By BBN Staff: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) hasn’t identified any cases in which a COVID-19 vaccine has caused someone’s death.
The death of a Florida doctor just weeks after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine went viral but scientists warned that those isolated cases do not mean the vaccines are to blame.
Epidemiologist at Boston Children’s Hospital, Dr. John Brownstein said that the vaccines have had incredible safety profiles in the trials and post-authorization.
“We have to be very careful about causality. There are going to be spurious relationships, especially as the vaccine is targeting elderly or those with chronic conditions. Just because these events happen in proximity to the vaccine does not mean the vaccine caused these events,” Brownstein said.
In addition, Brownstein said that every time someone gets sick or dies shortly after getting a vaccine, government agencies investigate to ensure there’s no link.
To date, over 26 million people in the US have received a dose of the vaccine.
The CDC estimates that out of every 1 million people, two or three who receive the Moderna vaccine and around 11 who receive the Pfizer vaccine may suffer a severe allergic reaction.
Some people experience side effects like fever, fatigue and a sore arm. But so far, the CDC hasn’t identified a single case in which the vaccine caused a person’s death.
