Young Girls in Sydney Fear HPV Shots

A study done at nine different schools in the Sydney metropolitan area published in the Medical Journal of Australia showed that many young girls had high levels of anxiety and fear when they’re offered Gardasil, a vaccine for HPV. “Sometimes this fear was so extreme it bordered on hysteria, with girls crying, screaming and fainting”, said lead researcher Rachel Skinner. “When this intense fear was witnessed by girls waiting to be vaccinated, the girls’ anxiety levels were heightened. Nurses had difficulty administering the vaccine to these girls, and this sometimes resulted in the girl not being vaccinated, despite their parents consenting to the vaccination”.

Skinner said they were surprised at the level of fear in the girls, but said it was mainly due to misunderstanding surrounding the vaccines. Very few parents discussed it with their daughters, teachers were not equipped to handle the questions, and nurses did not have time to educate them because they had too many vaccinations to complete. The girls, who were between 11 and 13 years old, were listening to rumors like they would be injected “with a bit of cancer” or that the vaccination would be given through the cervix which heightened their nervousness and fears.

Although 75% of 12 to 13 year-old girls have been vaccinated in Australia, one in four still remain without the vaccine.

Does anyone really believe this?  Maybe the girls are reacting in fear because of what they have read on the Internet….Oh, yes – ‘education’ equates to ‘hysteria’ what the hell was I thinking? This has been going on for hundreds of years… take out the uterus – put her on drugs and now shoot her up – and we wonder why women are so damaged?
