The district of Cuxhaven, Germany confirmed on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, that a 12-year-old child died two days after taking the Pfizer vaccine. Police are investigating and an autopsy was ordered due to the short interval between vaccination and death.
The result of the autopsy is still pending and is expected to be released this week at the earliest. “The current status of the autopsy suggests a connection,” Kirsten von der Lieth, press spokeswoman for the district said about the vaccine and the child’s death.
NDR reported, “As can be seen from the preliminary autopsy protocol, experts from the Forensic Medicine Institute at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf consider it likely that “the death was due to the vaccination.” The autopsy has been completed but samples are still being examined.
According to a report from the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) in Langen (Hesse), the child had serious previous illnesses, including a cardiovascular before taking the vaccine.
After this tragic case, the Cuxhaven district has pulled back and will only vaccinate healthy students.
From now on, only children without known pre-existing diseases should be vaccinated in the schools in the district area. All other children should go to their family doctor for vaccination, as he knows possible pre-existing diseases better, it is said. In the district of Cuxhaven, three mobile vaccination teams are in action on behalf of the district administration. Coincidentally, all three did not have a vaccination appointment in a school on Thursday. Only one shoulder min in an Otterndorf school was due. There, the company doctor, who was supposed to vaccinate the students, first postponed the appointment to wait for the final autopsy result.
