"Yesterday, a death occurred immediately after the vaccination; in fact, during the vaccination," Gytis Andriulionis, the agency's director, told a news conference. "The fatality, a 77-year-old person, had underlying cardiovascular issues."

"The death is not related to the vaccine, which is very important," he added.
