Late BBC presenter Lisa Shaw gave her husband one final kiss and told him “I’m tired” before she sadly passed away.

Lisa, who worked for BBC Newcastle, died aged 44 in May after suffering from “severe” headaches and a brain bleed just one week after getting her Covid jab.

The TV presenter’s final moments were spent with her husband Gareth Eve by her side at the high dependancy unit in hospital.

He has opened up about the last time he spoke to Lisa before she passed, telling BBC star Victoria Derbyshire: “I went to see her and she told me to go home and see our son because it was late.

“She said ‘I’m tired’. I gave her a kiss. And I never spoke to her again.”

A certificate notes a “complication of AstraZeneca Covid-19 virus vaccination” as one of the possible causes of her death.

Lisa, who was a proud mum-of-one, developed symptoms just a week after her first jab and she fell seriously ill a few days later.

The presenter was not known to have any underlying health problems.

Gareth explained how Lisa was excited to get her jab as she was “excited” to “give her mam a hug”.

Lisa’s husband said he is “absolutely not an anti-vaxxer” as he shared praise for the jab, but he added that people should be given an alternative to the AstraZeneca jab while there is a “cloud over it”.

He added: “What the vaccine has done is unbelievable. The work these people have done to get the country back on its feet is outstanding.

“But we need to recognise there are families who have been affected by this jab.”

In May, her devastated family revealed Lisa died at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, after being treated in intensive care for blood clots and bleeding.

People under 40 in the UK are being offered an alternative to the AstraZeneca vaccine following reports of extremely rare blood clots on the brain coupled with low blood platelet count.
