Courageous Discourse™ with Dr. Peter McCullough & John Leake
Steroid Responsive Still's Disease after COVID-19 Vaccination
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH Approximately a third of COVID-19 vaccine recipients develop transient fever. It is important to recognize that a constellation of symptoms in addition to fever should prompt recognition of Still’s Disease. Adult onset Still disease, also known as systemic onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis, is a systemic inflammatory …
