Rhonda Renata is in no doubt about what caused the death of her daughter Jasmine.
The 18-year-old died last September 22 at her family home in Upper Hutt, apparently in her sleep.
Her grieving mother is still waiting for official answers on what happened to Jasmine but she doubts the medical investigations will provide them.
Her own inquiries have led her to cases overseas which she considers similar to Jasmine’s clutch of symptoms before she died.
In the United States, it has been alleged more than 10 deaths are linked to Gardasil.
Several lawsuits have been filed relating to paralysis of teenage girls, one of whom died.
CSL, which markets Gardasil in New Zealand, said it was unlikely the investigations would find the vaccine caused Jasmine’s death.
