Blood vessels were breaking on his hands and feet, prompting him to go to the emergency clinic, where he was diagnosed with the condition.
There is no medical certainty that the shot had anything to do with the condition, the Florida Department of Health has actually figured out in a joint examination with the CDC, which examined samples from the autopsy.
A Miami Beach physician who passed away 16 days after getting a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in January appears to have actually ended from natural causes, officials say.
An autopsy on Dr. Gregory Michael, 56, has actually concluded he passed away from an issues of immune thrombocytopenia, a condition that prevents blood from thickening and which can trigger internal bleeding.
Michael was an OB-GYN at Mount Sinai Medical Center when he died and suffered a hemorrhagic stroke on Jan. 4.
He had actually gotten the Pfizer shot on Dec. 18 and his wife said at the time that he suffered a “strong reaction to the COVID vaccine” 3 days afterwards.
2 weeks later on, and despite treatment, he suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and died unexpectedly.
” And we are closely keeping an eye on all unfavorable occasions in people getting our vaccine.
” It is essential to keep in mind that major unfavorable events, including deaths that are unassociated to the vaccine, are unfortunately most likely to happen at a comparable rate as they would in the general population.”
” To date, countless people have been vaccinated,” Pfizer representative Jerica Pitts told The Post in a statement after Michaels death.
