New Zealand reports 1st death linked to Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine

NEW ZEALAND: New Zealand has reported what authorities said was the country’s first recorded death linked to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

According to New Zealand health officials, a woman died after she was administered the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine.

The country’s health ministry said an independent COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring board had concluded that the woman’s death was due to myocarditis which is a rare side effect of the Pfizer vaccine.

The health ministry said: “This is the first case in New Zealand where a death in the days following vaccination has been linked to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.”
