Gardasil, the controversial and deadly HPV vaccine made global headline news this week – at it has done for many weeks especially in the past year.
From Emily Tarsell, whose daughter Christina Richelle Tarsell died post-vaccination from Gardasil:
Katie Couric had the courage to address the topic of the controversy regarding the HPV vaccine, Gardasil. Persons who had adverse events or negative feedback about the vaccine were invited as well as the usual pro-vaccine folks. The former included Norma Erickson from SaneVax, Rosemary Mathis and her daughter Lauren, Dr. Diane Harper and myself. It will all depend on how things were edited, but I think Katie is really supportive of increasing awareness about the downside. I hope you will watch and comment to show that there are lots of us out here who want to heard and appreciate the opportunity.

Cancer Vaccine Scare Sparks Call For Calm

There are concerns in France over the Gardasil injection to prevent cervical cancer – as a top medical expert appealed for calm.
In Britain, where it is offered to all girls between the ages of 12 and 13, the NHS estimates the programme saves 400 lives per year.
The chairman of the national committee overseeing vaccinations in France said there was no evidence to link the vaccine, administered against the human papilloma virus (HPV), to serious auto-immune conditions like multiple sclerosis.
Daniel Floret spoke after an 18-year-old woman filed a criminal complaint against Gardasil’s French distributor, Sanofi Pasteur MSD.
Her father Jean-Jacques, 57, said: “I was consumed by rage. For something like that to happen to a child in good health – it has ruined our lives.”
Her legal case seeks to establish the liability of both Sanofi and France’s medicines safety agency (ANSM), arguing the latter body failed in its statutory duty of care when it authorised the vaccine.
She was vaccinated with Gardasil, aged 15, at the end of 2010 and claims within two months she developed symptoms including vertigo, vomiting, temporary loss of sight and the use of her legs, and facial paralysis.
She attended a news conference in Bordeaux, where she claimed she was barely able to see or hear.
