A model born in the UK experienced a blood clot and died after getting the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in Paphos, Cyprus, a health official said on Monday.
According to CyprusMail, Stephanie Dubois, 39, underwent a serious “thrombotic episode” after getting the shot, which has been suspended or restricted in over 20 countries due to possible side effects.
Health officials at the main state hospital in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, stated that Dubois didn’t have any underlying health conditions.
The Greek media reported that she had a brain hemorrhage and went into a coma, and finally drew her last breath on Saturday.
She had her first shot on May 6 and was hospitalized eight days later.
“So I had the vaccination today! I hate needles, today was no exception . . . And now I feel horrendous . . . pizza and bed for me,” Dubois posted on May 6.
Her condition then worsened with involuntary convulsions and difficulty breathing normally.
“Woke up feeling fine and then within an hour I had fully body shakes, all my joints seized and I was struggling to breathe and was cold to the bone with a persistent headache and dizziness,” Dubois wrote on May 14. “I was convinced I’d come down with Covid!”
