Victim of Post-Gardasil Syndrome: Camille from Quebec

Story as told by her mother, Elysabeth Gagnon

Post-Gardasil Syndrome

After much research and discussion, my daughter and I had both signed the required form to refuse the Gardasil vaccine currently being administered in Quebec. In order to assure there would be no problem, I also phoned the school the morning the first dose of Gardasil was to be offered and spoke to the school nurse to inform her that my daughter would not be receiving this vaccine. The nurse assured me there would be no problem.

On 28 September 2011, my daughter presented the signed vaccine waiver and informed the school nurse that she would not receive the HPV vaccine. The nurse then set aside 15 minutes to inform Camille about the benefits of the vaccine.

After the discussion, Camille repeated her decision to refuse the Gardasil injection. The nurse then handed her additional informational documents and told Camille that if she changed her opinion, she could always inform the other nurse.

Subsequently, Camille met with a second nurse, this one outraged that my daughter refused the vaccine. She had set aside 10 minutes of her time to try to convince Camille again. The only side effect she mentioned was headache. This nurse pointed out that Camille would be the only one in the school to refuse Gardasil. She told her the consequence of refusing meant she could get cancer and die, only because she was being stubborn. She continued on until Camille finally granted her consent.

At that point, the nurse told her not to show her health record to her mother in order to avoid any discussion on this at home.

My daughter was pressured until she agreed to be vaccinated. Her ‘consent’ was neither freely given, nor appropriately informed. Camille’s consent was obtained through intimidation. A 14-year old girl does not have the experience to deal with authority figures in the same manner as an adult.

In my opinion, the way Camille was treated was an abuse of power and a breach of my trust in school health authorities.

Without my consent, or knowledge, Camille received her first Gardasil injection at 3:45 pm on that day. By 4:00 pm she was on the bus to come home. She already had a stomach ache and a headache. She decided to try and rest during the 45 minute drive home. She lost consciousness. Students noticed and tried to wake her up, but when they did she acted confused. They informed the bus driver, who promptly stopped the bus and called an ambulance.

She was admitted to St-Jérômes Hospital barely 2 hours after her injection. She has no memory of how she got to the hospital other than she recalls waking up in the ambulance. The hospital staff said there was no link between her condition and the vaccine. They recommended consulting an allergist.

The future brought fever, rash, fainting, fatigue, weakness, headaches, stomach pains and more consultations. She is now being treated for a urinary infection, abscesses in her mouth and oral candidose.

No link?

I lodged a formal complaint to the Order of Nurses of Québec. Teenage girls must be informed and warned of all possible side effects – not be left in the dark.

Today, nearly two months after the first shot of Gardasil, my daughter still has headaches that will not go away. Day after day she has to deal with them. She has no more appetite and has lost weight. This girl, who has been to an ophthalmologist every year since she was two years old and exhibited perfect vision, has now been told she will have to wear glasses because of her deteriorating vision.

For 11 years her vision was perfect, no longer – no link?

The doctor from the Canadian Health Agency told us there was no link between her symptoms and Gardasil. Furthermore, she said that Camille was sick and had all of those symptoms prior to vaccination. How can she say that?

I swear to God, my daughter’s health was in perfect condition BEFORE she got this shot.


  1. I wonder… did this mother come forward after hearing Jeff Allan’s radio interview with Leslie Botha? I lose a lot of sleep at night worrying about how many other cases like this there are in Canada and no one except the parents and Health Canada knows about it. As you know, Norma, getting information out of Health Canada is next to impossible, but the truth will come out.

  2. Kristine J. says:

    It has been one year ago today that my daughter received her one and only Gardasil shot, which we were pushed into, and she has been sick every day since. Horrible headaches, dizziness, fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, vision loss, and the list goes ono and on. If only we could turn back the time to last year but with the knowledge I know posess that nurse would get a piece of my mind. My heart goes out to all of Gardasil’s victims.

  3. T McDonald says:

    I recently saw Dr. Garth Nicolson talk on YouTube, visited and then went to
    The links I provide have promising information.
    I am also a big fan of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride – GAPS ( and Elaine Gottschall – SCD (

    When my son got his DPTP at age 3 1/2, his personality drained out of him – along with his capacity to concentrate and follow instructions. Stunted growth, an incessantly stuffy nose and declining digestive health, etc. rounded out the picture. I am bloody disappointed in the medical profession, which I used to trust. Now, I read, I learn, I think things over.

  4. Please let me know if I can be of help to you. I am a Dr. of Natural Medicine in Canada who specializes in “clearing” allopathic vaccines of this nature on the basis of homeopathic law. My son was vaccine damaged with the MMR vaccine and he is thankfully fine today at 17 years of age, thank God. I’ve written a book called “The Path to Cure; The Whole Art of Healing” as a result. My husband, and fellow Clinician, is also writing a book for parents entitled, “The Vaccination Myth.” I admire your courage and calm blog post. I’m not sure that I would be as well “contained” as you are and I won’t even elucidate on what I’d like to do to that nurse that bullied your daughter. You can also check out my blog article on the HPV vaccine if you want to affirm my validity: We’ve had good success in clearing the ill effects of vaccines using homeopathic nosodes on the basis of the principle, Like Cures Like without causing an ounce of harm.

