Abstract

Bu çalışmada iki doz inaktif CoronaVac (Sinovac Life Sciences) aşısı olduktan sonra hastanede pnömoni nedeni ile hayatını kaybeden COVID-19 ters transkripsiyon polimeraz zincir reaksiyonu (RT-PCR) pozitif bir vaka sunulmuştur. İki doz Koronovac aşısı yapılan 67 yaşında kadın hasta, nefes darlığı ve öksürük şikayeti ile acil servise (AS) başvurdu. Toraks tomografisinde bilateral buzlu cam görüntüsü mevcuttu. Hastanın RT-PCR testi pozitif çıktı ve hastanenin COVID-19 servisine kaldırıldı. Üç gün serviste kalan hasta, klinik durumunun ağırlaşması üzerine yoğun bakıma alındı; ayrıca yoğun bakım ünitesinde 11 gün kaldıktan sonra öldü. İki doz aşıdan beş gün sonra, yaşlı hastalarda beklenen koruyucu etki görülmeyebilir. Aşılanan bireylerin kendilerini COVID-19’a karşı korumaya devam etmeleri uygun olacaktır.

Abstract

n this study, a COVID-19 reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) positive case who died in the hospital with pneumonia after receiving two doses of inactive CoronaVac (Sinovac Life Sciences) vaccine is presented. A 67-year-old female patient, who was vaccinated with two doses of the Coronovac vaccine, was admitted to the emergency room (ER) with dyspnea and cough. There was a bilateral ground glass image on thorax tomography. The patient’s RT-PCR test was positive, and he was admitted to the hospital’s V-19 ward. The patient, who stayed in the service for three days, was taken to the intensive care unit after his clinical condition deteriorated; moreover, she died after 11 days in the intensive care unit. The expected protective effect may not be seen in old patients five days after two doses of vaccine. It would be appropriate for the vaccinated individuals to continue to protect themselves against COVID-19.
