Girls in school years 12 and 13 were due to be given the Cervarix human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination at Hautlieu School yesterday and Highlands College today.
But Health officials cancelled the plan after receiving news of Natalie Morton, who died shortly after she received her HPV vaccine at a school in Coventry on Monday.
It has also been discovered that out of 622 doses of the vaccine given to schoolgirls in the Island since 21 September, 424 have been given the same batch of vaccine that the dead teenager received.
Jersey’s Medical Officer of Health, Dr Rosemary Geller, said that the authorities had not seen any severe or potentially life-threatening reactions from the girls who had received the affected batch of vaccine.
A preliminary post mortem on the teenager has revealed a serious underlying medical condition that was more likely to have caused her death. More tests are being carried out to establish exactly why the teenager died.
