[SaneVax: Danish medical authorities report serious adverse events after HPV vaccine administration at a rate of 50/100,000 injections. The cervical cancer mortality rate in Denmark is only 3.2/100,000 women. Do the benefits outweigh the risks? Probably not for the young women experiencing serious adverse reactions.]
New HPV Vaccine Adverse Events in Denmark
By HPV Vaccine Info
The Danish Health and Medicines Authority (Sundhedsstyrelsen) published a newsletter this September, where they went through some of the latest adverse events reported after HPV vaccination.
In total there have been reported 269 serious adverse events after HPV vaccination in Denmark, which on the basis of the given doses, is equivalent to 50 serious adverse events per 100,000 vaccinated women. It is a very large part when you compare it with other vaccines, or even hold it up against the risk of dying from cervical cancer, which at the moment are 3.2 out of 100,000 women in Denmark.
Among the most common adverse events reported to The Danish Health and Medicines Authority, that can’t be classified as serious, 11% reported headaches, 10% reported dizziness and 7% reported sensory disorders. Oddly enough sensory disorder is not even mentioned in a single drug information leaflet, even though sensory disorder is one of the most common reported adverse events in Denmark, with a total of 75 reported adverse events so far. The rare illness, Guillain Barre disease is also reported, but it is mentioned in the drug information leaflet and it is a disease that can cause prickly and stabbing pain, sensory disorder or muscle weakness in the limbs and it can cause limited or total paralysis. If there are any signs of Guillain Barre disease it is very important to be proper diagnosed.