  5. I believe it should be the parent whom needs to inform the children about these along with a doctor or nurse not the school system.. I would fight for the right of the child…

    Teachers or school personel need to mind their own business which is teaching reading, writting and arithmatic.

  6. Barry P Beckett says:

    Dear Friend,
    I was very moved by your story, which I have heard in various forms before. It is well known to classical homeopaths and to practitioners of osteopathy in the cranial field that many diverse symptoms occur following vaccination. These are denied by allopathic doctors as unprovable because they do not fit into their flawed understanding of disease. Please, please contact an Osteopath who practices Biodynamic Cranial Osteopathy in your area (see below), and a Classical Homeopath to benefit your daughter. Here are two links that may help, Dr. James Jealous’s teaching organisation; physicians in Canada:, and homeopathy advice from the American Nate Schwartz, who lives in Berlin:, good luck, may your daughter become healthy and happy, Barry Beckett ,

  7. Dear Elysabeth,

    I write to ask you (and Camille) and Sanevax if you might consider allowing me to mention your daughter’s case in a campaign I am just setting up to take vaccines out of schools. In the UK, gillick competancy laws allow anyone 11 or over to consent to medical treatment without parental consent and even if a parent has said no. While this can be used in reverse (a child can say no if the parent has consented), I am concerned that coercion and bullying may occur in a school setting when vaccinations are done there (as happened to your daughter). The idea is to put vaccines back in the doctor’s office so that girls are not pressured into it and they can make choices with the benefit of parental guidance.

    Please can you let me know if I am allowed to mention what happened to your daughter. We intend to send letters to MP’s and school boards etc. I am aware you are not in the UK but am sure this kind of thing is happening all the time in different countries.

      I am so sorry for the delay.
      My answer is yes. If I am not to late ….
      If we can help please do not hesitate contacting me.

  8. NEIL GILLMORE says:

    No child under 16 years old or under should ever be allowed decide weather they should receive VACCINATIONS or not. What was it now 11 years old and over can decide for themselves? Oh they can can they ? I very strongly and totally Disagree with this, whoever made this rule needs to be sacked, fined and imprisoned And never be allowed to work in the same field ever again. A childs brain is not capable of making these kind of descisions thats why they need parents.

  9. Godofredo Arauzo says:

    The scientific efficacy of this vaccine will be determined just the years 2025-2030 because research has begun the decade of 2000. From its inception until the appearance of carcinoma of the cervix (CCU), takes on average 25 to 30 years; definitely not the HPV causes the (CCU); in the onset of this disease involve multiple risk factors, among them are suspected to HPV. yes it is proven that sex generates this condition: Mix in 130.000 nuns found no CCU.
    To accept that a bacteria or virus causes a disease inevitably have to fulfill the Koch’s Postulates:.
    1 – The agent must be present in every case of the disease and absent in the healthy.
    2 – The agent should not appear in other diseases.
    3 – The agent must be isolated in pure culture from lesions of the disease.
    4 – The agent has to cause the disease in an animal capable of being inoculated.
    5 – The agent must be isolated from new lesions in experimental animals.
    1. Principle: not found any physical HPV cervical carcinoma (CCU), has found only his DNA immunology, which can be interpreted as the virus is present or is a residual immunity. and immunological detection was not meet in all CCU;only 90% of CCU: does not fulfill this first principle;
    2. Principle: The agent also appears in the warts does not appear only in the CCU: not satisfy this principle;
    3. Principle: It have not been isolated cultivating from a growing CCU: Does not fulfill this principle
    4. Principle: The HPV inoculate a laboratory animal, produces the disease; as it have not been isolated from the CCU, it has not inoculated to laboratory animal; violates this principle and
    5. As it was not inoculated in laboratory animal because they was not found in a CCU, . also violated this principle.
    Consequently, HPV does not fulfill any principle of the Koch’s postulates; this postulates is accepted as dogma in the scientists physicia world to ensure that it is the causative agent of the CCU.
    Until March of this year, 95 girls had death; until 2009 had 20.000 adverse effects and more of one thausand disabled irreversible damage. The Vaccine Adverse Effects Reaction (VAERS) reports too that the vaccine produced abnormal Pap 376, anogenital warts 108, HPV infections 224, 41 cervical cancers, 21.634 adverse events and 95 death after vaccination. The VAERS say that is known only 1 to 10% of adverse effects and deaths from unlucky vaccine; therefore, have been 216.340 adverse effects and 950 death alone in the U.S. and all the damages listed add a zero.
    Dra. Harper, who helped develop the vaccine by Merck, refers that the vaccine was not investigated in children under 15 years and the vaccine given to children under 11 years is a big public experiment.
    The vaccine was approved for girls to not contaminated with HPV; Dr.Howenstinc say that if women infected with HPV is vaccinated, have the opportunity to acquire a 44.6% CCU
    Sane vax has discovered that the vaccine is contaminated with the DNA HPV and has raised its concerns to the president of the FDA Margaret Hamburg
    To introduce the vaccine are using the marketing of fear:
    The HPVs lives in wild and domestic animals, we pollute us from first day of birth, is found in the doorknobs, in towels, in the nails, on fomites, in gloves and specula of gynecologists. It is doubtful that sex is the only means of contamination
    The PVH live too in 400 nanometers more external of our skin; if he HPV live on our skin, our immune system produces cellular and humoral immunity or that our bodies are being vaccinated in a natural way; if the HPV live in our skin, by inference we can ensure that too they live too in the mucous membranes ..
    This vaccine is genetically modified, the vaccines known are original virus known and the vaccine is prepared to prevent infection only by the HPV 16 and 18
    The HPV is not distributed uniformly over the world. The HPV 18 has been found in Canada in only 3%, more common is HPV 31, in my country Peru there are no studies that established the predominant HPV types;
    This vaccine contains 225 mcg. Aluminum, a suspected cause Alzheimer’s and Polisorbatol 80 which is a powerful contraceptive; in experimental animals produces sterility; is carcinogenic and mutagenic, also contains sodium borate considered poison, not used in medicinal preparations.
    For the dangerous reasons from Peru, depth, Huancayo, I believe that this vaccine is a Fraud?, Robbery?, Swindle? , Rough joke?; it is not scientifically proven at the moment, its effectiveness, will be determinated just the years of 2025-2030.

