Authorities Probe Rare Blood Disorder
Among Some COVID-19 Vaccine Recipients
But Even Before Investigation, Knee Jerk Reaction:
NOT Related to New Technology mRNA Jab
Here’s the Kicker:
Same Rare Disease Listed
1 Year Ago as Jab Side Effect!

More than a year ago, FDA’s list of side effects of the novel, never-before -approved, mRNA jabs included Idiopathic (cause unknown) Thrombocytopenia, a condition in which the immune system of the body turns on the platelets and destroys them. Platelet counts drop dangerously, or fatally, low and if the attack cannot be reversed, the patient will die.
Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia is also called “Immune Thrombocytopenia”. While that says nothing about what causes it, the name does recognize the mechanism of action: the immune system is mis-directed to attack itself.
Thrombocytopenia of immune origin in adults is pretty rare. Something has to mis-direct the immune system cataclysmically. The mRNA jabs captures the immune system and distorts its function massively. I find it compelling that, given that the mRNA jabs were known a year ago to cause this condition, we can confidently conclude that some of the sudden cases cropping up in newly jabbed people must be ascribed to the jab itself.
The incidence of adults with this condition is interesting: “A recent study reports the incidence of adult ITP, or how many people are diagnosed each year, is 3.3 per 100,000 adults per year. 1 The prevalence of ITP in adults—those who have ITP at any time—is approximately 9.5 cases per 100,000. ITP can strike at any age and affects more women than men ages 30 to 60.” 
So in a year, for each million adults in the US, we would expect about 33 people to receive that diagnosis or about 2.8/month in each million people. In 1.5 months (January and half of February), we would expect about 4.2 people / million to develop the condition this year. The condition is not seasonal, as far as we know.
In the US, 41 million people have received the COVID-19 jabs, according to Bloomberg.  That means that on an annual basis, we would expect 1,353 new cases of Idiopathic Thromobocytopenia. In 1.5 months, we would expect about 172 new cases of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia in those 41 million jab recipients.
But we have several dozen cases reported to the government. Let’s assume that “several” means three and that VAERS has received 36 reports of Idiopathic Thromobcytopenia post vaccine. VAERS results are known to represent between 1-10% of vaccine/jab related events. Multiply 36 by 10 and you get 360. Multiply it by 100 and you get 3600. Suppose that “several dozen” is actually 4 dozen. Multiply that by 10 and you get 480 cases. Multiply it by 100 and you get 4800.
Be conservative and assume that “Several dozen” somehow means only 2 dozen. Multiply by 10 and you get 240 cases. Multiply it by 100 and you get 2400 cases. Every one of these numbers is a great deal larger than 172 people who presumably would develop this potentially fatal disease without the help of a poorly tested jab which captures and distorts the immune function of its recipients but does not reduce viral transmission, development of disease or development of severe disease for a condition with an almost universal survival rate.
So just how many cases of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia have occurred in the entire 41 million jab recipient population? No one knows. But we know that the official line is “NOPE! NOTHING TO SEE HERE. SAFE. EFFECTIVE. MOVE ALONG. AND KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!”
Epoch Times reporter Zachary Stieber reported today that we are facing yet another devastating, and devastatingly denied, side effect of the COVID-19 jabs authorized under the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization. These injections are NOT vaccines because they do not present all or part of a disease-causing organism )the antigen) to the body to allow it to produce antibodies. Instead, they literally capture the immune system’s function in ways that have vast and, at this point, unknowable consequences for the recipients of the shots.
It is worth repeating that despite the insistent drum beat about how “effective” these jabs are, they do not prevent transmitting the virus, getting the disease or developing a dangerous clinical condition (which can include death) and that the survivorship rate of the disease in the general population is 99.8%+ making the “need” for this jab, in the minds of many, highly questionable.
The US adverse event surveillance program, VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) is totally voluntary and studies have repeatedly shown that somewhere between 1 and 10% of possible vaccine (and non-vaccine, COVID-19 jab) reports reach the system so it is commonplace to multiply numbers of voluntary adverse event reports by anywhere from 10 to 100 when attempting to understand the actual magnitude of side effects.
“Federal officials are investigating after some COVID-19 vaccine recipients have 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.
“At this time, we have not found a causal relationship,” the spokesperson said. “We will update the public as we learn more about these events.”
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. Approximately 44.7 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the United States as of Feb. 10. [Emphasis added – Dr. Rima]
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 instance involved Dr. Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old Miami doctor who died 16 days after receiving a vaccination against the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19.
Michael’s wife, Heidi Neckelmann, wrote on Facebook that the doctor was admitted to the emergency room, where medical workers found his platelet count to be zero. Thrombocytopenia causes a low platelet level and, in adults, typically requires medical treatment.
Michael was taken to an intensive care unit, where he was diagnosed with acute ITP, caused by a reaction to the vaccine, his wife said.

“No one has contacted me from Pfizer or any health agency. All I know about the investigation is what is posted in the different news articles, which is that it is under investigation,” she told The Epoch Times in a Facebook message.
Dr. Jerry Spivak, professor of medicine in the Hematology division at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Maryland, didn’t evaluate Michael and doesn’t have knowledge of his treatment.
“However, based on the rapid onset, severity, and the similar time course of thrombocytopenia in several other patients within the same time period, exposed to the same vaccine and all being men, which is unusual for immune thrombocytopenia, I think that a very strong argument can be made to the extent that, until proven otherwise, the association [with the vaccine] has to be considered real, as opposed to coincidental,” Spivak told The Epoch Times via email.
“Vaccine-induced thrombocytopenia is a recognized rare event but no one should die from it. Dismissing this event as coincidental or merely possible does an injustice to Dr. Michael, to scientific inquiry, and harm to others who may experience the same adverse event. So, yes, until proven otherwise, I consider this a COVID-19 linked event,” added the doctor, who has himself been vaccinated and advises others to get a vaccine because he believes the benefits outweigh the risks.
A Pfizer official told The Epoch Times that the preliminary investigation into post-vaccination cases of thrombocytopenia indicates there’s no connection between the vaccines and the disorder, but noted that the FDA and other federal health agencies are responsible for the investigations.
“We take reports of adverse events very seriously. We are aware of cases of thrombocytopenia in recipients of our COVID-19 vaccine as reported to the VAERS … and/or reported to Pfizer. We are collecting relevant information to share with the FDA. However, at this time, we have not been able to establish a causal association with our vaccine,” a spokesperson added via email.
“To date, millions of people have been vaccinated and we are closely monitoring all adverse events in individuals receiving our vaccine. 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.”
Moderna, the only other company that has received emergency authorization for a COVID-19 vaccine in the United States, didn’t immediately respond to a request by The Epoch Times for comment.
Authorities stressed that VAERS is a passive system, meaning anyone can submit reports. However, at this stage in the vaccination process, it’s the primary public-facing system concerning adverse events following vaccination. There are plans to implement stronger systems in the coming months.
