Comparing mortality stats for the 15 to 65 age range between Sweden and Canada is pretty damning. Sweden's figures look like a pandemic, followed by normalcy.
In Canada, younger people have been dying at abnormally high rates the entire time we've had lockdown.
Israel mortality stats are quite interesting... Notice that peak in younger male deaths? That corresponds to the vaccination program ramping up for that age group. True for older ages too, though for them, could just be covid.
Israel is small enough it's hard to interpret stats like that. But definitely concerning.
Pfizer is supposed to have very detailed data on everyone vaccinated and the outcomes... AFAIK that hasn't been released.

"Fearing" coronavirus surge, families of Toronto FC players relocate to team's base in Florida, a state that hasn't had lockdown since September.
Great writeup on why it these blood clots were 1) so alarming, 2) definitely caused by Astra Zeneca.
"So four people out of 132,000 who received the Astra-Zeneca vaccine developed the normally exceedingly rare combination of thrombocytopenia with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. All had received the Astra-Zeneca vaccine seven to ten days earlier."
"It’s so uncommon that only a handful of cases have been reported in the entire medical literature. Up to now, that is."
