The unnamed ninth-grader from the Vietnamese province Phú Tho had her first dose of the vaccine on December 3rd, 2021, after which she experienced dizziness and had difficulty breathing.
She received her second dose on Monday, January 17th.
The girl’s mother had told health workers about the girl’s side effects following her first shot. However, she was told to go ahead with the second jab.
Twenty minutes following the second dose, the girl experienced tightness in her chest, dizziness, difficulty breathing, and seizures.
She received emergency treatment on the spot before being transferred to the Hạ Hòa district medical center where she began to vomit blood upon arrival.
The teenager then fell into a coma and died shortly after.
