    It is extremely rare for a 14 year old girl does to get a stoke (“ischemic attack”), let alone attribute it to what one might consider a profoundly extreme flu of any sort. The public prosecutor should find that this unfortunate circumstance came about from some underlying condition.

    Nonetheless, the most probably suffering parents to such a loss should also be reprimanded in the event that they could have done anything earlier like administer blood thinners or more immediately intervene.

    These anti-vaxers are truly brainless and this is an ultimate price to pay.
