A 30-year-old who was vaccinated with the Janssen vaccine in Daegu died three days after the vaccination, and the health authorities began an investigation.
It is said that this is the first death related to COVID-19 after receiving the Janssen vaccine.
According to the family of the deceased 38-year-old A, Mr. A was vaccinated with Jansen's vaccine at a clinic in Suseong-gu, Daegu on the 10th.
Mr. A had a fever on the first day of the inoculation, and the fever dropped from the next day, but his blood pressure continued to drop.
On the afternoon of the 12th, when Mr. A's blood pressure dropped significantly, his family moved him to the emergency room of a local university hospital.
At the hospital, he was treated with fluids and painkillers, but he eventually died around 3 am on the 13th.
His family said he had once been treated for a blood-related disease, but was cured at the hospital.
A's family said, "I usually lived a healthy life, but since my health deteriorated rapidly after vaccination, I hope that the relationship between the vaccine and death will be revealed."
