An 88-year-old Israeli man died in a hospital in Jerusalem yesterday, Tuesday, hours after receiving the Pfizer vaccine against the Coronavirus.
In a statement, the doctors confirmed that the patient had pre-existing serious health problems.
The elderly man received the first dose of the “Pfizer” vaccine during the afternoon as part of the Israeli comprehensive vaccination program. Still, his health deteriorated, and he later lost consciousness at his home.
Paramedics, who were called to the scene, resuscitated him while being transferred to Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center, where doctors later announced his death.
The hospital said that the man was suffering from “chronic, complicated and difficult” health conditions, without specifying their type.
This is the second death in two days, as a 75-year-old Israeli man died after receiving the vaccination against the Coronavirus.
And the Israeli Ministry of Health said that this older man suffering from heart disease and had previously suffered heart attacks died at his home shortly after receiving the vaccine.
