Naomi Snell, a 28-year-old woman in Melbourne, Australia, is leading a class-action civil lawsuit versus drug maker Merck after suffering autoimmune and neurological complications following injections with the HPV vaccine, Gardasil.
After getting the first of three dosages of the vaccine, Naomi suffered convulsions, severe back and neck pain, and lost her capability to walk.
Doctors in fact identified her with multiple sclerosis, which was later withdrawed and identified a neurological response to the vaccine.
Seven other women, who say they have suffered different physical problems, consisting of anaphylaxis and miscarriage, after getting Gardasil might also sign up with the civil suit, and this is likely just the beginning, as Gardasil is being linked in a growing number of serious, long-term and sometimes lethal unfavorable responses.
Multiple Sclerosis-Like Symptoms and Paralysis Not Unusual After HPV Vaccination
Unfortunately, stories like Naomi’s are all too common in relation to Gardasil.
She had currently suffered two strokes and skilled partial paralysis. She also lost part of her vision and today suffers frequent seizures. When she was in high school, lots of days she needed to use a wheelchair to get around school due to muscle pain and chronic fatigue.
A similar response happened to 13-year-old Jenny Tetlock, who started seeing signs of difficulty just one month after she was immunized against the HPV infection. Fifteen months later, a degenerative muscle disease left her almost completely paralyzed.
Neurological symptoms such as these were also reported in a study carried out in 2009 by neurologist Dr. Ian Sutton. He reported 5 cases of multiple sclerosis-like symptoms emerging quickly after women got the Gardasil vaccine, keeping in mind:
” We report 5 patients who provided with multifocal or irregular demyelinating syndromes within 21 days of immunization with the quadrivalent human papilloma infection (HPV) vaccine, Gardasil. Although the target population for vaccination, young females, has a naturally high risk for MS, the temporal association with demyelinating events in these cases might be explained by the powerful immuno-stimulatory properties of HPV virus-like particles which consist of the vaccine.”
Even more, Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, just recently provided an upgrade on unfavorable reaction reports relating to Gardasil.
The documents acquired from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) information 26 new deaths reported to the government following HPV vaccination between September 1, 2010 and September 15, 2011. That’s 26 reported deaths of young, formerly healthy, girls after Gardasil vaccination in simply one year.
Side Effects of HPV Vaccine Gardasil:
- Loss of sight.
- Speech problems.
- Short-term amnesia.
- Guillain-Barre syndrome.
- Ovarian cysts.
Between May 2009 and September 2010, 16 deaths after Gardasil vaccination were reported. For that timeframe, there were also 789 reports of “serious” Gardasil unfavorable responses, consisting of 213 cases of long-term disability and 25 identified cases of Guillain Barre Syndrome, Judicial Watch reported.
Serious Vaccine Reactions, Deaths, Often Labeled “Coincidence”
While it is not clear exactly what is triggering so many adverse responses, it is understood that Gardasil includes genetically crafted virus-like protein particles along with aluminum, which can affect immune function.
Even more, according to the vaccine manufacturer item details insert, the vaccine has not been examined for the possible to cause cancer or to be harmful to genes.
In truth, Merck only studied the Gardasil vaccine in fewer than 1,200 women under 16 prior to it being launched to the market under a fast-tracked roadway to licensure. To date, most of the serious side effects, including deaths, that took place during the pre-licensure scientific trials and post marketing monitoring have been written off as a “coincidence” by Merck scientists and government health officials.
However on the National Vaccine Information Center’s (NVIC) Web site, you can read about Gabi Swank’s Gardasil response and other descriptions of women and women who have suffered serious health degeneration after Gardasil shots and, in many cases, have passed away quickly after getting this vaccine. The growing Gardasil vaccine injury toll has actually become too large to disregard:
- Christina Tarsell, a 21-year-old university student at Bard College, who dropped dead and without description soon after receiving the third Gardasil shot in June 2008.
- Megan, a 20-year-old college student who dropped dead, without description, about one month after receiving her third Gardasil shot. No cause of death was found.
- Ashley, a 16-year-old who ended up being chronically ill after getting Gardasil, and now suffers regular life-threatening episodes of seizure-like experience, trouble breathing, back spasms, paralysis, dehydration, amnesia and tremors.
There are more than 100 types of human papillomaviruses (HPVs). Of them, about 40 types of HPV are sexually sent and 15 of these types are most connected with cervical cancers and genital warts in women and men. HPV infections that remain unknown and untreated for a long period of time are also connected with development of vaginal, vulvar, penile, anal and oropharyngeal cancers. Some HPV infections can cause minor skin infections and common warts on your hands and feet.
Particular types of chronic HPV infections, which are not determined or treated for a long period of time, can result in cervical cancer. It is just when the HPV virus sticks around for several years that irregular cervical cells might turn into cancer. This is why PAP smears identify cervical changes and can prevent cervical cancer deaths much more successfully than the HPV vaccine ever will, since there’s a sufficient amount of time to find and treat any cervical irregularities if you’re getting regular PAP smears.
It is essential to know, nevertheless, that over 90 percent of women infected with HPV clear the infection naturally within two years, at which point cervical cells return to normal.
The death rate from cervical cancer in the United States is 3 per 100,000 and it is approximated that, in 2011, about 12,000 women were identified with cervical cancer and 4,000 died. In 2009, there had to do with 34,000 deaths from car mishaps in the United States for a death rate of 11 per 100,000.
Women have a much higher risk of passing away in a car accident than dying from cervical cancer!
Cervical cancer rates are even lower in some European countries. The reason the mortality rate is so low is because– for the large majority of healthy women residing in industrialized countries like Europe and the United States– their body immune systems are normally strong enough to naturally clear HPV infection within two years. Once again, this takes place in more than 90 percent of all cases!
Naturally, even if you get HPV vaccine, if you contract one of the 40 or more types of HPV that are sexually transmitted and aren’t included in the vaccine, you will not be protected from HPV infections. And, if you’ve currently been exposed to among the four types of viruses in the vaccine, it doesn’t work versus those either.
This means that, even if you accept the risks and get vaccinated, your chances of experiencing some type of HPV infection are still really high. Whether the HPV infection will result in genital warts or cervical cancer or other type of health problems, nevertheless, depends in large part on the state of your body immune system and, when it comes to cervical cancer, is impacted by whether or not you get routine PAP screenings.
If You Live in California, Your Minor Daughter or Son Can Be Given Gardasil Vaccine Without Your Knowledge or Consent
In October 2011, California Governor Jerry Brown signed bill AB499 that allows minor children as young as 12 years old to be immunized with sexually sent disease (STD) vaccines like Gardasil– without parental knowledge or parental authorization. This means that, if you reside in California, school or medical workers will soon be allowed to give your child Gardasil, liver disease B vaccine and future vaccines for STD’s without you ever understanding it.
Obviously, also at problem is whether this law breaks long held legal rights for parents to be responsible for making crucial medical choices for their children, especially when risk-taking is included. If a child is injured from complications of a medical procedure or use of a pharmaceutical product, it is the parent who will be lawfully and economically accountable for supplying look after the child.
Therefore, the legal right for parents to work out informed grant medical risk-taking for minor children, that includes providing consent for use of a pharmaceutical item, such as a vaccine, that carries a risk of injury or death, is an important legal right to defend and protect in America.
