How many young girls have to suffer before the FDA pulls the vaccine Gardasil off the market? Judicial Watch has been leading the charge against Gardasil, uncovering more than 11,000 adverse reaction reports from the FDA related to the vaccine. This week, Gardasil was back in the news, this time for a link to Guillain-Barre syndrome.

According to WebMD:

Girls and women who receive the Gardasil vaccine to prevent cervical cancer may be at increased risk of a rare but serious disorder of the nervous system in the first few weeks after getting their shots, researchers report.

Overall, the vaccine does not raise the odds of developing Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), a disorder of the peripheral nervous system, says Nizar Souayah, MD, of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark.

“But there is clear evidence from our database of an increased incidence of Guillain-Barre syndrome in the first six weeks, especially the first two weeks, after vaccination,” he tells WebMD.

The link to Guillain-Barre is serious, for sure. We’ve been attacked for highlighting the dangers, but now we have scientific confirmation of our concerns. But Guillain-Barre is just one of the many dangerous side effects associated with this vaccine. Here’s just a small sampling of what we’ve found through our investigation. (You can read the adverse event reports for yourself by clicking here):

  • Information has been received…concerning a 20 year old female with no medical history reported, who on 01-APR-2008 was vaccinated with a dose of Gardasil….The patient died four days after…patient sought unspecified medical attention. An autopsy was performed which ruled out suicide and anything suspicious. The cause of death is currently unknown. VAERS ID: 310262-1 (D)
  • Information has been received…concerning a 23-year-old female…who on 31-JAN-2008 was vaccinated with her 1st dose of Gardasil…the patient experienced anaphylactic shock 2 minutes after vaccination characterized by a brief loss of consciousness…respiratory arrest, eyes rolled upwards, blurred vision and greyish skin tone…Anaphylactic shock was considered to be immediately life-threatening. VAERS ID: 304739-1 (S)
  • Cold sweat, Fall, Foaming at mouth, Grand mal convulsion, Immediate post-injection reaction….Pt [patient, 14-year-old female] received vaccine, took 6 steps, fell to the ground unconscious and had a 60 sec grand mal seizure then regained consciousness. [Blood pressure] after seizure 60/40 pale clammy skin. [Patient] had bit her tongue and had foam around her mouth. VAERS ID: 305259-1 (S)
  • Information has been received from a physician concerning a female patient who on an unknown date was vaccinated with a dose of Gardasil. Subsequently, the patient experienced a coma and is now paralyzed. At the time of this report, the patient’s outcome was unknown. VAERS ID: 303188-1

Overall, there have been as many as 20 deaths associated with Gardasil, 140 “serious” reports (27 deemed life threatening), and 10 spontaneous abortions in its short history. As you may recall, the Clinton FDA rushed Gardasil to the market without conducting a thorough analysis of its safety and effectiveness. And now young girls are paying the price. By the way, Judicial Watch published a report on its FDA findings. You can find it by clicking here.

We continue to monitor this issue (and have ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation to get more information to help protect the public).

Until next week…
