Background: Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease with high morbidity and mortality rates. Indonesia had reported a 2.8% of mortality rate up to June 2021.
Case Presentation: A strategy to control the virus spreading is by vaccination. The Indonesian Food and Drug Monitoring Agency had approved the use of CoronaVac, an inactivated virus vaccine developed by Sinovac. Most Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI) for Corona- Vac are mild, and the most common symptoms are injection-site pain, headache, and fatigue. Neurovascular adverse events, including thrombosis or ischaemic stroke after receiving CoronaVac have not previously been reported.
Conclusion: Correspondingly, we reported three patients with an Acute Ischaemic Stroke (AIS) after the administration of CoronaVac in our hospital.
