Miami Obstetrician Develops Bleeding Disorder, Dies After Getting COVID-19 Vaccine

Gregory Michael, MD, an obstetrician in private practice at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach received a first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech experimental mRNA COVID-19 vaccine on Dec. 18 and died 16 days later of a cerebral hemorrhage (stroke).1 Within three days of taking the shot, he developed symptoms of a severe autoimmune bleeding disorder, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), often referred to as immune thrombocytopenia.2

According to his wife, the 56-year old OB/GYN physician was healthy when he received the COVID-19 vaccine and began exhibiting symptoms of bleeding under the skin within 72 hours. He was hospitalized in the intensive care unit but none of the treatments were able to stop the internal bleeding.3 The case is being investigated by the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner, which is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Florida Department of Health.4

According to the Miami Herald, as of Jan. 7, 2021, a Pfizer official said Dr. Michael died of a “highly unusual clinical case of severe thrombocytopenia, a condition that decreases the body’s ability to clot blood and stop internal bleeding.” The Pfizer spokesman added: “We are actively investigating this case but we don’t believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine.”5

CBS report quoted the Pfizer spokesman as saying:

There have been no related safety signals identified in our clinical trials, the post-marketing experience thus far or with the mRNA vaccine platform. To date millions of people have been vaccinated and we are closely monitoring all adverse events in individuals receiving our vaccine. It is important to note that serious adverse events, including deaths that are unrelated to the vaccine are unfortunately likely to occur at a similar rate as they would in the general population.6
