[SaneVax: Japan discovered adverse events being reported after HPV administration at more than twice the rate of two other newly approved vaccines and immediately began to investigate the problem. Similar serious adverse events are being reported worldwide after HPV vaccine administration. Why are more countries not following Japan’s lead?
Whether these vaccines will actually have any effect on cervical cancer rates will not be determined for decades because the disease takes so long to develop. The HPV vaccine experiment is being conducted on the theory that eliminating one of the risk factors for cervical cancer could prevent the disease from developing in the future. An already proven safe and effective method of controlling cervical cancer already exists. Because of this fact alone NO RISK associated with HPV vaccines are acceptable. The precautionary principle must apply worldwide.]
Australia must also caution on Gardasil
By Dr. Renata Klein and Helen Lobato
On June 14, the Japanese Health Ministry issued a nationwide notice that the so-called ‘cervical cancer’ vaccinations should not be recommended for girls aged 12 to 16. This precautionary move followed reports of 1,968 cases of possible adverse effects including body pain, numbness and paralysis.
The Japanese government’s subsidy program of either Gardasil or Cervarix, the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccines, which are aimed at reducing cervical cancer, began in 2010 with an estimated 3.28 million girls having now received the vaccinations. A special task force examined 43 cases of widespread pain after HPV vaccinations and concluded that given the timing of symptoms they could not rule out a connection between the adverse events and HPV vaccines. Japanese girls can still receive the vaccination for free, but medical institutions must inform them that the Ministry does not recommend it.
In April 2007, Australia introduced the Gardasil vaccine to Australian girls aged 12-16 years. This was immediately followed by young women becoming ill with serious side effects. To date, Australia’s database of adverse event notifications (DAEN) has recorded over 1991 suspected side effects following the cervical cancer vaccination. In the U.S. the total number of adverse effects stands now at 30,000, with 138 deaths and 5977 girls and young women whose health never recovered. Due to the lack of mandatory reporting, only between 1 per cent and 10 per cent of adverse reactions are ever recorded, so unfortunately we are really looking at much higher figures.
The list of adverse effects following Gardasil is extensive with many of the side effects serious and long-lasting. They include seizures, anaphylaxis, paralysis, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), facial palsy, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, chronic fatigue syndrome, pancreatitis, short-term memory loss, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune disorders, and Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
