Japan grants 1st payment for death related to COVID vaccination

新型コロナワクチン 90代女性 接種後死亡で初の救済認定

Japan Today -- Jul 26
A Japanese health ministry panel has awarded for the first time a lump sum compensation payment to the family of an elderly woman who died after suffering an allergic response and sudden heart attack related to a COVID-19 vaccination.

The woman, who was 91 when she received the vaccination, had pre-existing conditions including transient ischemic attacks, according to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. It has not released details on when she was inoculated nor how many shots she received.

The panel on Monday determined that a causal relationship between subsequent health problems and the vaccine could not be denied in the case.

Under that designation, those whose deaths can be causally linked to a vaccine can receive a lump sum compensation payment of 44.2 million yen ($324,000), and a 212,000 yen contribution to funeral expenses.
