A statement published to the Ministry of Health website said a third death is considered linked to the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.
The Covid-19 Vaccine Independent Safety Monitoring Board (CARM) notified the Ministry of the death.
“This is a tragic circumstance, and the Board expresses their sympathy to the individual’s whānau and friends,” the statement said.
The Board reviewed a CARM report of a death in December last year. There wasn't enough information provided at the time to determine whether it was in-fact the vaccine.
In March of this year, the Board met to consider whether the vaccine was linked, as the individual had myocarditis at the time of death. They received a dose of the Pfizer vaccination in the weeks prior.
“The Board considers that the development of myocarditis was possibly due to vaccination with the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. It’s important to note this case is with the coroner who is still investigating the cause of death,” the statement continued.
“The Board also considers that the circumstances of this case does not impact or change the known information on myocarditis.”
All three cases linked to vaccination reported in Aotearoa New Zealand are currently with the coroners to determine their causes of deaths.
