What's going on with Gardasil?
 
 

A 14-year-old girl in the District of Columbia was vaccinated on July 11th and complained of severe pain immediately following the injection, fell off the examining table and experienced a 10 to 15 second fainting spell ending up in the emergency room with a headache and speech problems.
 
 
Reported Adverse Events
 
the reactions described below occurred after the first dose of GARDASIL.
 
On August 17th, 15 minutes after being vaccinated, a 14-year-old Pennsylvania girl passed out in the car on the way home.
 
A physician from Washington State reported that in one morning, three patients experienced syncopal episodes.
 
On August 8th another physician's office reported that two patients experienced syncopal episodes on the same day.
 
Although these reports did not detail what happened to the individuals experiencing these syncopal episodes, other reports did.
 
The 14-year-old DC girl mentioned earlier experienced a syncopal episode combined with amblyopia (poor vision in one eye), abnormal speech, vomiting, and headache.
 
Also experiencing vision problems, a 17-year-old New York girl reported feeling dizzy and her vision went "black for a few seconds" and she turned pale and lips turned purple and she also had fever and chills.
 
Similar to the DC girl, on July 18th immediately after being vaccinated, a 22-year-old Kentucky woman experienced slurred speech accompanied by pallor and shock.
 
On August 29th, two hours after being vaccinated, a 15-year-old New York girl who had a history of asthma and was on four asthma medications experienced difficulty swallowing prompting a visit to the emergency room.
 
One 11-year-old Florida girl fell from the examining table and two Washington girls fell - a 16-year-old girl fell and hit her head on a carpeted concrete surface and a 14-year-old girl fell down and broke her nose.
 
In California, a 13-year-old girl was walking down the hall after her vaccination, fell and had a 15-second tonic/clonic seizure. Tonic/clonic seizures are also known as "grand mal" seizures.
 
Reports state that two recently vaccinated 16-year-old girls - one from Illinois and the other from Mississippi - were diagnosed with Guillian-Barre Syndrome (GBS) following vaccination with GARDASIL.
 
GBS is a serious disorder in which the body's immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system. The first symptoms of this disorder include varying degrees of weakness or tingling sensations in the legs. In many instances, the weakness and abnormal sensations spread to the arms and upper body. These symptoms can increase in intensity until certain muscles cannot be used at all and, when severe, the patient is almost totally paralyzed. … Vaccinations can trigger onset of GBS.
 
FOR MORE !....................
 
Do we still want to make this mandatory by law to inject our children with this vaccine?
These are only one out of three shot reports.  Scary what the other two will do.....

 NEW RISKS:

Gardasil vaccine is Merck's first big drug development since the Vioxx disaster.
 
The basis for many Vioxx lawsuits is that Merck withheld information that clearly showed the dangers of the drug. The company's record does not inspire trust.
 
The Vioxx situation revealed a more treacherous problem existing within the FDA itself. FDA insiders exposed how the agency deliberately ignored abundant test information showing that Vioxx was dangerous to cardiac patients.
 
How does the HPV vaccine affect fertility? Birth defects? Risk of cancers? Breast milk?

Five subjects who got the Merck vaccine around the time of conception had babies with birth defects
 
HPV infection is often eliminated by the body's natural immune mechanisms. Abnormal Pap tests often return to normal on their own. Cervical cancer is on the decline as are cervical cancer deaths, but it still occurs in about 10,000 women a year with 3,700 dying. Pap tests are required whether or not you take the vaccine.
Condom use dramatically reduces chance of infection from all types of HP viruses, by as much as 70%. There is no specific anti-viral treatment for infection, but the majority of infections are cleared by the immune system anyway. Of women who contract HPV infection, 90% will clear the infection through the body's natural immune processes. The younger the patient the more rapidly they naturally clear infection.
 
Does the vaccine work?
Who studied the vaccine in humans?
It is a crucial part of full informed consent to let patients know that all human studies submitted to the FDA were done by or financed by the drug manufactures. It cannot be brushed aside that these studies have limited to no independent scientific review. In fact, it takes a formal Freedom Of Information Act request to obtain the exact study reports and statistical analyses that the drug manufacturer gave to the FDA.
 
The studies that the drug maker gave to the FDA did not tell if condom use was tracked; this is very important missing data, since condoms alone are responsible for a 70% reduction in all types of HPV.
 
What is the effect of the vaccine on cervical cancer?

