75-year-old Israeli man dies after getting vaccine

A SEVENTY-year-old man from Beit Shean died yesterday morning from cardiac arrest, about two hours after receiving the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.

The man received the vaccine at 8:30 in the morning, and waited for the customary time at the health clinic before he was released to his home feeling well.  Sometime later, the man lost consciousness and was later confirmed dead from heart failure.

The Health Ministry said: “A 75-year-old man from the north of the country suffering from active heart disease and malignant disease, who has undergone a number of heart attacks, was vaccinated this morning against the coronavirus and died at home shortly after the procedure.

“The Director-General of the Ministry of Health, Prof. Hezi Levy, has appointed a case investigation committee headed by the head of the Safety and Quality Division in the Ministry of Health.”

“We share in the family’s grief.”

It added that “initial examination does not show a link between the unfortunate incident and the vaccination”.

“The vaccination campaign continues,” it stated.
