Get vaccinated, says sister of blood clot victim

Neil Astles died on Sunday (April 4) after having the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine on March 17.

His sister, Dr. Alison Astles, told the BBC how her brother began to have a headache and felt unwell after a week before losing his vision eight days later.

She said her brother was taken to hospital on April 2 , where doctors found a "huge blood clot and bleed" on his brain.

While a full autopsy report is yet to be completed, Dr Astles, a pharmacist, said the family were told by clinicians they were 99.9% sure the clot was due to the vaccine.