 
Since HPV is found in connection with most cervical cancers, the theory was that a vaccine against HPV would prevent cervical cancer. However the vaccine studies couldn't demonstrate this, simply because there were no cases of cervical cancer in the vaccinated group or in the group that got dummy shots.
 
 So they used a substitute measure (a 'surrogate marker') for cancer. They compared abnormal pre-cancerous Pap results in people who were vaccinated versus not vaccinated.
U.S. statistics show there are 30 to 40 cervical cancer cases per year per one million women age 9-26, the ages the vaccine was tested on.
Gardasil's reduction of pre-cancers by 12.2% in the general population would mean that instead of 30 to 40 cases of cancer, there would only be 26 - 35 cancers. So it would take vaccination of a million girls to prevent cancer in 4 to 5 girls. About 37% die from cervical cancer, so that would prevent 1 to 2 deaths. So $360 million in vaccine would prevent 1 to 2 deaths.
However this is all conjecture. In the Merck studies the follow up was too short and the numbers too few to prove prevention of cervical cancer.
 
Is the HPV vaccine safe?
Can the HPV vaccine actually make infection worse?

The study showed an increase in pre-cancer related to the vaccine types in the people who already had these infections before they got the vaccine.

They have invented a vaccine that kills humans and breaks down the immune system.



A total of 102 subjects out of 21,464 total subjects (9- to 26-year-old girls and women and 9- to 15-year-old boys) who received both GARDASIL and placebo reported a serious adverse experience on Day 1-15 following any vaccination visit during the clinical trials for GARDASIL.

The most frequently reportedserious adverse experiences for GARDASIL compared to placebo and regardless of causality were: headache(0.03% GARDASIL vs. 0.02% Placebo),gastroenteritis(0.03% GARDASIL vs. 0.01% Placebo),appendicitis (0.02% GARDASIL vs. 0.01% Placebo),pelvic inflammatory disease (0.02% GARDASIL vs. 0.01% Placebo).One case of bronchospasm and 2 cases of asthma were reported as serious adverse experiences that occurred during Day 1-15 of any vaccination visit.

DeathsAcross the clinical studies, 17 deaths were reported in 21,464 male and female subjects. The events reported were consistent with events expected in healthy adolescent and adult populations. The mostcommon cause of death was motor vehicle accident (4 subjects who received GARDASIL and 3 placebo subjects), followed by overdose/suicide (1 subject who received GARDASIL and 2 subjects who receivedplacebo), and pulmonary embolus/deep vein thrombosis (1 subject who received GARDASIL and 1placebo subject). In addition, there were 2 cases of sepsis, 1 case of pancreatic cancer, and 1 case ofarrhythmia in the group that received GARDASIL, and 1 case of asphyxia in the placebo group. Systemic Autoimmune Disorders In the clinical studies, subjects were evaluated for new medical conditions that occurred over thecourse of up to 4 years of follow up. The number of subjects who received both GARDASIL and placeboand developed a new medical condition potentially indicative of a systemic immune disorder

Gardasil: The Argument Against
 
There is a new vaccine recently approved for the "prevention of cervical cancer" called Gardasil. This vaccine is administered as a three-dose series, costs about $120 per dose, and is being marketed for girls and women ages 9-26. So what, if anything, is wrong with this picture?
 
Just this: The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2006 there will only be 9,710 new cases of cervical cancer, and only 3,700 deaths. I am not disputing that these are horrible deaths, as are many other cancer deaths. But with a total female population of just over 147,000,000, that translates to only about one in 2,500,000 women dying of cervical cancer. At a cost of $360 dollars for the full 3-shot course of vaccine, that comes to about $900,000,000 to prevent one death. One. I'm sorry; no matter how horrible a death, it's not worth 9/10ths of a billion dollars to prevent just one.
Merck (the vaccine's manufacturer) of course uses different numbers, coming up with a much greater benefit by calcualting how many CIN2/3 (abnormal/precancerous paps) were prevented, according to the following statement in their package insert:
CIN 2/3 and AIS are the immediate and necessary precursors of squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the cervix, respectively. Their detection and removal has been shown to prevent cancer; thus, they serve as surrogate markers for prevention of cervical cancer.
Here's the fallacy: yes, every cervical cancer began with a CIN2 or 3, but not every CIN2/3 will go on to an invasive cervical cancer. And of those, only about a third of those patients (in aggregate) will go on to die. But the real catch-22 of the situation is that the women overwhelmingly more likely to die are those who never get a pap test.
Thus we have a huge paradox: those who come for cervical cancer screening, even relatively sporadically, are not going to die of it. The vast majority of cervical cancer deaths are in women who have never had a pap. Not ever. Even one lifetime pap reduces the already very small chance of dying of cervical cancer from tiny to ridiculously miniscule. Those who die are those who do not get screened (for whatever reason, be it financial, cultural, socioeconomic, or other access issues.)

