Today, in our continuing series of accounts by the vaccine injured, we hear for the first time about the shocking reality of a vaccine death. Alex’s story is about her mother who died soon after being given the AstraZeneca vaccine, and the experience of the inquest afterwards.
THIS story is about my mother and my brother. My mum Anthea was 71 when she died within four days of receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine in January 2021. My brother James died in January 2022, in ICU, from sepsis induced by Covid 19.
Mum dedicated her entire life to the nursing profession, going into the RAF straight out of school to become a Princess Mary nurse. She loved to travel in her youth and her nursing career meant she had the opportunity to work in Africa, Germany and Australia.
Also her young student nurse days took her to different London A&E departments and night shifts at St Thomas’, working on the Nightingale ward. Ironically the Covid wall that runs along the Thames, beneath St. Thomas’s, now has mum’s and James’s names on it.
Mum went on to become an RGN and excelled as a Marie Curie nurse; she was passionate about palliative care and being there for the patient as well as the families.
She retired due to the development of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. She loved this life and her family. She did not deserve to die like this. No one does.
I took mum to the vaccine appointment. The worst thing I’ve ever done. Neither of us wanted it. She knew something was wrong. Not just her nursing knowledge told her but her instincts did too.
She was in and out within no time. A comment made by the administrator of the vaccine was ‘Thank you for wearing a baggy jumper.’
Four days later I found her dead on the floor. I called 999 and the paramedic who turned up wouldn’t come near her. I screamed at him to help, but all he said was ‘it’s probably Covid.’ How wrong he was.
A post-mortem was conducted and after several months we were told by the coroner that there would be an inquest, then we were told there wouldn’t be.
My brother and I decided we would not allow our mother’s death to be shoved under the carpet, so we instructed Peter Todd, a fantastic medical solicitor, to look into mum’s case. He advised that we request a judicial review.
After several months the coroner finally agreed to hold the inquest. A pre-inquest was held in March 2022 and the official inquest was scheduled for June 28.
Our solicitor asked for both the MHRA and AstraZeneca to send a representative or at least make a statement, but nothing was heard from either of them. The pathologist astonished me at the inquest. He spoke honestly about his findings, for which I am forever grateful. His exact words will haunt me for the rest of my life: ‘Mrs Kelly would be here today had she not been given the vaccine’ He was asked by the coroner to clarify his findings and he stated that it was ‘fatal for her.’
Our mum was our world. My brother and I were so blessed to have had this amazing woman as our mother. Her love knew no end.
I speak for my brother too now when I say this feels like murder to us. If by speaking out, one person questions this status quo, then I’ve done something to help in this atrocious situation.
My wonderful surviving brother as well as family and friends got me through last year but I stillcan’t wait for the day that I get finally to ‘go home’ myself, to be with the mother and the brother I lost.
