The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is leaving it to state health departments to investigate deaths reported following COVID vaccines, including the June 2021 death of 13-year-old Jacob Clynick who died of myocarditis three days after his second Pfizer shot.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is not investigating the death of a 13-year-old Michigan boy who died June 16, 2021, of myocarditis three days after his second dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine, emails obtained by Judicial Watch confirmed.

Judicial Watch on Wednesday announced it obtained 314 pages of records from the CDC, including communications from Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky showing a request for information about the death of Jacob Clynick.

The teen’s death was not acknowledged by CDC officials in presentations on myocarditis or vaccine safety during meetings held by the agency’s vaccine safety advisory panel, the Advisory Committee on Immunization and Practices (ACIP), which makes clinical recommendations for use of COVID vaccines in children.

According to the records, Walensky, on June 28, 2021, forwarded a Washington Times article, “CDC reportedly probing Michigan teen’s death after COVID-19 vaccination,” to her subordinates, asking, “Any details on this?”

The article said federal health officials were investigating the case of a Michigan teen who died three days after receiving his second dose of a COVID vaccine. The Saginaw (Michigan) County Health Department said the investigation into whether the death was related to the vaccine was at the “federal level,” referring to the CDC.

Dr. Henry Walke, director of CDC’s Division of Preparedness and Emerging Infections, forwarded Walensky’s request to another official, David Fitter, who responded:

“The case had been reported to VAERS [Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System]. CDC has spoken with ME [Medical Examiner], but we are following protocol for f/u [follow-up] re the case. Additionally, CDC remains in contact with MI to assist in the investigation.”
