of teenage girls enduring debilitating illnesses after routine school 
cancer vaccination | 31 May 2015 | ...Emily Ryalls is one of the 
thousands of teenage girls who have endured debilitating illnesses 
following the routine immunisation. She is yet to recover and has no 
idea when her health will return to normal. Mrs Ryalls reported 
Emily's condition to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory 
Agency (MHRA). In the 10 years to April this year the agency received 
almost 22,000 "spontaneous suspected" adverse drug reaction (ADR) 
reports in 13 routine immunisation categories including flu, MMR, 
tetanus, diphtheria and polio, according to a Freedom of Information 
response released earlier this month. In the HPV category alone, ADRs 
numbered 8,228, of which 2,587 were classified as "serious" -- 
defined by several criteria, including whether it resulted in 
hospitalisation or was deemed life threatening. The MHRA said that 
the figures did not reflect the true amount of ADRs because of an 
"unknown and variable level of under-reporting".
