As explained by this study from Neurological Sciences, brain hemorrhages are a severe neurological complication associated with the COVID-19 jabs:
"The most devastating neurological post-vaccination complication is cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Cerebral venous sinus is frequently reported in females of childbearing age," https://t.co/b2Q37qur3p

As a matter of concern, increasing number of reports about adenoviral vector vaccine-induced cerebral vascular adverse events, like cerebral venous thrombosis, arterial stroke, and intracerebral hemorrhage, is getting published in leading medical journals. These reports are alarming as post-vaccination vascular events culminate either in severe disability or death. Vaccine-induced cerebral vascular adverse events are generally associated with severe immune-mediated thrombotic thrombocytopenia. Thrombocytopenia generally clinically manifests within 5 to 30 days after administration of adenovirus vector-based vaccines. In post-vaccination thrombotic thrombocytopenia, a picture similar to that of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia is encountered. When heparin binds platelet factor 4, there is generation of antibodies against platelet factor 4. Antibodies against platelet factor 4 result in platelet destruction and trigger the intravascular blood clotting . The post-mortem examination, in patients with vaccine-induced thrombocytopenia, demonstrated extensive involvement of large venous vessels. Microscopic findings showed vascular thrombotic occlusions occurring in the vessels of multiple body organs along with marked inflammatory infiltration . The vector-based vaccines contain genetic material of SARS-COV-2 that is capable of encoding the spike glycoprotein. Possibly, leaked genetic material binds to platelet factor 4 that subsequently activates formation of autoantibodies. These autoantibodies destroy platelets [16, 17].
Cerebral venous thrombosis
Cerebral venous thrombosis is the one of the most feared devastating COVID-19 vaccine-associated neurological complication. Cerebral venous thrombosis should be suspected in all vaccinated patients, who has persistent headache. Headache is generally unresponsive to the analgesics, and some patients may have focal neurological deficits. Affected patients are generally females of younger ages
Johns Hopkins Medicine defines Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST):
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) occurs when a blood clot forms in the brain’s venous sinuses. This prevents blood from draining out of the brain. As a result, blood cells may break and leak blood into the brain tissues, forming a hemorrhage.
This chain of events is part of a stroke that can occur in adults and children. It can occur even in newborns and babies in the womb. A stroke can damage the brain and central nervous system. A stroke is serious and requires immediate medical attention.
This condition may also be called cerebral sinovenous thrombosis.
