Several individuals in Nova Scotia over the age of 50 have died soon after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, but the government says it doesn’t track if vaccines actually caused those deaths.
The Nova Scotia government has released information on deaths registered shortly after individuals received either a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, but claims the information system doesn’t track if the vaccines contributed to those deaths.
In October, a freedom of information request to the government asked for information on the following two groups, broken down by age brackets and within the time frame of December 19, 2020 to October 3, 2021:
- The number of individuals in Nova Scotia who died within 14 days (within 14 days of the first or second dose, which difference was lower) of a COVID-19 vaccine
- and the number of individuals in Nova Scotia who died as a result of a COVID-19 vaccine
