A 12-year-old child dies two days after vaccination in Germany

Vaccination in Germany: In northern Germany, a 12-year-old child died two days after the crown vaccination. Forensic doctors believe that the death is likely to be correlated with the vaccine.

The tragedy happened in Cuxhaven District. A 12-year-old boy died two days after being vaccinated with Biontech / Pfizer vaccine against coronavirus. This is reported by the NDR. 

According to preliminary analysis the death is related to receiving the coronavirus vaccination. The autopsy results will be ready today Thursday.

According to a district spokesman, the child, who was suffering from previous illnesses, was injected with the vaccine from Biontech / Pfizer (Comirnaty) a few days ago. Two days later he died suddenly.

Due to the short interval between vaccination and death, an autopsy of the body was ordered as a connection cannot be ruled out, it is said.

As can be seen from the preliminary autopsy protocol, experts from the Institute of Forensic Medicine at the Hamburg-Eppendorf University Medical Center probably consider that “the death was due to vaccination,” writes NDR.

Due to the child’s previous illnesses, however, “other causes cannot be completely ruled out.” A final result is expected soon.

The head of the Cuxhaven district health department expressed deep condolences to relatives. “We are facing a particularly tragic case here,” Kai Dehne told NDR. “From a purely statistical point of view, the serious side effects of the vaccine that lead to death occur extremely rarely, but the affected family is nonetheless destroyed.”

Five children dead after vaccination in Germany

Reported deaths that are related to coronavirus vaccination are extremely rare in children and adolescents but still occur. We wrote about it here: Coronavirus: Moderna vaccines suspended in Sweden and Denmark among young people amid reports of rare effects.

According to a report by the Paul Ehrlich Institute, as the highest vaccination authority, there were 1,809 suspected adverse reactions after vaccination in children and adolescents aged 12 to 17 between the start of the vaccination campaign (December 27, 2020) and September 30, 2021 against coronavirus.

In five cases there was a fatal result between two and 24 days after vaccination.

Three adolescent patients had severe pre-existing disease, but in these three cases “the causal relationship with vaccination could not be assessed” because “the symptoms and course of the disease were different” and “had no clinical similarities.”
