A Swiss resident who was among the first in the country to be vaccinated with an injection of the COVID-19 vaccine for the coronavirus Covid-19 later died, authorities in the canton of Lucerne said on Wednesday, without specifying whether the death was linked to the inoculation.

“We are aware of the matter,” said a spokesperson, adding that the matter had been handed over to Swissmedic, the Swiss drug control body.
