Fourteen year old Natalie Morton, walked into school yesterday a happy, healthy little girl. Sadly, today she did not and tragically she will never walk through her school gates again. Yesterday Natalie was given one dose of the Cervarix HPV vaccine, the vaccine that the UK Government has portrayed as safe, a vaccine that Glaxo Smith Kline has said over and over is safe. For this little girl Cervarix was not because she died just a few hours later.
If Natalie was an isolated incident it could be seen to be a tragic but extremely rare allergic reaction. It is a recognised fact that all vaccines and medications carry risks but Cervarix has been in use for just under a year and although this is the first death associated with the vaccine, it is far from being the first adverse event. The adverse events are mounting up at an alarming rate.
These are recent figure taken from the MHRA or the Yellow Card reporting system
“This report summarises the adverse reactions suspected to have been caused by Cervarix human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in the UK. This includes reports received between 14 April 2008 and 23 September 2009. These reports have been voluntarily submitted to the MHRA by healthcare professionals and members of the public via the Yellow Card Scheme .
SUMMARY OF UK SAFETY EXPERIENCE
Total number of reports received: 2,137
Total number of suspected reactions: 4,657
Estimated number of doses administered across the UK: at least 1.4 million doses”
These are the number reported so far as at 24th September 2009.
409 0f these reports are of anaphylaxic shock which can if left untreated lead to death, so is a severe reaction more common than we are led to believe?
As yet it is not known conclusively that Natalie died from the Cervarix vaccine but given that classmates also suffered reactions albeit mild in comparison, it is definitely time to get worried.
A full investigation is under way and the batch of vaccines that all the girls were vaccinated with has been quarantined as a precaution. A possible faulty batch is being blamed.
These are tributes from friends of Natalie taken from an article in the Telegraph by Chris Irvine Tributes to 14yr old schoolgirl who died after being given cervical cancer jab
“Tributes were already being posted last night on social networking website Facebook. A group titled ‘Natalie Morton – Forever in our hearts’ already had more than 200 members.
One friend, Suzie Grace Gee, wrote: “What a lovely girl. Always had a smile on her face! It’s such a shock to everyone, and it’s going to be odd not seeing her every Sunday at church. She will forever be missed, and my thoughts and prayers are with the family. She’s with Jesus now! Rest in peace.”
Another, Hannah Howard, wrote: “We had the best times at church and at the clubs we went to. I have like grown up with you. You are with god now and I hope and pray he will be there for you loking [sic] after you. I hope to see you again one day”.
Reports on the news say just three other girls suffered side effects however in this article it is reported that school doctor wrote to parents saying a number of girls had side effects and some were sent home.
All this sadly has come has no surprise to ICAP who have been fighting hard to have their concerns listened to as have JABS a support group for vaccine damaged children and their families run by Jackie Fletcher.
Jackie said yesterday to the Daily Express after she called for immediate withdrawal of the HPV vaccines .
“These dangerous side-effects must be investigated straight away. Recalling the jabs is not scare-scaremongering.”
Political advisor for ICAP in the UK, Freda Birrell has also urged for immediate withdrawal of the HPV vaccine programme, speaking to the American Chronicle she said:-
“If only government Ministers, Shadow Ministers and members of parliament in the UK and Scotland had only listened and recognized that by condoning a mass vaccination programme from a school hall, without careful medical checks being carried out on the young girls, was going to sadly lead to this day when one young girl who left home to go to school never returned back to the loving care of her parents. Natalie Morton and her parents trusted the UK Government and yet no doubt the Secretary of State for Health will try and find a way out of this by stating statistics versus human life.”
Birrell feels that if, as the Government has said this vaccine was safe, then adverse reactions would not be mounting up at the alarming rate they are and this tragic death could have possibly been avoided.
Leslie Botha one of the authors of the USA papers sent to German Scientists at Robert Koche Institute warning them of the USA concern on HPV vaccines, said in an email to me last night that she felt this was just the tip of the iceberg she went on:-
“Such sad news….. my heart is broken”
ICAP UK have also sent papers to the RKI alerting them to their fears over the Cervarix vaccine. These were written with evidence and facts that spelt out the problems with Cervarix. These papers have been sent around the world including the UK Government and Department of Health. Freda Birrell has been extremely pro active having many discussions and meetings with not only the Scottish Parliament but the UK Government, even meeting politicians at the House of Lords.
All the ICAP Cervarix and Gardasil Documents can be read on the Profitable Harm website
These are other girls in the UK that have had severe adverse reactions to Cervarix
How many more deaths have to happen before the UK Government will listen?
Gardasil in the USA has now a list of 42 deaths to it’s collection.
This is a selection of girls who have died after the HPV Vaccine Gardasil
Megan Hild – New Mexico
Jenny Tetlock -California,
Moshella Roberts- Fayetteville,
Brooke Petkevicius – Florida,
Christina Richelle Tarsell – Maryland,
Amber Kaufman – Missori,
All their stories and many others with photos can be read on a document Freda Birrell prepared for the UK Government on the dangers of HPV vaccines. Mermorial – Gardasil and how it has affected the lives of young women and their families
All these stories from around the world prove that these vaccines are far from safe and an urgent withdrawal of both the Gardasil and the Cervarix vaccine needs to take place and full investigations into to why more stringent testing did not take place before allowing possible killer vaccines to be given to children and young women.
My thoughts and prayers are with this family today as they begin to mourn the loss of their beautiful child.
