I would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support of our fundraising campaign and provide an update.
For those readers not familiar with this case, or if you need a refresher, please go to Help fund a public inquest into possible vaccine death which includes a comprehensive timeline.
A long year
It’s been a year now since I launched this campaign, and thanks to your generous donations I have been able to pay for two expert medical reports as well as legal fees.
I have finally received the first expert report, with the second expected in coming weeks. Much of the delay has been due to the difficulty in obtaining all of Lindsey’s medical records.
A sudden death so shortly after vaccination needs close scrutiny. After all, vaccination is a medical procedure performed on healthy people to prevent disease, not to treat sick people. As is noted in the timeline on my website, the Coroner concluded in November 2018 that “it is appropriate to re-open this matter and to hold an inquest where all the medical evidence can be carefully and fully examined in open court”.
Changing the cause of death to Coronary Artery Disease just didn’t make sense in the absence of good evidence, which the NSW Health Expert Review Panel did not provide.
First expert report
The first expert report I have received confirms my concerns that not all of the evidence was appropriately taken into consideration and raises key red flags.
1. The failure to include a Neurologist on the NSW Health expert panel
“The failure to include a Neurologist on the expert panel is inexplicable, given the initial seizure, dilated pupil and CT findings of early, massively raised intracranial pressure.”
2. Cardiologist appearing out-of-session on the NSW Health Expert Review Panel
“The failure to include a cardiologist in session is inexplicable considering the final conclusions of Acute Coronary Death secondary to coronary artery disease. The statement “there was.. significant clinical and post-mortem evidence” is breath-taking when compared to the absence of confirmatory clinical data, the volume of contrary evidence, and the absence of photographic records of the histologic analysis of the coronary arteries and myocardium.”
3. Lack of evidence or withholding of evidence
Surprisingly, the independent expert I engaged was unable to obtain critical histological slides or photos of specimens of the coronary arteries and myocardium despite repeated requests for this information. This (absent) evidence constitutes the bulk of physical evidence relied on by the Coroners Court, the TGA, and the expert committee to arrive at a diagnosis of coronary artery disease.
Most plausible cause of death
In the absence of the evidence relied upon by the Coroner, the rest of the evidence is inconsistent with a diagnosis of Coronary Artery disease.
“After reviewing the available evidence, I have determined that the most plausible explanation for the death of Mr. Lindsey Day is that he developed an encephalitis after vaccination, and that this lead to cerebral oedema, cerebellar coning, seizure and cardiac arrest.”
Encephalitis following vaccination
Encephalitis occurring within 72 hours of receiving a pertussis containing vaccine is a table injury under the U.S. Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which means that it is accepted as being causal. The VICP also covers seasonal flu vaccines if you can show that your injuries resulted from the vaccination.
Lindsey received both a pertussis containing vaccine (Boostrix) and a seasonal influenza vaccine (FluQuadri).
Ongoing support needed
With your help, I will continue to fight for answers and a public inquest in open court where all evidence can be transparently examined.
If you are able to make a donation to my campaign, please go to Fundraising. All donations, big or small, will be gratefully received, and I will continue to provide further updates as new information comes to hand. Funds raised will go towards the cost of further expert reports, solicitor fees, and counsel fees as required.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
