A 46-year-old woman in Bangkok, Thailand, died on June 8, 2021, after receiving a jab of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca just hours earlier.

The woman received her first dose of the vaccine at an inoculation station at Thai Business Administration Technological College in Bang Khen district, one of 50 districts in Bangkok, Thailand, at 11:45 pm on June 8, 2021.

After returning home, she had a fever and headache and felt cold. She took 3 rounds of painkillers. At 10:30 pm she choked, had a seizure, and passed out. Relatives called for an ambulance, and she was later pronounced dead.

The National Health Security Office (NHSO) Secretary General, Dr. Jadej Thammatach-aree, said he sent his staff to offer initial assistance right away without having to wait for a conclusion on whether the vaccine caused the death. Initial assistance was aimed at helping affected people, he said.
