Death reports after HPV vaccines have been filed at a rate of less than five per month since Gardasil and Cervarix were approved for use in the United States in 2006/07. The SaneVax team was shocked when the latest available update from the VAERS (vaccine adverse event reporting system) database revealed 34 death reports after HPV vaccines in a single month.
You can pretty much bet that any anomaly of this magnitude bears investigation. The SaneVax team decided to run a search for only the deaths reported after administration of HPV vaccines within the last month. 35 death reports show up (We assume one was prior to the close of the previous month’s stats). The other 34 are identical reports from “a nurse via a company sales representative.”
To run the same search, go to www.medalerts.org and choose the HPV vaccines (HPV2, HPV4 and HPVX), death and a lower appeared on VAERS date of Oct 2014 – to run the same search our team did. You might want to take a look and see what you think.
Several questions come immediately to mind, such as:
- Is Merck trying to muddy the VAERS water even more by stacking the death count?
- If so, why did they not include all 72 reports referred to in the 35 that were submitted to VAERS?
- Why are the reports submitted by a sales rep instead of the nurse who was referred to in all of the reports?
- Why does each report have a different submission date?
- The reports refer to a physician reporting at a vaccine conference “72 deaths after Gardasil administration via embolism/thrombosis events,” could this possibly be a legitimate report?
- Perhaps the FDA/CDC included all of these reports in a single month hoping someone like us would simply report the numbers and thereby be open to being discredited/ridiculed?
- Will the other 37 reports show up next month – or at a later date?
Whatever the answers to the questions above end up being, VAERS reports are what they are – despite the limitations of the system. SaneVax has built our reputation on reporting from only scientific, medical, or government documents so we will continue to report the statistics in VAERS as they are updated by health officials from the United States government.
The SaneVax team would strongly suggest viewing this particular increase in death reports after HPV vaccine administration with much caution. Feel free to raise questions of your own – investigate for yourself.

Any questions? Ask the FDA or the CDC!
Or, better yet – ask your congressional representatives and senators why there are no penalties for failure to comply with the ‘mandatory’ reporting of suspected adverse events (possible side-effects) after vaccine administration as required under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act!
