SAFED, ISRAEL — We reported four deaths and several cases of Bell’s palsy in Israel in January. A week later, an Israeli human rights group accused the government and Pfizer of running unauthorized human vaccine trials. It’s been very quiet on the Pfizer and experimental shot front in Israel ever since, likely due to government censorship. But now Israel has a dubious distinction on this blog: the youngest victim of vaccine lethal injection we’ve covered to date.

Ms. Shirel Hilel (spelled Shirel Halal on Facebook) received her second dose of the experimental Pfizer mRNA shot on or around March 18, according to Channel 13 (Reshet) via the Times of Israel. She started having muscle pains and overall discomfort. The situation got worse when she started having trouble breathing and experienced chest pains. Ms. Hilel, 22, was taken to Ziv Medical Center in Safed as the situation deteriorated further.

Doctors diagnosed her with myocarditis, inflammation of heart muscles. She was transferred to the hospital’s cardiac unit for further treatment. But family members told the news station that hospital personnel were negligent in her care. Nofar Hilel-Vizman, Shirel’s sister, said the heart monitoring machines were making noise and lighting up. But nobody came to her sister’s aid. Shirel died on or around March 31.
