Japanese Surgeon Calls for End to COVID Vaccine Booster Program in Letter to Prominent Medical Journal

Dr. Kenji Yamamoto, a Japanese cardiovascular surgeon, has penned a letter to the peer-reviewed journal Virology that calls for an end to the COVID-19 vaccine booster program in the country.  “As a safety measure, further booster vaccinations should be discontinued,” Yamamoto wrote. The highly regarded surgeon cited the fact that COVID-19 vaccines have been linked to vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia, which has been fatal in a number of patients.
