article imageSouth Korean student dies after receiving A/H1N1 vaccine

By Andrew Moran     Nov 30, 2009 in Health
On Monday, a South Korean student died of cerebral hemorrhage after receiving the A/H1N1 vaccination but officials have stated the student's death is completely unrelated to the vaccine.
Digital Journal reported earlier this month that two Chinese people immediately died after taking the H1N1 vaccine, a Quebec man passed away moments after the vaccine and that others have been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
Now, according to Xinhua, a South Korean student has died four days after receiving the A/H1N1 vaccination.
The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Family Affairs revealed that the student, whose identity will not be released to the public, died of cerebral hemorrhage but was unrelated to the inoculation. The Ministry came to this conclusion after the health ministry, the Korea Food and Drug Administration and the National Institute of Scientific Investigation suggested there was no direct link.
The Malaysian Insider reports that after it was released that the student died after the vaccination, health authorities conducted tests of 516 children and only 70 have had minor side-effects and the symptoms vanish with a few days.
Computer tomography further showed that the child had a prior medical condition, which may have been caused by an aneurysm in the brain, reports People Daily.
