Gardasil Reactions

Add this to my list of why it’s nice not to have girls (except that if i had girls this is one vax i would be opting out of for sure!)

Gardasil reactions must be taken seriously

For immediate release – May 22nd 2007

The Australian Vaccination Network (AVN), a national parent and
health-professional run lobby group urges the federal government to
stop
ignoring reactions suffered by schoolgirls across Australia. “Hysteria
is
nothing more than an excuse which would never be used if we were
talking
about boys being vaccinated. Hysteria does not cause paralysis nor can
it
cause someone to lose consciousness for over 2 hours.” says Meryl
Dorey,
National President of the AVN. “In fact, looking at the information
from
the vaccine manufacturer as well as the reactions that have been
reported
in the US, we find the following facts:

FACT: Out of the 385 individual Gardasil adverse event reports made to
VAERS (the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Service), two-thirds
required
additional medical care .

FACT: The most common reactions reported were syncopal
(collapse/fainting)
episodes that can be accompanied by seizure activity, as well as
symptoms
of tingling, numbness and loss of sensation in the fingers and limbs –
exactly the sorts of reactions experienced by the girls in Victoria,
and
all evidence of neurological complications.

FACT: In the original study of 21,000 vaccinees, there were 102 serious
reactions reported with 17 deaths. Rather then the perfectly safe
vaccine
we are told Gardasil is, nearly 90% of those in this study suffered an
adverse reaction – a very high number indeed!

FACT: There are more than 15 types of HPV associated with cervical
cancer
but Gardasil only contains two of them – types 16 and 18. Perhaps this
is
why the government says that even with 100% vaccination, annual pap
smears
will still be needed.

FACT: Rather then being well tested as Minister Abbott said, this
vaccine
was only tested on 1,200 girls in the age group which is now receiving
these shots. This study which was conducted by the vaccine
manufacturer,
only followed these girls for a very short time, and used a toxic
adjuvant
– aluminium hydroxide – as a placebo. By comparing one toxic substance
to
another, the study invalidates any evidence of safety.

FACT: Several of the girls who participated in the vaccine study
developed
lesions and genital warts. One 22 year old developed an HPV infection
despite high levels of antibodies to all 4 strains of HPV contained in
the
vaccine.

“The government has a duty of care to ensure that all vaccines are safe
and
effective before they are used on our children. Gardasil is an
experimental
vaccine whose safety and effectiveness is under question. We here at
the
AVN have had more reaction reports to this vaccine in the short time
it’s
been used here then we’ve had to any other shot. Please Mr Health
Minister,
do not ignore these girls. They deserve so much better!”
