New Zealand links death to Pfizer COVID vaccine: it remains safer to be vaccinated | TheHill – The Hill

” With the existing readily available information, the Board has considered that the myocarditis was probably due to vaccination in this individual,” a declaration from New Zealands Covid-19 Vaccine Independent Safety Monitoring Board said of the man, who passed away within two weeks of receiving his first Pfizer vaccine, per Bloomberg.The statement kept in mind that “Covid-19 infection can itself be a cause of myocarditis” and stated “it stays much safer to be vaccinated than to be contaminated with the infection.” The board also highlighted that “the benefits of vaccination with the Pfizer vaccine for Covid-19 continue to greatly outweigh the danger of such rare side effects.” The World Health Organization (WHO) has acknowledged that “a very unusual signal of myocarditis” has been reported from some COVID-19 vaccines.
