School girl dies shortly after receiving cervical cancer vaccine

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on September 28, 2009

BBC reports that a 14-year-old girl has died “shortly after the girl had received her HPV vaccine in the school.” An autopsy has not yet been performed to determine the exact cause of death, but expect the anti-vax woo woos to leap at this opportunity to trash vaccines in general. Obviously it is too early to know exactly what happened so a dismissal of a vaccine connection to this event, or a conclusion that the vaccine is responsible, are unwarranted and cannot be supported by the facts that have been made public. Both sides, us and the anti-vax woo woos should wait before proclaiming one way or another. But something tells me the woo woos do not play by this rule. We’ll see what happens.
