A Florida doctor, who died a few weeks after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, has been identified by his wife on Facebook.
The doctor, Gregory Michael, 56, was an Obstetrician at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, posted by his wife, Heidi Neckelmann. The Florida Department of Health is investigating the death.
Her husband, “Love”, died of her life on January 3, Nekelman said in her post, “due to a strong reaction to the COVID vaccine.” She said she was healthy, loved the community, and gave birth to hundreds of babies while working “tirelessly” through the epidemic.
The love of my life, my husband Gregory Michael MD is a maternity department that had his office at Mount Sinai Medical Center…
On December 18, Michael received the Pfizer vaccine. Three days later, he had a strong set of petticoats on his legs and hands, forcing him to seek medical attention in an emergency room at Mount Sinai Medical Center. According to the Mayo Clinic, petechiae are a series of red, purple, or brown that appear on the skin caused by bleeding under the skin that often appears like rashes.
A complete blood count test was performed which showed his platelet number to be zero. Nekelman said that a normal platelet count is typically 150,000 to 450,000 per microliter of blood. Michael was then admitted to the intensive care unit with thrombocytopenia, a blood condition. Nickelman stated that this was due to a reaction to the COVID vaccine.
For two weeks, doctors tried to increase Michael’s platelet count, with experts from across the country trying to help. The results were meaningless.
The surgery was performed as a last resort, and during that time, he suffered a stroke due to a lack of platelets, which would “kill him within minutes.”
According to Nickelman, during the epidemic, Michael was a “pro-vaccine lawyer”, which is why he decided to shoot himself. But Nickelman warned that people should be aware that vaccines can cause side effects and “this is not good for everyone.”
She said, in this case, it “destroyed a beautiful life, a perfect family, and has affected so many people in the community.”
While Nickelman contributes to her husband’s death to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, it is unconfirmed if her death was vaccination-related. The Florida Department of Health has launched an investigation.
In a statement to USA Today, Communications Director Jason Mahon stated, “The CDC and FDA are responsible for reviewing COVID-19 vaccine safety data and submitting that information to federal recommendations on vaccine administration. States will continue to provide all available information to the CDC as they lead this investigation. “
Michael, the creator of the COVID vaccine, finds Pfizer and BioNote aware of his death. The drug companies told USA Today, “We are actively investigating the case, but we do not believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine.”
To date, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that 5.3 million COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the US
According to Michael’s professional website, he was a resident of Miami and did his MD from St. George’s University School of Medicine. He married Nickelman during his residency and the two shared a daughter. Prior to his death, Michael worked at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach for 12 years.
As of Thursday morning, Nickelman had received more than 3,300 comments on his Facebook post and 17,000 shares.
