South Korea has reported its first death from blood clots in a person who'd gotten the AstraZeneca vaccine.
The health authorities said Wednesday that the person who died earlier the same day was a man in his thirties who'd been the second person confirmed to have the rare blood clot side effect.
He was inoculated on May 27 and reported severe headaches and nausea nine days later.
The causal link between the vaccine and the blood clotting symptoms has not been established.
But the health authorities say they're going to conduct an expert review of the case.
