“I went to see her and she told me to go home and see our son because it was late,” the husband of Lisa Shaw shares her last words.
The BBC presenter has sustained a bleed on the brain which sadly led to her death in May. However, since she died a week after receiving the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine it remains unclear whether Lisa`s death was linked to her receiving the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
“She said ‘I’m tired’. I gave her a kiss. And I never spoke to her again,” Gareth Eve told BBC`s Victoria Derbyshire of his final moments with Lisa.
At the beginning of the year, Lisa`s family issued a statement saying that the BBC presenter had begun to have serious headaches after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine and become seriously ill after a few days.
Asked about the Covid jab, Gareth said that he’s not an “anti-vaxxer” but while “we don’t know this information, maybe the answer is to give people the alternative”.
“What the vaccine has done is unbelievable. The work these people have done to get the country back on its feet is outstanding,” he added.
In a statement, the Department of Health and Social Care says: “All vaccines being used in the UK have undergone robust clinical trials and have met the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) strict standards of safety effectiveness and quality.”
