A high school athletics coach from a private school in Fairfield County, CT, unexpectedly suffered a brain hemorrhage earlier this week.
The unfortunate news was brought to our attention because the school requires employees to be vaccinated for covid. We were asked if this might be an adverse effect from covid vaccination. We found a shocking 22,635 cases of adverse events in VAERS that mentioned the word “hemorrhage" with 1,531 of these cases being fatal. Another 4,545 cases cited the alternate spelling “hemorrhage” with 663 of those reports being fatal. We also looked at reports of thrombosis, which is the formation of a blood clot, and thrombocytopenia, which is a coagulation disorder. We found an astounding 29,876 cases of thrombosis, of which 1,512 cases were fatal. And we found 6,459 cases of thrombocytopenia, of which 466 cases were fatal. Additionally, we checked the NIH PubMed database for published articles about potential relationships. We searched for “fatal cerebral hemorrhage after COVID-19 vaccine” and found 13 studies. We read a case about a woman in her thirties who died of a fatal cerebral hemorrhage after covid vaccination. She was previously healthy, but developed headaches one week after vaccination. Three days later, her condition deteriorated rapidly, she developed slurred speech, uncoordinated movements and reduced consciousness. Despite every treatment effort taken, she died the following day. Another study looked at 5 cases of a combination of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT), intra-cerebral hemorrhage and thrombocytopenia that presented to a hospital during a two-week period. A clinical hallmark was the rapid and severe progression of disease in spite of maximum treatment efforts, resulting in fatal outcome in 4 out of 5 patients. All cases had received the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine 1-2 weeks earlier and developed a characteristic syndrome thereafter. One article even concluded that health care providers should be familiar with the clinical presentations, pathophysiology, diagnostic criteria, and management of vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, acknowledging that these were a “rare but severe and potentially fatal complication of COVID-19 vaccination.” By the way, the word “hemorrhage” appears 17 times in the Pfizer post-marketing document, including 26 cases of cerebral hemorrhage, along with 30 other cases of hemorrhagic stroke. It’s clear hemorrhages are a well-known adverse effect of covid vaccination. If this coach’s brain hemorrhage was the result of vaccination, who is responsible for paying the hospital bills? The coach? The school that adopted the vaccine mandate? Because we know it’s not the pharmaceutical companies! And the question on everyone’s mind whether anything can be done to reduce this risk for those who are already vaccinated… we’ve reached out to some experts for an opinion, and will let you know if we get a response. In the meantime, we hope and pray that the coach recovers from this traumatic experience. * * * * * UPDATE: In this week’s Community Connections, Greenwich First Selectman Fred Camillo commented about the books found at Greenwich library. He said that, "some residents are offended by a very graphic young adult book available at our library. I personally found this book to be disgusting." Fred shared a link to the library’s process for objecting to materials, noting that the necessary information can be found on page 8. We thank Fred for sharing this information, and very much appreciate how quickly he followed up on residents' concerns. ________________
