Woman dies of complications after receiving AstraZeneca Covid 19 vaccine

An Alberta woman in her 50s has died after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, according to the province’s chief medical officer of health.

In a news release issued Tuesday night, Dr. Deena Hinshaw said the fatality was confirmed to be linked to “vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT).”

“In comparison, Albertans 50 to 59 who are diagnosed with COVID-19 are 350 times more likely to die from that infection than to experience VITT after an AstraZeneca vaccine.
