HPV vaccine linked to 14 yr old girl's death.

In ref the bolded part; Is that the message you get from this?!!! As a parent?!! Either he's a schill for the govt and big pharma marriage, or he's seriously lacking in understanding parents concern for their children. Upshot of all this is, wait to get the vaccine, if ever.

Police are treating the girl's death as "unexplained" and
said a post-mortem was taking place on Tuesday.

The teenager, named by a police source as Natalie Morton,
fell ill on Monday after being vaccinated at her school under a
national immunisation programme against the sexually
transmitted human papilloma virus

"The message for parents at this moment in time and for
young girls receiving this vaccine is that you should go ahead
with the vaccination,"
said Grainger, who works for the
National Health Service in the central English city of
Coventry.

Hard to say ...

Personally I think that the title you chose for the post is misleading. Until the autopsy results are back there is not enough information to draw any conclusions. The batch of vaccine in question has been taken out of use, but that probably isn't enough to allay many fears on the part of parents.

For those of us in the US I'd say it's irrelevant. The only HPV vaccine in use here at present is different from the one in the UK case. The vaccine used in the UK is currently under FDA evaluation but is not yet on the market.

The only link seems to be time and place, neither of which

is causal. No results from the PM yet (that's post-mortem, not Prime Minister) which is the only procedure likely to reveal a link if there is one.

Britain has a very bad track record regarding normal childhood vaccinations. There are all kinds of myths and unfounded tales that link vaccinations to all sorts of bad outcomes and to the onset of normal childhood afflictions like autism. Curious that the rate of Autism per 100,000 is the same as in European countries where vaccination is very strictly observed, and the US which hovers somewhere between Europe and the UK in terms of compliance.
