On April 25, Facebook user Shore Shanidze published a post claiming that Temur Chachanidze passed away after getting a Pfizer vaccine. Shanidze writes that Chachanidze was a brother of a doctor and people close to him were threatened.


Information spread by Shore Shanidze is not true. To fact-check the information, “Myth Detector” contacted the Ministry of Health, where they did not confirm the case of death caused by the Pfizer vaccine.

To fact-check information spread by Shore Shanidze about the Pfizer vaccine causing Temur Chachanadze’s death, “Myth Detector” contacted the Ministry of Health of Georgia, where they denied such information.

The ministry states that as of April 27, there have been no death cases after getting a Pfizer vaccine. Pfizer vaccinations launched on March 30 in Georgia.

It should be noted that Shanidze does not specify the cause of death in the post. Moreover, there is no mention of dates of vaccination and death.
