The summer of 2009 revealed two inconvenient truths about vaccination: first, the Gardasil vaccine is not as safe for girls as the government, medical organizations and Merck have said it is; and second, the H1N1 influenza pandemic is not as serious as health officials are telling us it is. Which means that fast tracked swine flu vaccines children will get in schools this fall may end up being more risky than getting the flu.


Doctors Question Benefits & Merck Marketing Tactics

On August 19, the Journal of the American Medical Association published two important articles written by doctors questioning whether HPV vaccine benefits outweigh the risks of recommending it for all young girls. The intellectually honest doctors publicly criticized the aggressive marketing of Gardasil vaccine by Merck and certain Merck-funded U.S. medical organizations and asked for more scientific evidence that universal HPV vaccination is necessary, safe and effective.


Bad Outcome Report After 1 In Every 1,855 Gardasil Shots

In the third article, written by government health officials, it was revealed that 1 in every 1,855 Gardasil shots is followed by a bad health outcome report to the government’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System.

These bad health outcomes reported after Gardasil shots include lots of girls suddenly passing out and having seizures within minutes or hours of getting vaccinated and suffering head injuries and broken bones when they hit the floor. In fact, there is a larger than expected rate of girls passing out after getting Gardasil vaccine.


Girls Passing Out & Having Car Accidents

Back in 2007, the National Vaccine Information Center warned that many girls given Gardasil shots were losing consciousness within minutes or hours. Some girls have left doctors offices and fallen unconscious while driving and had car accidents. This brings up the little known fact that four girls who got Gardasil in Merck’s pre-licensure clinical trials died in car accidents. How many of those girls suddenly collapsed while driving?

Clearly, Gardasil vaccine should be given while girls are lying down and they should be warned that sudden collapse can occur without warning within 24 hours of getting vaccinated.

 For any person that got the Gardasil vaccinations and did NOT have any side effects or symptoms, PLEASE go and have a pap test done immediately! We are getting reports of these girls that had no side effects to the vaccine that are now getting cervical lesions and cervical cancer. So if you know of anyone that received Gardasil with NO side effects, PLEASE tell them to get a pap test done immediately!

My 16 yr old daughter was also injured by Gardasil. She had 2 of the 3 injections (Jan 9th and March 9th, 2009). Before Gardasil, she was a happy, healthy and vibrant teenager. Since Gardasil she is sick every day of her life. She has dizziness, overall weakness, numbness and tingling in both legs and left arm, back pain, neck pain, pressure headaches, vision problems, breathing problems, chest pains, racing heartbeats, brain fog, stomach problems, nausea, diarhea, weight loss, hair loss, jerking all over spells...the list goes on and on.

She was an A/B student but failed her 10th grade year because she was too sick to retain what she was trying to learn (brain fog). She no longer has the energy to go off with her friends. Most days she lays in bed, in pain.

This just doesnt happen to a healthy teenager!! And it just doesnt happen to THOUSANDS of other girls with no connection except they all had the Gardasil vaccine.

It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.

Please educate yourself as much as you can before you allow anyone to push this unproven and unsafe vaccine on your daughter! The guilt is overwhelming from a mothers' standpoint! I thought I was doing something to protect my daughter. Instead, I allowed the doctor to inject poison into my child and take away her life!

These 'side effects' are NOT rare! They are happening every day to literally hundreds of thousands of young girls after receiving Gardasil. The numbers in VAERS is estimated to only be between 1-10% of the true numbers! Try asking some of us moms who have to deal with these horrible side effects every day if we consider it to be RARE!

Everyone should look at the other side of the fence and research this. There are thousands of girls that are coming down with strange illnesses, paralysis, gran mal seizures, etc. after receiving Gardasil.

We are now getting reports of girls as young as age 9 that are breaking out with genital warts and severe cases of cervical cancer AFTER receiving Gardasil. Some of these girls/women did not initially have any side effects from the vaccine.

There are perfectly healthy girls all of a sudden come down with all of these strange sicknesses (some that I cant even pronounce) after getting jabbed with Gardasil. All within hours/days/weeks?

Just like Merck's 'wonderful' Vioxx...what will it take? How many dead/injured before someone takes notice?

Harper: Controversal Drug Will Do Little To Reduce Cervical Cancer Rates

By Susan Brinkmann, For The Bulletin
Sunday, October 25, 2009
Dr. Diane Harper, lead researcher in the development of two human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, said the controversial drugs will do little to reduce cervical cancer rates and, even though they’re being recommended for girls as young as nine, there have been no efficacy trials in children under the age of 15.

Dr. Harper, director of the Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Research Group at the University of Missouri, made these remarks during an address at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination which took place in Reston, Virginia on Oct. 2-4. Although her talk was intended to promote the vaccine, participants said they came away convinced the vaccine should not be received.

