Coroner: ‘Fit and healthy’ British doctor died from ‘unintended’ reaction to COVID vaccine

A 32-year-old, “fit and healthy” British psychologist who works for the U.K.’s National Health Service recently died of “unintended consequences of vaccination” after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine, according to a report released by a London coroner.

Released last Wednesday, the report says Dr. Stephen Wright “had a stroke and bleeding in the brain, as well as vaccine-induced thrombosis, or blood clots, and thrombocytopenia, a condition that occurs when the platelet level in the blood is abnormally low,” as reported by The New York Times.

Wright died exactly 10 days after taking his first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine in January of 2021.

“Dr. Wright was a fit and healthy man who had the AstraZeneca COVID vaccination on 16 January 2021, awoke with a headache on the 25th and later developed left arm numbness. He attended an emergency department just after midnight, where he was found to have high blood pressure and a sagittal sinus venous thrombosis,” coroner Andrew Harris said during a court hearing last week.

“He was transferred to King’s College Hospital at 6:39 am but, because of the extent of the bleed and very low platelets, was unfit for surgery, dying at 6:33 pm. My conclusion as to the cause of death is unintended complications of vaccination,” the coroner added.

All this is coming out now thanks to Wright’s family’s two-year legal battle to get the “natural causes” wording on Wright’s death certificate changed to AstraZeneca.

“It was made clear that Stephen was fit and healthy and that his death was by vaccination of AstraZeneca. For us, [the coroner’s ruling] allows us to be able to continue our litigation against AstraZeneca. This is the written proof,” Wright’s widow, Charlotte, told the BBC.

She added that when she first began speaking out about her husband’s death, not everybody had been willing to listen to her.

“Even with people in my life, there were questions and queries about whether I was actually telling the truth so, two years later, I can finally say it is the truth,” she said.

But the truth in itself isn’t quite enough for her.

“It provides relief but it doesn’t provide closure. I think we’re only going to get that when we have an answer from AstraZeneca and the government,” she said.

It does help, she continued, that their two children, both boys, are still alive and well.

“I find it very comforting that I have two boys that remind me of him every day. I’m just very thankful that I got to marry such a great man and raise our boys in his honor,” she said.

Meanwhile, Wright’s mother, Anne Wright, told the BBC that he’d been about to start a new job at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London the week after he died.

“He loved his job, he loved the children he worked with, he loved the young people, and he had a real empathy with them and they really seemed to get on with him,” she said.

Dovetailing back to the court case, Dr. Mark Howard, a consultant pathologist and medical examiner at King’s College hospital, said in court that scientists and so-called “medical experts” had been unaware of the vaccine’s deadly side effects at the time he’d been jabbed.

“Stephen was a very fit, young and healthy man in January 2021. It is a truly tragic and very rare complication of a well-meant vaccination. It’s not fully understood why this happens. It’s an idiosyncratic reaction. The circumstances arise in a very small number of people,” he said, according to The Guardian.

Meanwhile, an AstraZeneca spokesperson said, “We are very saddened by Stephen Wright’s death and extend our deepest sympathies to his family for their loss. Patient safety is our highest priority and regulatory authorities have clear and stringent standards to ensure the safe use of all medicines, including vaccines.”

“From the body of evidence in clinical trials and real-world data, Vaxzevria has continuously been shown to have an acceptable safety profile and regulators around the world consistently state that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks of extremely rare potential side effects,” the spokesperson added.

Vaxzevria is the name of AstraZeneca’s vaccine.
