Yep - they run these stories, and the speculation flies around the world before scientists and regulatory authorities can actually analyze these cases. All it is going to do right now is fuel anti-vaccine sentiment.We've got about 14M doses in and just a really limited amount of anaphylaxis. I'm skeptical that the vaccine actually caused those deaths until proved otherwise. I'd want to see a clear trend that there is a death rate above the expected for that group who has been vaccinated compared to peers. The news is running with a lot pointing out X person died after getting the vaccine but failing to mention the cause of death is VERY unlikely to be related.
