An 18-year-old student died from a blood cot only two weeks after having her Covid vaccination.
Kasey Turner was admitted to hospital after she was experiencing ‘thunder clap’ headaches. An inquest heard the headaches were the result of thrombosis in her sinus cavity.
She was admitted to Barnsley Hospital’s A&E department on the morning of September 23, 2021 with the “worst headache” she had ever experienced. Because of her low platelet count in her blood, doctors initially ruled out a brain haemorrhage.
It was later discovered that the paramedic student was actually suffering from a cerebral venous thrombosis – a blood clot in the sinus cavity. It is believed the blood clot was brought on by the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine, and her inquest found doctors at Barnsley Hospital had “missed opportunities” to diagnose the fatal clot, reports Yorkshire Live.
Kasey received the vaccine two weeks prior to being admitted to hospital as part of the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust’s immunisation programme. She was on placement as a frontline worker and was offered her vaccine before it was rolled out to other 18-year-olds.
She suffered all of the “common” side effects of the vaccine but hoped these would last approximately 12 to 18 hours, the inquest heard. But two weeks later she was “screaming in pain” with the “worst headache” she had ever experienced.
Despite this, a CT scan was reported as “normal”. Three days after her admission, Kasey was administered a dose of platelets and her inquest heard that she began to rapidly deteriorate.
She suffered from fits and was “not responding to seizure control”, the inquest heard. She was then incubated and put on a ventilator where doctors performed another CT scan, now revealing the blood clot.
Doctors decided that brain surgery would not be in Kasey’s best interest and could result in “significant brain damage”. After Kasey’s condition did not improve the following day, sedative drugs were withdrawn so doctors could accurately assess her neurological state. She was found to be “brain stem dead” so mechanical ventilation was withdrawn and she died later that day.
Vaccine ‘key factor’ in death
