This week has shown that a large number of reports stating that Gardasil is proving unsafe. News stations around the world have reported that Gardasil the HPV vaccine has been found to cause adverse reactions. The adverse reactions range from mild, such as headaches, nausea and fainting, to the more severe such as seizures, blood clots, Guillian Barre Syndrome and even death. This information has come to light since the publication of the
JAMA papers on the 19th August 2009, showing the results of the VAERS Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. The Gardasil data published was collected from June 1, 2006 through December 31, 2008.
Merck has only recently changed packaging showing acknowledgement that this vaccine causes fainting and seizures in some children.
“On June 9, 2009, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a revised label for Gardasil, a vaccine to protect against cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV) types 16 and 18 and genital warts caused by HPV types 6 and 11. In the new label, information pertaining to syncope (fainting) is now also included in the Warnings and Precautions section, and this section has new information noting that individuals who faint sometimes have tonic-clonic (jerking) movements and seizure-like activity. The addition of syncope to the Warnings and Precautions section emphasizes that healthcare providers and consumers should be alert that fainting may occur following vaccination with Gardasil, sometimes resulting in falling and injuries. To prevent falls and injuries all vaccine recipients should remain seated or lying down and be closely observed for 15 minutes following vaccination.”
Cynthia Janak a USA journalist has been writing and proving this vaccine is unsafe for the last few years. Her website Only the Truth gives tribute to the many girls who have lost their life after taking Gardasil shots. This site points out and lists the adverse reactions, showing pictures of beautiful young woman now no longer with us, other pages have stories of girls suffering every day from the adverse reactions to this vaccine. There is up to date news and views on Gardasil.
News stories have been hitting America for three years about the dangers of this vaccine. Stories like this one 2007 Did Gardasil Vaccine Cause a 12-yr-old Girl’s Paralysis and Girl Dies after HPV Jab – CDC Blame Birth Control Pill
Merck says however, Merck Says FDA And CDC Reaffirm Safety Profile Of Gardasil – Update
“Based on the review of available information by FDA and CDC, Gardasil continues to be safe and effective, and its benefits continue to outweigh its risks.”
Confusing that because if Merck were so convinced that their vaccine was safe why have they recently changed the labelling?
Diane Harper who worked on the Gardasil trials has reservations. Harper told CNN she has concerns about the safety of the HPV vaccine for pre-adolescents, noting that a small number of girls have died or suffered neurological damage after receiving the shot.
However, despite the controversy surrounding this vaccine, with much information proving it to be unsafe, it appears not only is still being offered to teenage girls across the USA and the world today but is a mandatory vaccine for immigrants wanting to come into the USA. In a sickening story in a letter passed to me a grandmother who has been raising her grandchild and was trying to escape to the USA from domestic violence was refused entry because she refused after researching Gardasil. to let her grandchild have it. The letter also shows 140 immigration rights, women´s rights, public health, medical, and reproductive justice organizations including an attorney have joined a coalition in NYS.The letter to the CDC was written as the author felt the vaccine activists might want to know the names of political organizations opposing the US immigration regulation that requires immigrants receive the Gardasil shot.
So why is it that USA citizens in many states have the option to choose whether they or their children have the HPV vaccine but immigrants can not? In order to become a permanent, legal resident of the U.S, immigrants now must receive a vaccine that is not required of U.S. citizens. This is like saying these people are less important or more likely to be infected. This surely is wrong.
