While there has been some concern about a rare blood-clot side effect in people who’ve had the vaccine, including one case in Quebec, Health Canada has deemed the vaccine to be safe. Chances of experiencing the side effect are 1 in 250,000, whereas a woman taking the birth control pill has a 1 in 1,600 chance of a blood-clot side effect.
