On 7August 2014, Fox6News reported that yet another innocent child had died after receiving the HPV vaccination, Gardasil. This takes the current HPV vaccine reported death toll to 170, according to the sanevax.org website. 
Twelve year-old Meredith Prohaska died within hours of receiving the Gardasil vaccination. Rebecca Prohaska, Meredith’s mother, told reporters that her daughter had received the vaccine at around 10:30 am on July 30 and had died later that day.
“The only thing different about that day was that shot. I wish I would’ve known more about it before I agreed to it.”
Dr. Geoffrey Swain, a professor and medical doctor at the Milwaukee Health Department, disagreed; he told Fox6News that by and large, the HPV vaccine’s benefits far outweigh the risks. He told reporters:
“Vaccines in general and the HPV vaccine in particular, are very, very safe. It’s a very safe vaccine and very effective.”
Dr. Swain concluded his statement with:
“Serious side effects are nearly one in a million.”
“Rebecca Prohaska remembers a rare potential side effect of the HPV vaccine — an allergic reaction, but Meredith’s autopsy report rules her cause of death as inconclusive.” 
Conflicting Opinions and Information
Despite Dr. Swain’s seemingly reassuring words, one of the leading organizations reporting on the dangers of the HPV vaccines, sanevax.org, paints an entirely different picture. On their homepage, they display a chart documenting over 35,000 adverse reactions reported to the VAERS website (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System):
|Did Not Recover||7,111|
|Abnormal Pap Smear||572|
|Extended Hospital Stay||251|
Shockingly, these figures are estimated to represent only 10% of the true figure of vaccine injuries being reported in the US.
To explain this massive under-rerporting of vaccine injuries, Think Twice Global Vaccine Institute stated that:
“In 1986, Congress officially acknowledged the reality of vaccine-caused injuries and death by creating and passing The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (Public Law 99-660). The safety reform portion of this law requires doctors to provide parents with information about the benefits and risks of childhood vaccines prior to vaccination, and to report vaccine reactions to federal health officials. Doctors are required by law to report suspected cases of vaccine damage. To simplify and centralize this legal requisite, federal health officials established the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — operated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Ideally, doctors would abide by this federal law and report adverse events following the administration of a vaccine. However, the FDA recently acknowledged that 90 percent of doctors do not report vaccine reactions. They are choosing to subvert this law by claiming the adverse event was, in their opinion, not related to the shot.”  (emphasis added)
Using the figures reported by sanevax.org, the actual number of adverse reactions following a HPV vaccination could be as high as 352,700.
What the Experts Say About the HPV Vaccines
In 2013, Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic et al., wrote an article/letter in response to an editorial written by Silvia de Sanjosé. The professionals made their opinions on the HPV vaccination abundantly clear.
Their abstract stated:
“The rationale behind current worldwide human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination programs starts from two basic premises, 1) that HPV vaccines will prevent cervical cancers and save lives and, 2) have no risk of serious side effects. Therefore, efforts should be made to get as many pre-adolescent girls vaccinated in order to decrease the burden of cervical cancer. Careful analysis of HPV vaccine pre- and post-licensure data shows however that both of these premises are at odds with factual evidence and are largely derived from significant misinterpretation of available data.”
“It is also noteworthy that Merck’s HPV vaccine Gardasil received priority Fast Track approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after a 6-month review process, despite the fact that it failed (and still continues to fail) to meet a single one of the four criteria required by the FDA for Fast Track approval. Gardasil is demonstrably neither safer nor more effective than Pap screening combined with the loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) in preventing cervical cancers, nor can it improve the diagnosis of serious cervical cancer outcomes.
In this regard, Gerhardus and Razum have recently noted that the ‘ … unwarranted confidence in the new [HPV] vaccines led to the impression that there was no need to actually evaluate their effectiveness.’”
I am sure many parents will agree that their words are extremely worrying; however, what her team uncovered about the safety and efficiency of the HPV vaccines is what I believe parents should be the most concerned about.
“Similarly, the notion that HPV vaccines have an impressive safety profile can only be supported by highly flawed design of safety trials and is contrary to accumulating evidence from vaccine safety surveillance databases and case reports which continue to link HPV vaccination to serious adverse outcomes (including death and permanent disabilities). For example, compared to all other vaccines in the U.S. vaccination schedule, Gardasil alone is associated with 61% of all serious adverse reactions (including 63.8% of all deaths and 81.2% cases of permanent disability) in females younger than 30 years of age.
Although a report to a vaccine safety surveillance system does not by itself prove that the vaccine caused an adverse reaction, the unusually high frequency of adverse reactions related to HPV vaccines reported worldwide, as well as their consistent pattern (i.e. nervous system-related disorders rank the highest in frequency), points to a potentially causal relationship. Furthermore, matching the data from vaccine surveillance databases is an increasing number of case reports documenting similar serious adverse reactions associated with HPV vaccine administration, with nervous system and autoimmune disorders being the most frequently reported in the medical literature.” 
