Cypriot health authorities are investigating whether Dubois’s death was linked to the AstraZeneca jab. They are yet to confirm her identification.

The British-born model posted publicly about feeling ill after having the vaccine on May 6, saying she felt ‘horrendous’ after the first dose.

On May 14, Dubois made a second public post about her condition, revealing she had woken up with full body shakes, seized joints, dizziness, a headache, and that she was struggling to breathe. 

She said she though she had contracted Covid-19 but had a test, which came back negative. 

Tributes rushed in for the British born model, who had been living in Cyprus for the last five months. 

Stafford hairdresser Francesco Group Church Lane expressed their condolences, writing on Facebook: ‘Very sad to hear that Stephanie Dubois has died. Stephanie modelled for us some years ago and was part of our winning collection. Our sincere condolences to her family.’

A GoFundMe page set up by Kamran Abassalty for Dubois’s funeral and memorial arrangements has so far raised £1,810. 

Photographer Marc Bergmann wrote on it: ‘Stephanie was much more than just a model for me, she was an open minded friend, a serious as well as funny person, and in her job so wonderful professional. 

‘I will miss her, but I hope I can keep her alive with my pictures of her, talking about her, and keeping her in my heart forever.’Tributes rushed in for the British-born model+9

Charalambos Charilaou, the spokesperson for the state health services, said the European Medicines Agency (EMA) would investigate Dubois’s death and whether it was linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Cypriot authorities are investigating another four other cases of ‘mild’ blood clotting incidents – three of which occurred after an AstraZeneca shot and one after a Pfizer jab – are also being investigated by Cyprus.

Some countries have restricted or dropped AstraZeneca shots from national vaccine campaigns over very rare blood clots, though the EMA says the benefits outweigh the risks.

AstraZeneca is the backbone of the vaccination rollout in Cyprus, where family doctors also allowed to administer the jab to anybody aged over 20.

But many people booking online to get the vaccine have snubbed AstraZeneca and opted for other shots.
