My name is Jamie, I have spent my whole life trusting doctors. I guess it is like they always say, it doesn’t bother you till it happens to you! I first heard about the Gardasil shot manufactured by Merck in July 2007. I think the only reason why it appealed to me is because my Daughter had just turned 10. I immediately hopped on the Internet to check it out. I read the Gardasil web site and read their basic information. I then Googled Gardasil side effects. Finding under that category nothing too alarming, I went and made an appointment. I talked to my husband and we both felt it was a good idea. I mean, I put her in my shoes, I have never been with anyone but my husband, but he had been with one other person prior to me. So, with that mentality, I figured that I wouldn’t want my daughter to get HPV, or cervical cancer just because she fell in love with someone that had been with someone else.

Uncensored MagazineUncensored Magazine of New Zealand invited me to write the following article regarding information I have uncovered on the HPV vaccine "Gardasil".  It features in their issue (June 09) and is also on their website



Being the mother of a ten your old daughter I was curious when I initially heard Helen Clarke announce the government was implementing a $180 million HPV vaccination programme for our daughters. Having investigated the meningococcal vaccine and seeing how our Ministry of Health was less than truthful with that programme, I was naturally suspicious to say the least.

I started with Helen Clarke's speech notes in which she states "about eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have HPV at some stage of their life.  Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself.  But in those cases where it doesn't and isn't treated, it can lead to precancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer."

I then delved into the facts of how HPV viruses cause cervical cancer.  Not much in the way of concrete facts there, however I did find information that suggests HPV is an unlikely cause of cancer as no set of viral genes is consistently present or expressed in human cervical cancers.  HPV does not replicate in the cancer cells.  All that has ever been shown is that HPV is sometimes present in cervical cancer tissue.  Also there appears to be a lack of evidence that cervical cancer presents in women with HPV more often than in women without it.

In the 1790s Edward Jenner invented vaccination. And he did it by observing that milk maids regular contact with cowpox, which was a common virus that was seen in the cattle industry, that those people who were exposed to those types of mild viruses rarely got severe cases of smallpox. So what he did was he inoculated the cowpox into a young boy who was subsequently exposed to the smallpox virus, and he found out that the young boy did not contract a full blown case of smallpox. Hence an entire vaccination industry was developed and born.
And it was based entirely on empirical evidence and observation. There was no understanding of immunity or how it worked and why it worked, that was centuries away. In fact right now in this day and age in 2008, we’re just beginning to understand the ramifications of this.

There’s no understanding of the impacts vaccines can have on the immune system, what sort of detrimental effects, what sort of side effects, what sort of health consequences can happen with all these vaccines and viruses being injected into your body. We’re just now beginning to understand this. So this has been going on since the early 1800s.

So this is something that has been going on for 150 years in order to promote vaccination, to instill fear in people of these diseases, and saying that ‘if I get these diseases I’m going to die so therefore the only way to protect myself from dying is to get a vaccine’. It’s been use in the media for a very long time.

So therefore it’s my opinion that the modern orthodox medical practice evolved from controlling vaccines and vaccination because t was the first medical intervention enforced by British law and now by U.S. law. So as medicine as a profession was starting to gel, and we were starting to see that there needed to be standardized training, standardized education, the foundation of that came out of the whole vaccination industry. And as physicians became known as the vaccinaters they had different clinics set up for vaccination. The money trade and the money that started to come from that. So I believe that it’s almost wrapped up in the DNA of the profession. It’s like the very founding parts of the profession. And why now if any parent or any other practitioner tries to question vaccines or parents go in and say I don’t want my children to have this, there is this vehement blow back by the doctors who administer them because it’s almost like challenging the very substance of medicine from which they came. And so it’s so entwined into the fabric of medicine that it’s very hard to unwind that.

After most children get past their 2, 4, 6 moths, 1 year and five year old vaccines, there’s this big gap of adolescence from like say 7 years of age, all the way up until adulthood that the vaccine industry through the pharmaceutical industry is looking at as their next market share. There’s a whole untapped market share of adolescence for which they can develop vaccines, and this is just the first of many.

