A health worker in Portugal died two days after getting the Pfizer vaccine produced by Pfizer and BioNTech, as per the reports, in a tragic accident that raised concerns about the safety of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Sonia Acevedo(age 41) worked in pediatrics at the Portuguese Institute of Oncology in Porto. After being vaccinated against COVID-19 on December 30, she was not confirmed to have experienced any negative side effects or talked about anything.
The mother-of-two suffered a ‘sudden death’ at the residence on New Year’s Day 48 hours after receiving the injection, as per the Daily Mail, prompting serious concerns regarding the vaccine’s efficacy and safety. Notably, despite being injected, Sonia seemed to have no previous health problems and did not experience any negative side effects.
“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,” Ms. Acevedo’s father Abilio Acevedo was seen as saying by Portuguese daily Correio da Manha. He is in great shock and the family is grieving.
Condition of The Women After Getting Pfizer vaccine
The employers of Ms. Acevedo verified that the deceased lady was immunized with coronavirus vaccine by Pfizer vaccine on December 30. They said that as she was vaccinated or in the hours after, they were not informed of any ‘undesirable effect.’
The Portuguese Institute of Oncology said in a statement that “With regards to the sudden death of an operational assistant from the Porto IPO on January 1, 2021, the Board of Directors confirms the event and expresses sincere regret to family and friends in the certainty that this loss is also felt here.” They further added that “The explanation of the cause of death will follow the usual procedures in these circumstances.”
Sonia, a mother of two, served as a pediatrician at the Portuguese Oncology Institute in Porto. As she was a frontline health worker, the coronavirus vaccine produced by Pfizer was offered to Sonia on December 30.
Vania Figueredo, Ms. Acevedo’s daughter, said her mom had only spoken about the ‘natural’ pain in the area where she had been needled but was good otherwise, the article added.
Ms. Acevedo was one of 538 Porto IPO workers who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health of Portugal has been informed of the incident. There has, however, been no other such case, but it is a question of the standard of the vaccine provided by the company.
