The government acknowledged a causal relationship to the vaccine for a domestic case of death from myocarditis after Pfizer vaccination.
As a result of reviewing deaths and severe cases after vaccination, the Corona 19 Vaccine Damage Investigation Team said that it decided to acknowledge causality in a case of a man in his 20s who died of myocarditis, 1 case of pericarditis in his 20s, and 1 case of thrombocytopenic thrombosis in his 70s. .
A man in his 20s, who died of myocarditis, received the first dose of Pfizer vaccine on the 7th of last month, and was found in cardiac arrest on the 13th of the same month, but he died.
As a result of the autopsy, myocarditis was confirmed around the heart and cardiac conduction system, and it was recognized as a causal case of myocarditis with vaccination.
The case of pericarditis after receiving the Pfizer vaccine was a man in his 20s who felt chest pain 11 hours after the second dose on the 29th of last month, and recovered after being treated at the hospital.
A woman in her 70s who felt calf pain and swelling after the first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine last month was a confirmed case of thrombocytopenic thrombosis, and the causality with the vaccine was recognized.
As myocarditis and pericarditis occur after mRNA vaccination, the health authorities have urged people to closely monitor their health for at least 3 days after vaccination and to avoid strenuous physical activity for 1 week after vaccination.
In addition, if symptoms such as chest pain, pressure, shortness of breath, pain when breathing, or palpitations appear new or worsen, it is recommended to see a medical institution as soon as possible.
