A group of government experts studying this phenomenon ratified the death of a 68-year-old man after receiving a dose of a vaccine on March 8, the Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.

The researchers evaluated the coincidence of 31 reported cases of serious adverse effects and insisted on the need for the population to wait 30 minutes at the vacciantion center after receiving their dose of the vaccine.

Most anaphylactic reactions occur during that period and prompt treatment prevents deaths, stated Dr. NK Arora.

Specialists pointed out that the mere reports of deaths and hospitalizations as serious adverse events do not automatically mean that they were caused by the vaccine.

Only research and evaluations properly conducted by coincidence can help to understand whether there is a link between the event and the vaccine, the report said.

In two other cases of anaphylaxis, both people were hospitalized and recovered, the source added.

India reported 26,200 adverse cases of Covid-19 immunization, a rate of just 0.01 percent of the inoculated population, the Zee News website said.
