A schoolgirl has been left in a ‘waking coma’, too exhausted to open her eyes or speak, after having a cervical cancer vaccine.
Last October and again a month later, Lucy Hinks joined her classmates at school in Wigton in Cumbria to have the HPV jab Cervarix as part of a country-wide programme.
By Christmas, she had visited the doctor several times with flu-like symptoms, tiredness and joint pain.
After the third injection of the vaccine, in May this year, Lucy began to experience extreme exhaustion.
Her health has now deteriorated so badly that for the past seven weeks she has slept for up to 23 hours day.
Lucy is also unable to walk or even talk to her devastated family.
