Girl, 13, left in ‘waking coma’ and sleeps for 23 hours a day after severe reaction to cervical cancer jabs

The UK’s The Daily Mail Newspaper Paul Sims reports [15th November 2011]:

Girl, 13, left in ‘waking coma’ and sleeps for 23 hours a day after severe reaction to cervical cancer jabs

Lucy Hinks is unable to walk or talk after having injections at school.

Parents warn others to check on potential side effects of Cervarix vaccine.

Lucy Hinks, 13, began to experience extreme exhaustion soon after having the cervical cancer vaccine alongside classmates

They were told the vaccine had few side-effects and would protect their daughter from cervical cancer. But Steve and Pauline Hinks are convinced the controversial HPV jab is behind their daughter Lucy’s mystery illness which is making her sleep up to 23 hours a day. Tests have so far ruled out a brain tumour and glandular fever and the 13-year-old’s paediatric consultant is investigating potential links with the vaccine Cervarix. The jab was used in a national vaccination programme which started in September 2008. But it has already been linked to several cases of girls displaying severe side-effects. Before she received the vaccine, Lucy was perfectly healthy, had an excellent school attendance record and was among the top students in her year.
