An unnamed “serious underlying health condition,” not an inoculation intended to prevent cervical cancer, was likely responsible for the death of 14-year-old schoolgirl Nathalie Morton, a preliminary report from British health officials concludes. Morton died suddenly on Monday shortly after receiving the Cervarix vaccine, prompting widespread fear about a drug offered to millions of girls in Britain as part of a national immunization campaign. At least nine other girls at Morton’s school received medical attention after apparently suffering side effects related to the jab. As a precautionary measure, the batch of vaccine used at the school remains under quarantine.
