptomatic individuals is going to be a lot less than for me. I have some 87 year old with a productive cough hacking all over the room every shift. Multiply that by 2-3 other patients over the weekend, by 50 weekends a year, my contact with some droplets, even with precautions is going to be higher at some point than the average joe. 

There's no doubt you're more likely to get it.  I don't even see how you could NOT get it in your situation.  It would take a miracle, even after vaccination since that's not supposed to prevent you from getting it, it only makes your symptoms milder (unless they changed their minds on that again).  But your chances of dying from it still seem very low.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
