Did Miami Beach doctor die from reaction to COVID-19 vaccine?
Just two weeks after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, a Miami Beach doctor dies after developing a condition that caused him to have a stroke. The medical examiner is looking into the cause of his death.
Investigation underway into whether condition that led to stroke a result of Pfizer shot.
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Questions remain in the death of a 56-year-old Miami Beach doctor who died Sunday, just a little over two weeks after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
Gregory Michael, M.D., whose website states he was in private practice in obstetrics and gynecology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, received the vaccine at the hospital where he was affiliated on Dec. 18.
It is not clear, however, if the 56-year-old doctor’s death is related to the shot, but an investigation is underway.
A Facebook post by Michael’s wife described him as “very healthy.” His website said he was an avid tournament and big game fisherman and also a rescue certified scuba diver.
His wife said that three days after getting the shot, Michael noticed severe broken blood vessels on his feet and hands, prompting him to go the emergency room.
There, he was diagnosed with immune thrombocytopenia, which prevents blood from clotting. After two weeks of treatment, she writes on the Facebook post, Michael had a hemorrhagic stroke caused by the lack of platelets, which took his life in a matter of minutes, she said.
