In a recent press release commemorating the 5-year anniversary of the Japanese Government suspending its recommendation of the HPV vaccine, the National Attorneys Association for the HPV Vaccines Lawsuits called upon the Japanese Government to ban the HPV vaccine completely. This is the type of news that is routinely censored in the corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media in the United States. The fact that there is a national organization of attorneys litigating against one specific vaccine and the injuries it is causing, is itself newsworthy. The vaccine manufacturers who are being sued in Japan, GlaxoSmithKline PLC and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., enjoy 100% legal immunity in the United States, due to the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Act. We must look outside of the U.S., therefore, to learn about just how devastating Gardasil and the HPV vaccine is, as the National Association for the HPV Vaccines Lawsuits reports: "Compared to other routine vaccinations, an average of over seven times the number of serious adverse effects per one million HPV vaccinations have been reported, and the number of disability certifications by the Adverse Drug Reaction Relief System is almost ten times higher."
Texas Mom Blamed for 4-Month-Old Daughter’s Accidental Gardasil Vaccine Injury – Loses Parental Rights
A Texas jury decided Thursday afternoon, June 21, to terminate the parental rights of a mother whose 4-month-old baby was injected with the Gardasil-9 vaccine in error. Anita Vasquez is devastated. She and her friends and supporters are shocked that this could happen. Instead of doctors and social workers considering the possibility that the symptoms her daughter, Aniya Blu Vasquez, experienced could be related to the vaccine that is not approved for children under 9-years-of-age, Anita was blamed, and her daughter was taken from her by Child Protective Services (CPS). Anita tells us that there was important information that the jury did not hear before making their decision. There were things that she believes her attorney should have presented but did not. For example, only doctors who believed that there were no side effects from the Gardasil vaccine were allowed to testify.
Mother Faces Jury Trial As Texas Seeks to Terminate Her Parental Rights Over Daughter Injured by Gardasil Vaccine
A trial began this week for a mother who was separated from her baby after the 4-month-old mistakenly received a Gardasil-9 vaccine intended for her older brother. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services seeks to convince a jury to terminate the parental rights of Anita Vasquez for her now 22-month-old daughter, Aniya Blu Vasquez. Jury selection began on Monday, June 18, 2018, for the trial which is expected to last up to 2 weeks. We originally reported their story in June of last year. The previously healthy baby, Aniya, began showing symptoms of problems almost immediately after getting the Gardasil shot, a vaccine which is not approved for use in children under 10 years of age. Her mother sought medical attention for the symptoms that her daughter exhibited, asking each practitioner about the connection between the symptoms and the Gardasil-9 shot that her baby should not have received, but her concerns were rebuffed at every turn. No doctor that saw her daughter wanted to admit that the vaccine could have any kind of side effects. The doctor who made a medical error in giving her the vaccine has suffered no consequences, but the baby's family has been ripped apart, as the mother is being blamed for her daughter's medical condition.
A major study has just been published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health looking at declining fertility rates among eight million U.S. women aged 25 to 29 during a 7-year period. The title of study, published by Gayle DeLong, Ph.D., from the Department of Economics and Finance, Baruch College/City University of New York, is "A lowered probability of pregnancy in females in the USA aged 25–29 who received a human papillomavirus vaccine injection." From the abstract: "This study analyzed information gathered in National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which represented 8 million 25-to-29-year-old women residing in the United States between 2007 and 2014. Approximately 60% of women who did not receive the HPV vaccine had been pregnant at least once, whereas only 35% of women who were exposed to the vaccine had conceived. Using logistic regression to analyze the data, the probability of having been pregnant was estimated for females who received an HPV vaccine compared with females who did not receive the shot. Results suggest that females who received the HPV shot were less likely to have ever been pregnant than women in the same age group who did not receive the shot. If 100% of females in this study had received the HPV vaccine, data suggest the number of women having ever conceived would have fallen by 2 million."
Gardasil: The Decision We Will Always Regret – 7 Years Later – Finding A Long and Never-ending Path to Healing
In February of 2015, Kim Robinson reached out to us to see if we would publish her daughter's story about Gardasil vaccine injuries. It was originally published on SaneVax.org. We had published many stories of Gardasil vaccine injuries before that time, and we have published many since that time. Some of the stories we have published have been very heart-breaking, with some, tragically, ending in death. Yet for some reason, that probably nobody can completely explain, Kim's daughter, Katie, became the "poster child" for the many thousands of Gardasil vaccine injury stories. Her story, published just on the Health Impact News network, has been shared on Facebook over 5 million times over the years, besides all the other social media outlets and other websites where her story appears. So it is with great joy that Health Impact News now publishes Kim Robinson's 7-year follow-up report on her daughter, Katie, just as she graduates from High School this year, showing that with lots of love and hard work, a path to healing is possible. Kim writes: "When my husband and I look back at our lives before Gardasil, it seems dreamlike. We were living our American Dream. We were married, had good jobs, bought a home to raise our two healthy kids in and were leading a vibrant family life. That was until September 2, 2010, when we took our daughter to the Pediatrician and consented to the administration of a vaccine we knew nothing about. Everything changed that day and the damage from one jab of Gardasil almost cost us every part of our American Dream including the life of our precious daughter. The funny thing is that I am a paralegal. I research EVERYTHING before making a purchase or before making important choices especially decisions that affect my children. In hindsight, we can’t imagine why, but we never thought about researching a vaccine. All we knew about vaccines was what we now recognize as well derived marketing slogans such as 'vaccines are safe and effective' or 'vaccines save lives.' Every day, we wish we would have heard just one warning so that we could have saved our precious daughter from years of suffering and quite possibly a lifetime of health issues."
