HPV Vaccine Questioned Internationally

Child Heath Safety

UK health officials have wrongly assumed the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine can prevent 70 per cent of cases of cervical cancer but press reports show “German experts said the assumptions simply did not stand up to scrutiny, and that women remained at risk”: Cervical cancer jabs cast into doubt after experts question effectiveness 10th May 2009. Experts Cast Doubt on Claim for ‘Wonder’ Cancer Jabs Sunday Express 31 May 2009.

The HPV vaccine can have serious adverse effects with high levels of reported adverse reactions.  Death and debilitating illness have been claimed but officials do not acknowledge an association.

The UK’s New Labour Government has been aggressively pursuing the HPV vaccine programme in schools out of sight of parental control, with consent forms reportedly having no decline option and anecdotal reports of young girls being cross-examined in school corridors by health officials on parental consent issues. British Health Minister Dawn Primarolo is closely associated with the pursuit of the policy.

Germany’s Robert Koch Institute, which makes recommendations on the public funding of vaccines, is reviewing its programme after 13 experts called for a reassessment of its HPV vaccination programme and an end to “misleading information” about the effectiveness of the jab.  A spokeswoman said: “Because of the public discussion and some new reports and new statements from the 13 professors, the committee will publish a statement within the next few weeks.”

The Sunday Express reports Professor Martina Doren, of the Charitie Hospital in Berlin:

What concerns us is that the two manufacturers of the vaccine aren’t always using facts. They claim that a lot of high-risk strains of cancer-causing virus are protected against but equally there are others that are not. If protection is not more than 20 per cent then that is an awful lot of money to be spending, particularly as the vaccines have quite serious side-effects.”

A spokesman for GlaxoSmithKline, which makes Cervarix, was unable to provide figures on cases of pre-cancerous cells in women who have taken the vaccine, compared with those who have not.

Scottish Conservative health spokeswoman Mary Scanlon said: “Given this new research, it is now incumbent on the Scottish Government and the chief medical officer to review the vaccination programme to ensure that it lives up to the expectations of preventing cervical cancer.”

The HPV vaccine programme is based on recommendations of the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation. This highlights questions over the competence of the UK’s JCVI to make recommendations on UK vaccination programmes and the competence of medical professionals in general to express opinions on scientific matters.

The JCVI has a documented history of recklessness over vaccination policy and a needle-happy reputation along with concerns about financial and other conflicts of interest: Secret British MMR Vaccine Files Forced Open By Legal Action but from April 1 this year has been given in unfettered control of UK Government vaccination policy for England: UK Government Hands Drug Industry Control of Childhood Vaccination.  And as the British Medical Journal confirms Doctors are not scientists: Doctors are not scientists — Smith 328 (7454): BMJ.

If the vaccine is not effective, then its adverse effects cannot be justified but in the UK we see no official comment on the vaccine’s risk profile.  This highlights how public safety issues fail to be addressed as a result of  what some claim is a quasi-religious belief created by the drug industry in the importance of vaccines and the fear medical professionals have of making public criticisms on safety grounds.

The push for mass vaccination is driven by the commercial interest of the drug industry in moving to new business models.  Financial markets have known for 20 years and more the pharmaceutical industry’s blockbuster patented drugs business model would eventually fail.

The Bill Gates’ Microsoft type business model is one of the emerging replacements – almost everyone has Windows software on their PC – almost everyone will be vax’ed.  Gates quickly became a multi-billionaire.  With vastly more people to vaccinate than computers requiring software the lure of money for the pharmaceutical industry is substantial.

Alongside the expansion of vaccination programmes the childhood prevalence of lifetime conditions like asthma, allergies, autism, diabetes and others requiring further medications have increased substantially.
