An elderly Australian woman died just hours after receiving a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine – although it is not known whether the stroke played a role in her death, officials said.

The 82-year-old woman lived at the Yurana nursing home in Queensland and received the Pfizer vaccine around 10 a.m. Wednesday, News.com.au reported.

But less than three hours later, the woman died at home, the outlet reported.

It is not known whether her death was caused by the vaccine, as she suffered from underlying health issues.

Australian Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly said: “At this point there is no sign of a causal link,” the Australian Associated Press reported.

“Older and more frail people in an elderly care setting can be expected to die due to the progression of an underlying disease or natural causes, this does not mean that the vaccine is there. contributed, ”he said.
