Parents urged to keep faith with cancer jab

1st October 2009

The chief nursing officer Christine Beasley has urged parents to continue getting their daughters vaccinated against cervical cancer following the death of a 14-year-old girl from Coventry.

Natalie Morton fell ill shortly after being given the Cervarix jab, but it has now emerged she had a serious underlying health condition. Ms Beasley has stressed that the vaccination protects against cervical cancer and could save lives. Coventry postponed its immunisation clinics immediately after the death while the batch of vaccines was quarantined.
