(CMR) The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention launched an investigation into the death of a Florida doctor who died two weeks after receiving the Pfizer vaccine.
Dr. Gregory Michael, who practiced at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, died on Monday.
Authorities said the doctor's death had not been definitively linked to the Pfizer vaccine; however, Dr. Michael's widow thinks the vaccine is to be blamed.
In a lengthy Facebook page, Heidi Neckelmann asked that her husband's death not be in vain and that information on his death be shared with the public.
“He was a very healthy 56-year-old, loved by everyone in the community, delivered hundreds of healthy babies and worked tirelessly through the pandemic.”
“I believe that people should be aware that side effects can happen, that it is not good for everyone and in this case, destroyed a beautiful life, a perfect family, and has affected so many people in the community,” Nickelmann said.
The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner is working with the Florida Department of Health and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to investigate the doctor's death.
