A 48-year-old resident of Thebes, who was vaccinated against the coronavirus on May 10, was diagnosed with a thrombosis, as a result of which she was admitted to the intensive care unit.
Fragment of the interview to the MEGA TV channel of the victim’s sister:
“My sister was vaccinated with Johnson & Johnson on May 10th. On May 17, she was admitted to Thebes hospital, where she was diagnosed with gastroenteritis. But already on May 20, it became clear to the doctors that the patient had started a thrombosis (in the leg and pulmonary artery). On an emergency basis, the sister was admitted to the Evagelismos hospital with progressive internal bleeding in the kidneys and stomach. After 17 hours, she was admitted to intensive care. I was told that her life is hanging by a thread. Her health is now considered potentially dangerous, with little signs of improvement. She is only 48 years old, she has problems with the musculoskeletal system since birth. “
“A person with limited mobility is the main candidate for thrombosis. All people with disabilities have an increased risk of blood clots. This could have happened regardless of the vaccine. World experience shows that there are 110 million doses of the vaccine and 400 cases of the disease, and there are no specific risk factors, ”emphasized Theodoros Vasilakopoulos, professor of intensive care pulmonology.
However, he noted that “this case needs to be thoroughly investigated,” and explained that if “thrombosis was detected after vaccination,” this does not mean that the vaccine will be to blame in all cases.