Dr. Tomljenovic and her team are not alone in their concerns.
Gardasil Reported to Cause Blindness, Autoimmune Disease and Strokes
In 2010, Dr. David Clark, a Functional Neurologist made a short film entitled Gardasil HPV Vaccine Side Effects Story.
During the film, Dr. Clark stated that HPV vaccines can cause blindness, strokes and autoimmune diseases. He went on to explain that although vaccines are designed to stimulate the immune system, in some cases this can cause a catastrophic autoimmune attack on the body, the brain and the nervous system.
He stated that:
“There’s a lot of girls of all ages who are the walking wounded … the walking dead … all from this vaccine.”
Referring to a document written in the Journal of Child Neurology titled A 16-Year-Old Girl With Bilateral Visual Loss and Left Hemiparesis Following an Immunization Against Human Papilloma Virus,Clark stated that:
“It makes me very, very angry that this is crammed down people’s throats and the public doesn’t think about it.
And I don’t want to see any comments like, ‘Well, this is a rare reaction.’ No, it’s not. It’s not a rare reaction. It’s a very common reaction. There are thousands of women and girls that are suffering. This vaccine has bombarded their immune system and now they have to endure a lifetime of side effects.
See, autoimmune conditions are like a light switch being flipped on. You can’t just turn them off. That’s why my practice is full of people like this who can’t go anywhere else because no one else knows what to do with them.
So, I guess to get off my soapbox today, if you want to read this study it’s in The Journal of Child Neurology of this year and you can read it for yourself.” 
Taking his advice, I decided to read the study.
The study, written by Francis J. DiMario et al., described the case of a 16 year-old girl, who had presented to the emergency room (ER) with visual loss after receiving the Gardasil vaccination.
On examination, the doctors discovered that the previously healthy 16 year-old disclosed a visual acuity of only counting fingers bilaterally and a mild left side weakness which was accompanied by sensory loss at the site of vaccination.
Francis J. DiMario and his team stated:
“Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain showed swollen enhancement within the chiasm extending into both retrobulbar optic nerves and a right occipitoparietal lobe mass (later disclosed as tumefactive demyelination) with a large zone of surrounding vasogenic edema.”
In other words, the MRI scan revealed that the patient was suffering from swelling behind both eyes and a mass (tumefactive demyelination) pertaining to the right occipital lobe of the brain.
“It is possible that human papilloma virus was the precipitant for the demyelinating event in the patient presented here. It is tempting to speculate whether there may be a specific immune mechanism initiated with human papilloma virus not yet identified, which resulted in not only acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis but also in an unusual clinical course that resulted in persistent visual loss.” 
Whilst their paper did not identify any conclusive evidence that the 16 year-old suffered a visual loss as a direct result of receiving the Gardasil vaccine, their paper is not the only report of visual disturbances being attributed to Gardasil.
The National Vaccine Information Center and sanevax.org have also reported cases of severe visual disturbances after vaccination with Gardasil. 
More Evidence of Harm
In 2012, the British Medical Journal published a paper by Dr. Deidrie Little titled Premature Ovarian Failure 3 Years After Menarche in a 16 Year-Old Girl Following Human Papillomavirus Vaccination. In her paper, Dr. Little detailed the case of a 16 year-old girl who had suffered a premature menopause after receiving the Gardasil vaccination. Her summary stated:
“Premature ovarian failure in a well adolescent is a rare event. Its occurrence raises important questions about causation, which may signal other systemic concerns. This patient presented with amenorrhoea after identifying a change from her regular cycle to irregular and scant periods following vaccinations against human papillomavirus. She declined the oral contraceptives initially prescribed for amenorrhoea. The diagnostic tasks were to determine the reason for her secondary amenorrhoea and then to investigate for possible causes of the premature ovarian failure identified.
Although the cause is unknown in 90% of cases, the remaining chief identifiable causes of this condition were excluded. Premature ovarian failure was then notified as a possible adverse event following this vaccination. The young woman was counselled regarding preservation of bone density, reproductive implications and relevant follow-up. This event could hold potential implications for population health and prompts further inquiry.” 
As the BMJ charges a fee to read their articles, interested readers can find a report about her work and the case on Population Research Institute website. 
It is clear from the many reports that I have outlined, that the safety of Gardasil is in question. When you consider that Dr. Tomljenovic, a leading authority on vaccination safety, says that the Gardasil vaccination has failed (and still continues to fail) to meet a single one of the four criteria required by the FDA for Fast Track approval, it is easy to see why.
How many innocent children have to die before governments around the world sit up and take notice? How many children need to suffer blindness, autoimmune disease, strokes and paralysis as a result of HPV vaccines before our governments say no more?
Read the documents that I have referenced and see for yourself the endless list of serious adverse reactions listed by the National Vaccine Information Center and many others. Ask yourself: is the HPV vaccination and, more importantly, your child’s future health, really worth the risk?
