Northwestern University student appears to have died from heart inflammation linked to COVID vaccine
A 19-year-old Northwestern University student died on June 11, two months after she received her first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and a month after receiving the second dose.
While her doctors have not fully confirmed the cause of her death, it appears that Simone Scott (right) suffered from myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscles. Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s doctors were able to obtain a new heart for Scott, but that lasted less than one week.
The university appeared to have told students that she died from a heart transplant. “Scott’s death came weeks after a heart complication in May which led to a heart transplant,” The Daily Northwestern reported. The private university north of Chicago sent an email to the university community last weekend.
“She passed away due to pneumonia-related issues, and was surrounded by her parents,” the campus paper said.
“She’d just received her second vaccine shot on May 1,” WLWT 5 reported.
