Tanya Smith Bio – Wiki
Tanya Smith was a MUM-of-three who died after suffering from blood clots following the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine.
She was rushed to the hospital after waking with stomach cramps days after her jab. The childminder had felt “pretty rough” after having the vaccination in March, her partner said.
She was 43 years old.
Tanya Smith Died
After being admitted to Plymouth’s Derriford Hospital, it was found she had multiple blood clots.
From Mutley in Plymouth, Tanya suffered a heart attack and then deteriorated before dying in hospital on April 3.
Her partner, Kenneth Edwards, said: “She was just outstanding, selfless. She was a childminder, an outstanding childminder for 19 years.
“She leaves three children behind, two grown-up children and a 12-year-old little girl with disabilities. She was the only woman, apart from my mum, who looked after me.
“She loved her family, she was really family orientated and she’d go above and beyond. We’re all pretty lost without her. I’ve never experienced anything like this.”
Experts have stressed cases of blood clots linked to the vaccine are extremely rare.
The latest MHRA data reveals 332 cases of these very rare blood clots reported and 58 deaths.
An inquest will be held into her death later. Part of that inquiry will look at an investigation by University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust, which runs Derriford Hospital, where she died.
Tanya was invited to have a jab early as she was a key worker and a carer for her young daughter, who had disabilities.
Kenneth said by Good Friday – just over a week after the Covid jab – Tanya was “gravely poorly” in hospital and died a day later.
He said she had no underlying health problems apart from an abnormal health rhythm and a “bit of” irritable bowel syndrome.
NHS England declined to comment, but the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said: “We are saddened to hear of the death of Tanya Smith and our thoughts are with the family.
