January 7th – According to CNN on the 6th, a doctor in Florida died two weeks after being vaccinated against Pfizer against the novel coronavirus. Local health departments, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Pfizer have all begun to investigate the matter.
The deceased, Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old obstetrician-gynecologist who was reportedly vaccinated against Pfizer against COVID-19 on December 19, 2020, died on the night of January 3-4. The exact cause of death is still being analyzed.
Darren Capra, the head of operations at Miami-Dade County Forensic Office, said they were investigating the matter with the Florida Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and there is no conclusive evidence that the vaccine was related to his death.
Pfizer is also closely monitoring this matter.” Pfizer and BioNTech have learned that a medical worker died 16 days after the first dose of vaccine was given.” “This is a rare clinical case of severe thrombocytopenia that reduces the body’s ability to clot blood and intra-tissue bleeding,” the company statement said.
Pfizer said that the cause of death is not considered to be related to the vaccine at present.
According to the data of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 5.3 million people in the United States have been vaccinated against the first dose of the novel coronavirus.
In response, the CDC statement said that more information is being collected and that information will be assessed and published in a timely manner after that.
