There is no evidence that an Australian boy called Lachlan Leary was killed by a COVID-19 vaccine, contrary to claims on social media.
In the original post, Leary explained how his son Lachlan became unwell with a fever after receiving the shot.
When he began experiencing breathing difficulties, the boy was taken to Sydney’s Westmead Hospital in New South Wales, Leary wrote - but was later sent home.
“Friday morning at 4am, we heard him yell out, he was on his bedroom floor, he then collapsed, he was not breathing,” the now-removed Facebook post read.
Leary claimed that Lachlan died of a “massive heart attack” on his way to hospital, using it as warning against children being given the vaccine.
