The Covid-19 Vaccine Independent Safety Monitoring Board advised the Ministry of Health that the woman, who was in her 50s, had developed myocarditis, a severe side affect, after receiving the Pfizer jab. 

Myocarditis is a rare side effect of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.

"The CV-ISMB considered that the myocarditis was probably due to vaccination. The CV-ISMB noted that there were other medical issues occurring at the same time which may have influenced the outcome following vaccination," the board said. 

"This is the first case in New Zealand where a death in the days following vaccination has been linked to the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine."

The case has now been referred to the Coroner to determine the cause of death. 

Up to August 7, five deaths were still under investigation by the Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring over whether they were linked to the vaccine.
