Merck admits the vaccine Gardasil, can cause faints and seizures

Due to the high volume of reports of young girls fainting and have ‘non epileptic’ seizures after the Gardasil vaccine, Merck have conceded to include these side effects to their packaging and labelling as from 9th June 2009.

Information Pertaining to Labelling Revision for Gardasil

“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.”

This minor change has taken the drug giants three whole years to put into place, although fainting was included in the small print in 2007. Merck have stated that these seizures are not epileptic in nature, however, even they have to admit that a faint followed by tonic-clonic movement and seizure like activity, which ever way they dress it up, is really saying in the broad sense, a child could have a ‘Grand Mal Seizure’ after having a Gardasil vaccination. This is especially important as many girls have gone on to be diagnosed as epileptic after having Gardasil vaccines. Girls like Katherine Kimzey, a 14-year-old girl who experienced headaches, fainting, and stiff joints after receiving the second shot of her three-dose Gardasil vaccine battery. A few weeks later, Katherine had a seizure and was eventually diagnosed with epilepsy. Katherine is one girl of many who has encourntered a serious adverse reaction after receiving Gardasil. I believe that Merck are becoming very worried indeed if they have suddenly decided to take the unusual step of altering labels and packaging. Are they running scared perhaps?

The Epilepsy Foundation seem to describe a Grand Mal Seizure, in the same way as Merck are now describing on their new labelling. So what causes a seizure, epileptic or otherwise? Many people are confused and do not understand the difference between the terms “seizure” and “epilepsy”. A person can have a single seizure without going on to develop Epilepsy. A seizure is simply caused by an abnormal electrical discharge in the brain. So what is causing seizures in the girls receiving the Gardasil vaccination?

Dr Andrew Moulden feels he knows and gives a very comprehensive explanation in his three DVD’s as Sandra Chevalier-Batik explains in her article Can Dr Andrew Moulden Change CDC Childhood Immunisation Policy She explains that Dr. Moulden says the shots cause our body´s own immune systems to hyper-react as large white blood cells naturally rush to attack the foreign particles injected into our bloodstream. Well that does make sense as vaccines have been linked to seizures as far back as 1950.

Vaccines and adverse reactions to vaccines have been linked to seizures for years. One of the earliest professionals to spot a connection was a Prof Gordon Stewart. Professor Stewart first spoke of his concerns in 1950 His main work was surrounding the Whooping Cough and DPT vaccine. Over the years he has written letter after letter raising concerns to the Department of Health and the Government. Most of his concerns were ignored but they were discussed at meetings involving the Joint Sub Committee on Adverse Reactions to Vaccination and Immunisation. Professor Gordon Stewart’s views make him unconventional among medical men but his opinions and advice are of great importance to the parents of children who are candidates for whooping cough vaccine. Vaccination to Professor Stewart spells one word and that is ‘danger’. Many doctors and professionals agree with him and have been writing letters expressing their concerns about vaccines and patients having seizures for many years.

Here are just a few of the long list of professionals raising concerns:-

To read these and many many more the informative website Whale to on Vaccines has details of them all.

With all this evidence pointing to the fact that vaccines do indeed induce seizures, in some children, is it any wonder that Merck have become worried? They are not the only ones.

Dr. Andrew Moulden returns to KRFC FM on June 15 to Discuss Vaccination-Induced Brain Damage.

This will be Dr. Moulden´s second interview on KRFC FM. During the first on June 1, he explained how and why all vaccines cause neurological damage. Thousands of people listened to the interview since news of the program spread throughout the Autism and Gardasil communities. One of the most stunning comments that Dr. Moulden issued is that everyone has been “vaccine damaged” in one form or another. He believes that the high incidences of cancers, elderly neurological problems, immune disorders and other diseases are due to processes that have already been put into place after an inoculation. Repeated vaccinations only speed along the processes by which vaccine induced damage – which, according to Dr. Moulden are “cumulative, summative and additive,” leading to a myriad of pathological problems that are now pervasive to society.

Based on Dr. Moulden´s theory the burden of responsibility to prove vaccine damage will be taken out of the hands of the so-called “isolated pockets” of children and their parent´s into a larger realm of brain injury and disease that has affected millions of vaccinated people worldwide. This is an important point since the U.S. and other countries including the U.K., are currently considering mandating compulsory vaccination laws enforced by later on this year.

On Monday, July 6, Toni Blake J.D., M.A., who jointly owns and operates SBS Defenese.com with 2nd Chair Services will be interviewed on behalf parents who have been falsely accused of Shaken Baby Syndrome due to pre-existing neurological conditions that may have occurred post-vaccination.This is another aspect of vaccine injury involving the innocent families of brain-damaged infants that is rarely explored, although professionals have tried in the past to raise their concerns and have been ignored.

