"When a serious adverse event, like death, is reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) after COVID-19 vaccination, CDC requests and reviews all medical records associated with the case, including death certificates, and autopsy reports," she added. "While some reported adverse events may be caused by vaccination, others are not and may have occurred coincidentally."

Dr. Russell Bush, the medical examiner for Saginaw County, said Friday his office and the Saginaw County Health Department are looking into the death of 13-year-old Jacob Clynick of Zilwaukee, who died in his sleep after receiving a shot of a vaccine. Bush said they could not disclose which vaccine Jacob received or when he received it.

Bush said it's going to be a "fairly long time" before that work is done and tests results come back.

Funeral services for Jacob, who was a student at Zilwaukee Elementary, were held June 26. 

According to his obituary on https://deislerfuneralhome.com, he loved gaming and loved Pokémon. Jacob was "known for his jokes and had a meme for every occasion. But, what he really loved most was his family," according to the obituary.

Federal officials have raised cautions about a rare side effect of some COVID-19 vaccines — chest pain and heart inflammation, mostly among teens and young adults.

The problem appears to be most common in young men after they receive their second of two doses, but it is nevertheless rare overall: There have been 323 confirmed reports of the inflammation in people younger than 30, and the vast majority recovered from their symptoms.

That risk “seems to me, and to many others, to be much lower than the risk of COVID,” said Dr. Brian Feingold, a University of Pittsburgh heart specialist.

“The facts are clear: this is an extremely rare side effect, and only an exceedingly small number of people will experience it after vaccination. Importantly, for the young people who do, most cases are mild, and individuals recover often on their own or with minimal treatment,” the statement said.

According to his aunt, Jacob was healthy and did not have any chronic illnesses. The woman also said that the teenager had complained of general post-vaccination symptoms for two days, fatigue and fever.

On 15 June, Jacob had a slight stomach ache, but not enough to raise serious concerns, aunts said. The boy fell asleep and never woke up.

CDC investigating after healthy Michigan 13-year-old boy dies 3 days after receiving second Pfizer vaccine

New York Daily News 04 July, 2021 - 08:39pm

While there is as yet no established connection, the boy, Jacob Clynick, had no underlying health conditions when he died in his sleep shortly after his second shot, his aunt told the Detroit Free Press.

“We are currently looking at toxicology, tissue reports, blood work,” Saginaw County medical examiner Dr. Russell Bush told The Detroit News. “There will be discussions with the CDC and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Obviously, everyone is concerned with this case. We’re doing everything we can as far as testing and looking at potential problems related to the young man’s death.”

Jacob received his second shot in mid-June and died three days later after complaining of common post-vaccine symptoms including fatigue and fever, his aunt, Tammy Burages, said of the boy looking forward to his freshman year of high school.

“He passed away in the middle of the night at home,” she told the Detroit Free Press.

An autopsy showed his heart was enlarged and that there was fluid around it, Burages told the newspaper, but health experts said it could take three to five months to determine an exact cause of death, and whether it was somehow related to the vaccine.

“CDC is aware of a 13-year-old boy in Michigan who died after receiving a COVID-19 vaccination,” CDC spokeswoman Martha Sharan told WSET-TV. “This case is currently under investigation and until the investigation is complete, it is premature to assign a specific cause of death.”

A “serious adverse event” such as a death after a COVID-19 vaccination sparks an investigation by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, but noted that the system “is not designed to determine if the vaccine caused the reported adverse event,” the Detroit Free Press reported.

“While some reported adverse events may be caused by vaccination, others are not and may have occurred coincidentally,” she said.
