GLAXO RECALL CERVARIX VACCINE
News just in from the MHRA web page. Glaxo have have ordered a recall of Cervarix... but only one batch?
Judging by the letter, issued by Alison Bunce, Pharmaceutical Assessor, DMRC, it would appear that the investigation into the death of Natalie Morton [I prefer to give this child a name] has already concluded! The last line reads: "Further stocks of vaccine from different batches can be ordered in the usual way."
It would appear that their minds have already been made up whether or not Cervarix was the cause of Natalie Morton's death.
Dear Healthcare Professional,
GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals sa

Human papillomavirus vaccine
Batch number - AHPVA043BB
Expiry date - 09/2010

Following the tragic death of a young girl, who had received vaccination from the above batch of Cervarix, the Department of Health has issued a quarantine notification.
As a further precautionary measure, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals sa is now undertaking a voluntary recall of the above batch of Cervarix pending further investigation.
Please quarantine any remaining stocks of this batch. Movianto UK Ltd will contact customers directly regarding stock and the details of the product to be collected. Movianto can be contacted by email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The benefit risk assessment for the vaccine remains unchanged; there is currently no proven link between vaccination and the event and the HPV vaccination programme will continue.
No other batches are affected by this recall. Further stocks of vaccine from different batches can be ordered in the usual way.
