Michigan boy dies in sleep three days after being vaccinated – .


A 13-year-old Michigan boy died in his sleep three days after receiving the coronavirus vaccine and the Centers for Disease Control has launched an inquest into the death, a report said on Sunday.

Jacob Clynick – who was preparing to enter high school in the fall – received his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at a Walgreens in Zilwaukee, Mich. On June 13, his aunt told the Detroit Free Press.

Jacob was in good health and had no underlying health problems. The only side effects he had experienced from the vaccine were the ones most others had to deal with: fatigue and fever.

On June 15, two nights after receiving the second dose, Jacob complained of an upset stomach before falling asleep and never woke up.

“He passed away in the middle of the night at the house,” said his aunt, Tammy Burages.

The CDC’s investigation was confirmed by the county health department. The medical examiner performed an autopsy, but the cause of death was not determined.

“The investigation of whether there is a correlation between his death and the vaccination is now at the federal level with the CDC,” the medical director of the Saginaw County Health Department told the Free Press in a statement.

“Meanwhile, the Department of Health continues to encourage families to speak with their doctors to weigh their own risks and benefits of vaccination. ”

Jacob’s death was reported a month after the CDC recognized “relatively few” cases of myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, in adolescents and young adults who received the vaccine, although most cases were minor. .

The American Academy of Pediatrics agreed, calling the disease an “extremely rare side effect,” adding that most cases are not serious and people recover normally without treatment.

As Jacob’s family continues to mourn the boy’s untimely death, his aunt has expressed the importance of determining whether the vaccine is completely safe for children.

“If there are factors that may make it more risky for some children (to get the vaccine), hopefully health officials can figure out what it is,” she said.
