Health officials are now trying to get more information as they investigate the death.
“As part of this process, the TGA is seeking further clinical information including clinical test results from the NSW health department.
“It has not yet been established whether there is any link between the Covid-19 vaccine and the tragic death,” the federal health department said.
Infectious disease expert Paul Griffin has told Sunrise that it’s not likely the vaccine caused her death at this stage.