Lisa Blakemore-Brown, Charles Pragnell, Clifford Miller, Harold Buttram, Michael Innis, Viera Scheibner PhD are just a few of the professionals that have become increasingly concerned about the rising number of parents falsely accused of child abuse when their child becomes vaccine damaged.

Ms. Blake is a Juris Doctorate, has a Masters in Cognitive Social Psychology and is an Associate Professor of Psychology with an extensive research background in jury decision-making and cognitivepsychology in the courtroom. She is the author of and has published numerous books and articles. The Chicago Union Tribune, DISCOVER Magazine, Washington University Law Review, and American Association of Physicians and Surgeons have covered Ms. Blake´s research. She has been a guest lecturer for law schools, bar associations and medical conventions. Some of Ms. Blake´s high profile cases have appeared on Court TV, Dateline, 20/20, as well as in other international media outlets and television shows.

With all this going on is it any wonder the drug companies are beginning to get a little nervous? I.C.A.P is another organisation that has also been working very hard behind the scenes, raising awareness to the problems associated with both Gardasil and the Cervarix vaccine. I.C.A.P or the International Coalition of Advocates for the People, began as a group of seven women in four countries who decided to join forces to promote change.

Serious Concerns regarding the safety and efficacy of the HPV Vaccines

Dear friends, associates and all other esteemed individuals,

I am part of an international group from the United States, United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The documents which are attached represent our three countries. These documents have gone to 13 scientists from the Robert Koch Institute, Health Minister of Germany, as well as to the Commissioners of STIKO. We felt it was important to highlight the serious problems which are occurring all over the world (Australia, New Zealand also have problems) and to bring to the attention of the fact, that in the United States and Europe, there have been deaths and in all these cases the girls had been given their vaccinations. The United Kingdom has been fortunate so far, to the best of our knowledge, not to have any deaths reported but there have been several cases of paralysis which are identified in the UK Report.

We intend to prove that the serious health concerns that are becoming evident due to Gardasil and Cervarix around the world are valid.You will see that the studies themselves will prove the lack of efficacy and the increased risks to the health of our young people Also entered into this report are communications with the lead researcher for both Gardasil and Cervarix. Included are reports of young girls and women who have had serious adverse effects and deaths with unknown etiology from the United States and Europe. Attached is a video of Karen Maynor who lost her daughter after receiving the Gardasil vaccination.This mother is trying to come to terms with the fact that the post mortem determination is unknown.

We also want you to know that an inquiry was done by the researchers in the United States as to the overall health and activity level of the affected young people pre-vaccination. The results of the inquiry and investigation that ensued are startling. It has been determined that the young people most likely to be affected are very active, athletic and high achievers or have a serious weight problem. A subset of the affected received the vaccination when they were at the pre-menstrual time of their cycle. What these three groups have in common is that estrogen, which we know protects the brain from stroke, is decreased leaving the brain more susceptible to damage of the capillaries and the neurotoxin Aluminum.

Thousands of young girls and women are experiencing severe adverse events and their quality of life is vastly diminished around the world from Gardasil and Cervarix HPV vaccines.

We do so hope you will read our submission and if you wish to ask any questions of the authors, email addresses have been provided.

Sincerely,

Cynthia Janak

It is early days for this organisation but already they have had nothing but praise. The group has had acknowledgement from the press and Governments and has been highly praised with some very positive comments, especially from some of the mothers of vaccine damaged children. Two of the members, myself and Freda Birrell were highlighted in an article in a Scottish Newspaper saying:-

“The International Coalition of Advocates for the People (ICAP) – a group raising concerns of the safety and efficacy of Cervarix and its rival, Gardasil, to health ministers and researchers worldwide – want a thorough investigation into the vaccine The organisation successfully lobbied the health minister and medical experts in Germany. Now the country’s Federal Joint Committee, which decides on the formula for the country’s social insurance system, has called for all recommendations on Cervarix and Gardasil to be revised and demanded a new report based on detailed evidence.

Campaigners are concerned about the long-term effectiveness and safety of the vaccine. Six families in England are taking legal action against the maker of Cervarix, GlaxoSmithKline, after serious side-effects they claim are linked to the vaccine.

Freda Birrell and Christina England from ICAP said: “We would welcome a decision by the Scottish and UK governments to put a hold on Cervarix and to carry out a similar thorough investigation as is now being carried out in Germany.”

Since this new revelation by Merck I.C.A.P have written further letters and reports to the 13 German Scientists.

Isn’t it time that both Merck and GSK took a step further than just changing labels and packaging which only the medical profession gets to see? It is a great gesture but surely these young girls deserve more than just the drugs companies protecting their own backs what about these same drug companies trying to protect the children themselves, that would be a far greater gesture.
