KIVETON, ROTHERHAM – A 49-year-old woman needed life-saving surgery after blood clots caused by the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Kerry Hurt had a blood clot form on her brain just one week after getting her AstraZeneca dose back in April leading to her needing life-saving treatment at Hallamshire Hospital. The 49-year-old underwent surgery which involved removing part of her skull before suffering a “massive stroke”, resulting in the left side of her body becoming paralyzed. After nearly five months in hospital, Kerry has now returned home where the downstairs area has been converted to better support her in her current condition.
Kerry’s husband, Patrick, calls on the government to provide better support to families like his:
“I do think it was rushed through. We didn’t know about blood clots until they came out later but they have not said what they will do for people affected by them. We know it’s saved a lot of people but for us, it went wrong and they need to support us.”
“We thought we were doing the right thing by taking the vaccine but obviously it all went a bit pear shaped for me.”
Kerry is scheduled for another operation where a metal plate will be inserted in the place of the missing part of her skull. Asked how she has managed to deal with the situation so well, she said:
“I think it’s just taking it a day at a time and having a positive attitude.”
