Former beauty queen, 28, dies two days after receiving Covid jab

A physical therapist in the United States has died two days after receiving a covid vaccine, believed to be either the Pfizer or Moderna variant.

Haley Link Brinkmeyer, 28, from Indiana, died on January 21 two days after receiving the shot, according to the website "The Covid Blog".

The blog is run by COVID Legal USA and publishes conspiracy theories about Covid-19 and the vaccine.

It also helps individuals to fight litigation against companies that are enforcing mandatory vaccination.

Brinkmeyer’s death has stunned her family.

Posting a tribute on Facebook, her father-in-law James Brinkmeyer said: "Our hearts have been broken upon the passing of Evan’s wife and high school sweetheart Haley Link Brinkmeyer.

"No words can express the depths of the loss being felt by Haley and Evan’s families.

"We will put our faith in God to give us strength as we try to understand why. Please pray for Haley and Evan and their families. Lastly, if you have kids give them a hug today and tell them you love them."

Born on August 4 1992, the young physical therapist worked at North River Health Campus in Indiana, a senior living community after graduating with a doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Evansville in 2018.

She was married to her high school sweetheart Evan Brinkmeyer for two years, the pair were crowned homecoming king and queen at high school.

Her obituary adds: "Haley's smile captured the hearts of all who knew and loved her and we will miss her presence in our lives."

Sadly, Haley’s sudden passing is one of several deaths the blog tries to attribute to the vaccine, even though no causal link has been established between her tragic death and her receiving the shot.

Nearly 21 million people in the UK have received their first dose of the vaccine as of March 4, according to a report from Sky News.

The British Medical Journal has said the initial vaccine safety data are "reassuring" in a report published on February 8 2021.

It also said: "Severe allergic reactions were reported after administration of the first doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on 9 December.

"Subsequently, the MHRA advised against its use for people with a history of severe allergic reactions to any ingredients in the vaccine and said that recipients should be monitored for at least 15 minutes."

However, it added: “Most reported side effects were mild; a sore arm was the most common, and others included headache, tiredness, and a mild flu-like illness.”

Safety testing with the vaccine is ongoing to ensure it is safe and effective.
