A 9th grader in the northern province of Phu Tho died on Tuesday less than 12 hours after receiving the 2nd dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 jab.
The teenager had her first dose on December 3rd, 2021, after which she experienced dizziness and had difficulty breathing.
She was transported to the Ha Hoa District medical center for treatment and later recovered.
VN Express had further details:
She had her second dose last Monday. Her mother had told health workers about the girl’s side effects following her first shot, but they asked her to get the second shot anyway. Twenty minutes following the second shot, the girl experienced tightness in her chest, dizziness, difficulty in breathing and seizures.
She received emergency treatment on the spot before being transferred to the Ha Hoa District medical center. On arrival, she began to vomit blood, fell into a coma and her heart stopped. Her family received news that she died Tuesday morning.
The Phu Tho Department of Health has not officially confirmed the cause of death yet.
