Argentina’s poster boy for childhood vaccination tragically died after falling ill and reporting a plethora of symptoms.

“The autopsy revealed that the boy died of pneumonia, although he had received different diagnoses, including gastroenterocolitis and laryngitis,” reports Argentina Detail Zero.

Santino Godoy Blanco, 4, died earlier this month. He was one of the country’s poster boys for vaccine campaigns for measles, mumps, rubella and polio.

The boy’s mother, Agustina Blanco, has filed a complaint of abandonment against the hospital. 

She told a reporter that her son’s symptoms started on November 2 with a fever, which the doctors said was laryngitis. They also said symptoms should be gone within 5 to 7 days. 

However, her son was vomiting the next day, so she took him back to the hospital and told them he was also having problems urinating. She asked the hospital to take a blood sample, but they refused. Doctors did a urinalysis, which came back with no issues.

Ms. Blanco said doctors changed their diagnosis from laryngitis to gastroenterocolitis. Later, the doctors said her son had bronchospasm. 

Blanco’s condition continued to worsen, and he passed away within days.

Despite the autopsy, doctors did not tell Ms. Blanco that her son had pneumonia.

It’s unclear if young Blanco was vaccinated against COVID and, if so, which vaccine he received. Last year, Business Standard reported that Argentina would begin giving kids three years old and up the Sinopharm COVID vaccine.

“I’m not going to stop until the doctors who treated my son are removed,” his mother said, as reported by The Western Journal.
