A 67-year-old man reportedly died one hour after taking the COVID-19 vaccine in Badala village of Hansi in Hisar district.

Family members alleged that he died due to side-effects of the vaccination.

However, the district health authority said the actual cause of death would be ascertained after the post-mortem examination.

The deceased’s cousin Ramesh Pandit and nephew Vikas Sharma said that the vaccination team reached the village on Monday and said that the person who does not get vaccinated, his pension will be discontinued.

Because of this, Ramphal Sharma got vaccinated, he said.

“For a while he stayed in the observation of the health department team and then on his way home on foot, his health deteriorated and he fell unconscious. After this, the health department team reached the spot and they gave him first aid and then brought him to Hansi general hospital where doctors declared him dead,” they said.

Civil Surgeon Dr Ratna Bharti said the autopsy of the body would be done only after that it would be clear what caused his death.

She said that people were getting vaccinated in the village even without persuasion by the team and no department employees spread rumours about the pension being discontinued.

For the time being, an inquiry will also be conducted on this, Dr Bharti said.
