Lisa Shaw Wiki
Lisa Shaw Biography
Who was Lisa Shaw?
The BBC presenter died from the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, a coroner concluded today.
44-year-old radio host Lisa Shaw died just over three weeks after receiving her first dose of the vaccine at the city’s Royal Victoria Infirmary, coroner Karen Dilks learned.
An examination that lasted less than an hour found that she had been hospitalized after complaining of headaches and doctors found that her brain was bleeding.
Blood clots from AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine are extremely rare, but can kill up to a quarter of the few affected patients, according to a recent study.
The complication has prompted UK health authorities to advise anyone under 40 to buy Pfizer or Moderna instead.
In a statement released after the hearing, Shaw’s family said: “It is another difficult day at a time that is devastating for us.
“The death of our beloved Lisa left a terrible void in our family and in our lives.
She “She was truly the most wonderful woman, mother, daughter, sister and friend.
“We have said everything we wanted to say in public at this time and ask that we be left alone to cry and rebuild our lives in private. Thanks.”
Shaw, who was not known to have any underlying health problems, developed a “severe” headache a week after receiving the vaccine and became seriously ill a few days later, her family members said.
Her relatives have previously said: “The intensive care team at RVI [Royal Victoria Infirmary] treated her for blood clots and bleeding in the head.
She “she tragically died surrounded by her family on Friday afternoon. We are devastated and there is a Lisa-shaped hole in our life that can never be filled. We will love her and we will always miss her.
“It was a great comfort to see how much all the people whose lives she touched loved her, and right now we are asking for privacy so that we can suffer as a family.”
The researchers insist that the link between blood clots and AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine is rare, as the side effect only affects one in 50,000 people under the age of 50 who receive the UK-made vaccine. .
Of these, 23% died of vaccine-induced thrombocytopenia and immune thrombosis (VITT), which is the name of the side effect.
Experts said it was more deadly than other similar bleeding disorders.
Thrombocytopenia is a condition in which the patient has a small number of cells that help the blood to clot, called platelets. Thrombosis occurs when blood clots block veins or arteries and is one of the leading causes of strokes and heart attacks.
No clots have been seen for over a month, scientists from the NHS Foundation Trust at Oxford University hospitals also revealed. But this is mainly due to the fact that no one receives the first dose of the vaccine anymore.
The risk of developing VITT from the second injection, given eight to 12 weeks after the first, is significantly lower.
For this reason, the researchers who examined the link argued that a third dose would likely lead to an even lower risk of blood clots.
In a previous statement, an MHRA spokesperson said: “We are saddened to learn of the passing of Lisa Shaw and our hearts go out to her family.
As with any suspected serious adverse reaction, fatal consequence reports are fully evaluated by the MHRA, including an evaluation of post-mortem details, if available.
“Our detailed and rigorous review of reports of blood clots occurring in addition to thrombocytopenia is ongoing.”
Shaw previously worked in commercial radio and won a 2012 Sony Gold Award for the Breakfast Show, which she co-hosted with co-host Gary Philipson on Real Radio.
Rik Martin, acting editor of BBC Radio Newcastle, said at the time of her death: “Everyone at the station is devastated and thinks of Lisa’s lovely family.
She “She was a trusted colleague, a brilliant presenter, a wonderful friend, a loving wife and mother.
“She loved being on the radio and our audiences loved her.
“We lost that special person who meant a lot to a lot of people.”
Chris Burns, director of local BBC radio, added: “Lisa was a talented presenter who had accomplished a lot and could have cho much more. ”
British regulators found 411 cases of thrombocytopenia and immune thrombosis caused by v.
