Gardasil Continues to Kill and Maim

The Gardasil vaccine that is supposed to protect women from cervical cancer continues to ratchet up the deaths among young women. Judicial Watch, the watchdog organization released a special report in 2008 detailing almost 9,000 adverse events following reception of the vaccine including 18 deaths between 2006 and 2008. Other serious responses include Grand Mal seizures, coma, paralysis, outbreaks of warts, auto-immune diseases, etc. The Judicial Watch report outlines problems with the FDA procedures including the fact that Merck used an aluminum-based placebo in the trial that may have tainted the results.Spain removed Gardasil from the market in 2009 after two girls were hospitalized with serious reactions within hours of receiving the shot. Unfortunately, the suspension was related only to the involved batch of vaccine.In 2010 India suspended its program after 4 girls in a group of only 120 died following reception of the vaccine.Even a doctor who helped get the vaccine approved, Diane Harper, has criticized Merck’s aggressive program to administer it to children as young as eleven. In the same article, another doctor, Scott Rahner married to a physician, told CBS what happened to his daughter after she received the vaccine. “My daughter went from a varsity lacrosse player at Choate to a chronically ill, steroid-dependent patient with autoimmune myofasciitis. I’ve had to ask myself why I let my eldest of three daughters get an unproven vaccine against a few strains of a nonlethal virus that can be dealt with in more effective ways.”This is the story of big pharma these days. Vaccines like Gardasil are rushed to market with FDA approval, often gained through the intervention of those connected to pharmaceutical firms. Gardasil continues to result in serious complications including death. Since its approval 53 deaths have occurred following Gardasil vaccination. In some cases the CDC downplays the deaths as coincidence or unconfirmed because the reporting entity (sometimes Merck) sends in reports that don’t contain enough information to follow up. Clearly, however, death and serious reaction is the result for some recipients. That two U.S. governors tried to make this vaccine mandatory for all teenage girls is chilling. Just ask the mothers of girls who died or were seriously injured after receiving Gardasil.Think about it. If Ford had the same record with its cars, wouldn’t we see a massive recall?For more information visit the National Vaccination Information Center
