Annie VanGeest has been known as a wonderful mother and proud wife over 13 years, she is a multitasking expert and a staunch advocate of animal rescue in the Saranac community in Ionia County.
Her death, though, was in the press for reasons other than her good work in the community.
She received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on April 8, five days before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention temporarily discontinued it due to blood clots in only a handful of women, three of them. This number is life threatening.
The rare symptoms of a blood clot will develop within six to 15 days of the shot.
“These initial symptoms are rather vague and nonspecific,” said Dr. Tom Shimabukuro of the CDC COVID-19 response. (It’s) a major headache. But more importantly, these headaches started six days after vaccination. ”
VanGeest’s family said her headache started April 16 – eight days after she was shot. She died three days later, on April 19, her death certificate identified natural death, particularly from acute subcutaneous hemorrhage or bleeding between the brain and the tissues surrounding the brain.
In a statement, her family said the 35-year-old wife and mother of four had died “as a result of complications after receiving Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.”
But for now, neither the doctor nor the CDC knows for sure.
