The health worker’s family said that he had been unwell before vaccination, but felt worse afterwards

A health worker in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad district died on Sunday evening, a day after being administered a coronavirus vaccine.

Mahipal Singh, 46, had complained of breathlessness and tightness in the chest, NDTV reported.

He worked as a ward boy at the district hospital. Moradabad Chief Medical Officer MC Garg said that his death was not related to the inoculation. 

“It does not seem to be a reaction to vaccination,” Garg said. “He [Singh] did night duty on Saturday too and there were no problems.”

According to The Times of India, Mahipal had received a shot of Serum Institute’s Covishield vaccine. His autopsy examination report showed that the immediate cause of his death was “cardiogenic shock/septicemic shock due to cardio-pulmonary disease,” NDTV reported.

The health worker’s family also said that he had been unwell before vaccination, but felt worse afterwards. 

“My father left the vaccination centre around 1:30pm, I brought him home,” Singh’s son Vishal told NDTV. 

“He was feeling breathless and he was coughing. He had a bit of pneumonia, the usual cough and cold, but he started feeling worse after returning home,” he added.
