You mentioned that no doctors have died of COVID-19 after receiving the vaccine. Can you tell me more about Dr. J Barton Williams' case? He was an orthopedic surgeon from Memphis who died of MIS despite being vaccinated. The preliminary newspaper articles that came out in February talked briefly about how he had the virus and then died, but I cannot find any follow-up information from the CDC which talks about the timing of his infection. For example, did he have active disease when he was vaccinated?

There were no deaths in the studies cohort...no necessarily ALL physicians in the county. The Cohort was about 500,000 healthcare workers is my understanding, there are a few million health care workers in total in the US...