This was the vaccination schedule as recently as 1985, so is you were born prior to 1985 or somewhere around that window, these were the vaccines that were available and given. Nothing was given at birth, a DPT vaccine which is diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus was given at 2, 4, and 6 months. The oral polio vaccine was given the little drops under the tongue which has 3 different viruses in it, was given at 2,4, and 6 months. The MMR vaccine measles, mumps, and rubella was given all by itself out there at 15 months of age and there were some boosters that went along. So when you add up the total number of vaccines that were given, that’s about 18 vaccines by 6 months of age and 33 by the time children enter kindergarten. That’s not 18 shots, that’s 18 vaccines, because DPT, those are three different vaccines, but it’s given in one shot. The polio vaccine is 3 different vaccines but it’s administered all at one time.So those are the number of vaccines that were actually given.

Well these are what was given, this is as recent as 2003. We added hepatitis, we added Hib,we added a chicken pox vaccine which is varicella. We added Pneumococcal which is Prevnar. That was in 2003 and look out there at that age group at the 12 months to 15 moths. Remember what I said before, as recently as 1985, MMR was given all by itself. Now the MMR is given in combination with a whole bunch of other vaccines, and is frequently administered with the chicken pox vaccine, which is 4 live virus vaccines all at one time.
Now, this is how many vaccines were given as recently as 2006. Remember what I said before that there were 18 by 6 months of age and 33 by the time kids entered kindergarten. In 2006 it was 54 by the time of 6 months of age, and 80 by the time they entered kindergarten. And those were up to 24 individual shots. That was through 2006. Now this is 2008. Now in addition we’ve added the rotavirus, hepatitis A, a chickenpox booster, so now children will get 103 vaccines by the time they start kindergarten.

ASA Throws Out Complaint Against Fitness Life Magazine

ASA Throws Out Complaint Against Fitness Life Magazine

5 May 2009 - Fitness Life magazine has been exonerated by the Advertising Standards Authority following a Government complaint about a billboard promoting an article on the Gardasil vaccine in its March issue.

Dr Greg Simmons, the Ministry of Health's Chief Advisor for Population Health, complained to the ASA over the central Auckland billboard promoting the article which questions the Ministry's all-positive stance on the new vaccine.

However, this week, all four points raised by the Ministry, regarding both the article and billboard, were thrown out by the ASA, following the magazine's rigorous defence of the quality of its research and its socially important role as a forum for information and debate.

"Any democratic society has the right to fully debate both sides of issues relating to public health," said Tania Greig, publisher of Fitness Life magazine.

"However, almost all of the media coverage and certainly the mass-marketing and advertising campaign for the Gardasil vaccination programme - has focused only on the positive angle promoted by the MOH and the drug's manufacturer."

Greig says research conducted by the article's author Lynda Wharton found Gardasil is under investigation regarding unacceptable side affects in overseas markets where it is already being used."

On these grounds, we felt some visible public inquiry around the potential long-term effects of this vaccination programme was justified, said Greig.

"As New Zealand's leading health and fitness magazine, we believe it is our moral duty to raise any such international concerns with the public and stimulate an open discussion."

The MOH initially asked Fitness Life to remove the advertisement, which was refused, before complaining to the ASA that the billboard and article were "misleading, deceptive and irresponsible". "We are delighted the ASA has backed our stance on this," said Greig.

"We believe, after due research on behalf of the journalist who wrote the story, that there is more to the Gardasil issue than is represented by the Ministry's advertisements, and that the public should be aware of this.

"In fact, we believe it would be deceptive and irresponsible to only talk Gardasil up, regardless of evidence of possible side-effects.

"The advertisement and article were commissioned with a keen sense of social responsibility and with the hope that, by asking entirely valid questions, we are opening the floor to fresh debate on an issue that is of great importance to families and their daughters.

"To date there has been no such public discussion of the possible side effects of this very new drug, which was fast-tracked through the FDA, just as Vioxx was.

"We sincerely hope that our feature and billboard stimulates such debate and ultimately helps provide the answers the public expects and deserves."

My daughter, Victoria, has been ill since February 2008. 

