A UK health official reported that it "was most unlikely that [Cervarix] was the cause of death" of a 14-year-old girl who was administered GlaxoSmithKline's human papillomavirus vaccine. Caron Grainger, joint director of public health for NHS Coventry, said that they are awaiting further findings, but "preliminary post-mortem examination results have revealed a serious underlying condition which was likely to have caused death."
A Department of Health spokesman said "the programme against cervical cancer continues." Following the death, schools and primary care trusts temporarily suspended the immunisation programme.
