From the latest HPV vaccine statistics, Grace Filby predicts how many 12 year old girls in Ireland will be rushed to the hospital Emergency Room each year after their Gardasil shots. From 2010, up to 30,000 girls aged 12 in Ireland will be mass-vaccinated with Gardasil – the HPV4 cervical cancer vaccine. How many are likely to have severe reactions that result in a visit to an Irish hospital Emergency Room? This video shows the maths – nearly 1 in 1000 = 27 girls.
