To date, there have been 283 VAERS reports of abnormal Pap tests following HPV vaccination. Gardasil and Cervarix claim to offer protection against the most common HPV viruses associated with cervical cancer. What is wrong with this picture?
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Sep 20, 2010 – Both FDA approved HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, claim to offer protection from infections by the human papillomavirus genotypes most commonly associated with precancerous lesions and cervical cancer, HPV-16 and HPV-18. The manufacturers are also beginning to claim there is evidence of cross-protection against HPV genotypes 31 and 45. There are at least 283 young women who probably do not believe these statements.
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a voluntary system. There are no requirements or legal obligations to report new medical conditions (adverse events) which occur after vaccination. Current estimates say that only 1-10% of the people who actually experience adverse events file reports.
The SaneVax team is concerned that with only 1-10% reporting, there may be as many as 28,300 people who have experienced abnormal Pap tests after HPV vaccination. This is not acceptable collateral damage.
