As South Korea continues its COVID-19 vaccination program, the number of deaths from vaccine side effects continues to rise. The families of the dead held a ceremony on the 20th of November to demand answers and justice from the South Korean Government. The distraught relatives shaved their heads while holding up photos of their dead loved ones as they begged for answers from government officials.
Joo-Hwan Noh’s 20-year-old daughter had complained to her father in September that she developed chest pain after receiving the Moderna vaccine. Six days later, her pulse suddenly dropped, and she eventually died after being admitted to hospital.
Another person at the event was Lee Mi-Joo, who lost her 25-year-old daughter just four days after her second COVID-19 vaccine last month.
“I am here demonstrating today for my daughter. I hope to meet people here who I can become friends with to grieve the suffering of our loved ones.”
The grieving families yelled “acknowledge causality!” a reference to the government’s lack of admission that the vaccines are causing these sudden deaths.
The vigil came just a day after family members of COVID-19 vaccine victims confronted the head of South Koreas CDC Jeong Eun-Kyung, blocking her car and demanding answers from South Korea’s CDC.
