Australian Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt has been admitted to a hospital just 2 days after receiving the AstraZeneca experimental COVID vaccine.
ABC Australia mentioned twice in their coverage that Mr. Hunt’s condition is “not believed” to be related to the vaccine (bold emphases are mine).
Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt has been admitted to hospital with a suspected infection.
Mr Hunt received the AstraZeneca vaccine on the weekend but his office said his condition was not believed to be related to the vaccination.
A statement from the minister’s office says he will be kept overnight for observation and is being given antibiotics and fluid.
“The minister is expected to make a full recovery,” it reads.
“His condition is not considered to be related to the vaccine.”

Today March 10 2021 News.com.au posted this (bold emphases are mine):
Health Minister Greg Hunt has ended speculation his hospitalisation was linked to a COVID-19 vaccine, revealing he has been diagnosed with a bacterial infection.
Mr Hunt received the AstraZeneca jab on Sunday alongside former prime minister Julia Gillard in a bid to counter vaccine hesitancy.
He was admitted to hospital on Tuesday evening suffering from a suspected infection and moved swiftly to confirm those reports on Wednesday.
“Overnight, testing confirmed Minister Hunt’s diagnosis to be cellulitis, a bacterial infection in his leg,” a statement from his office read.
“The minister is improving and will be discharged in the coming days and expects to be back at work next week.”
Prime Minister Scott Morrison will act as health minister until Mr Hunt returns to work.
Mr Morrison was part of the first group of Australians to receive the Pfizer vaccine over a fortnight ago, while Mr Hunt waited to receive the AstraZeneca jab publicly.
But his admission to hospital sparked concern the public relations campaign could be undermined, but Mr Morrison told reporters on Wednesday he was “certain” it was not linked to the vaccine.
“That’s the medical advice I have been provided,” he said.
“He will be fine by next week, he will be back up on his feet. Minister Hunt and I have worked hand-in-glove over this last year.”News.com.au
Do you believe them? It all could be spin to deflect attention away from an adverse reaction to the AstraZeneca COVID jab. Others have reported skin rashes and inflammation. The report said he contracted cellucitus.
According to Healthline cellulitis symptoms include:
- pain and tenderness in the affected area
- redness or inflammation of your skin
- a skin sore or rash that grows quickly
- tight, glossy, swollen skin
- a feeling of warmth in the affected area
- an abscess with pus
More serious cellulitis symptoms include:
Symptoms like these could mean that cellulitis is spreading:
This seems to be a lot like many symptoms others have reported.
Corporate news sources reported that Austria has suspended their roll-out of the experimental AstraZeneca COVID vaccines after a 49-year-old nurse has died “as a result of severe coagulation disorders,” and a 35-year-old woman developed a pulmonary embolism following the COVID injections. A pulmonary embolism is an acute lung disease caused by a dislodged blood clot.
That vaccine is the same vaccine Greg Hunt was injected with. Do we see a trend starting in Australia? Let’s wait and see before we go full zombie apocalypse!
