BBC presenter Lisa Shaw Dies aged 44 after receiving AstraZeneca vaccine, family says


An-award winning BBC journalist and radio presenter has died aged 44 after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, her family says.

Lisa Shaw’s family told the BBC she was treated for blood clots days after her first jab. She passed away on May 21.

An interim fact of death certificate confirms an investigation into Shaw’s death will be held and lists a “complication of AstraZeneca COVID-19 virus vaccination” as a consideration for her passing.

In a statement provided by the BBC, her family said she was treated for blood clots and “bleeding in her head”.

“Tragically she passed away, 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. We will love and miss her always,” the statement read.

The document does not determine a cause of death and will not be issued until the investigation has been completed.

Shaw was not known to have any underlying health conditions before receiving the vaccine.
