Swine Flu Vaccination and ITP
Jan 13, 2010

I just wanted to say that my father-in-law's platelets dropped to 1 within a week of receiving the swine flu vaccination. The Hospital has confirmed to him that the vaccination was the cause. He was give haemoglobin and within a few days it went up to 150. He is now back to normal.

Response from Dr. Henry

Situation noted-thanks for posting.
