mRNA Vaccines Create An Autoimmune Response Causing Thrombocytopenia, Bleeding And Blood Clots

INTRODUCTION
Early in January 2021 a Florida doctor, Dr. Gregory Michael, died of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, a rare autoimmune disorder that causes low platelet levels. Many of us believe the Thrombocytopenic Purpura was in turn caused by a reaction to an injection of the Pfizer vaccine on December 18, 2020. Pfizer replied "we don't believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine.”(1) They also insisted there is no indication that the vaccine could be connected to thrombocytopenia. Notice “an idiopathic disease is any disease with an unknown cause or mechanism of apparent spontaneous origin.”(2) If we are right, Dr. Micheal did not die of anything “ideopathic” at all.
.
With the help of information from the doctors4covidethics and Wikipedia, I will explain the connection between the Pfizer mNRA vaccine and Dr. Michael’s death from Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura.(3) I claim no originality for this account. My goal is only to show how others understand what Pfizer does not want to understand, the way that their medication can kill healthy people. The passages from Wikipedia are used to unpack some of the central concepts of microbiology which may be unfamiliar to most of us who do not have an extensive scientific training.

HOW AN mRNA VACCINE WORKS
We must begin with a description of how an mRNA vaccine works. This account is taken from a website of the Center for Disease Control, the CDC.
.
"COVID-19 mRNA vaccines give instructions for our cells to make a harmless piece of what is called the “spike protein.” The spike protein is found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19.
COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are given in the upper arm muscle. Once the instructions (mRNA) are inside the immune cells, the cells use them to make the protein piece. After the protein piece is made, the cell breaks down the instructions and gets rid of them.
"Next, the cell displays the protein piece on its surface. Our immune systems recognize that the protein doesn’t belong there and begin building an immune response and making antibodies, like what happens in natural infection against COVID-19.
"At the end of the process, our bodies have learned how to protect against future infection. The benefit of mRNA vaccines, like all vaccines, is those vaccinated gain this protection without ever having to risk the serious consequences of getting sick with COVID-19."(4)

