The unfortunate woman is asking the officials to compensate her for her mother’s death of a confirmed complication of the COVID-19 vaccine. Her mom died 13 days after she received the single-shot at a CVS pharmacy on April 8, just five days before federal health agencies temporarily paused the vaccine administration while they examined an unusual blood-clotting disorder. Pathologist said that the 60-year-old woman succumbed to a rare complication associated with the viral vector vaccine, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.
The woman from Michigan ,Tatum Strieter-Byron, told MLIVE that she received confirmation her claim to the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program has been received.
According to the state officials, this program benefits Americans seriously injured or killed by a vaccination, medication, device or other item recommended to diagnose, prevent or treat a declared pandemic, epidemic or other security threat.
It was established because COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers and others are granted liability protections through the Public Readiness Emergency Preparedness Act.
Officials said that claims to the compensation program must be made within one year of the date the covered countermeasure was received.
Her 60-year-old mother, Sandra Jacobs, received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at a CVS pharmacy on April 8, just five days before federal health agencies temporarily paused the vaccine administration while they examined an unusual blood-clotting disorder.
Unfortunately, the woman died on April 21. According to her daughter, Sandra reportedly died of complications of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, which is a type of stroke.
On Sept. 20,2021, Michigan Medicine pathologist Dr. Michael Caplan completed the autopsy report. Dr. Caplan reportedly said that the 60-year-old woman succumbed to a rare complication associated with the viral vector vaccine, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. The condition is characterized by a blood clot in the venous sinuses, part of the brain’s blood drainage system, health officials said.
Strieter-Byron told MLIVE that she reportedly took her case to multiple law firms. Unfortunately, no lawyer has agreed to take action on her behalf. One firm advised her to file the countermeasures claim and the woman did on her own.
Strieter-Byron will have to show the stroke or hemorrhage in her mother’ brain was a direct result of the vaccine, experts said.
The unfortunate woman still doesn’t know what to expect. She reportedly said that she is not in need of money. She just hopes someday she will be able to participate in a class-action lawsuit.
Tatum Strieter-Byron reportedly said: “This is about the fact that there was wrongdoing that took place, and we are going to hold them accountable. It’s incredibly frustrating to, I would say, the families that we’re not able to really do anything. Our hands are tied. Something like this happens and there is no recourse.”
