Risk of what? Thrombus from vaccine or bleeding from heparin? Clot from vaccine VERY rare (<1:1,000,000). So rare that prophylaxis NOT recommended. Bleeding from heparin? Sure, real (and much higher) risk. Effects of Lovenox and heparin dissipate in 12-18 hrs. Would not use unless specifically recommended by doctor
