Over a thousand girls harmed by government mandated HPV vaccine in the UK??

-C. Paula de los Angeles

This unsupported article claims that over 1,000 girls in the UK have experienced negative side effects to the government mandated HPV vaccine, Cervarix, including epilepsy and convulsions. The British government initiated the program to vaccinate all secondary school girls in the fall of 2008, and plan to have all girls under the age of 18 vaccinated by 2011. So far, 700,000 have received the vaccination.

Issues: HPV vaccine has been proven to be effective for secondary school children in the US with minimal side effects. Article does not give any comparative results. Sensationalist article?
