Director of Family Health Services in the Ministry of Health and Wellness, Dr. Melody Ennis, says the Ministry has commenced a comprehensive probe into each case of death after taking the COVID 19 vaccine.
She says each death post vaccination is being examined.
But Dr Ennis says someone dying after taking the vaccine doesn’t necessarily mean that death was caused by taking the jab.
She says the aim of the probe is to determine the cause and effects of death and being inoculated.
Dr Ennis warns the investigation will take time.
Dr Melody Ennis, Director of Family Health Services in the Ministry of Health and Wellness,speaking last evening at the Ministry’s COVID Conversations media conference.
Nearly 150,000 people in Jamaica have to date been given the AstraZeneca vaccine.
There have been no confirmed reports of deaths connected to the vaccine.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has consistently reiterated that the benefits of taking the AstraZeneca vaccine or any other approved jab, significantly outweigh any potential risk.
