The probe and the postmortem conducted into the two deaths that were reported following COVISHIELD vaccination, have revealed that the cause for deaths was not attributed to the vaccine and it had no links to it, Deputy Director General of Health Services Dr. Hemantha Herath said.
He told media that the Epidemiology Unit had taken pertinent steps to carry out investigation into the said deaths, reported in the Gampaha District.
“It has been concluded that the deaths have occurred not due to any effect of the vaccine,” Dr. Herath said.
The two men from Gampaha died on Wednesday (03) two days after vaccination.
Dr. Herath also urged people not to create unnecessary congestion and queueing up at vaccination centres but to use their common sense. (Sheain Fernandopulle)
