Coroner: ‘Fit and Healthy’ 27-Year-Old Man’s Death from Blood Clot ‘Direct Result’ of AstraZeneca Covid Jab

A UK man died as a “direct result” of blood clots suffered just weeks after an AstraZeneca Covid jab, a coroner told an inquest Tuesday.
Suffolk senior coroner Nigel Parsley detailed the sudden death of “fit and healthy” 27-year-old Jack Last, concluding it was attributed to the jab, which was suspended in several European countries in March 2021 due to concerns over blood clots.
“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,” Parsley told the government hearing held in Ipswich.
Last, a Stowmarket engineer, received an AstraZeneca jab on March 30 and went to the emergency room on April 9 due to a “throbbing headache,” which doctors dismissed as a migraine.
Dr. William Petchey, a West Suffolk Hospital consultant, told the inquest he initially dismissed cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) as Last reported the headaches would “spontaneously resolve,” which Petchey reasoned was “in keeping with migraine.”
However, Petchey described a delay in conducting a CT venogram scan to rule out the possibility of vaccine-induced immune thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (VITT).
When the scan was conducted, doctors were able to confirm Last did indeed suffer from CVST.
“Mr. Last was given anticoagulation to thin the clot, but he developed a bleed on the brain,” the BBC reported, adding he died upon being transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
