A Portuguese female health worker, Sonia Acevedo has died two days after getting the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
It was the first report of fatality arising from the vaccine, developed by Pfizer and German firm BioNTech.
There had been other allergic reactions to the vaccine.
This included a Mexican doctor who was admitted in the ICU after she experienced seizures, difficulty breathing and a skin rash.
The 32-year-old female doctor is based in Mexico’s northern state of Nuevo Leon. She suffered the severe allergic reactions after receiving the Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine.
In contrast, Portugal’s Sonia Acevedo, the mother-of-two did not suffer any adverse side-effects after being vaccinated.
Ms Acevedo’s father Abilio Acevedo told Portuguese daily Correio da Manha: ‘She was okay. She hadn’t had any health problems.
‘She had the Covid-19 vaccine but she didn’t have any symptoms. I don’t know what happened. I just want answers. I want to know what led to my daughter’s death.’
