A third person in New Zealand has died after taking the Covid-19 vaccine, as announced by the Ministry of Health.
The Covid-19 vaccine is suspected to have taken yet another life in the small island country of New Zealand. According to a press release from the New Zealand Government – Ministry of Health, a vaccinated person suffered myocarditis and his death is linked to the Pfizer vaccine.
“This is a tragic circumstance, and the Board expresses their sympathy to the individual’s [family] and friends.”
In late 2021, a 26-year-old man died shortly after taking the Pfizer vaccine. He also suffered from myocarditis. Before that, a 13-year-old boy died after taking his vaccine. It is important to note that the coroner is still investigating the cause of deaths in all of these cases.