Here is some history.  My daughter had her first Gardasil vaccination November 2007. Her second vaccination was in the beginning of February 2008. Immediately after her second vaccination, Victoria experienced severe diarrhea and was nauseous for about eight weeks. She had blood work done many times and doctors thought she had a virus. On March 31, 2008, she had her first seizure. My daughter has treated with many neurologists, all of whom have not related her seizures to Gardasil. Meanwhile, there are quite a few hundred people that I have found over the internet through my numerous postings and through Erin Brockovich, and their daughters are all experiencing the same symptoms, which occurred after the Gardasil vaccination. We have actually formed a group and share our daughters' stories, symptoms and information. My daughter has had CT scans, MRI's, MRA's, EEG's, blood work and was hospitalized at an epilepsy center in the video EEG monitoring unit for two separa te weeks in May 2008 and September 2008. She was put on many different seizure medications. After the normal EEG results, she was taken off all medications. Her SED rate has always been high and she does have protein in her urine, but doctors do not seem concerned. I was told that her red blood are small, but this apparently is not concerning either.

My daughter has been seen by several neurologists, a psychiatrist, psychologist, several neuropsychologists, an immunologist, several infectious disease doctors, and also treated a at Wellness Center for a period of time. Wellness Center physicians believe that my daughter may have Lyme disease that was dormant until the Gardasil vaccine. Infectious disease doctors differ.  Which doctors are correct? I have no idea.

My daughter currently experiences the following symptoms: non-epileptic seizures, migraines, fainting, tremors (including her hands, legs, neck, face), twitches, numbness, intermittent leg paralysis and facial paralysis, tingling, staring or blank episodes, eye pain, joint pain, neck pain, back pain, memory loss, confusion, brain fog, regression, mood swings and chronic fatigue. She continues to have bouts of nausea and diarrhea. She has not been in school since April 2008. My daughter can never be left home alone. She can't go to school, go out with her friends or work or has little "normalcy" in her life. She has very few good days and always says she doesn't feel good.

I do not know which way to turn for help. We have seen so many doctors and I can't seem to find anyone willing to help my daughter. There are so many other young girls who have the same exact symptoms as my daughter and the one thing that all of the girls seem to have in common is the Gardasil vaccination.

Lawrence Solomon: First do no harm
Posted: May 23, 2009, 2:44 AM by Ron Nurwisah
Those who question the safety of vaccines are being unfairly attacked. Vaccines do both harm and good

Vaccines do good and they do harm. They also arouse passions among those who would see no harm. And intolerance, as seen in reactions to Oprah Winfrey and Jenny McCarthy for giving voice to vaccine skeptics.

Here’s the Vancouver Sun, in an article that focuses on celebrities raising doubts about the safety of vaccinating children: while “scientists are working around the clock to develop [vaccines], another group of people are working just as hard at promoting skepticism of vaccines ... with the Internet’s unparalleled ability to spread rumours, innuendo and conspiracy theories, and with celebrities taking a leading role in the anti-vaccinationist movement, stories about the damage allegedly caused by vaccines are receiving more publicity than ever.”

Or Jonathan Adler in the conservative National Review Online: “Oprah Winfrey has decided to promote the career — and by extension, the dangerous and lunatic ravings — of professional-bimbo-turned-anti-vaccine-activist Jenny McCarthy. Set aside any culture war concerns, the promotion of McCarthy’s views at such a level is a real, tangible threat to the physical health and well-being of our children.”

Or my own National Post, in an editorial entitled “The danger of an anti-vaccine panic”: “It seems there is no brand of New Age nonsense Oprah Winfrey will not peddle on her show, but getting involved with anti-vaccination sentiment crosses a hugely important line.”

The vaccinationists have good arguments. The preponderance of scientific studies generally absolves vaccines. Where the welfare of children is involved, the state can legitimately intervene when irresponsible parents endanger their offspring. And where contagious diseases are involved, the public is entitled to protection. The vaccinationist’s bottom line: While vaccines may not be risk free, the benefit to society of controlling and potentially eradicating disease is immense compared to the miniscule risk vaccination may attach to individuals.

But the anti-vaccinationists also have good arguments. Peer-reviewed vaccination studies, because they tend to be funded by the pharmaceutical industry, are suspect. The pro-vaccine bias of government funding agencies gives short shrift to studies proposed by skeptics. Even when dissenting peer-reviewed studies do somehow get funded and published, including in prestigious scientific journals, the studies tend to be dismissed and the authors personally attacked. The anti-vaccinationist’s bottom line: You vaccinate your children on the recommendations of the medical authorities if you wish; I’ll exercise my right to choose what’s best for my child by weighing the benefits and the risks of particular vaccines.

