That this House notes that while the HPV vaccination is expected to help to reduce the incidence of cervical cancer in the future, and that the majority of girls have been vaccinated without any apparent adverse reactions, all medicines and medical interventions carry some elements of risk; further notes a number of girls have reported seriously disabling illness with strong temporal relationship to the HPV vaccination that includes symptoms listed on the Patient Information Leaflet which have proved to be long-lasting; and calls on the Government to support such girls in receiving timely medical investigation and treatment and with access to education.