 ARE PREGNANT WOMEN RECEIVING VACCINE ENDANGERING THEIR BABY?

BY SUSIE STONE - FORT WORTH'S TODAY

It has always been a principle of medicine that one should not vaccinate pregnant women, except in extreme cases, because the risk to the baby is just too high. Recently, we have seen two examples of violation of this policy. When the HPV vaccine Gardasil was first released the CDC and the manufacturer (Merck Pharmaceutical Company) recommended that it be given to pregnant women.

Shortly after beginning this dangerous practice it was ordered halted because a number of women were losing their babies and babies were being born with major malformations. 

 Rat Poison Chemical Found GARDASIL

 

by Joanne Waldron [Nov 2008]

What do rat poison and the HPV vaccine have in common? The answer is a hazardous chemical known as sodium borate. Savvy readers may wonder what a toxin that is commonly used to kill rats is doing in the ingredient list for the HPV vaccine that is currently being pushed on girls as young as nine and is even being considered for men and boys. Unfortunately, the answer isn't very comforting, especially for new U.S. residents for whom the HPV injection containing sodium borate is now mandated.

What is Sodium Borate?

Sodium borate, a boric acid salt also known as borax, has many common uses. In addition to its use as a rat poison, it is also used in laundry detergents, cosmetics, enamel glazes, flame retardants, and buffer solutions in chemistry. However, sodium borate also has antifungal properties, which means that its probable reason for being in the vaccine is to act as a preservative.

Sodium Borate Banned as Food Additive

Sodium borate is used as a food additive in some countries, but it is now outlawed in many places. For example, one Australian government recall site notes: "Product is Borax (sodium borate) which is a non permitted food additive and is harmful to health." So, if it's "harmful to health," why is it being added to the HPV vaccine?

No Longer Used in Medical Preparations

The U.S. National Library of Medicine states in an article that boric acid is "no longer commonly used in medical preparations." It's a good thing, too, considering that the U.S. National Library of Medicine also reports that this substance used to be used to disinfect and treat wounds and that individuals "who received such treatment over and over again got sick, and some died." In fact, the U.S. National Library of Medicine provides the number for Poison Control for people exposed to this chemical and notes that treatment for those exposed to it may include gastric lavage (stomach pumping), dialysis, and liquids by mouth or IV.

Sodium Borate Poisoning Symptoms Mimic Reactions to HPV Vaccine

Sadly, the information about sodium borate gets even scarier. Another government website article states that exposure to sodium borate can cause convulsions and other ill health effects. Interestingly enough, young girls who receive the HPV vaccine have reported similar symptoms to those that appear in cases of sodium borate poisoning. This particular government site provides the following warning regarding this chemical: "WARNING! HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED, INHALED OR ABSORBED THROUGH SKIN. CAUSES IRRITATION TO SKIN, EYES AND RESPIRATORY TRACT." Given this information, is sodium borate really something that should be injected into humans? This is something the reader should carefully consider, along with the previously reported information, before choosing to receive the controversial HPV vaccine.

The following is Hilary's letter holding Medsafe and CARM accountable for their dismissive explanations in NZ Herald article regarding Jasmine Renata's death due to Gardasil

Open Letter to Dr Stewart Jessamine, Medsafe.
 Saturday, 9 January, 2009.

 

Dear Dr Jessamine,

I have been working with Rhonda Renata since October, regarding her daughter’s death following the Gardasil vaccination, and have permission to discuss her death, and for all information I have to be made public. This letter has been written with Rhonda, and all attachments are attached as requested by Rhonda.I also have Rhonda’s permission to discuss other aspects of this case on my website, now that Rhonda has gone public through the Herald today:

 

Reference: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10619244 9 January 2010.

CSL, which markets Gardasil in New Zealand, said it was unlikely the investigations would find the vaccine caused Jasmine's death.The Ministry of Health said it was important not to jump to conclusions about Jasmine's death until more information was available.

"Information from immunisation programmes overseas has not raised any concerns over the safety of this vaccine, in which over 44 million doses have been distributed worldwide," said Dr Stewart Jessamine, group manager of the ministry's medicines safety authority Medsafe.

CARM director Michael Tatley yesterday told the Herald an investigation was under way, but details of the girl's death were "really scant stuff"  The matter was still before the coroner.  The girl is believed to have died in the past couple of months. Her death had come within six months of receiving the Gardasil vaccination, but it was not known if she had completed the course - generally three shots administered six weeks apart.

 

Before I discuss specific issues which concern me, please find attached Jasmine’s medical recordsJas medical records.pdf; two documents which were sent to Dr Michael Tatley’s office by Rhonda Renata on the 21th November, 2009, (Report card Jasmine Renata HPV Reporting card.pdf , and supplementary documents Jasmine Renata.pdf ) acknowledged by Janelle Ashton on 23.11.2009, and assigned the CARM report number, 087237. Please also find attached the provisional report after autopsy Provisional postmortem.pdf ; ESR letter 17th Novmber 2009 ESR 17 Nov 2009.pdf , and please note that this was all that has been received by the parents.

