They say he died of “unrelated causes” to the coronavirus shot.
But the fact is – William Shakespeare – the first person to get the COVID19 vaccine, has died six months after receiving the shot.
William Shakespeare, who made international headlines in December when he became the first man – and second person – in the U.K. to receive an approved vaccine for COVID-19, has died of an unrelated illness at the age of 81.
Shakespeare died on Thursday, Coventry Councilor and personal friend Jayne Innes told the BBC. Innes told the outlet that the “best tribute to Bill is to have the jab.”
Shakespeare, who worked for Rolls Royce and as a parish councilor, died of a stroke, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust told the BBC.
His age will likely keep most people from questioning any relationship between the covid vaccine and his death six months later.
Shakespeare is survived by his wife, Joy, two sons and his grandchildren, according to FOX59.
