People unlikely to suffer from thrombocytopenia after receiving COVID-19 vaccine

The COVID-19 situation has brought the entire research communities all over the world to focus on developing vaccines. As a result, several countries came forward, and hopefully, now we got vaccines from some companies. The U.S people are receiving both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines currently.

Having unfortunate to said that, some people in the U.S developed thrombocytopenia, a rare blood disorder after receiving COVID-19 vaccines. At the end of January, there were 32 cases of decreased platelet count, 14 cases of thrombocytopenia, and 11 cases of immune thrombocytopenia. However, the cause of the condition after vaccination remains unknown. The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) continuously records the side-effects caused by the vaccine.

We know the condition of thrombocytopenia, which results from lowering the blood platelet level. Platelet helps in forming a clot when there is extensive bleeding, and it’s a life-saving action. It possibly occurs due to hereditary or immune-mediated destruction of platelets, likely called immune thrombocytopenia or idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). In such cases, antibodies develop against the body’s own platelets. The symptoms comprise uncontrolled bleeding, red skin spots in the body, blood in even stool or urine.

For instance, a man in Florida suffered from the condition after injecting the vaccine, and later, he died off due to an internal hemorrhage in the brain. Moderna and Pfizer said they were closely monitoring the effects of the vaccine and were not able to establish a causal association with their vaccine. Some scientist says that the rare side effects happen when the vaccine spreads to the larger population.
