Elderly Queensland woman dies hours after receiving Pfizer coronavirus shot

A woman living at an aged care home in Queensland has died less than three hours after receiving a long-awaited coronavirus shot.

An elderly woman has died in a Queensland aged care facility just hours after receiving her coronavirus vaccination.

The 82-year-old woman was a resident at the Yurana aged care facility in Springwood, west of Brisbane.

She received her shot of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccination around 10am this morning. Emergency services were called less than three hours later, at 1.30pm, to report the woman was unresponsive.

The Courier-Mail said the woman’s death may not be linked to the vaccine as she was suffering from other health issues, including lung disease.

A Blue Care employee, the parent company of the Yurana home, confirmed a woman had died after receiving the vaccine.

A Queensland Police spokesman confirmed to news.com.au a report was being prepared for the coroner to understand how the woman had died.

Her death is being treated as non-suspicious.

About 855,000 people across the country have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine as of April 5, despite the Prime Minister predicting that four million Aussies would be vaccinated by the end of March.

Scott Morrison today said the discrepancy was because millions of doses didn’t arrive in Australia.

“Three-point-one million of the contracted vaccines that we had been relying upon in early January when we’d set out a series of targets did not turn up in Australia,” he said.
