Man dies after receiving COVID-19 vaccine



A man who was one of the first people in Switzerland to be vaccinated against Covid-19 has died.

The news was released Wednesday, but officials have not yet released information about his death or said his death was linked to the vaccine.

“We are aware of the case,” a spokesman said, adding that the matter had been referred to Swissmedic.

Details about the time lapse between the vaccination and the man’s death were also not disclosed.

The first vaccinations were done in Switzerland last week, and the person was vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine. The vaccine was given mainly to the elderly.

Switzerland has received 107,000 vaccines and expects to receive another 250,000 doses next month.

Earlier it was reported that a 45-year-old nurse in California has tested positive for Covid-19 after receiving Pfizer Inc’s coronavirus vaccine, an ABC News affiliate reported Tuesday.
