Mrs. Mary Harney,
Minister for Health,
Department of Health and Children,
The Gardasil vaccination programme in our schools
commenced in May/June 2010 and is due to be resumed this month, September. Mothers
HSE says that “vaccination is less effective in females who have already been
infected with one or more of the HPV vaccine types” they fail to inform parents
and the general public that, in its report to the Food and Drugs Authority, a
federal body in the U.S.A., Merck expressed ‘concern’ regarding the
administration of its own vaccine to girls who are already infected with 2
strains of the human papilloma virus, namely strains 16 and 18. In that
report, it is indicated that if the cervical cancer vaccine was
administered to such girls, it could increase their risk of developing cervical
cancer by 44.6 percent. See page 13 of Merck’s Gardasil clinical
trials report:VRBPAC Background Document Gardasil™ HPV Quadrivalent Vaccine May
18, 2006 VRBPAC Meeting.
Media reports, for many years now, have been informing us that 12
year olds in
truth that the HSE should put more emphasis on is the fact that while many
people are infected with HPV at least once during their lifetime, 95% of all HPV
infections are cleared spontaneously by the body’s immune system. There is ample time to treat the
remaining 5% with pap screening, and effect 100% cure. (
· The HSE also claims Gardasil is very safe. This is also dangerous and untrue. Serious adverse events, including deaths, are associated with Gardasil use. Parents have not been told this by the HSE, and nowhere as far as we can determine, does the HSE’s campaign literature state that deaths are associated with the vaccine. 77 deaths and over 19,000 adverse reactions have been reported to VAERS, the official US Government agency responsible for tracking vaccine adverse reactions.
· HSE states that there may be some mild side effects. This is very misleading language as the HIQA report says “Mild-to-moderate local reactions in up to 90% of recipients have been reported.” The HSE states that “rarer side effects include an itchy rash or hives”. Yet, the HIQA Report says that headache, fatique, gastrointestinal upset and rash occurred in 69% to 86% of recipients. How can the HSE say that 69% to 86% is a rare occurrence? HIQA also refers to a possible association between Gardasil and Guillian-Barre Syndrome and DEATHS. (HIQA Report p.32 3.8 Vaccine Safety.) The direct association has not yet been proven but neither has it been ‘not proven’. The jury is still out. Yet the HSE has failed to alert parents to these facts.
We feel it is also important to point out that Table 14 of the HIQA Report, which estimates the number of cases of CIN1, CIN2/3 and cervical cancers that would averted due to vaccination, is based on false and redundant assumptions. It is redundant and must be discounted as it is based on 2004 figures. With the roll out of the national cervical cancer screening programme on 28th September, 2008 – seven months after the HIQA Report was completed and four years later than 2004 – future cervical cancer mortality estimates will be reduced drastically by 75-80%. [Screening has a 95% pre-cancer detection rate]. It is patently clear that Table 14 is outdated and can no longer be relied on.
Critical information has been withheld from parents and the public and the lives of our children are being put at risk.
