A Colorado man claims he developed blood clots after receiving a single dose of the modern coronavirus vaccine.
The report reported that Jeff Johnson of Brighton ended up in the emergency room after experiencing pain and swelling in his left leg KDVR.
Johnson was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which occurs when a clot is deep in the body such as in the thigh or lower leg.
Although these clots are different than those seen in patients receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the 49-year-old said he panicked because he was about to die.

Johnson told KDVR that he received the Morden vaccine at the Salud Family Health Center in Brighton, where he lives.
There was no problem until about a week later when he began to feel swelling, pain, and tenderness in his left leg.
‘I was worried, naturally. I know that blood clots are bad and I was afraid of dying, ‘he told the station,
When he went to the ER, doctors found two blood clots in his left leg, and he was told that he had DVT.
DVT occurs when a blood clot is formed in one or more deep veins in the body, usually the leg.
The J & J vaccine was stopped in the US after nine people – seven after clinical trials approved two more shots – developed rare, but severe, brain blood clots from more than 7 million vaccinations.
About half of people do not have symptoms, but those who do experience pain, swelling, red or discolored skin, or a feeling of warmth in the affected leg.
The cumulative chance of developing DVT during the lifetime varies from two percent to five percent and the probability of dying is less than 0.01 percent.
Johnson told KDVR that his doctor said clots could be caused by the modern vaccine, but there is no evidence.
The 49-year-old said she became more concerned after hearing about the problems related to the vaccine in Jammu and Kashmir.
The clot associated with the Jammu and Kashmir shot is different, however, and is called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST).
CVST is a rare type of blood clot that blocks the sinus channels of brain blood, which can cause bleeding.
Therefore, nine patients have developed so far – two in clinical trials and seven after the vaccine has been approved, of which one died and two are in critical condition.
This led the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to suggest on Tuesday the rollout of the J&G vaccine until more data could be collected.
Dr. Pradeep Dhar, The vice president of medical services at Salad, where Johnson got his shot, told KDVR that CVST is not affiliated with the modern vaccine.
He said that he had seen three reports of experienced people, like Johnson, after vaccination out of at least 18 million appointments, and recommended immunization to all.
“The risk of COVID infection and complications outweighs the risk of clotting with any vaccination,” Dhar said.
