Authorities still waiting for full report on Perak teen's post-vax death

The health authority is waiting for a full report from a forensics expert before they can determine the cause of death of a teenager, who died a day after receiving his second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Perak Health Department director Dr Ding Lay Ming reportedly said the 15-year-old school student received his vaccine at SMK Gunung Rapat vaccination centre on Oct 23, before he went unconscious the next morning following a breathing difficulty.

"The teenager was sent to a private hospital for treatment, before he was pronounced dead at 10.40am," said Ding, as quoted by Harian Metro.

According to the director, a post-mortem conducted the same day revealed that the victim had suffered spontaneous bronchospasm.

They then sent the victim's tissue samples for further examination by forensic pathology experts at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh.

"We are still waiting for the complete post-mortem result to determine what was the cause of his death," Ding said.

She said the health authority was informed that the teenager did not have an allergy to any vaccine or medicines. He also had no chronic illness.

"The teenager also did not report any problem or complication after he received his first dose earlier," she said. - Mkini
