Is there need to panic over the death of the first nurse to receive Covid-19 jab in SA?

The late Iris Adams

Some days ago, South Africa lost the first nurse to receive the Covid-19 vaccination in the country. Iris Adams reportedly died from Covid-19 related complications. May her lovely soul rest in peace.

It is sad to note that even though she had been vaccinated against the pandemic, she succumbed to the deadly virus. Those who are against vaccination against Covid-19 may take this as an opportunity to bring negative points against those who have taken the Vaccine as the very first nurse to be vaccinated against the pandemic lost her life to the same disease.

Is there a need to panic following the death of nurse Iris Adams? Does it mean that the vaccines are not efficient enough?

Even though the Centre for Communicable Diseases claims that getting vaccinated prevents severe Covid-19 illness, hospitalization, and even death, it can't be denied that it was not the case for Iris Adams.

It can't be denied that the vaccination against Covid-19 failed to prevent the worst from taking place. Some may be wondering if there is reason enough not to trust the vaccination against Covid-19.

The answer to this is that there is no need to panic or doubt the efficacy of the Covid-19 pandemic. What should be noted from what happened to nurse Iris is that the Covid-19 vaccine, just like any other vaccine is not 100 percent efficient.If unlucky, just like the nurse Iris who worked as a frontline worker where the possibility of Covid-19 infection was inevitable, there can be a vaccine breakthrough.

Have you ever wondered why people are encouraged to continue wearing masks even after getting vaccinated? It is because of the possibility of vaccination breakthrough. It is a pity that nurse Iris experienced a vaccination breakthrough despite being the first to be vaccinated. May her soul rest in peace and may you continue protecting yourself from the pandemic.
