Covid Vaccine - Stroke

Moderna Covid Vaccine - Stroke

hello.  My elderly mom (92) received her second moderna vaccine on April 2.  Afterward she started to complain about an extreme headache above her eye; extreme coughing and chills.  When I returned back from traveling on April 12 we did a telemed with her doctor and got her covid tested and chest X-ray (all negative).   Other than those symptoms my mom was doing great and very clear minded.  That evening she had a stroke (bleed in right thamalus).    Unfortunately the effects of this stroke took her life on April 27.  
Has there been anyone else who experienced a stroke after being vaccinated?   Perhaps it's coincidence but I am suspicious because my mom was in general good health prior to this.

    Thank you for joining the Support Network and sharing your story. We hope that you are able to find the support you need. I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I know that nothing will bring her back but finding others to connect with will hopefully help your grieving process. As you wait for others to respond, I can share this resource with you on the COVID-19 Vaccination, which includes a section about the side effects. If you are searching for more specific answers, I would contact your mother's doctors, as they would have the best insight into what happened.

    Please continue to reach out if you are ever struggling emotionally with this loss.
