So, she didn't die from the vaccine, but from a malignant tumor...

The teenage girl who died shortly after being immunised against cervical cancer was killed by a malignant chest tumour and not by a reaction to the vaccine manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK.L), an inquest heard on Thursday.

"The pathologist has confirmed today at the opening of the inquest into the death of Natalie Morton that she died from a large malignant tumour of unknown origin in the heart and lungs," said Dr Caron Grainger, joint director of public health for the Coventry area where Natalie died.

  • There are hundreds of different types of HPV, the vaccine only covers 2 of them. My daughter won't have the vaccine.

  • People just need to stop spreading unsubstantiated rumors about vaccines and realize that coincidences happen. I NEVER believed this girl died from the Guardisail vaccine. I know many girls that have had this vaccine and are fine. My niece will be getting this shot next year. Her mother had cervical cancer and will do whatever she can to help prevent her daughter from going through what she had to go through.

  • because nobody is looking for a tumor in an otherwise young healthy child...and it was easier to just blame the vaccine instead of looking further.
