A newscaster on the British public service company BBC's radio channel died on Friday in hospital. This is because she suffered from blood clots and bleeding after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine according to her family.
The woman, Lisa Shaw, worked for BBC Newcastle and had a severe headache a week after taking the vaccine. A few days later, she became seriously ill and died.
Only people under the age of 40 has been given an alternative to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine due to a link with rare blood clots and a risk of reduced platelet counts. Shaw, 44, therefore presumably had to take the AstraZeneca.
Dr June Raine, the chief executive of the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), said the benefits continued to outweigh the risks for the “vast majority of people”. The Swedish Medicines Agency (MHRA) also maintains that the benefits of AstraZeneca’s vaccine continue to outweigh the risks. They claim that it has not been proven that the vaccine causes the blood clots, but admit that the potential connection has become stronger.
Shaw’s death was announced on Sunday and since then, tributes from colleagues and listeners have poured in. Her family themselves say that Shaw’s death is linked to the vaccine, The Mirror reported.
The statement was published by the BBC, read: “Lisa developed a severe headache a week after receiving her AstraZeneca vaccine and became seriously ill a few days later. She was treated by the Royal Victoria Infirmary’s Intensive Care Team for blood clots and bleeding in the head. Tragically, she died, surrounded by her family, on Friday afternoon. We are devastated and there is a Lisa-shaped hole in our lives that can never be filled.”
