I call Bullsh$t,, Dr. doesn't know sh$t!, Said so in his statement in that NY times arcticle. :p:D\n\n\nI disagree with Dr Spivak. One case of ITP after covid-19 vaccine does not prove causation. As I said before, ITP is not a terribly rare disease. Some patients require splenectomy as a last resort. Brain Hemorrhage as a consequence of ITP is an expected complication. ITP always has a very abrupt and acute onset. Unless there are more cases of fulminant ITP following Covid-19 vaccination, the case you sight is coincidental. With the number of people now vaccinated, if these vaccines were causative in ITP we would be seeing a lot more cases by now. Dr Spivak's remarks were irresponsible and he should not have made them. \n\nI had 30 odd years treating very serious diseases including ITP and its complications. So I'm entitled to disagree with Dr Spivak.\n\nYou really need to stop discouraging vaccination. We have to push back against this nonsense you are spouting, hard. It should be obvious that these vaccines are much safer than catching Covid-19, and absent vaccination everyone will eventually be exposed. This is a high fatality infection and far higher than getting vaccinated.\n\nWe need to get 80% vaccinated ASAP. This will reduce dangerous mutations. I would also point out that there are studies showing identifiable long term effects in up to 70% of survivors. The most worrisome, is the high incidence of abnormal CT scans. An epidemic of early dementia down the road is something, many of us are really worried about. Then there is the worry of the high incidence of post covid-19 cardiac, pulmonary and renal abnormalities There are real possibilities that this pandemic may have a dreadful long tail. The last thing we need is people promulgating the nonsense that you are about the safety of vaccines.
