COVID-19 vaccine is the preventive tool against COVID-19. The safety of the new vaccine is the present issue for research. For any vaccination, postvaccination death requires a good investigation. An interesting emerging problem on postvaccination death due to ruptured aneurysms is an interesting observation. The primary investigation by local public health administrators usually reveals no association (for example, see https://healthserv.net/en9417). Theoretically, COVID-19 might cause aberration in homoeostatic system. The clinical association with an aneurysm is also reported. The multisystem inflammatory syndrome, aneurysm, might induce aneurysm. The pathogenesis of COVID-19-induced aneurysm is via the stimulator of interferon genes (STING) pathway, which is an immune-related mechanism. Regarding COVID-19 vaccination, the stimulation on the immune system might occur. There is a possible chance that there might be an immunopathological process inducing aneurysm or superimpose the existed aneurysm. Therefore, a possible interrelation between COVID-19 vaccination and postvaccination death due to ruptured aneurysm requires in-depth research.
At present, for playing safe, it is recommended that COVID-19 vaccination should be provided to only healthy people without any personal illness or risk history. The special high precaution should be noted for any case with underlying thrombohemostatic, immunological, or vascular disease. A good prevaccination screening and a highly selective recruitment process for the new vaccine recipients should be the best preventive measure.
