Coroner Says, Link between Flu Vaccine and Tot's Death cannot be Excluded

A connection between the demise of a two-year-old girl in April and the seasonal flu vaccine cannot be overlooked, says a Brisbane Coroner. A day after Ashley Epapara and her twin were vaccinated against the flu by a GP, she succumbed to death.

The results of the post-mortem were indecisive.

According to Coroner John Lock, the reason behind the tot's death could not be figured out in an extensive probe, however, its relation with the inoculation cannot be ruled out.

Mr. Lock said, "There was no finding to causally connect the young child's death with the flu vaccination. However, I have concluded that a link between the vaccination and the death cannot be absolutely excluded”.

The medical cause of her demise is still not known.

He added that further investigation in the case would not fetch any positive results, because the information that they could get is already out and there’s no likelihood of finding new facts.

The results of the coronial inquiry have been revealed to the girl’s family.

Subsequent to the toddler’s death, authorities have placed a provisional ban on the seasonal Fluvax vaccine, for children below five years in age. The Commonwealth Chief Medical Officer, in July, suggested that the injunction should stay in place, as the vaccine boosted the possibility of febrile convulsions.
