A mother of three in the UK died after developing blood clots as a result of receiving Astrazeneca’s experimental mRNA jab, her family reports.
(Adan Salazar) According to the family of Aylestone, Leicester, resident Lucy Taberer, 47, the otherwise healthy playgroup leader began experiencing mild side effects shortly after getting a shot on March 19.
Soon, however, the conditioned worsened and Lucy had to be taken to hospital where she died.
“A post-mortem found the mother had suffered from cerebral venous sinus thrombosis – a rare and deadly type of brain clot,” reports the Daily Mail.
The fatal episode occurred merely three weeks after vaccination.
Fiancé Mark Tomlin described how Lucy had been supportive of the vaccine, but he’s now cautioning others to be wary of risks.
“I don’t want people to be put off having a vaccine but I do want people to know that there are risks,” Tomlin stated, according to the Mail.
“We’re not anti-vax. Lucy certainly wasn’t – she was so excited about getting it.”
Tomlin described how Lucy initially shrugged off symptoms of a serious adverse reaction.
“She knew there might be some side effects but she wasn’t worried. We thought they would just clear up as most people’s do.”
“That reassured her and she didn’t think it was anything to do with the vaccine but things just started to get worse and the panic began.”
Lucy’s condition quickly began to deteriorate as her face started swelling and developing redness.
“She developed a bruise about the size of a tennis ball on her. Normally she had all the energy in the world but she became tired and lethargic,” Tomlin recalled.
“Then she got a really bad rash on her face and side. Her gums started to change colour and we got really worried.”
Lucy initially received care at Leicester Royal infirmary beginning on April 1, about 13 days after being vaccinated, where treatment with blood thinners proved unsuccessful.
By April 10 she was transferred to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre’s (QMC) ICU where, after an emergency surgery failed, doctors recommended taking her off life support.
The distraught fiancé says “consultants” at QMC claimed the issue was vaccine-related.
Tomlin remarked on the irony of the situation given Lucy was a stickler about following Covid lockdown measures.
“She’s stuck like glue to all the lockdown rules and saw the vaccine as a step to getting out again and seeing her and hugging her mates.
“She couldn’t wait to get it but nobody thought this would happen.”
Tomlin, who’s received his first dose of Pfizer’s mRNA jab, says the episode has soured his outlook on the vaccine and presumes he probably won’t be getting his second dose.
