Autoimmunity after Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Vaccine: A Case of Acquired Hemophilia A

The global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) from infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has resulted in high death rates and acute and chronic morbidity in all countries.[1] [2] The development of vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 has dramatically reduced the transmission rate, the occurrence of COVID-19 by reducing the hospitalization rate, the severity of disease and incidence of mortality, and the transfection rate. The Food and Drug Administration and European Medicines Agency approved vaccines include two mRNA vaccines, the BNT162b2 from Pfizer-BioNTech and the Moderna vaccine, and two viral vector vaccines, the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 (now called Vaxzevria) from AstraZeneca and the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine.[3] [4] [5]