.
The “spike protein” is a central actor in the new COVID-19 medications. It is a small part of the virus that causes COVID-19. The basic idea is to help our immune system to protect us against future infection.  This is why it is called a vaccine, even though the method of helping the immune system is completely new and not tested for the usual 5 to 15 years.
.
The “immune cells” in the description above are known as Dendritic cells. "Their main function is to process antigen material and present it on the cell surface to the T cells of the immune system."(6) Other cells in the body "can potentially absorb vaccine mRNA, manufacture spikes, and display spikes on their surfaces, however dendritic cells absorb the mRNA globules much more avidly."(7)
"Once the viral antigens are produced by the host cell, the normal adaptive immune system processes are followed. Antigens are broken down by proteasomes, then class I and class II MHC molecules attach to the antigen and transport it to the cellular membrane, 'activating' the dendritic cell. Once the dendritic cells are activated, they migrate to lymph nodes, where the antigen is presented to T cells and B cells.This eventually leads to the production of antibodies that are specifically targeted to the antigen, resulting in immunity."(8)
.
.
SECOND COMMENT BY DOCTORS4COVIDETHICS
In their open letter, the doctors4covidethics begin by pointing out that “following intramuscular injection, it must be expected that the gene-based vaccines will reach the bloodstream and disseminate throughout the body.”(9) This is their next point:
.
“2. It must be expected that the vaccines will remain entrapped in the circulation and be taken up by endothelial cells. There is reason to assume that this will happen particularly at sites of slow blood flow, i.e. in small vessels and capillaries.”
.
So what are endothelial cells?
.
“Endothelial cells line the interior surface of blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels. The endothelium forms an interface between circulating blood or lymph in the lumen and the rest of the vessel wall. Endothelial cells are the primary cell type which contacts blood and are responsible for hemostasis and blood fluidity by preventing platelet aggregation and thrombosis.”(10)
“Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot inside a blood vessel, obstructing the flow of blood through the circulatory system.”(11)
.
.
FOURTH COMMENT BY DOCTORS4COVIDETHICS
In the previous point doctors4covidethics anticipate that the nanoparticles in the mRNA vaccines will damage the endolthelial cells by being taken up by them. This is their next point:
.
“4. It must be expected that endothelial damage with subsequent triggering of blood coagulation via platelet activation will ensue at countless sites throughout the body.”
.
This process of coagulation via platelet activation is explained in the following passage:
.
“Coagulation begins almost instantly after an injury to the endothelium lining a blood vessel. Exposure of blood to the subendothelial space initiates two processes: changes in platelets, and the exposure of subendothelial tissue factor to plasma factor VII, which ultimately leads to cross-linked fibrin formation. Platelets immediately form a plug at the site of injury; this is called primary hemostasis. Secondary hemostasis occurs simultaneously: additional coagulation (clotting) factors beyond factor VII respond in a cascade to form fibrin strands, which strengthen the platelet plug. Disorders of coagulation are disease states which can result in problems with hemmorhage, brusing, or thrombosis.”(12)
.
.
FIFTH COMMENT BY DOCTORS4COVIDETHICS
“5. It must be expected that this will lead to a drop in platelet counts, appearance of D-dimers in the blood, and to myriad ischaemic lesions throughout the body including in the brain, spinal cord and heart. Bleeding disorders might occur in the wake of this novel type of DIC-syndrome including, amongst other possibilities, profuse bleedings and haemorrhagic stroke.”
.
“A lesion is any damage or abnormal change in the tissue of an organism.”(13)
.
“Ischemia is a restriction in blood supply to tissues, causing a shortage of oxygen that is needed to keep tissue alive.”(14)
.
So “myriad ischaemic lesions throughout the body” means many kinds of tissue damage caused by an inadequate supply of blood.
“Haemorrhagic stroke is a sudden bleeding into the tissues of the brain.”(15)
.
“D-dimer is a fibrin degradation product, a small protein fragment present in the blood after a blood clot is degraded by fibrinolysis. D-dimers are not normally present in human blood plasma, except when the coagulation system has been activated, for instance because of the presence of thrombosis tor disseminated intravvascular coagulation.”(16)
.
“Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a condition in which blood clots form throughout the body, blocking small blood vessels. Symptoms may include chest pain, shortness of breath, leg pain, problems speaking, or problems moving parts of the body. As clotting factors and platelets are used up, bleeding may occur. This may include blood in the urine, blood in the stool, or bleeding into the skin. Complications may include organ failure.”(17)
.
.
SIXTH COMMENT BY DOCTORS4COVIDETHICS
“6. The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein binds to the ACE2 receptor on platelets, which results in their activation [6]. Thrombocytopenia has been reported in severe cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection [7]. Thrombocytopenia has also been reported in vaccinated individuals [8].”
.
“Thrombocytopenia is a condition characterized by abnormally low levels of platelets, also known as thrombocytes, in the blood.”(18)
.
This is a quote from footnote [6] in the above passage which explains what “platelet activation” means.
.
“Spike protein directly stimulated platelets to facilitate the release of coagulation factors, the secretion of inflammatory factors, and the formation of leukocyte–platelet aggregates.”(19)
.
In other words, the COVID-19 spike protein – which the mRNA vaccines via their nanoparticles introduce into the blood stream – causes coagulation in the blood vessels. This in turn reduces the number of platelets in the circulatory system. Remember with Disseminated intravascular coagulation clotting factors and platelets can be used up.
.
.
SO WHAT DOES THIS ADD UP TO?
After an mRNA vaccination, the nanoparticles containing the spike protein will travel throughout the body. The nanoparticles in the circulatory system will be taken up by and damage the endothelial cells which line the inside of blood vessels. The damage to the endothelial cells will cause blood coagulation as the platelets are activated. The coagulaltion will cause the number of platelets to decline as they are incorporated into the blood clots. As a result there will be many kinds of tissue damage caused by an inadequate supply of blood. There could also be profuse bleeding and sudden bleeding into the brain.
.
Their final point is that abnormally low levels of platelets in the circulatory system (Thrombocytopenia) is also caused by severe cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Thus the spike protein can cause the same damage no matter how it enters the blood system, whether by SARS-CoV-2 infection or by an mNRA vaccine.
.
This is also the view of Hamid Merchant, Subject Leader in Pharmacy, University of Huddersfield. In a paper published on the 15th of March, 2021, he writes:
.
“In author’s opinion, it is plausible that CoViD genetic vaccines may have a direct role in spurring autoimmune response against platelets that may clinically manifest in thrombocytopenia, haemorrhage, and blood clots.”(20)
.
.
WHAT DO WE FIND IN THE REPORTS OF ADVERSE REACTIONS?
According to the “COVID-19 mRNA Pfizer- BioNTech vaccine analysis print” updated on the 18th March 2021, there were 11 cases of Immune Thrombocytopenia and 13 cases of Thrombocytopenia with one death from the latter.(21)
.
The following report comes from the USA:
.
“By the end of January, 32 cases of a decreased platelet count, 14 cases of thrombocytopenia, and 11 cases of immune thrombocytopenia were recorded in people who had received either Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccines in the U.S.”(22)
.

.
At this point we need to look at the death of a Florida doctor Gregory Michael MD. This is part of the report by his wife, Heidi Neckelmann:
.
"He was vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine at MSMC on December 18, 3 days later he saw a strong set of petechiae (dots on your skin which are a sign of blood leaking from capillaries under your skin) on his feet and hands which made him seek attention at the emergency room at MSMC. The CBC that was done at his arrival showed his platelet count to be 0 (A normal platelet count ranges from 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per micro liter of blood.) He was admitted in the ICU with a diagnosis of acute ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, a rare autoimmune disorder that causes low platelet levels) caused by a reaction to the COVID vaccine."(23)
.
Dr Michael first experienced blood leaking from capillaries under his skin. This was described by the doctors4covidethics as “endothelial damage with subsequent triggering of blood coagulation via platelet activation will ensue at countless sites.” Next it was found that he had a zero platelet count. This was fully expected by the doctors4covidethics: “It must be expected that this will lead to a drop in platelet counts,” just what results from Thrombocytopenia.
.
I don’t believe Pfizer, governments, the media or even most people who discuss these new vaccines recognize that now there is a plausible explanation for the death of Dr. Michael supplied by the doctors4covidethics, the burden of proof now lies with Pfizer to prove that this causal explanation is incorrect. What have we missed?
