Five people have died after getting flu shots in South Korea.
The deaths include a 17-year-old boy and a man in his 70s who suffered from Parkinson’s disease. In response to the deaths, the authorities said there was no reason to believe the vaccines caused the fatalities. The deaths come amid an inoculation drive in the country to stop flu and Covid patients overloading hospitals.
The boy died two days after receiving the flu shot in Incheon, near the capital Seoul. The man in his 70s, who also had a heart problem, was the most recent case. He died in Daegu on Wednesday, a day after receiving the flu vaccine. Medical officials said the man had received vaccines since 2015 with no prior adverse reactions.
