Trio received the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine on May 5 at Jakarta’s Gelora Bung Karno sports complex. He died a day later after he complained of vaccine side effects such as headaches and fevers of up to 39 degrees Celsius.

Aside from Trio and Malanua, a 60 year-old motorcycle taxi driver in Jakarta and a 45-year old man in Ambon, the provincial capital of Maluku province, died after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.

KIPI head Hindra Irawan maintained that the vaccines did not cause the deaths. He suspected that the motorcycle taxi driver died of pneumonia, while the fatality in Ambon was already terminally ill with Covid-19.

He added that an additional 27 people died after receiving the Sinovac vaccine. Hindra also attributed their deaths to pre-existing condition or comorbidity, not to the vaccine.

However, the fatalities caused the Food and Drug Agency to halt usage of the CTMAV547 AstraZeneca Covid-19 batch.
