Following the start of Kexing vaccine, Fubitai vaccine has recently arrived in Hong Kong, allowing the public to have multiple vaccine options.

However, a man with a long-term illness recently died after being vaccinated, which has aroused public concern about the safety of the vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine clinical event assessment expert committee held an emergency meeting on Wednesday (March 3) and agreed that the cause of death of the deceased was not directly related to vaccination.

The expert committee co-convened Kong Fanyi to point out that the deceased suffered from severe coronary heart disease during his lifetime, and three severe cardiovascular obstructions. The most likely cause of death is coronary heart disease leading to acute myocardial infarction and pulmonary edema, and eventually died of respiratory failure.

Although the cause of death has nothing to do with vaccination, the incident has also aroused concern. Some citizens planning to receive vaccination even missed or cancelled appointments. The authorities should review how to make the public more at ease.

At around 9 o'clock this morning (3rd), many citizens continued to receive Kexing vaccination at the Guanyong Gymnasium.

Background morbidity and mortality cannot be ignored

Among them, there are social concerns that after the death of the man, the HA did not confess the accident to the public as soon as possible. He was frank and open after media inquiries, and the report was postponed to the Department of Health until Tuesday (2nd).

The Hospital Authority stated that it did not deliberately conceal it. A representative of the hospital stated that the medical staff “did not pay attention” during the first aid and performed first aid from the direction of clinical judgment.

If the statement is true, the hospital can review how it can better understand whether the patient or the dead person has been vaccinated, and expedite the notification after learning.

As a matter of fact, it has been heard that after vaccination, a 50-year-old man in South Korea died of a heart attack the next day after being vaccinated with AstraZeneca. In Norway, in January, 23 people were vaccinated with the vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer and BioNTech. death.

This may be related to the side effects of the vaccine, or it may be due to background morbidity and background mortality, that is, people may also become ill and die if they are not vaccinated.

If the medical staff does not know whether the other party has been vaccinated with Kexing vaccine, it will affect the notification and follow-up investigation.

Therefore, the authorities can take advantage of this incident to increase the attention of medical staff to related matters and strengthen the notification mechanism when necessary.

Take one more step to fully understand

In addition, in the process of vaccination, medical staff and citizens must have a sufficient two-way understanding.

According to a research report by the Food and Health Bureau on Kexing Vaccine, “due to insufficient data on the effectiveness of groups 60 years of age or older, relevant institutions should consider their health status and exposure risks when using CoronaVc for the above groups” and list the risks. People with a history of diabetes, epilepsy, and bleeding disorders should use it with caution.

When the man involved went to the Guanyong Gymnasium for vaccinations, whether the staff understood his medical history and explained the risks related to the vaccine, the specific procedures can be reviewed.

On the other hand, citizens themselves have the responsibility to be aware of the vaccination risks of all age groups and chronic diseases.

Guo Baoxian, Medical Director of the Community Vaccination Center of Guanyong Gymnasium, mentioned that citizens have three checks before vaccination, including those who are not suitable for vaccination listed on the booking website, the center has an information center to introduce vaccine information, and the presence of medical staff Check the physical condition of citizens and so on.

Of course, some citizens have weak medical knowledge, and it is advisable for healthcare professionals to take a step further in implementation, such as asking more about the physical condition of the elderly.

In particular, citizens can go to private doctors’ clinics for free vaccination of Kexing vaccination from Tuesday (March 2). The authorities should provide them with more adequate guidelines, so that doctors can better understand citizens’ physical conditions and medical records, and make citizens more aware of vaccination. Precautions for vaccines.
