Bhubaneswar, Jan 26 (PTI) A 27-year-old healthcare

worker died in Odisha on Tuesday, three days after taking the

COVID-19 vaccine, while the state health department said his

death is not related to vaccination.

The man who was inoculated on January 23 died in Veer

Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research

(VIMSAR) at Burla in Sambalpur district, an official statement

said.

"One 27-year-old male from Nuapada district died in

VIMSAR, Burla this morning with provisional diagnosis of

Bleeding Disorder with Severe Anaemia and Intracerebral

Haemorrhage. He had received Covid vaccination on 23.01.2021.

"However, as per medical enquiry, the cause of death

is not related to Covid vaccination," the statement released

by the Health and Family Welfare department said.

Two minor cases of AEFI (adverse effect following

immunisation) have also been reported during the day.

"A 24-year-old female from Nuapada district, who was

vaccinated on January 23, fell ill after taking vaccine while

one 23-year-old male from Jharsuguda district also become sick

after being vaccinated on January 18. Both are well now," the

statement said.

All districts were intimated to submit their plan of

action for the next phase of vaccination to be held from

January 28 to February 10, it said.

30 districts of the state, pushing the tally to 3,34,529, a

health department official said.
