Gardasil & Swine Flu Vaccines: Inconvenient Truths
Posted: 8/24/2009 6:00:00 AM | with 26 comments


by Barbara Loe Fisher

    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; 1 and second, the H1N1 influenza pandemic is not as serious as health officials are telling us it is. 2 3 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. 4
 
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 5 and asked for more scientific evidence that universal HPV vaccination is necessary, safe and effective. 6
 
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. 7 8 9 Some girls have left doctors offices and fallen unconscious while driving and had car accidents. 10 This brings up the little known fact that four girls who got Gardasil in Merck’s pre-licensure clinical trials died in car accidents. 11 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.
 
Blood Clots Reports After Gardasil
 
      What else did the recently published government study on Gardasil reveal? Well, we now know that there is a greater than expected rate of reported blood clots in girls who get the vaccine. Some blood clots can lead to pulmonary embolism or stroke, which means the blood clot ends up in the lung or in the brain. In fact four girls have died after they developed a blood clot that traveled to the lung after Gardasil vaccination.

Most Bad Outcome Reports Merck Files FDA Can’t Analyze
    
  But the most shocking fact in this study is that, although nearly 70 percent of all Gardasil reaction reports were filed by Merck, a whopping 89 percent of the reports Merck did file were so incomplete there was not enough information for health officials to do a proper follow-up and review of what happened to the girls who fell unconscious or had convulsions, developed blood clots or inflammation of the brain and nerves, including Guillain Barre syndrome that causes paralysis, or those who suddenly developed serious autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and more.
 
      There were 32 reports of Gardasil-related deaths between 2006 and the end of 2008 but only 20 of these death reports had enough information to be followed up. There are now a total of 43 deaths that have been reported. 12 How many of those Gardasil related deaths cannot be evaluated because of incomplete information?

1986 Law Requires Reporting of Vaccine Injuries & Deaths
 
       This is an outrage. Under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, 13 it is a federal legal requirement for any person – a doctor, nurse or any person who gives a vaccination in America – to file a report with the federal government whenever a vaccination is followed by a bad health outcome, especially a hospitalization, injury or death. Vaccine providers are NOT supposed to be notifying the vaccine manufacturer – which clearly is like flushing the vaccine reaction report down the toilet – they are supposed to be notifying the government. And health officials at the FDA and CDC are supposed to be analyzing each and every report of a serious vaccine injury or death.
 
Massive Underreporting of Vaccine Bad Outcomes
 
        FDA and CDC officials admit that there is underreporting of vaccine-related bad health outcomes. In fact, some studies say that less than 10 percent or even less than 1 percent of serious vaccine adverse events are ever reported. 14 15

Closed Government Databases Used to Deny Vaccine Risks
 
    But health officials are quick to downplay the significance of this. They tell us not to worry because the closed government databases, which the CDC operates with vaccine manufacturers and HMO’s they pay to participate in them, can be relied upon to reassure us that all those seizures and blood clots and cases of brain inflammation, paralysis, lupus and deaths in girls who get Gardasil shots are really – mostly - just a coincidence.
 
        In 2005, the National Vaccine Information Center and other parent groups called on the CDC and FDA to open up those closed government vaccine monitoring databases to public scrutiny. 16 17 So far, most of that vaccine reaction data is still hidden from public view so it can’t be independently verified.
 
Will H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Risks Be Hidden From Public?

       If the government can let vaccine manufacturers fast track Gardasil vaccine 18 but can’t compel the drug company that makes the vaccine or doctors giving the vaccine - who are shielded from liability 19 - to report each and every death and serious injury that follows vaccination, why should we believe anything government health officials tell us about the safety of vaccines?
        Why should we believe that the experimental swine flu vaccines being fast tracked with only a few weeks of study in healthy children and adults 20 are going to be safe and that all vaccine reactions will be reported to the government and then properly followed up? 21

No Way To Monitor H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Side Effects In Schools
 
   It is far more likely that, when children get swine flu vaccine in schools and then get really sick or even die like the Gardasil girls, that all those bad health outcomes will be written off as a coincidence by health officials. That is, IF any reports are made to the government at all! Because few school nurses or other people giving children swine flu vaccines in the schools will be taking medical histories; or have a way to record vaccine information in children’s medical records, much less monitor children for signs of a vaccine reaction and then file a reaction report to the government.
 
        This is not the way to run a national vaccine program. This is not what we expect from doctors in positions of authority who have accepted responsibility for protecting our individual health or the health of our nation.

Doctors & Drug Companies Shielded From Liability Ignoring the Law
 
           In the early 1980’s, parents of DPT vaccine injured children worked very hard on getting informing, recording and reporting safety provisions of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. We wanted to make sure everything was being done to help prevent vaccine injuries and deaths. Little did we know then that those safety provisions would be blown off by doctors and vaccine manufacturers shielded from liability in that law. 22
 
    The federal vaccine safety provisions should be codified into every state vaccine law with legal sanctions for doctors and drug companies who fail to file a complete vaccine reaction report.