The concern of parents did not materialize in a vacuum. By the tens of thousands, children who were healthy the day before their vaccination suffered serious adverse reactions, sometimes death, soon after their vaccination. Medical authorities don’t publicize these reactions to the general public and GPs don’t publicize them to their patients — to the contrary, they tend to discount alarm from parents of children they have vaccinated, reassuring the parents that there is no relationship between the vaccination they administered and their child’s new condition.

But parents often don’t buy it — when their children die, or behave strangely, immediately after a vaccine, they understandably wonder about a possible link. Neither do parents buy the greater good argument — that they must place their own child’s health at risk in order to protect the children of others. Finally, if vaccines are so safe, why did pharmaceutical companies seek and obtain exemptions from liability, why did governments need to establish funds to compensate victims of vaccinations-gone-bad, and why do pro-vaccine authorities dismiss their critics and act as if they have something to hide?

Consider Gardasil, Merck’s HPV vaccine, recommended for mass vaccination for girls as young as 9 (HPV is the most common sexually-transmitted infection). Before hitting the U.S. market in 2006 with the enthusiastic recommendation of governmental health authorities, Merck studied Gardasil’s side effects in only 1200 girls aged 16 and younger, and for less than two years. The girls that died or were inflicted with serious health problems during its pre-licensing clinical trials, Merck concluded, were coincidences.

women tell their stories about ‘cervical cancer vaccines’

May 24, 2009

My daughter, Kristyn, received her first Gardasil shot on January 9th, 2009. Her doctor practically forced it on us and scared my daughter into getting it. My daughter was 15.

Shortly after receiving her first shot, she almost passed out while we were in Wal-Mart.

I thought it was from not eating, so I bought her a candy bar. She had a couple other times where she felt like she was going to pass out after that.

Her second shot was on March 9th, 2009, just one day after her 16th birthday. It was after the second shot that she started complaining of odd things.

Before getting the Gardasil shots, she was a healthy, happy, energetic 16 year old teenager.   After receiving the second shot, she was up all night one night with terrible leg pains in both legs. I figured it was just ‘growing pains’. Then after a few days, she was very dizzy and couldn’t walk straight. I did not realize what was going on until March 20th, 2009.

It was that Friday morning when I received an email concerning Gardasil and what it was doing to other girls. I got an email with a link to a young girl’s video on Youtube. The young girl’s name is Holly. (Her and her mother are both in a yahoo group called Let’s Talk About Gardasil that I’m a member of.) After watching that heart breaking video, I started researching and made the connection with Gardasil and my daughters’ problems.

It just so happened to be that same Friday that we ended up in the Emergency Room with my daughter. She was having leg pains in both legs, tingling in both legs, numbness in both legs and also her left arm. She had terrible weakness all over and just felt like she had no energy. She was in tears with the pain so I took her to the ER.

They did a CT scan and some blood work. They could not find anything ‘wrong’ with her but she kept saying that something was not right. The doctor advised that we not get the third Gardasil shot because she was obviously having a reaction to the vaccine.

I called her doctor’s office on Monday, March 23rd to tell them what was going on and what I had found. They said to bring her right in, so I did.

At first the doctor did not even want to discuss the link that I had found with Gardasil and the 10,000 plus reports that had been reported on VAERS. She dismissed it all and said that it couldn’t be Gardasil. I told her that there was no way that she could positively say that since this vaccine is SO new and had only been clinically tested for 5 years and not on girls from ages 9 thru 15 (that clinical study was stopped before it was concluded).

She did more blood work the next day (Tuesday, March 24th) and said it would be a week before we got the results back. I told her that all of the other girls that are sick or have died (47 deaths the last I checked), all of their tests seem to come back ‘normal’.

During this week, Kristyn got worse. She began to have back pain that went from her neck to her feet, terrible pressure in her head, involuntary muscle jerking, nausea, diarrhea, weight loss, severely tired, chest pains, rib pain, heart racing, I can’t even remember all of her symptoms.

She’s been back to the ER since then (by ambulance because of problems breathing) and has been unable to do her class work since this started. (most of the girls have had to drop out of school because they are SO sick!).

