Pictured: Diabetic woman, 48, who died of blood clotting condition five days after getting the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine – as regulators confirm her death WAS linked to jab
The death of a Weet-Bix factory worker from a blood clotting condition was linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine she got five days earlier, regulators confirmed.
Janine Norris, 48, from the New South Wales Central Coast died on April 14 after receiving the embattled coronavirus jab on April 9.
She developed blood clots the day after getting the vaccine and was placed on dialysis in an intensive care unit until her death.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration’s vaccine safety investigation found Ms Norris’ case of thrombosis is likely to be linked to the vaccine.
Authorities said the review of the woman’s case was complicated by her underlying health conditions – including diabetes among others.
Ms Norris was given the jab before health authorities declared the Pfizer vaccine was the preferred option for patients under 50.
It is the third report of an Australian case of blood clotting from the AstraZeneca vaccine. The other two cases were treated in hospital and are recovering.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration’s Vaccine Safety Investigation Group met late on Friday after Daily Mail Australia revealed on Thursday that the woman died after receiving the Covid jab.
More to come.
