Long Term COVID-19 Vaccine Data–Evidence of Sustained Vascular Injury and Thrombosis at 2 Years

Direct Observation of Retinal Blood Vessels Reveals Anticipated Disaster

MAY 5, 2023

By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH

Early in 2020 I published with former US FDA physician Dr. Zhang that the SARS-CoV-2 viral Spike protein was damaging blood vessels and causing blood clotting. Our observations were this was occurring at the level at the vascular endothelium. This means capillaries would be systemically injured if exposed high concentrations of the Spike protein. Dr. Bruce Patterson has demonstrated the Spike protein is long-lasting (months to years) in the human body after both severe COVID-19 infection and vaccination. This leads us to a concern, that the vaccinated would have sustained vascular damage over the long-term. Now the first two-year data report in and the news could not be worse.  (See link for article)

Risk assessment of retinal vascular occlusion after COVID-19 vaccination

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccines are associated with several ocular manifestations. Emerging evidence has been reported; however, the causality between the two is debatable. We aimed to investigate the risk of retinal vascular occlusion after COVID-19 vaccination. This retrospective cohort study used the TriNetX global network and included individuals vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines between January 2020 and December 2022. We excluded individuals with a history of retinal vascular occlusion or those who used any systemic medication that could potentially affect blood coagulation prior to vaccination. To compare the risk of retinal vascular occlusion, we employed multivariable-adjusted Cox proportional hazards models after performing a 1:1 propensity score matching between the vaccinated and unvaccinated cohorts. Individuals with COVID-19 vaccination had a higher risk of all forms of retinal vascular occlusion in 2 years after vaccination, with an overall hazard ratio of 2.19 (95% confidence interval 2.00–2.39). The cumulative incidence of retinal vascular occlusion was significantly higher in the vaccinated cohort compared to the unvaccinated cohort, 2 years and 12 weeks after vaccination. The risk of retinal vascular occlusion significantly increased during the first 2 weeks after vaccination and persisted for 12 weeks. Additionally, individuals with first and second dose of BNT162b2 and mRNA-1273 had significantly increased risk of retinal vascular occlusion 2 years following vaccination, while no disparity was detected between brand and dose of vaccines. This large multicenter study strengthens the findings of previous cases. Retinal vascular occlusion may not be a coincidental finding after COVID-19 vaccination.



Not being a paid-subscriber, I could not access the study McCullough mentions; however, there have been case reports showing long post-COVID “vaccination” syndrome (LPCVS).

  • In this one, a 39 year old male with an uneventful medical history developed severe adverse reactions immediately after the third dose of Moderna.  Symptoms included brief fever, headache, flickering eyes, skin rashes, tiredness, insomnia, disorientation, dizziness (brain fog), tiredness, impaired thinking and concentration, emotional disorders, neck swelling, pulling/shaking/pulsating feeling inside the head, white light after eye closure, whole body vibration, panic attacks, pain in left ear, word finding disorders, various skin reactions, and non-specific white matter lesions in a frontotemporal distribution.
  • This retrospective analysis of clinically confirmed LPCVS states it is an “increasingly recognized disease that occurs after SARS-CoV-s vaccination and lasts for more than 4 weeks.  Important excerpt:

Although LPCVS leads to long-term disability, it is not widely recognized and not always accepted by manufacturers, health authorities, and even scientists. LPCVS should not be dismissed as a functional disorder and patients with LPCVS should be taken seriously.

  • This study asks if adverse events are being missed and then goes on to state that adverse events occurring with the COVID injections have never happened with other previously administered vaccines and are mainly vascular side effects that have occurred in the brain, vascular system of the limbs, abdomen, and heart, including CVST/CVT, VITT, DIC, DVT, PTE, CLS, AHA, ITP, SVT, cardiac arrest, HF, MI, pericarditis, and myocarditis, respectively. Ocular involvement includes uveitis, bilateral retinal detachment, central serous retinopathy, acute macular retinopathy, AAION and AZOOR, and paracentral acute middle maculopathy. The thyroid gland can also cause thyroiditis. Neurological side effects such as GBS, Bell’s palsy, stroke, and transverse myelitis have also been observed. It causes filler on the face. In addition to facial involvement, skin infections such as erythema multiforme, chilblains, and cutaneous vasculitis have also been reported. It causes autoimmune hepatitis in the liver and has caused many complications for the kidneys. Symptoms of immune rheumatologic events have also been observed in some patients. Lymphadenitis is one of the immune complications in the lymph nodes. In addition to the above, it also causes spontaneous abortion and menstrual problems in women. CVST/CVT, Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis/Cerebral venous thrombosis; VITT, Vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia; DIC, Disseminated intravascular coagulation; DVT, Deep vein thrombosis; PTE, Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy; CLS, Capillary leak syndrome; AHA, Acquired hemophilia A; ITP, Immune thrombocytopenic purpura; SVT, Supraventricular tachycardia; HF, Heart failure; MI, Myocardial infarction; AAION, Arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy; AZOOR, Acute zonal occult outer retinopathy; GBS, Guillain-Barré syndrome.

I think reality is beginning to come home to roost.  It’s going to be pretty hard to continue to sweep these devastating injuries and sudden deaths under the rug as they have been doing; however, until people decide to speak up and be willing to connect the dots, ‘the powers that be’ will continue to ignore what’s happening before their very eyes and pretend it doesn’t exist.
