City Suspends Vaccines for Children After 10-Year-Old Girl Suffers Heart Attack Following Pfizer Jab
A city in Brazil put an immediate halt to vaccines for youngsters after a 10-year-old girl suffered a heart attack mere hours after her first Pfizer injection.
The incident happened last week in Lençóis Paulista, a State of São Paulo, also known as “The World’s Vaccine Capital” due to its extremely high vaccination rate among adults.
Reports claim 10-year-old Luisa Petenuci received a Pfizer jab on Tuesday, January 18th.
“She was then rushed to a private hospital where the 10-year-old had to be resuscitated.”
“After being stabilized, Luisa was then transferred to Unimed Hospital in Botucatu where she currently remains in intensive care.”
Following Luisa’s medical emergency, Lençóis Paulista city officials announced the child’s adverse reaction via social media and subsequently ordered a stop to their childhood vaccine program for 7 days, stating the “10-year-old suffered a heart attack 12 hours after receiving the pediatric dose of the Pfizer vaccine.”
