Family Intends to Take Legal Action Over 26-Year-Old Son Who Died of ‘Catastrophic’ Blood Clots on His Brain After AstraZeneca COVID-19 Jab


“The heartbroken family of a 26-year-old graduate who died from ‘catastrophic’ blood clots on his brain two weeks after he received an AstraZeneca vaccine are set to take legal action over his death,” the Daily Mail reports.

Jack Hurn, from Redditch, died last June after receiving his first dose at a Dudley vaccine centre on May 29.

He allegedly asked staff about an alternative jab, such as Pfizer, due to concerns that under-30s should get an alternative to the AstraZeneca injection. 

An inquest will open into Hurn’s death on Monday, which his family hope will provide answers to his tragic death. 

His family had raised concerns about vaccine clinic advice and hospital care.

They’re considering a clinical negligence claim. 

The Daily Mail reported:

Lawyers for the family say he and his girlfriend Alex Jones were told there was no Pfizer vaccine available on the day he was vaccinated.

They had allegedly asked staff about alternative vaccines as they were ‘aware of concerns around the use of AstraZeneca’ for younger people.

Lawyers say medical advice at the time recommended that under-30s should get an alternative to the AstraZeneca vaccine after it was revealed that younger people were at greater risk of blood clots.

The risk was reported to be ‘extremely rare’, with less than one in 100,000 experiencing the clots.

But staff were said to have reassured them that the jab was safe and they went ahead with it.

A spokesperson for the law firm said: ‘The family are looking at a clinical negligence claim but are waiting for the results of the inquest to decide on next steps.’

Mr Hurn, originally from Devon, began suffering headaches within days and died on June 11 last year at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital after doctors allegedly described him as having ‘catastrophic’ blood clots on the brain.

The automotive design graduate had recently bought his first home with Ms Jones.

His partner, who also received the same jab at the same time, found out after his death that he was planning to propose to her that summer.

Mr Hurn’s devastated family have instructed clinical negligence specialists at Midlands law firm FBC Manby Bowdler, after raising concerns about advice given at the vaccine clinic and the standard of care received in hospital once he fell ill.
