A man described as a 'musician of extraordinary depth, breadth, and talent' died earlier this year after complications from the first dose of his AstraZeneca Covid vaccine led to 'catastrophic' brain haemorrhage.
Matthew Dibble, 40, took himself to the A&E department at St Thomas' Hospital in London on May 8 after experiencing painful headaches, reports MailOnline.
After being sent home to rest in Lewisham, south London, he was back in hospital on the operating table just two days later as doctors raced to reduce swelling on his brain. He died soon afterwards.
Southwark Coroner's Court heard on Tuesday that his headaches began shortly after he was administered the first dose of the Astrazenca coronavirus vaccine.
A 'vaccine-induced brain haemorrhage' was listed in his post mortem as a contributing factor to his 'unnatural' death, according to Assistant Coroner Dr Julian Morris.
The primary cause of death was registered as brain stem herniation, which occurs when brain tissue, blood, and spinal fluid shifts from its normal position inside the skull.
A fundraising page has been set up by his friends with the goal of recording some of a 'personal' composition that he had been working on in the months before his death.
More than £17,000 has been raised since it was set up.
A post launching the appeal read: "Matt was working with many of us on a number of projects, some of which are now bearing fruit. But few of us knew about a secret and deeply personal undertaking, on which he’d slaved away for six straight years, remarkably finishing just weeks before he passed.
"It meant so much to him that, when he first went to hospital, he told those with him where the compositions could be found, should anything happen."
The written tribute also said that Mr Dibble's death was an "unjust and devastating tragedy for his loving family", and described him as "an individual of uncommon kindness" who was "relentlessly considerate to everyone he knew".
Health experts say deaths from the AstraZeneca vaccine are extremely rare, and that any risks far outweigh those from exposure to a potentially fatal coronavirus infection.
