A California resident who was vaccinated against COVID-19 died just hours later — and authorities are trying to find out why.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office announced the death and the investigation Saturday in a Facebook post, but gave few details.
The county, which is in the greater Sacramento area, was “recently notified” of the person’s death, the police said.
The person had tested positive for coronavirus in December and had been vaccinated just hours before their Jan. 21 death.
There was no indication which vaccine the person had been given.
