February 9 According to US media reports, the New York State Health Commissioner said that last Sunday (February 7) local time, an elderly man in his 70s in Manhattan, New York, died shortly after being vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.
According to Fox News, New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Juke said that the unnamed elderly vaccinated person fell to the ground when he left the vaccination site.
Although security personnel and first aid personnel subsequently rushed to the elderly man, he died.
A statement said, “The incident happened about 25 minutes after he was vaccinated.
During the 15-minute observation period after vaccination, he did not show any adverse reactions or discomfort.
Initial signs suggest he has no allergic reaction to the vaccine.”
Juke has highlighted that a recently approved vaccine is safe, which has been unanimously endorsed by public health experts.
“Vaccines, universal masks and social distancing help to beat the pandemic,” he said. “I encourage all eligible locals to get the vaccine.”