What Public Health Emergency?
 
      And now, today, we have swine flu vaccines that are being rushed to market 23 with even less testing that the fast tracked Gardasil vaccine had, with the justification that there is a public health emergency. 24 25 26 What public health emergency?
 
   As everyone knows by now, the swine flu is no more serious than the garden variety influenza that goes around every year. 27Just like everyone knows by now that most cervical cancer can be prevented with regular Pap screening and that the very expensive HPV vaccine is questionable at best. 28
 
        Why are we letting employees working for government agencies and pharmaceutical companies stampede us into taking vaccines that may not be necessary, safe or effective and – certainly - are not properly monitored for safety after they are given to tens of millions of children and adults?
 
     It is time to demand that government officials and drug companies stop conducting national vaccine experiments on the American people.

Thanks for all the work you have done over the years and thanks for this recent 10 minute video summarizing the dangers of the Gardasil and swine flu vaccines. This wednesday I will give a lecture I've done many times over the years on vaccination. I have been working to update it with the latest info on these two new dangers, but now I will simply include your video as part of the lecture. This will familiarize them with you and the wonderful resource NVIC is and empower them to do more on their own.

All the best

I just wanted you to know that I appreciate what you are doing. I'm sorry about your son. I have a friend who's son has autism and I am convinced that these shots caused it. The Amish have a vastly lower rate of Autism but they don't get those shots. Seems fairly obvious to me that there is a correlation.

I was immunized in the US Air Force in Fall of 1975. I got deathly ill and was bedridden for 2 weeks. I don't know everything they gave me or if it was a combination of the shots they gave me that was the cause but I have not had a flu shot since and glory be, I am still alive and only got the flu once since that time.

I do not trust the medical profession or the government when it comes to my body and never will no matter what tales they spin. My Grandfather died at 93. He had never taken a flu shot and after they gave him one a few weeks earlier he then died.

My son is still in high school and I told him that if the school suddenly one day says that he is to get a shot, he is to call me and leave the school immediately and I will come and get him. I will home school him or let him take the GED. I would rather he be a high school drop out than dead or hurt from these. It is getting ridiculous what the government is mandating to us regarding these shots. Have you seen the recent legislation in Massachusetts (sic?)?

I ran across this link today and thought you would be interested. It seems we have been down this path before in the past. Maybe I am over reacting or should join the tinfoil hat squad but it just sounds right to me and is quite believable. Anyway, here's the link. http://www.rense.com/general87/indu.htm

I will make a donation to your cause. I just need to search your website to find the info. You go girl! I wish you could get on the news but the powers that be will probably never let that happen. All the best to you and don't give up!!! You are doing great things and many of us appreciate your efforts mor than you may realize.

Elizabeth Cie, RN
From my petition to the President:
The fact is that there are hundreds of strains of HPV and only a handful might be protected against if a young girl is given the Gardasil vaccine.

In addition to requiring full and accurate disclosure from the Pharmaceutical companies regarding vaccines, I believe that their wide scale false advertising should be punishable by law. Any other false “medical/ medication television advertising should be outlawed as unethical unless the website of the National Vaccine Information Center is posted with a representative stating that for further information prior to receiving any vaccination "please review information provided".

Speaking of vaccinations, did you know that newborn babies transitioning to life outside of their mother's wombs experience dramatic changes within all of their body systems to the nth degree.

In US hospitals, they are routinely injected with the Hepatitis B vaccine during this vulnerable 24 hour period of "new human being" transition.

Hepatitis B is transmitted via sexual contact/bodily fluids and blood.

Which newborn is going to be having sex or come in significant contact with human blood?
It is unethical and unconscionable to be vaccinating newborns with the Hepatitis B vaccine.

Perhaps, just perhaps, this breech of a newly born human being's immune system, might be the reason for the staggering increases in diseases among American born citizens over the past 30-40 years.

You only have one chance to develop an immune system that is right after birth. Human milk and colostrum is nature's first and most important vaccination which happens to be FREE.

It protects the lining of the stomach and small intestine from which we receive over 60% of our immune cells.

Why do you think that the Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life? At that time in the life of a baby, she or he is ready to begin consuming mashed "adult" food. Six months of consuming only human mother's milk provides the baby human with astounding amounts of immunological protection against bacteria, viruses, etc...

At 6 months of age the baby human's stomach and small intestine cellular lining changes to form tight inter-cellular bonds that protect the baby's immune system against large sized molecules such as those present in formula (bovine, cow's milk proteins).

