Holy Hormones Journal: My late father who was a pharmaceutical packing salesman for a manufacturing plant in New Jersey – sat me down one day when I was a teenager and sadly said: “Never believe everything that is being advertised.” I am sure he heard of his fair share of pharma inside stories over two and three martini lunches – considered to be normal at the time. In fact as a side note – my very first job as a teen was working on the packing line… packing up birth control pills. Oh, the synchronicity in life.
The reason that I mention this – is because the article mentions concern over the decline in vaccine uptake – when in fact, mothers in Ireland have been mobilizing for years over the dangers of the vaccine – because so many girls have been severely injured. They formed a group called REGRET:
R.E.G.R.E.T. Support Group was set up by parents of Irish teenage girls who have developed serious health problems after entering secondary school. These parents are certain that the HPV vaccine (Gardasil) is the cause of their daughters’ otherwise unexplained illness.
The primary goal of the parents in the group is to get help for their daughters who, like many girls around the world, have experienced “Reactions and Effects of Gardasil Resulting in Extreme Trauma” (R.E.G.R.E.T). Many are not receiving effective medical treatment and cannot attend school regularly due to the debilitating health conditions they still suffer from.
Never believe everything that is being advertised. Including the article below.
The amount of young girls getting the HPV vaccine has dropped significantly
The Journal – Ireland
October 7, 2016
THE NUMBER OF young pupils getting the HPV vaccine has decreased by over 10% in the past 12 months, the HSE has said.
The uptake rate for the vaccine stood at approximately 87% back in 2015.
However, the rate of young girls getting the immunisation has dropped to 70%, which is 10% under what the HSE described as the target uptake.
Dr Brenda Corcoran from the HSE’s National Immunisation Office described what is happening at the moment.
She told the Medical Independent: “The target uptake is 80%. The most recent published information is for 2014/2015 and the uptake was 87% and some parts of the country actually achieved over 90%, so there was kind of a universal acceptance of the vaccine. That figure was the highest recorded.
“The preliminary figures we have for 2015/2016 show that the uptake is about 70%. It has reduced in some areas more than others.
“So that is a huge concern to us, but also to cancer specialists who really are very, very fearful that we won’t see the impact of the vaccine programme and women will be left at risk.”
The vaccines are available to prevent the human papillomavirus (HPV) types that cause most cervical cancers as well as some cancers of the anus.
