A mother of three suffered multiple blood clots and died in hospital just days after receiving the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine.
Childminder Tanya Smith, 43, had her first jab in March and died just over a week later after being rushed to hospital with severe stomach cramps.
An inquest is set to take place to determine the circumstances surrounding her death.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has also confirmed it will review Ms Smith’s case as part of an ongoing review into the occurrence of blood clots and any potential links to the vaccine.
Ms Smith’s partner Kenneth Edwards decided to speak out after hearing about the death of BBC journalist Lisa Shaw who died in Newcastle, having been treated in intensive care for blood clots and bleeding after receiving the vaccine.
Mr Edwards said Tanya had felt ‘pretty rough’ for a couple of days after the jab and then woke one morning in pain and called 111 for help.
He said her suffering did not ease even after a paramedic attended and gave her painkillers and she was taken to Derriford Hospital where it was later found she had suffered multiple blood clots.
Sadly, Ms Smith soon suffered a heart attack and a cardiac arrest and after a short period of stability, her condition got ‘progressively worse’ before she tragically died in hospital on April 3.
Mr Edwards believes she would not have passed away if she hadn’t had the Covid-19 AstraZeneca vaccine, but this can not be confirmed until a full investigation and inquest into her death has taken place.
He spoke out after reading about the death of BBC journalist Lisa Shaw who died after suffering blood clots following the AZ vaccine.
The European Medicines Agency says the benefits of the vaccine in combating the widespread threat of Covid-19 (which itself results in clotting problems and may be fatal) continue to outweigh the risk of side effects.
