In the last three days several stories have popped up asking the question of side effects related to the mRNA version of the Covid-19 vaccine created by Pfizer. In January of 2021 a doctor in Florida died of a brain hemorage two weeks after receiving the vaccine. The autopsy showed his body had lost the ability to clot blood. Thrombocytopenia is a rare blood disorder that is starting to appear in people who have had the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine. This is the leading theory for the death of the doctor in Florida and since then 36 have reported symptoms after having the vaccine. The number is suspected to be higher since the 36 known cases are from a website where people can report side effects after the vaccine. This doesn’t account for the number of people who have symptoms but don’t connect it with the vaccine or have the blood disorder but don’t know do to lack of physical symptoms.
There have also been an increase in the number of people dying after taking the vaccine but had Covid-19 before taking it. Two nursing homes in Kentucky and Arkansas have reported seniors dying after being given the mRNA vaccine. In Kentucky four seniors died the same day they were given the vaccine, 3 of those 4 had tested positive and survived the virus prior to the shot. In Arkansas four seniors died within a week after being given the shot, all of them tested positive for covid-19 after being given the shot.
In Florida, a medical doctor died less than two weeks after receiving the first shot of the Covid-19 vaccine made by Pfizer. The vaccine was given on December 19, 2020 and the doctor died on January 3, 2021. Three days after receiving the shot, Dr. Gregory Michaels a56 year old OBGYN with his own practice, notice spots on his skin and was taken to the local emergency room. Upon arrival Dr. Michaels was admitted to the ICU where he was never discharged. Michael’s body lost its ability to have the blood clot and he died of a stroke with no previous history of this condition. The Miami medical examiner is currently investigating the death to see if it is linked to the vaccine. Pfizer says it is also investigating the death while denying that the vaccine is to blame.
The Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine is the first ever mRNA vaccine. Instead of creating a weakened version of a virus this version rewrites the DNA of white blood cells training them to fight Covid-19. Long term effects of the vaccine are not known and many steps of the research process were skipped in the process of creating this vaccine. The first day of administering the vaccine in England saw a nurse have a severe allergic reaction putting her into anaphylactic shock and needed to be resuscitated. The UK government immediately stated that the vaccine could only be administered in a facility where people could be resuscitated if needed.
Meanwhile, in India, the largest producer of vaccines caught on fire with five people dying. The Serum Institute is one of the foreign companies Pfizer depends on for the production of the Covid-19 vaccine overseas. The Serum Institute says the fire will not effect the production of the vaccine.
