14 Year Old British Girl Dies After HPV Vaccination

COVENTRY, UK, September 29, 2009 ( - Natalie Morton, a 14-year-old girl who attended the Blue Coat Church of England School in Coventry, died today, hours after being given Cervarix - the controversial cervical cancer vaccine manufactured for the UK market by Glaxo SmithKline.

Natalie was injected with the vaccine as part of the UK National Health Service's (NHS) immunization program directed at teenage girls with the purpose of protecting them against strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is a sexually transmitted disease.

The NHS started the HPV vaccination program in April last year and has recorded 2,137 reports of adverse effects following the injection.
Unfortunately, Canada too is not immune from HPV vaccine-related deaths, as Gardasil not only was approved by Health Canada, but the government even went as far as allocating $300 million for the vaccine to be given to girls aged 9 to 12. Can we look forward for the vaccinations to stop following this death? I wish we could, but there's little hope. After all, it's not the first time when the controversial vaccine turns out to be deadly. Which means - it's the parents that must watch the schools and make sure that nobody injects this trash to their children.
