New Zealand on Monday reported first death linked to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. This information has been given by the New Zealand Department of Health. The ministry's statement did not disclose the woman's age. The board, in its report, admitted that the woman had died due to Myocarditis. This was due to the side effects of Pfizer's vaccine.
Myocarditis is a form of inflammation of the heart muscle that can limit the organ's ability to pump blood and can cause changes in heartbeat rhythms. However, the board also noted that the woman may have other medical problems that may have worsened after the vaccination. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health has sought an answer from Pfizer on this matter. Pfizer's media team declined to comment immediately.
