Cervarix Injury Story

"It was terrifying,' she says. 'I went to hospital and while I was waiting to see a doctor the feeling in my right leg came back. But it took two weeks for it to return to my left leg."

"More worryingly she now suffers full-blown seizures. Although doctors are at a loss to explain why she has developed what appears to be epilepsy"

'I've had my driving licence taken away and I've had to give up my college course,' she explains.

HPV Cervarix side effect story United Kingdom - Leah Mann

Leah Mann - 18 (United Kingdom)

And it's not just 12- and 13-year-old girls that may have been affected. Eighteen-year-old Leah Mann, from Nottinghamshire had her first injection in January.

Ten days later, when she was at work in a fish and chip shop, she felt unwell and collapsed. When she came to, she had no feeling from the waist down.

'It was terrifying,' she says. 'I went to hospital and while I was waiting to see a doctor the feeling in my right leg came back. But it took two weeks for it to return to my left leg.

More worryingly she now suffers full-blown seizures. Although doctors are at a loss to explain why she has developed what appears to be epilepsy, they are more inclined to believe it is associated with the antidepressant medication she had been taking (with no adverse sideeffects for more than a year) than with the vaccine.

'I've had my driving licence taken away and I've had to give up my college course,' she explains.

Leah had been studying equine management, but, because of her seizures, the college's insurance can't cover her horseriding. She will remain housebound until her specialists find the right medication to control her condition.

'It's five weeks since we last saw her neurologist, and she has had 30 seizures in that time,' says her mother, Tracey, 42.

Leah adds: 'Looking back, I felt lucky to have had the injection. But why has my doctor not allowed me to have the second and third doses?'

While GlaxoSmithKline says that 'Cervarix had to undergo rigorous testing with large numbers of people in numerous studies' and was 'found to be generally well tolerated', questions over the safety and efficacy of Cervarix remain.

Dr Richard Halvorsen, author of The Truth about Vaccines, says: 'The HPV vaccines have been introduced at breakneck speed and, in my view, without adequate testing.

It is already the most profitable vaccine ever made and the worry is that it is being introduced too rapidly, for the financial gain of its manufacturers and with too little regard for the health of our young women.
