The first official death linked to blood clots caused by the Moderna vaccine has been reported to the CDC. The 65-year old man was admitted to a Pittsburgh hospital after headaches, discomfort in his legs, and shortness of breath 10 days after his second dose of the Moderna vaccine.¹ The unnamed man died two days later with the diagnosis thrombosis with thrombocytopenia, or TTS.² He had no connection with the drug heparin which is also linked to blood clots, nor any infections, including COVID that would explain the clots.¹
The American College of Physicians published a journal article regarding the case:
“In retrospect, this patient met the criteria for VITT or TTS,” the report authors wrote. “He developed thrombocytopenia and thrombosis within 5 to 10 days after vaccine administration. The distribution of thrombosis, especially the cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, was characteristic of VITT or TTS. Most of his clotting and other relevant work-up were consistent with the syndrome.”
“Had we suspected VITT or TTS earlier, we would have treated the patient differently.”¹
Have the studies provided enough information?
Researchers had believed they’d figured out why the J&J and AstraZeneca vaccines had been linked to blood clots. However, to this point, they hadn’t been considered by doctors nor researchers to be linked to the mRNA vaccines. German scientists believed to have discovered why AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines were linked to blood clots. They believed an adjustment to the vaccine could solve the problem. The theory relates to how the adenovirus vaccines are able to permeate the nucleus of the cells, while the mRNA vaccines have been believed not to have that capability.³,⁴ However, recently studies have shown that the spike proteins of the mRNA vaccines travel throughout the body in ways earlier not considered possible.⁵
The BMJ (British Journal of Medicine) has considered the connection of the mRNA vaccines and blood clots as far back as March.
Platelets are anucleate cells that continue to defy conventional logic and are involved in mRNA translation and protein synthesis. It is likely that mRNA vaccines can directly infect platelets and mRNA translation and spike protein synthesis leading to an autoimmune response against platelets. There have been at least 43 cases of immune thrombocytopenia recorded in VAERS database with Pfizer and Moderna CoViD-19 vaccines, and there is at least one death reported with immune thrombocytopenia after Pfizer CoViD-19 vaccine.⁶
Have other cases of blood clots been suspected as linked to mRNA vaccines?
According to VAERS, this isn’t the first case of blood clotting reported. In fact, as of June 25, there have been 1908 cases that have occurred soon following vaccination.
Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old physician from Florida received his Pfizer vaccine on December 18th. He died two weeks later from a “highly unusual clinical case of severe thrombocytopenia, a condition that decreases the body’s ability to clot blood and stop internal bleeding.”⁷
In April, a man from Brisbane, Australia also developed blood clots following the mRNA Pfizer vaccine. The 40-year-old police sergeant was diagnosed just 3 days after receiving the mRNA Pfizer vaccine.⁸
A few weeks ago, we reported the case of a young, hopeful college athlete, Everest and his father. Everest developed 3 blood clots in and around his brain that went undiagnosed for several days with doctors unwilling to link them to the Pfizer vaccine. After Everest was released from the hospital, his father was admitted with over 100 clots in his lungs from the Moderna vaccine. You can watch the interview of Everest’s mom, Cherie and Everest here.⁹
What are the experts saying?
Many experts are saying that since there is also a risk of blood clots from COVID, that this shouldn’t sway people from the vaccine.
