Two days after receiving the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine, a Portuguese health care worker was reported dead .
Sonia Acevedo, 41, who worked in pediatrics at the Portuguese Institute of Oncology in Porto, suffered a sudden death at home 48 hours after getting the jab on New Year’s Day.
After being vaccinated, the mother-of-two is not said to have experienced any adverse side effects, Mail Online reported.
Ms. Acevedo’s father, Abilio Acevedo, told the Portuguese daily Correio da Manha that he received a call saying that her daughter was found dead about 11 a.m. last Friday morning after they ate together on New Year’s Eve, adding, “My daughter left home and I never saw her alive again.”
” She was all right. She had no health issues whatsoever. She had the Covid-19 vaccine but she didn’t have any effects. What happened, I don’t know. I just want the answers”
‘I want to know what contributed to the death of my daughter.’
Vania Figueredo, Ms. Acevedo’s daughter, said her mother had only complained about the ‘usual’ pain in the region where she was jabbed but was fine otherwise.