Last month (May, 2018) we published a report from the vaccine marketing trade publication, Fierce Pharma, that Merck's sales this year were beating financial forecasts, primarily due to its entrance into the China market for its top-selling Gardasil HPV vaccine. Fierce Pharma reported at that time that the Gardasil vaccine was fast-tracked for approval into the China market: "Late last month, the Chinese FDA granted Gardasil 9 a conditional approval only nine days into a review." Now, Fierce Pharma is reporting that Gardasil's acceptance into the China market has produced instant billionaires.
In Japan, young women and girls suffering from severe chronic generalized pain following vaccination with Merck’s Gardasil® or GSK’s Cervarix®, have organized and are speaking out. The issues are being debated at public hearings, at which scientific presentations have been made by independent medical experts who validated the women’s suffering with documented evidence of the severe nature of the pain related to the HPV vaccine. Such public debates do not take place where vaccine stakeholders are in full control of vaccine safety information. (Like in the U.S., for example.) Following a public hearing (February 2014), at which scientific evidence was presented by independent scientists, the Japanese government, not only rescinded its recommendation that girls receive the HPV vaccine, but established guidelines and special clinics for evaluating and treating illnesses caused by the vaccine. It is a scenario that Merck, GSK, and vaccine stakeholders globally are extremely anxious to suppress.
The pharmaceutical marketing trade publication, Fierce Pharma, announced this month (May 2018) that Merck has beat Wall Street expectations for their Gardasil vaccine sales during the first quarter of 2018, achieving 24% growth with $660 million for the HPV vaccine. The report notes that sales in the U.S. are declining, attributing the decline in sales to the CDC decision to reduce their recommendation of the Gardasil vaccine to be only two doses, instead of three. Nothing is mentioned about declining public opinion regarding Gardasil, nor the numerous lawsuits against the company outside the U.S. The increase in sales for Gardasil is attributed to their entrance into the China market. The original vaccine won Chinese approval last year, while late last month the Chinese FDA granted Gardasil 9 a conditional approval only nine days into a review.
It is no secret that huge conflicts of interest exist between vaccine promoters and vaccine makers. Pediatrician and vaccine developer Paul Offit, for example, who is one of the nation’s leading promoters of mandatory use of government recommended vaccines, holds a $1.5 million research chair at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, funded in part by Merck. Julie Gerberding left her post as Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), where she oversaw the creation of national vaccine policies, to head Merck vaccines. Former Texas governor Rick Perry recommended state-wide inoculation of all 11- and 12-year-old girls with Merck’s Gardasil vaccine after his chief of staff left to work at Merck. Just as disturbing are the millions of dollars that officials at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) dole out to academic institutions and vaccine manufacturers to improve vaccine technology, find new, lucrative markets and boost vaccine marketability—functions that guarantee the profitability of corporations, but do not always ensure the well being of taxpayers, the public and patients. Today, taxpayer-supported research to develop new drugs and vaccines is voraciously patented by universities and drug companies for outsized Wall Street profits when the research rightfully belongs to taxpayers. Development of the human papillomavirus (HPV) Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines is a case in point. The initial research was funded by the NIH, National Cancer Institute, University of Rochester, Georgetown University and the University of Queensland, which licensed them to Merck and GlaxoSmithKline. In 2015, Merck made $1.9 billion on its Gardasil franchise.
Dr. Brian Hooker Addresses Protest Crowd in N.Y. as Former CDC Director Who Approved Gardasil Vaccine is Named “Woman of the Year”
As we have previously reported here at Health Impact News, former CDC director, Dr. Julie Gerberding, has been referred to as either "one of the most evil people in medicine today" or the Healthcare Businesswomen's "Woman of the Year." A crowd gathered in New York City to protest the Healthcare Businesswomen's award, and Dr. Brian Hooker, who has spent many years of his life uncovering corruption at the CDC, addressed the crowd. He talked about the conversations he had with CDC whistleblower, Dr. Willliam Thompson, who worked with Dr. Gerberding during the years she served as the Director of the CDC, when the Gardasil vaccine was approved.
