Allergic reaction and myocardial infarction in a 91-year-old female
For 60 years, a dozen of high-income countries provides some form of compensation for injuries and deaths following vaccination. The injury support programs worldwide are starting to pay the victims of COVID-19 vaccines.
A 91-year-old Japanese woman died from an acute allergic reaction and acute myocardial infarction after getting vaccinated. She had underlying conditions, including a cerebral ischemic attack and hypertension, which could have been related to her death.
An expert subcommittee of the health ministry assessing the health damage caused by COVID-19 vaccinations approved the payment for her family on July 25, 2022.
Nine cases have been screened for eligibility for lump-sum death benefits after receiving a COVID-19 shot. Eight cases have been put on hold, and this is the first time the relief system was applied to a post-COVID-19 vaccination death.
