NEBRASKA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES OFFICIALS HAVE IDENTIFIED A DEATH FROM COVID-19 THAT OCCURRED AFTER A PATIENT WAS FULLY VACCINATED.

THE WOMAN WAS IN HER 80S WITH UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND DEVELOPED COVID-19 AND WAS HOSPITALIZED MORE THAN 14 DAYS AFTER COMPLETING A VACCINATION SERIES WITH THE PFIZER VACCINE.

SHE WAS A RESIDENT OF THE TWO RIVERS HEALTH DISTRICT IN THE KEARNEY AREA.
