COVID Vaccination Doesn’t Increase Risk of Sudden Deaths Among Young Adults in India: Study

A study conducted by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has found that COVID-19 vaccination does not raise the risk of sudden deaths among young adults in India. The research, titled “Factors associated with sudden deaths among adults aged 18-45 years in India,” is currently undergoing peer review and is yet to be published.

The study’s findings indicate that factors such as previous hospitalization for COVID-19, binge drinking, and intense physical activity shortly before death are more likely to increase the risk of sudden deaths in this age group. Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, referencing the ICMR study, advised individuals who had experienced severe COVID-19 not to exert themselves excessively for a year or two to reduce the risk of heart attacks and cardiac arrests.

The study was initiated due to concerns about anecdotal reports of sudden deaths among healthy young adults in India, potentially related to COVID-19 or vaccination. It analyzed cases of seemingly healthy individuals aged 18-45 who died suddenly from unexplained causes between October 1, 2021, and March 31, 2023.

The research collected information on their medical history, behaviors, COVID-19 hospitalization, and vaccine doses administered, concluding that COVID-19 vaccination actually reduces the risk of sudden deaths among young adults in India. This study offers valuable insights into the factors contributing to such occurrences in this demographic.
