An inquest into the death of a British man in 2021 determined that a blood clot produced by the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination was to blame.
Jack Last, age 27 and from Stowmarket, was immunized on 30 March 2021. According to the BBC, he was hospitalized with headaches one week later. A scan performed on April 10 detected a blood clot known as a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Last died 10 days later.
According to the East Anglian Daily Times, on Monday, the Suffolk Coroner’s Court initiated an investigation into his death.
After hearing two days of testimony, Senior Coroner Nigel Parsley issued his decision on Wednesday.
“In Jack’s case, I will record that Jack Last died of a blood clot to the brain as a direct result of his body’s reaction to the AstraZeneca vaccine given to him on March 30, 2021,” he said.
According to ITV, Parsley stated that the injection triggered an overactive immunological reaction that led to blood clots in different locations of Last’s body.
During the investigation, Last was described as “fit and healthy.”
According to the BBC article, medics administered blood thinners to Last to treat the complications caused by the clot, but he later had bleeding in the brain.
The BBC reported that in the spring of 2021, the presence of unusual blood clots in immunized young adults prompted British medical regulators to advise against administering the AstraZeneca vaccine to this demographic.
According to ITV, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency published recommendations in May — weeks after Last’s death — that those under the age of 40 should, whenever feasible, receive a different kind of vaccination.
Dr. William Petchey stated during the investigation that he first ruled out a link between the immunization and the clot.
“It’s hard to explain now what this was like. This was not a condition any of us had trained for, or which we had experience with,” he said, according to Suffolk News.
