The 48-year-old woman, who was a diabetic, from New South Wales Central Coast, died days after she received the AstraZeneca vaccine.
The federal Department of Health however said that there was no direct link established yet between her receiving an AstraZeneca vaccine and her death.
The health department also said that the Therapeutic Goods Administration and NSW Health authorities were investigating the woman’s death
“As part of this process, the TGA is seeking further clinical information including clinical test results from the NSW Health Department,” said in a statement on Thursday.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison cautioned people in concluding the issue.
“There is a lot more to understand and learn about that issue and I would caution others in making conclusions about this at this point as well,” he told reporters.
“We’ve been very transparent, very transparent when it comes to information on these issues and people can expect us to do that,” he added.
Earlier, there were reports of a blood clot in the vaccine recipients allegedly linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine.
