The husband of radio presenter Lisa Shaw is taking legal action against Astra Zeneca after the covid vaccine caused his wife’s death. The lawsuit is being filed alongside other families affected by deaths resulting from vaccination by the pharmaceutical giant.
It was in May 2021 that BBC worker Lisa Shaw from England took Astra Zeneca’s covid vaccine and died a week later. In August, coroners concluded that Shaw died due to blood clots in her brain caused by the vaccine.
Now her husband, Gareth Eve, along with other families, is taking legal action against the pharmaceutical giant to seek justice for the death of their loved ones. Eve says that after his wife’s death he tried to get redress from the government, but no one listened to him.
– It’s not in my make-up to turn around and say I want to sue somebody but for almost two years we’ve tried to engage with the government and tried to engage with MPs since Lisa died and not one of them has reached out or engaged with us at all, Eve told BBC.
Eve says that all he really wanted was some sort of acknowledgement that there have been deaths from Astra Zeneca’s vaccine, but that all they talk about is how all the covid vaccines have “gone through clinical trials”, “saved thousands of lives” and that there is a payment scheme for those who have suffered “serious disability or death” from the covid vaccine.
– It’s not about covid, it’s not about how many lives the covid vaccination has saved, it’s about what this vaccination has done to Lisa and other families and not about how successful it was or whether somebody is anti-vax.