HPV Vaccine Mandates Risky and Expensive

Vaccine Safety Group Finds Serious Reactions, High Costs
Vienna, Virginia - /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ - The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), the nation's leading vaccine safety and informed consent advocacy organization, is urging state legislatures to investigate the safety and cost of mandating Merck's HPV vaccine (GARDASIL) for all pre-adolescent girls before introducing legislation amending state vaccine laws. In an analysis of reports made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) since the CDC's July 2006 universal use recommendation for all young girls, NVIC found reports of loss of consciousness, seizures, joint pain and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. In a separate evaluation of costs for young girls being vaccinated in private pediatrician offices, NVIC discovered that parents living in the Washington, D.C. area will be paying between $500 and $900 to have their daughters receive three doses of GARDASIL.
"GARDASIL safety appears to have been studied in fewer than 2,000 girls aged 9 to 15 years and it is unclear how long they were followed up. [1] VAERS is now receiving reports of loss of consciousness, seizures, arthritis and other neurological problems in young girls who have received the shot," said NVIC President Barbara Loe Fisher. "At the same time, parents who take their daughters to private pediatricians are going to be shocked to find that they will be paying two to three times the widely publicized $360 cost for the three-dose series. The cost is going to break the pocketbooks of parents and break the banks of both insurance companies and taxpayers, when the reality is that almost all cases of HPV-associated cervical cancer can be prevented with annual pap screening of girls who are sexually active."
Between July 2006 and January 2007, there have been 82 reports of adverse events filed with VAERS following receipt of GARDASIL by girls and boys ranging in age from 11 to 27 years. Reaction reports have come from 21 states, including Virginia and the District of Columbia. All but three of the reports were for adverse events which occurred within one week of vaccination and more than 60 percent occurred within 24 hours of vaccination.
"The most frequent serious health events after GARDASIL shots are neurological symptoms," said NVIC Health Policy Analyst Vicky Debold, RN, Ph.D. "These young girls are experiencing severe headaches, dizziness, temporary loss of vision, slurred speech, fainting, involuntary contraction of limbs (seizures), muscle weakness, tingling and numbness in the hands and feet and joint pain. Some of the girls have lost consciousness during what appears to be seizures." Debold added "The manufacturer product insert should include mention of syncopal episodes, seizures and Guillain-Barre Syndrome so doctors and parents are aware these vaccine adverse responses have been associated with the vaccine."
VAERS reports also indicate the doctors are administering GARDASIL to girls and women at the same with Tdap, DT, meningococcal (Menactra), hepatitis A, and other vaccines, even though the Merck product insert states that, with the exception of hepatitis B vaccine, "Co-administration of GARDASIL with other vaccines has not been studied."[2] There is no publicly available information about how many of the 9 to 15 year old girls in Merck's pre-licensure clinical trials received GARDASIL simultaneously with hepatitis B vaccine.
Although approximately half of all families in the U.S. select a pediatrician in private practice to provide their children routine care, including vaccinations, children can receive government subsidized reduced cost or free vaccinations in public health clinics through the Vaccines for Children program if they cannot afford to pay for vaccinations administered by private pediatricians. NVIC's survey of four private pediatric practices in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. found that parents could be charged anywhere from $525 to $930 for three GARDASIL shots.

Is the vaccination worth the risks

That is currently another problem we are looking at/facing.  They want to mandate this law to enforce the vaccination.

This vaccination has not been on the market long enough to establish ALL the possible effects this vaccination will or will not prove to show.

But as far as I am aware, one has not been on the market that has killed children until now.

But this one is coming straight out of market of only few years and have reported legitimate statitics
on the fact it IS killing children. Why should a vaccine be made a "LAW" to recieve?  It is our choice to give our children the vaccine.
Not the laws choice.  They are working around a way for our opt out decision.  Only making it religious and physological, Please......

Using tools for research is a powerful thing.
