A BBC radio presenter suffered headaches before passing away from blood clots believed to be related to AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine.
BBC Newcastle radio host Lisa Shaw, 44, tragically died last Friday after having “severe” headaches for about a week after the jab.
According to her family, Shaw was hospitalized for “bleeding in the head” shortly after receiving the vaccine.
“Lisa developed severe headaches a week after receiving her AstraZeneca vaccine and fell seriously ill a few days later,” the family said in a statement.
“She was treated by the Royal Victoria Infirmary’s intensive care team for blood clots and bleeding in her head.”
“Tragically, she passed away, surrounded by her family, on Friday afternoon.”
The UK’s Evening Standard reports people under 40 are being offered alternatives to the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 shots as more instances of fatal blood clots continue to come to light.
News of Shaw’s death comes as another UK resident, British model Stephanie Dubois, also died from a blood clot last week days after receiving AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine.
