MOSCOW (Sputnik) - A resident of Belgium has died five days after receiving Pfizer/BioNTech's vaccine against COVID-19, the Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products (FAMHP) said in a statement, adding that an investigation has been launched.
"On 14 January 2021 … the FAMHP was informed of the death of an 82-year-old with health problems, five days after vaccination. The case will be further investigated to determine whether there is a causal link between vaccination and the individual's death", the agency said in a statement on Thursday.