    Thank you for sharing your heart-breaking story. It just strenthens my resolve to keep my children at home the day they do the in-school vaccinations! I hope your daughter is doing better… if not, I would also recommend trying an osteopath and/or naturopath for detox (if you haven’t already tried that venue).

  11. So sorry, can I ask, have you sued the school nurses for this.? In the UK, a child under 16 does not have the legal capacity to consent to something like this, especially under pressure. You can rip them apart for this. I chose not to have my kids injected with this which was only introduced in my area in 2008. I told the nurse that if she tried what the nurse did with your daughter, (before i’d read your story)…if she tried it or did it then i would take her to court for attempted murder. It worked…

    Let me know if you need more info, maybe your laws are different?

  12. Terrible to hear about this and I hope there is justice for those harmed by this vaccine. A new research article by Tomljenovic, Shaw and Spinosa shows a lot of problems with the Gardasil study design. (Current Pharmaceutical Design, Sep. 24- Epub ahead of print).
    So sorry to all the victims. Hopefully we will have reached a threshold of safety concerns and lawsuits that Merck has to withdraw. I just heard France has suspended all shots containing aluminum.

  13. My daughter’s health has been damaged by the gardasil vaccine. She has suffered from severe stomach cramps and headaches as well as pain in joints since having her second shot. No doctor in the uk has been able to help as all tests have come back normal. I would like to try alternative remedies but we live in the uk. Can you please help us?

    My daughter was a healthy 11 yr old I signed a paper for her not to get the vaccine and when my sister took her in for a sports physical they gave it to her we have been.

    My name is Lisa H. I am the lead representative litigant for a Federal Class Action lawsuit in Canada to hold Merck Frosst Canada Ltd. and Health Canada responsible for the many deaths and irreversible adverse side effects/injuries caused to our daughters and sons following the administration of the Gardasil Vaccine manufactured by Merck.
    If you are interested in joining this class action – we will be asking for significant damages to compensate for the physical, emotional and financial losses sustained by the victims and their families.
    Please submit a brief summary of your daughter or son’s injuries/adverse effects, only if they are persistent and ongoing since the vaccination. Also please send your contact details and your consent to discuss your case with our legal team. We are currently interviewing law firms in Toronto and Vancouver. This federal Class Action is for Canadian residents and citizens.
    Thank you,

    Thank you for sharing your story. I too am a mother of a 14 year old girl who is suffering from PGS. Kaitlyn went from being a healthy very active teenage girl to now being barely able to walk. She is in pain 24/7, every joint in her body hurts all the time. She has trouble sleeping from the pain. We’ve seen 5 doctors, 3 of which were at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, all they said she had fibromyalgia!!
    She does not have fibromyalgia, but she does have a heavy metal allergy. Coincidence that thiese vaccines are full of heavy metals? I was pressured my our family doctor, the school and health department nurses to give it to her. I wish I had done more research and made an informed decision.

    We are now working with a natrual path to try and detox her body. Kaitlyn used to dance comeptitively 20 hours a week, she played rep soccer and ran track and field. She had to quit all of those as walking is hard enough. I am prepared to fight and go to the end of the earth and back for her and the other girls. These vaccines should be shelved, there is not enough research yet now they are giving it to boys!

    We have strength in numbers, feel free to contact me anytime.

    I will pray for your daughter and you. It makes my heart hurt hearing all the stories and it infuriates me that Merck denies all the adverse effects.
