Girl paralysed after cervical jab

15th December 2008

A 12-year-old girl has become "paralysed" after being injected with the cervical cancer vaccine.

The injection has been linked with Guillan-Barré syndrome after several girls in America were paralysed. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, the government agency which monitors medication, said: "Guillain-Barré syndrome naturally occurs in the population. There is no good evidence to suggest that the Cervarix vaccine can cause [it]."
