American federal officials are investigating COVID-19 vaccine recipients who developed the rare blood disorder thrombocytopenia, with at least several cases resulting in death.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating and assessing the reported cases, an agency spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email.
The blood disorder was listed by the FDA last year as a possible adverse event outcome from getting a COVID-19 vaccine, alongside other serious adverse events such as Guillain-Barré syndrome and death.
Several dozen case reports of post-vaccination thrombocytopenia have been submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a passive reporting system managed by the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In one case, a 56-year-old male in Florida, who was injected with Pfizer’s vaccine, was rushed to the hospital several days later, after noticing “small blood tinged spots.” He was diagnosed with thrombocytopenia.

A 36-year-old Pennsylvania woman said she woke up in early January, about two weeks after getting Pfizer’s vaccine, with blood blisters all over her mouth and went to the emergency room. She was admitted and diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), a version of the disorder.
The most high-profile case involved Dr. Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old Miami doctor who died 16 days after receiving a vaccination.
As reported by GreatGameIndia, the healthy Miami doctor died just 3 weeks after receiving the experimental Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine shot.
His wife Heidi Neckelmann says her husband was completely healthy until he had the jab on December 18 at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
Meanwhile, deaths of elderly who recovered from COVID-19, but died after the vaccine was administered, have raised questions among nursing homes in Kentucky and Arkansas, in America.
As reported by GreatGameIndia earlier, Pfizer has paid $2.3 billion in the largest healthcare fraud settlement in history to resolve criminal and civil liability arising from the illegal promotion of certain pharmaceutical products.
Even, the US government paid over $57 million in compensation for vaccine injuries and deaths till March 2020 alone.
Meanwhile, Governments have signed secret agreements to protect the pharma companies from liabilities, leaving the victims of vaccine with no legal recourse.
