Post-Jab Death Not Linked To COVID-19 Vaccine Says DDC Spokesperson

Sopon Iamsirithaworn

The death of a person 10 days after being given a COVID-19 vaccine was by natural causes, not a consequence of the inoculation, according to a senior health official.

On Friday, Thai media quoted Dr Sophon Iamsirithaworn, deputy director-general of the Department of Disease Control, as saying the patient had an aortic aneurysm.

The patient had suffered from a chronic illness since birth and required continual treatment.

The person underwent surgery,  but the illness escalated and caused the patient’s death about 10 days after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, he said.

The Public Health Ministry would release further details later, he said.
