Woman From Cumbria, UK Is the First Person To Receive Compensation for COVID Vaccine Injury After Her Fiance’s Death

A woman from Cumbria, England is the first person in the UK to be granted COVID vaccine compensation.  This comes in the wake of her fiancés death after he died unexpectedly after receiving the AstraZeneca jab.  

Vikki Spit was awarded the maximum settlement of £120,000 ($146,830) after her 48-year-old partner, Zion, fell ill for eight days with headache-type symptoms after receiving AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine on May 13, 2021.

Vikki said that the paramedics who attended Zion, despite the window for a blood clot being four to 28 days post-vaccination, did not recognize that his symptoms could be linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine and so they didn’t administer the right tests, which may or may not have saved his life. Doctors have confirmed that his death was directly due to a complication of the vaccine.

 “The length of time taken to process the application has meant that Vikki has had to incur numerous debts during the interim period as she struggled without Zion’s earnings, Vikki’s lawyers said. “As a result, Vikki is now calling on the Government to increase the maximum compensation amount in order to better reflect current conditions and represent the loss of earnings that a person in their 40s would have made before their retirement. The maximum figure for compensation – £120,000 – has failed to keep pace with inflation. The figure was set at £10,000 in 1979, when legislation was passed, which equates to roughly £180,000 now.”

Vikki is calling for measures in dealing with vaccine injuries and deaths to be reformed so that others who have injured by the vaccine will receive compensation more easily. 

In a statement, Vikki said, “I am still heartbroken by the sudden loss of my partner of 21 years, and alongside this emotional trauma, I have also been faced with financial hardship as a result of the loss of Zion’s contribution to household finances.

“The £120,000 payment from the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme does not begin to cover the loss of earnings that a person in their 40s would have made before they retired. There just isn’t the proper financial aid coming from the government to support those who have lost family to the vaccine.”

Vikki Spit was not the first person to be compensated as a result of loss due to vaccine injury. In Canada, a 40-year-old father from British Columbia was one of the first people in the country to be compensated after he suffered an adverse reaction connected to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Ross Wightman, who is a former pilot and realtor was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), which is a rare disorder where the body’s immune system attacks your nerves, causing paralysis.  

After receiving the vaccine last April, Wightman became partially paralyzed from the waist down and suffered full facial paralysis after being diagnosed with the disease due to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Last May, Wightman posted a letter he received from the federal Vaccine Injury Support Program on his social media account stating that “there is a probable causal association between the injuries sustained and the vaccination.”

As more and more cases come to light, many more people will certainly begin to question the integrity of these jabs, and of those who insisted we the people make the choice to take them or lose our livelihoods.
