The first jab of the coronavirus vaccine has allegedly claimed the life of a woman in a nursing home in Queensland, Australia.
The 82 year old woman whose name wasn’t disclosed died on Wednesday, April 7 as confirmed by the Queensland Police.
According to the Courier-Mail, the woman who lived at the Yurana aged care facility in Springwood in Southeast Queensland took jabs for her vaccine around 10am on Wednesday.
The circumstances surrounding her death remains tentative as to whether it is connected to the vaccine she took because she was suffering several health issues including lung illness.
Chief Medical Officer Professor of Australia, Paul Kelly said it is unavoidable that people who take the vaccine die very soon. He said;
“Sadly more than 1000 people pass in aged care every week. It is inevitable, as the head of the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) has noted, that this will include people who have been recently vaccinated,”
“The medical experts and the TGA will review the specifics of such cases and reach a conclusion based on the facts.
“It can be expected that older and more frail people in an aged care setting may pass away due to progression of underlying disease or natural causes, this does not mean the vaccine has contributed to this.”
“The TGA will continue to monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines as they are rolled out in Australia and internationally,” he said.
“As with any other reported case it is investigated although at this stage there are no signs of any causal link.
