The teenager from Blue Coat Church of England School, in Coventry, died in hospital after receiving the Cervarix jab.
The tragedy marks the first reported death since more than 1.5m doses of the injection were given to young girls as part of a national vaccination programme since last September in the UK.
A number of her classmates have reported side effects to the vaccine.
Critics say the case highlights the risks of mass vaccination, because no testing regime can ever pick up the rarest and potentially most lethal side effects.
Tonight there were calls for the entire cervical cancer vaccination programme to be suspended, but officials from the Department of Health would not say whether it will be halted for tens of thousands of girls due to be given the vaccine in the coming months.

I am posting the email that my colleague Freda in Scotland who is very active on this issue and has met with members of the UK and Scottish parliaments to discuss the dangers of the Cervarix vaccination.
