It is not surprising and indeed it is heartening to hear that a young woman from Ireland is suing Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE), the health minister, the education minister, the attorney-general and the state.
The woman who became ill after her Gardasil vaccination joins many other groups of women who are now suing the manufacturer of Gardasil and the state. There are six other cases over Gardasil before the Irish courts. A class action against the manufacturers of Gardasil began on August 4, 2017 on behalf of 700 Columbian women who in March 2014 were admitted to the hospital suffering new medical conditions following their HPV vaccination. And in Japan twenty-eight girls and women suffering side effects from cervical cancer vaccines that were recommended by the government are demanding compensation from the state.
In Australia to date there are over 4000 adverse events and one death from Gardasil reported to the Therapeutic Goods Administration. We really need to ask what the TGA is doing about this situation? What will it take for our health watchdog to take action?
As the Australian school year begins it’s time to think about vaccines, especially if you are a parent of a young teenager. From this year, Gardasil 9, the latest human papilloma virus vaccine will be given to all Australian 12 and 13-year-old students. But what do you know about this vaccine? Before you sign the consent form which in no way informs you or your child, please do some research and then decide what is right for your situation.
Gardasil 9 was approved for use in Australia by the TGA last year and is said to be protective against nine HPV types: 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58. This new vaccine supersedes the quadrivalent HPV vaccine – Gardasil, which has been given to girls and women since 2007 and to teenage boys from 2013. For more on the possible adverse effects of this vaccine please read my article What parents should know about Gardasil 9
And as you research this vaccine be ever mindful that there is no need for Gardasil 9. According to the VAERS reporting system this new HPV vaccine is already responsible for over 7000 adverse events. There is no need for Gardasil either, a very sore point for the women, girls and boys who have become so very ill after HPV vaccination that they cannot go to school or even look after themselves.
The reason this vaccine was hyped, developed and marketed was it was supposed to be a vaccine that would prevent cervical cancer. But there is no epidemic of this disease in western nations such as Australia. Cervical cancer is detected by Pap smears and to date this vaccine has not prevented a single case of the disease. As of this month there have been over 83,000 adverse effects after Gardasil vaccination recorded on the World Health Organisation’s website. These severe adverse effects are increasing; there is no letting up on the damage being done in the wake of this unnecessary vaccine. In June 2017 the amount of severe adverse events recorded on this WHO website was 73000. One has to seriously wonder why these vaccines are not stopped. What is the use of collating this long list of adverse events if there is to be no action.
When will we see a class action take place in Australia? Many girls still do not know where or how to report their vaccine damage. Here is the link where you can report your reaction. Of course many girls and their families do not even connect the vaccination with their newly developed disease so there is certain to be more damage which is not being recorded to the TGA.
What will it take to reverse this harmful and unnecessary vaccination program. Gardasil 9 is now part of the school vaccination program offered freely to all teenagers. We have to continue to spread the word about these HPV vaccines.
One thing is certain we are sure to see more court action as the injuries escalate.
