A 56-year-old Greek woman died at Kalavryta Hospital just a few minutes after her second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
The middle-aged woman, who was vaccinated during her 10:00 AM appointment in the morning of Friday at the hospital was pronounced dead just a few minutes after she received her second inoculation with the Pfizer coronavirus inoculation.
Just ten minutes after she was vaccinated, she complained of a “burning” pain in her chest and her back, and collapsed.
Doctors on the scene tried to revive the woman, and even to intubate her, but stopped their frantic efforts one hour after she collapsed.
Woman may have suffered a heart attack, pulmonary edema
Reports say that it is possible that she had suffered a heart attack, along with pulmonary edema, or a filling of the lungs with fluid. There was no positive response from any of the hour-long efforts to resuscitate her.
The 57-year-old also reportedly suffered from underlying diseases. The medical examiner’s office, which is now conducting a thorough review of her case, will disclose their findings at a later date.
The woman’s death is particularly poignant since she and her husband had moved from the capital city of Athens to the village of Kertezi, Kalavrita, in order to feel safer during the pandemic.
