A CORONER will investigate whether the Covid vaccine had a part to play in the death of BBC radio presenter Lisa Shaw.

The BBC Newcastle host developed “severe” headaches a week after having the jab and fell seriously ill a few days later, relatives said in a statement.

She died at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, on Friday afternoon having been treated in intensive care for blood clots and bleeding.

According to a BBC report, Newcastle coroner Karen Dilks has issued an interim fact-of-death certificate.

The BBC said the document does not determine a cause of death.

The certificate confirms an investigation into the her death will be held and lists "complication of AstraZeneca Covid-19 virus vaccination" as a consideration.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) had said the benefits of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine continue to outweigh risks for most people. It has not proven the vaccine causes the clots but has said the link is getting firmer.