Now she is having problems with her vision and the light hurts her eyes.

I received a call from her doctor’s office telling me that she was diagnosed with Rheumatic Fever. They called in Penicillin for her to take. They basically have started acting like they aren’t interested in her.

Kristyn took her full round of penicillin. During the course of the medication, she seemed to feel better. But now that the penicillin is finished, her symptoms have started coming back.

Since this diagnosis, she’s been to other doctors.  Several of them have told me that diagnosing her with Rheumatic Fever would be very hard to do just based on her blood panel results.  So I don’t know if she has/had Rheumatic Fever or not.

Oh I forgot to mention, on January 9th when she got her first Gardasil shot, they also gave her Menactra (which I did not know they were giving her). Since I started researching this I found that Merck only tested Gardasil with Hep B vaccine. The reports of these side effects are off the chart when mixed with Menactra!

Some of these girls are having grand mal seizures, paralysis, pancreatitis, all sorts of STRANGE and unusual diagnosis and symptoms. We’re talking very healthy, active (some even very athletic) girls before Gardasil…now these same girls are very sick and nobody can find out what is going on.

I have an idea of what is going on but I’m no doctor. The Gardasil shots have 225 micrograms of reactive aluminium in each shot. 1 microgram is considered to be toxic!

My daughter has been allergic to nickel since she was born.  Maybe this is why my daughter is suffering, because of the aluminium that’s in the vaccine? A lot of the other girls that are having these types of symptoms are also allergic to costume jewelery, metals, etc.  Maybe THIS is another link?

Why have the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries chosen to experiment with the first ever, large scale application of a new, unproven, genetically modified, inter-species gene mixing vaccine technology on the female youth of an entire generation?

Under the ruse of attempting to eradicate cervical cancer, Merck is actually engaged in the first large scale, real world deployment and testing of genetically modified DNA, genetically engineered proteins and genetics produced by the combining of genetic material from more than one origin or species in a vaccine.

We just want some answers. They need to pull this vaccine off the market and do some further research! Gardasil was fast-tracked through the FDA and is now a mandatory vaccine in several states, with other states following suit.
It is an outrage what is happening to our daughters!

We have had several girls that have been interviewed by the media in several states, and some have been interviewed by their local newspapers. We are trying to get the word out as fast as we can because these doctors are dispensing this GardaHELL like candy every day…and every day that passes is that many more girls that will become very ill.

I did not know of any of this when I allowed that doctor to inject this poison into my daughter’s body. They said it was safe and that she even gave it to her own daughter.

I’ve since found out that most of the girls’ doctors that are sick said the same things to them!

One more thing…the last time we checked VAERS, there was almost 16,000 reports…that’s up from 10,000 since March 24th and they are backlogged, so that number isn’t even correct. And it’s estimated that only 1 to 10% adverse effects are even reported.

My daughter was taking a low dose birth control pill because she was having a ‘heavier than normal’ discharge.  Her doctor put her on the birth control to try and regulate this.

After she started having all of these side effects/reactions, she decided to throw the birth control in the trash.  She didn’t want anything going in her body.
Two weeks after throwing them in the trash, she got pregnant.  Now she is having to go through high risk doctors.  Her health is not good and now she is carrying a baby that could possibly be affected by the Gardasil.

Merck states that Gardasil is not recommended for pregnant women.  They have set up a registry on their site to follow women that get pregnant or are already pregnant and didn’t know it while having the Gardasil vaccine injections.  There are reports of spontaneous abortions and fetal abnormalities in women that were injected with Gardasil.

So not only are we dealing with all of the symptoms that Kristyn has… we are also worried about the baby.

I’m just sick of trying to talk to doctors about the links to Gardasil and hearing ‘it’s not the Gardasil’.  How can they be so certain?  This vaccine is NEW and was only tested for 5 years.  It would just be nice to finally find a doctor that would really look into this!  The doctors just seem to not want to deal with any of us if we even mention Gardasil to them!

I just want my healthy, happy and energetic teenage daughter back!!
Please educate before you vaccinate with the HPV vaccine Gardasil!
Gardasil is hurting and killing our beautiful daughters all over the globe!
My 16 year old daughter is one that has been hurt by getting vaccinated.  And I did not know the dangers beforehand.
Please get informed first!  I wish I had!
