A family has claimed that a woman has died from a reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine as she passed away 24 hours after receiving a jab.
A family from Kansas has claimed that a woman in the family died from a reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine she received 24 hours prior to her death.
The woman is named Jeanie M. Evans, aged 68, and was from Effingham. Evans’ family claims that she died “unexpectedly” on Wednesday, only 24 hours after she received a COVID-19 vaccine.
Evans died at the Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka. Evans received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine a day before her death at the Keystone Early Learning Center, and at the moment, it isn’t clear which COVID-19 vaccine she was administered.
Once Evans began feeling an adverse reaction to the vaccine, she was transported by ambulance to the hospital, where she later died. According to Stormont-Vail Hospital, an official cause of death has not yet been determined.
The hospital said, “The individual was transported to our hospital after receiving the vaccine in the region. A cause of death has yet to be determined. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family.”
Officially, there has been no link between Evans’ death and the COVID-19 vaccine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are yet to identify any deaths that are directly caused by a COVID-19 vaccine.
Additionally, health officials have said that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks that are taken when a vaccine is administered.
