COVENTRY, UK, September 29, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - 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.
Health officials said today they are not sure whether Natalie had an extreme reaction to a standard vaccine, or whether the particular dose she was given was from a "rogue contaminated batch."
Either situation raises serious questions about the safety of the vaccine.
Dr. Caron Grainger, director for public health at Coventry city council, said an autopsy will be conducted to investigate if the vaccine played a role in Natalie's death.
"No link can be made between the death and the vaccine until all the facts are known and a post-mortem takes place," Grainger told the UK Daily Mail.
Mike Attwood, a spokesman for Coventry Primary Care Trust said: "An urgent investigation has been launched and while we wait for the results from the post mortem all vaccinations using the drug have been temporarily stopped."
The National Vaccine Information Centre (NVC), a private vaccine-safety group based in the US, reported that from 2006 as many as 11,900 girls and young women had reported adverse events after receiving the Gardasil vaccine, which is manufactured by Merck Pharmaceutical for use in the US and Canada.
These adverse events included such mild reactions as pain, fever, nausea, dizziness and itching, to serious effects such as Bells Palsy, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and seizures. The number of deaths associated with the Gardasil vaccine by the NVC is between 32 and 45 in the US alone.

This is sickening...and so very sad. Let’s pray for her grieving family. They must have a load of guilt.
A “rogue contaminated batch”.
I thought vaccines were totally safe. Why would anyone ever object to taking them, especially if the government tells you you have to because it’s good for you? /sarc
Sad, sad story. If only her parents had the faith of a mustard seed ... they could move mountains ... (and still have their daughter as well) ...
This is what happens when there is a single payer for drugs, and that payer is the government. It makes it SO EASY for the drug companies to sell WHATEVER they want! You, the citizen, no longer get a say in what meds you get - corporate profits and government “interest” reign supreme.
Why would they feel guilty? This girl was injected by GOVERNMENT MANDATE at her SCHOOL — the parents did NOT drag her to the doctor after choosing this!! Don’t you understand? Britain has a single-payer system and mandates for these things.
Because nothing bad happens to people of faith?
I suggest you read again the book of Job.
Well, whatcha gonna do? Gotta get those vaccinations so our slutty daughters can sleep around.
Does anyone remember when the governor of Texas TRIED to mandate this?....not too long ago
“One less” indeed.
Or John the Baptist.
In the mid-1990s, during a period of less than five years, there were 13,641 documented adverse reactions to the oral polio vaccine. 6,364 of these were serious enough to require hospital emergency room visits. 540 people died. Source: Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS); OPV Vaccine Report: Doc. #14.
Just to keep things in perspective, did you hear about this?
Keep this in mind, HPV is 100% preventable through lifestyle choices and therefore NOT a public health risk, this IS NOT the case with polio.
Sure sounds like it.
I guess Stephen was wrong, as well as all but one apostle. If only they had more faith. sarc/
What about the thorn in Paul’s flesh? God’s grace was sufficient, but not in the eyes of these people.
It’s another gospel, not the Lord’s.
Thank-you for making that point!...good!
Yes I do!
