My daughter Jessica recently asked me why she wasn’t vaccinated with the HPV vaccine (Gardasil). Jessi told me all her friends have received the vaccine. I told her that there were two major reasons that I felt were important enough to not let her get this vaccine. Number one (the most important one), this vaccine is injuring and killing healthy young females. Nearly one young woman has died per month due to this vaccine. This fact alone should cause Congress to act and the media to question its use. The number two reason I don’t believe this vaccine should be given is that most women (over 90%) infected with HPV will overcome the illness without any therapy due to natural immunity.
Gardasil is promoted by Big Pharma Cartel Merck to prevent two types of HPV that are associated with cervical cancer and two more types that cause 90% of genital warts. Gardasil was designed to protect against two strains of HPV that cause about 75% of cervical cancer and two more strains that cause 90% of genital warts. Gardasil does not treat cancer or genital warts. It is given in three injections over six months. The monetary cost of Gardasil is very high”approximately $400 for the series of three vaccines.
Much of the following information is taken from a wonderful article on the Gardasil vaccine which can be found here. This article should be read by every parent who is considering vaccinating their child against HPV.
Gardasil was approved by the FDA in 2006. Since that time, it has been responsible for 66 deaths and over 17,700 medical injuries to young girls. Six percent of the reported events (1,100) were serious enough to require emergency care. Remember, only about 10% of all adverse reactions are reported to the CDC.
Other adverse effects associated with Gardasil (from PDR) are Guillain-Barre syndrome, lupus, seizures, anaphylactic shock, chronic fatigue, paralysis, blood clots, brain inflammation, blurred vision, and blindness. Furthermore, the following events have been reported after vaccination from Gardasil: blood and lymphatic system disorders, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, idiopathic thrombotic purpura, lymphadenopathy, pulmonary embolis, pancreatitis, vomiting, asthenia, chills, death, fatigue, malaise, autoimmune diseases, bronchospasm, urticaria (hives), arthralgia, myalgia (muscle pains), and transverse myelitis (inflamed spinal cord).
I say enough said. Who would give that vaccine to their child?
Dr. Diane Harper, a top expert on HPV claimed that the recommendation to vaccinate all young girls, “…went too fast without any breaks. We don’t know yet what’s going to happen when millions of doses of the vaccine have been given and to put in place a process that says you must have this vaccine, it means you must be part of a bit public experiment. So we can’t do that until we have more data.”[i]
So, what do you do? Number one, educate yourself. If there are concerns, I suggest continuing to educate yourself. Remember, you can’t take a vaccine back after it is given.
