Dr.Hinshaw confirms Alberta’s first death from VITT following vaccination from the AstraZeneca vaccine


Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health tweeted last night:

I am sad to report tonight that we have confirmed Alberta’s first death from VITT following vaccination from the AstraZeneca #COVID19AB vaccine.
My sincere condolences go out to those grieving this loss.  https://t.co/rCQTQYjJnP (1/3)

My apologies for sharing this sad news so late, but we’d promised to alert Albertans as soon as possible in such confirmed instances. (2/3)

While any death is tragic, it’s important to remember that risk of dying or other severe outcomes remain far greater than the risks following AstraZeneca vaccine. This marks the second VITT case and only related death out of 253,000 AstraZeneca doses in Alberta to date. (3/3)
