A 54-year-old woman from Quebec is believed to be the first Canadian to died of a blood clot after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.
”We just had our first patient who has died of a thrombosis, cerebral thrombosis, following vaccination from AstraZeneca,” said Quebec Public Health Director Dr. Horacio Arruda.
”This is an event that is rare.  We knew that it might happen.  We have a risk of default one in every 100,000 doses today.”
Arruda adds it was a risk the province knew it was taking but that benefits outweigh the risks.
Premier Francois Legualt says he’s sad to learn of the death but that unfortunately these cases happen.
”I think people will still continue getting vaccinated,” adds Legault.
”It’s very unfortunate and we’re sad about it, but unfortunately, that’s the price of vaccination.”
Quebec currently offers the vaccine to residents between 45 and 79 and there are no plans to change that strategy.
Currently, the province is investigating four cases of serious complications out of some 400,000 who got the shot.
