According to British media reports quoted by the Russian satellite news agency on January 25, a 92-year-old woman died in a nursing home in North Tyneside, northeast England, days after receiving the first dose of coronavirus vaccine.
According to several media reports, Mary Green was vaccinated on New Year’s Eve. Five days later, the elderly man with Alzheimer’s disease tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Due to her weakness, she was unable to be sent to the hospital.
“What she needed in her last days was not care in a nursing home, but hospital treatment, but she didn’t get in the hospital,” Mary’s son Chris Green told the Chronicle.
As of January 24, about 6.3 million people aged 80 and above and front-line health care workers and nursing home workers had received the first dose of Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine, according to the British government data.
The World Health Organization’s drug safety team said Friday that after some countries, such as France and Norway, there was no evidence that the Pfizer vaccine caused the death of weak elderly patients.
