Covid vaccinations are still a really sensitive subject these days, following a lot of time of the pandemic. The covid pandemic managed to change people’s lives for good, and this is one of the reasons for which the subject continues to be in the spotlight.
Covid vaccines-related deaths
An MSc Biology student and NewsBreak contributor has recently shared an article about post covid vaccine deaths to reveal some interesting issues.
“What happened inside the body of people who died shortly after getting the Covid-19 vaccines then? Was the vaccine involved in the cause of death or not? Knowing this is crucial for reasons such as claiming a pension, ensuring the public that potential vaccine complications are investigated, and evaluating or disproving claims of vaccines killing people,” he began the article.
The same contributor notes in the article that “Vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) is a known risk of DNA vaccines from AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, especially among younger females, characterized by life-threatening blood clots plus low platelets.”
It’s also been revealed that platelets are blood-clotting cells, so their depletion makes one prone to excessive bleeding. VITT also has a specific biomarker: anti-platelet factor 4 (anti-PF4) antibodies.

Pfizer wanted the fourth shot for seniors
Back in March of this year, it was reported that the pharmaceuticals company filed an application with U.S. regulators seeking emergency use authorization for a second booster shot of their COVID-19 vaccine for people aged 65 and older.
The submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration includes data collected in Israel, where a second booster is authorized for many people over age 18, according to the latest reports.
“An analysis of data from over a million adults 60 years and older showed rates of confirmed infections and severe illness were lower among individuals who received an additional booster dose of the vaccine administered at least four months after an initial booster (third) dose compared to those who received only one booster dose, the companies said.”
It’s also important to note the fact that the U.S. health officials, including top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci have raised the prospects of a fourth shot many times.
