The FAMHP thus indicates in its weekly report of the adverse effects of vaccines against Covid-19 that it was informed this Thursday that an 82-year-old man with health problems had died five days after the vaccination. A more in-depth investigation will therefore be carried out “in order to determine whether there is a cause and effect link between the vaccination and the death”. In particular, an autopsy will be performed.
“In the vulnerable target group that is currently vaccinated, we must take into account the appearance of serious health problems and death, regardless of vaccination,” said the federal agency. “Further analysis is essential to determine whether vaccination played a role in this death. »Further information will be provided in future FAMHP newsletters.
Between December 28, 2020 and January 12, 2021, a total of 34,979 doses of Pfizer / BioNTech’s vaccine were administered, according to data from the Federal Corona Commission.
Epidemiologist Pierre Van Damme (UAnvers) spoke about this death. The expert considers this to be “logical”: “We are really talking about the most vulnerable part of the population who are now receiving the vaccines. So it makes sense that someone dies during this period, ”he told Nieuwsblad.
He adds and reassures: “The fact that there will be an investigation is to be absolutely certain that the vaccine itself was not the cause. Based on the facts, I also consider it highly unlikely that this is the case. There is no need to panic about vaccines ”.