That lucky baby human whose mother chose to, was able to, was supported enough to, was informed about the how and why to breastfeed exclusively has a healthy "gut" and is ready to eat what we do. Not all women are lucky enough to have the kind of support and information it takes to make this happen. We as a nation are at fault.

If we take a good look and think about how our health has significantly taken a turn for the worse in all areas: autism, obesity, cardiac issues, cancer, Alzheimers, diabetes, allergies, asthma, depression etc... over the past 4 or so decades, we could correlate these issues with a change in what newborn babies were fed.

Formula companies overwhelmed medical doctor offices and hospitals with free formula bottles, telling physicians that it was better than human milk.... and we as a nation were hooked believing that it was "better" for our babies.

This falsehood is criminal and will cost us dearly in the amount of pain and suffering of the citizens of our country, not to mention the loss of trillions of dollars in health care costs. As a country we spend billions of dollars annually purchasing vitamins, antioxidants, supplements etc to strengthen our immune systems when we could have saved our children and still do so if we support new mothers and new parents by teaching about the undeniable value of feeding babies natural human milk as opposed to the artificial, allergy inducing formula we’ve been brainwashed to accept as the norm.

Everyone is worried about “saving the earth”. How about we begin to worry about saving the “human species”?

Please require signed informed consent from parents prior to the birth of their child regarding breastfeeding and vaccines.

For those who know families affected by autism there is a fabulous book and group of doctors, Dr. Kenneth Bock from Rhinebeck, NY in particular, who are helping kids recover from autism. Its astounding. His book, Healing the New Childhood Epidemics, autism, adhd, asthma, and allergies... its a must to pass on.

My daughter had 1 dose of Gardasil after recommendations from 3 different doctors. She passed out immediately following her injection. Luckily I caught her so she didnt fall & I drove her, so she was not injured. The nurses and staff at the public health department were not prepared for this reaction & her shot was given sitting upright. Even though this was a state funded organization, I found and filled out the VAER form myself & to my knowledge there was never any follow up. A couple weeks after the gardasil, my daughter also had an allergic reaction which required hospitalization & we are still unsure if it was the gardasil or an antibiotic she was on. All I know is she will never receive either again! I am sorry for your experiences but thank you for this information!

I'm so glad I came across this website while researching whether or not to allow my children to receive their upcoming H1N1 and seasonal flu shots at school! I was already leaning against it but now am convinced my instincts were correct. Since I am not a supporter of the current president or his administration, I have naturally become more wary of the govt. than I have been in the past.

I never realized what "fast-tracking" vaccines meant. And I have an 11-year old daughter that I had planned to have get the Guardisil vaccine. Think I'll pass now! I'm also forwarding your website information to my e-mail contacts! Thanks for all the valuable information.

I just recieved my 3rd Gardasil shot a week ago. It burns a little, but other then that I had no problems. I didn't hear about any trouble with it until this site, but I guess I could just be uninformed.
I haven't decided about the h1n1 yet. I agree it's over hyped and people are making a bigger stink of it then it is. We don't usually have a great deal of trouble with flu in my house so I don't know if I will bother. I might just sit back for a bit and observe others first.

Thanks for your info though.

It seems to me that nowadays many more people are starting to wake up to a startling truth, as another commenter has said, we have been led this path before, many, many times before.
We, in the non-medical community have been led to believe too often the claims of the pharmaceutical companies about how they work to protect and heal us, more often than not also by misinformed doctors that due to lack of time to actually conduct some basic research on their own, also buy into the lies of big pharmam particularly when this comes in the form of approved or recommended by FDA and CDC.
More startling so is the fact the even the CDC and FDA either do not have all the facts or believe in the half truths from the pharmaceuticals and don't seem to even care about that they do not have all the data to make an informed decision. Congress also shares in this responsibility as they have failed to uphold their oath to represent the best interest of their constituents since they been bought through constant lobbying by the pharmaceutical and insurance industries (the later spend half a billion every year lobbying congress instead of using those funds to pay some of the claims they constantly deny).
As long as you do not follow blind what main stream media says and do your own research on the matter you will be ahead of the curve, you will have defeated the herd mentality agenda. Guess what? main stream media will convey the message of their advertisers, not what is good for you but what is good for their advertisers, otherwise it would be hard for them to stay in business. If you closely watch the advertisement on tv or printed media, or any mainstream media, you'll note that half of it is either paid for by big pharma or by some kind of insurance company, and not much behind the banking industry. You'll be better off and better informed if you do your own research, listen or read independent media, look for sites as this one for scientifically backed information, and practice what we fail to do more often which is conscious discernment.
I wish you all the best and may the truth continue to be brought forward and centerstage.

