A man in California died hours after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, a local sheriff’s department reported over the weekend.
On Saturday, the Placer County Sheriff’s Department informed residents via Facebook about a multi-agency investigation after a person, who tested positive for Covid late last month, died after receiving the vaccine last Thursday.
“The individual was administered a COVID-19 vaccine several hours before their death on January 21, 2021,” the sheriff’s department wrote. “The vaccine was not administered by Placer County Public Health. There are multiple local, state, and federal agencies actively investigating this case; any reports surrounding the cause of death are premature, pending the outcome of the investigation. Our thoughts are with the family of the deceased.”
CBS Sacramento quoted a woman who claimed she knew the 56-year-old man who died, as he was her grandfather’s caretaker. The woman was reportedly at the assisted living facility when the man received the vaccine.