· Can you read the provisional report?

· Do you think that this “information” is appropriate for parents?

· Shouldn’t parents in Rhonda’s position, receive an outline of what will be done; how, and in what time frame?

Jasmine died on 22nd September 2009.

· Do you think it reasonable that Jasmine’s parents still have no autopsy results?

Grieving mother blames cancer vaccine
NEW ZEALAND HERALD - 9 JAN. 2010
Rhonda Renata is in no doubt about what caused the death of her daughter Jasmine.

The 18-year-old died last September 22 at her family home in Upper Hutt, apparently in her sleep.

It was six months since she had received the last of the three injections of the cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil.

Her grieving mother is still waiting for official answers on what happened to Jasmine but she doubts the medical investigations will provide them.

Her own inquiries have led her to cases overseas which she considers similar to Jasmine's clutch of symptoms before she died.

In the United States, it has been alleged more than 10 deaths are linked to Gardasil.

Several lawsuits have been filed relating to paralysis of teenage girls, one of whom died.

CSL, which markets Gardasil in New Zealand, said it was unlikely the investigations would find the vaccine caused Jasmine's death.
CCID: 27383

No causal relationship had been established between Gardasil and any deaths or cases of paralysis, said CSL spokeswoman Rachel David. There was an established risk of severe allergic reaction immediately after the injection, but cases were rare.

The Ministry of Health said it was important not to jump to conclusions about Jasmine's death until more information was available.

"Information from immunisation programmes overseas has not raised any concerns over the safety of this vaccine, in which over 44 million doses have been distributed worldwide," said Dr Stewart Jessamine, group manager of the ministry's medicines safety authority Medsafe.

Like Mrs Renata, Medsafe is still awaiting the post-mortem report which is prepared for the Wellington coroner, who is investigating the case.

Mrs Renata said the family had only been told there was no alcohol or drugs in Jasmine's body.

She recalls her last night with Jasmine, which was the day she passed her restricted driver's licence.

"She was really over the moon that day; she was quite stoked with herself."

Jasmine picked her mother up from work and they went shopping and ate together before heading home.

"She gave me a hug and a kiss and said, 'I love you'. I said, 'Love you too' and she went to bed."

GARDASIL killed my daughter

I don’t know about you ....... but I am sick and tired of hearing and reading usual propaganda from the Ministry of Health.  Just because the reactions or side-affects don’t match those expected that fall into the so-called category for that particular pharmaceutical product. 

 Reporting adverse reactions

The Centre for Adverse Reaction Monitoring (CARM) welcomes all adverse reaction reports but particularly requests serious or unexpected reactions.  As one of the main objectives is to identify hitherto unrecognised reactions, presenters should not be deterred by uncertainty regarding cause and effect. For products on the Intensive Medicines Monitoring Programme all adverse clinical events should be reported, whether or not they are thought to be related to the use of the medicine.

   HA !!  Serious..... Unexpected..... Unrecognised..... deterred..... uncertainty.....?

I wonder if Gardasil for Cervical Cancer is even on their intensive Medicines Monitoring Programme giving the fact it was fast-tracked by the FDA before full testing was complete.

My Daughter fitted into that category.  Her reaction was SERIOUSLY UNEXPECTED. Death usually is when you are a very healthy person....... don’t smoke, don’t do drugs and don’t indulge in alcohol.  Go to bed happy and die in your sleep.    OH and we didn't see that coming, So wouldn't that come under UNEXPECTED ?!

My Daughter Jasmine,  Right up until she began the Gardasil for Cervical Cancer Vaccine had a very, normal, cheerful and happy 18 years.... never had any underlining or serious health issues.  And was up to date with all other immunisations.

But after her very first shot of Gardasil in September 2008, she had warts developing on her hands at an incredible rate and had her doctor freeze them off in October 2008.

November 2008 had second shot of Gardasil. The warts on her hands returned and she had her doctor once again ...freeze them off at end of January 2009.

March 2009 Had third shot of Gardasil.

 Right from the first shot as I recall my daughter’s last year she had complained of all  kinds of ailments but were not serious enough to rush to the doctor’s for ... as they would disappear as fast as they came on.

 note:      warts on her hands......headaches often.....dizziness.....weak arms and legs....pins and needles in hands.....moody/snappy.....sweating profusely/her pillow was wet in winter.....lost assertiveness in her own decisions.....memory lapses.....hating on herself because of memory lapses, warts, pimples and just the way she perceived herself......back pain.....sleeping more in the daytime.....feeling sick ......stomach feeling so tight it was painful.....abdominal pains......chest pains......heart racing for no reason.
