Hudson-Samuels’ husband found her dead in her home. She had received the COVID-19 vaccine only one day earlier, but no official cause of death has been given.

“We suspect it may have just been a stroke but because of the normal side effects of the vaccine it may have masked that,” said Cliff Samuels, her husband. “Hopefully we’ll know soon from the autopsy report.”
