Man dies of heart attack after taking Covid-19 vaccine


A 75-year-old man from Beit She’an died of a heart attack two hours after receiving vaccination against COVID-19 on Monday morning.


But, the main side effects reported in the trials of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were pain, swelling and redness at the site of injection and chills, tiredness and headache in general. But these effects usually only persisted for a few days at most.

According to The Sahara Reporters, Israeli health ministry as saying that the man victim, had preexisting conditions and had suffered from heart attacks in the past.

A total of 380,000 citizens with the first dose of the Coronavirus vaccine while 99,000 people were vaccinated on Sunday, according to Health Minister, Yuli Edelstein.

Already, Chezy Levy, the Director-General of the Health Ministry, has launched an investigation into the incident.

“We share in the grief of the family,” he said in a statement.

The outlet, revealed that the deceased, was injected at around 8:30 am at a Clalit Health Services Clinic.

He stayed at the facility, as is customary, for a short period of time to ensure he had no side effects. When he felt well, the clinic released him.

According to Levy, the early discoveries do not reveal a link between the man’s death and his inoculation.

When Pfizer presented its safety data to the US Food and Drug Administration in early December, it was found that two trial participants had died after receiving the vaccine. One of the deceased was immune compromised, meaning the person’s immune defences were low.

The IDF vaccination campaign kicked off on Monday.

Israel hopes to vaccinate as many as 150,000 people per day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday night. If successful, 2.25 million Israelis will be vaccinated within a month and a half.

In response to the report of those deaths, Israel’s Midaat Association said when vaccines are administered to at-risk populations, “there may be unfortunate cases. One should not infer from this about the safety of the vaccine, but welcome the transparency required from the pharma companies in the drug approval process.”

In large trials of tens of thousands of people, death can occur without any connection to the trial, but companies such as Pfizer are required to report those deaths, Midaat said.

“According to the published data, six of the participants in the experiment died, two of whom received the vaccine and four of the control group,” said Dr. Uri Lerner, Midaat’s scientific director. “After an in-depth examination, no connection was found between the experiment and the cause of death.”
