The recent death of a teenage girl in the UK shortly after she was immunized with a dose of the cervical cancer vaccine Cervarix raised fears about possible side effects. But an inquest heard that the girl died of a malignant chest tumor rather than any reaction. "There is no indication that the HPV vaccine, which she had received shortly before her death, was a contributing factor to the death, which could have arisen at any point," said Dr Caron Grainger, joint director of public health for the Coventry area.

"There is no indication that the HPV vaccine, which she had received shortly before her death, was a contributing factor to the death, which could have arisen at any point," Dr Caron Grainger, joint director of public health for the Coventry area where Natalie died said in a statement.

I got a frickin idea, why doesn't Dr. Grainger go get a dose of that safe batch of Cervarix out of the GlaxoSmithKline incinerator, before they destroy it, and inject it into her own 14 year old daughter if she is certain there is no "contributing factor" to Natalie Morton's death? ..... oh man I didn't mean that, she would probably do it. Seriously, I take it back, don't do it. Don't hurt your daughter. Seriously don't.

What about the other 4 girls that got sick that day immediately after getting the shot?
