65-year-old woman in Athens dies short after vaccination; authorities on alert

Greece’s health authorities have been set on alert on Tuesday after a 65-year-old woman died half an hour after she received a vaccination against Covid-19.

According to estate-broadcaster ERt, the woman had her vaccination at the Health Center of Ilion, suburb of western Athens, around 1 o’ clock noon.

Following the health protocols she waited at the center for 20 minutes for possible allergic reaction. Then she left.

Passerby found her dead in a nearby public park half an hour later.

The woman had underlying health issues such as diabetes and coronary heart disease.

She had reportedly received the Astra Zeneca vaccine.

Authorities tend to rule out the vaccine as the cause of the woman’s sudden death, saying that possible sideeffects (like thrombosis) would be not cause so quickly but rather later, ERT reported.

A autopsy is to determine the exact causes o the woman’s death.

The Health Ministry and the National Vaccination Committee investigate.

On Monday, the president of the NVC Maria Theodoridou said that the AstraZeneca vaccine is safe and that it was not clear yet if it indeed was causing thrombosis.

Theodoridou stressed that 28 thrombosis cases have been recorded in 17 million doses that have been administered. She added that clinical studies and the relevant recordings continue.

  1. It is incorrect that only 28 thrombosis occurred. In Germany alone it were 31 until yesterday. Germany stoppt vaccinations with AstraZeneca for people under 60 years old yesterday.

  2. ‘On Monday, the president of the NVC Maria Theodoridou said that the AstraZeneca vaccine is SAFE and that it was NOT CLEAR YET if it indeed was causing thrombosis.’

    Its a perfect statement to say that it is SAFE, because it is not clear yet that is NOT SAFE. LOL

  3. “28 thrombosis cases have been recorded in 17 million doses that have been administered” ..

    There are always exceptions and poor reachtion to any type of vaccine or treatment …

    My wife and I have our appointment for the vaccine on 4/2 …

    … 🙂 …

  4. These problems with certain vaccines are the consequence of the fact that who runs Big Pharma compamies are the financial managers, NOT chief medical officers, pharmacicts or doctors. All that really matters is $.

  5. Ironic that Germany and others originally banned the use of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine for those over 65 and now, it’s not to be given to the under 60s and safe for over 60s. Confused? I am.
    Let’s be honest about these figures: if they are true then, statistically, the AZ vaccine is probably safer than your average ‘flu injection. Has anyone bothered to compare the underlying possible side effects of other drugs and mortality rates? Well, probably someone within the relevant institutions but we have no reliable information available to the common man. Ergo, we all make up our own minds based on a lack of knowledge.
    Better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
