A BBC presenter has died of a blood clot after she took AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine, leading a coroner to investigate whether the vaccine led to her death.

Lisa Shaw, a 44-year-old presenter for BBC Radio Newcastle, died in the hospital last Friday as she was being treated for blood clots days after receiving her first jab of the AstraZeneca vaccine shot, the BBC reported. Blood clots have previously been identified as a very rare side effect that can occur after people, usually in their 40s, receive the AstraZeneca vaccine—which has not been authorized for use in the United States.

"Lisa developed severe headaches a week after receiving her AstraZeneca vaccine and fell seriously ill a few days later," Shaw's family said in a statement about her death released by the BBC, Newcastle's Evening Chronicle reported on Thursday. "She was treated by the Royal Victoria Infirmary's intensive care team for blood clots and bleeding in her head."
