CNBC – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will investigate the death of a Nebraska man after local health officials listed the Covid-19 vaccine as one of several causes of death.
The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services announced the launch of the investigation in a press release late Thursday.
The man, a long-term care facility resident in his late forties with several co-exisiting diseases and conditions, died on Jan. 17.
His death occurred between one and two weeks after receiving his first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to the statement.
The CDC and FDA received 1,170 reports of fatalities among individuals in the U.S. who received a Covid vaccine — 0.003% of vaccinated people — between Dec. 14, and Feb. 7.
