A 75-year-old man was lucky enough to get a COVID-19 vaccine in Israel, only to die a few hours later from a heart attack that officials believe is unrelated to the shot.

The unidentified man got the Pfizer shot at 8:30 a.m. Monday, and within hours had lost consciousness and died at home in Beit She’an, The Jerusalem Post said.

Health Ministry director-general Chezy Levy has launched an investigation, but early findings suggest the vaccine was not connected to the death, the report stressed.

The dead man had a history of numerous pre-existing conditions, including cancer and heart problems, including earlier heart attacks, The Times of Israel said.

He also showed no signs of adverse reaction after being vaccinated, and was only allowed home following a period of observation where he said he felt fine, the reports said.

“We share in the grief of the family,” Levy said in a statement.