My daughter is 19 she had her first Guardicil shot a few months ago along with the Mengitis and Tetnus all at the same time. She walked out to the window to make another appt. she started to pass out they had to drag her back to the room and let it pass she went home that day and slept for hours. Woke up the next day ok.. Thankfully. Ive always been terrified of giving my children their childhood shots. I look at it like this here is this tiny child 6 weeks of age and you injecting stuff into thier bodies. Well my daughter is due for her second shot and Im going to do anything I can to convince her not to do it.
As goes for the H1N1 I wont do that one either Ive actually started online schooling my first grader because of it she gets sick constantly at school Im afraid if shes already sick with something else then gets H1N1 its going to awful. Ive had her out of school since early Nov. shes not been sick once THANKFULLY!! Ive bought them vitamins with lots of D and giving them OJ and Milk and fruits n veggies high in calcium and D
(hand sanitizers and washing hands as much as possible whipes what ever it takes I have it all in my van for outings. I even use clorox wipes on shopping carts) I have heard that people with Low vit. D tends to increase you for getting the flu. I guess we are doing the best we can with what we have. We just arent as informed as we should be its really sad.

My strong healthy hyperactive 35year (not underweight, not overweight) 35 old wife had the first shot of Cervarix (Gardasil equiv) in mid Jan 2010 and is having a severe reaction since then. This vaccine really messes up the metabolism and the immune system. This is what she suffered:

Dizzyness, frequent headache, joint pain, frequent fever, throat infection, dry upper/inner mouth, flutters in ear, severe weakness, irregular and messed up period and most importantly (this was the clue) massive loss of body fat in a very short period of time. The skin of her hands started shriveling like an old woman (hint: sub-cutaneous fat). Dry skin and mild rashes all over. She was so weakened that she was almost bedridden for a few days.

Good thing is that now she is regaining strength and on the way to recovery. This is what we and our good family physician (specialist in Internal medicine and gastro-entr) had to do.

1. MUST: Don't eat any wheat products. Eat rice instead. Stop any form of dieting and go to full nourishing meals.
2. Drink lots of water, 4 glasses of fresh fruit juice every day. Drink coconut water if you can get it.
3. Lots of butter, yogurt, curd, full-cream milk, fish. Have two country chicken/duck eggs everyday
4. MUST: A good multivitamin, specially vitamin B-Complex syrup (Polybion) 3 times a day
5. Plenty of vegetables, specially carrots and beet-root (semi-boiled)
6. Try to maintain basic physical activities but do not exert. Take good rest.
7. Eat fish
8. Sesame seed paste (mix with milk shake/yogurt)
9. MUST: Have this "muscle builder" supplement 3 times a day for 5 days (no more): "Carnitin Ornitate" (may be available under different brands).
10. Get a good protein supplement with essential amino acids.

According to our doctor, the full recovery would take a month or two.

This post may help others to cope with the after effects. The treatment may already be known to many doctors but I could not find any on the net. Hence the posting.

Always consult a "really good expert" specializing in Internal Medicine and Immunology. I mean the type of doctors (a rarity these days) who have not yet lost their brains (and heart), who try to understand things in terms of the underlying body chemistry and keep themselves updated with research and open issues. If you think the doctor is not paying attention to the effects/suffering and is dismissing you after routine stuff, change the doctor immediately. He/she probably does not know any more than what has been spoon-fed by the Merck/GSK sales folks.

And when you recover, get together with others and sue the living daylights out of GSK and Merck. I am very sure they fudged/cooked their clinical trial reports or what they tried is not what they are selling. Enron of medicine? Why not. The vaccine may or may not be effective against HPVs (time will tell) but the way they have set the dose and the turbo-charged it with the adjuvents, definitely does not suit all human beings.

PS. If your body already shows such a violent reaction, do not go for the next injections. Your immune system will remember this viral-protein till you die at a ripe old age.

Although I too, am unsure of the HPV vaccine, please correct your wording. A Pap smear can NEVER PREVENT HPV, it is simply a screening tool.

Hey, Sharon - she never said that a Pap Smear would prevent HPV, she said it could prevent cervical cancer! A Pap Smear is a screening tool that will show you the abnormal cells, etc - cervical cancer is very slow growing, so a Pap Smear can help catch the presence of HPV and lead you to take the steps to prevent cervical cancer naturally.

"Just like everyone knows by now that most cervical cancer can be prevented with regular Pap screening and that the very expensive HPV vaccine is questionable at best. 28"

Thank goodness for the steadfast work of the NVIC and Barbara Loe-Fisher. I interviewed Barbara 2 weeks ago for my documentary in production called The Trouble With Boys. Please forgive me for veering slightly off-track from our course of conversation here; but if you'd like to take a part in helping the completion of the project, please check it out (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1767669208/the-trouble-with-boys). Thank you very much. Kind regards, RB

I suspected this was a bad thing! Thank goodness my kids were already grown and never got it. Thanks for sharing the information. I will too.
