There have been no reports of any teen contracting cervical cancer from HPV ever – what you need to know about the Gardasil vaccine

Gardasil, the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) list of recommended inoculations for teenagers, has been the subject of debate worldwide since it was fast-tracked for approval in the US in 2006. The Merck-manufactured drug was developed to prevent infections caused by HPV, which is a group of 150 related viruses — 15 of which are linked to cervical cancer. At the heart of the controversies are questions around the need for the vaccine, the GardasilGirl.jpgefficacy of the vaccine and the fast-growing number of reports of severe reactions to the vaccine. The latter question has moved to the forefront of the debate as safety testing concerns have been raised and the number of vaccine-injured children has grown.

Gardasil- A Case of Insufficient Testing?

Despite no recorded outbreak of cervical cancer nor change in sexual behavioral risks among teenagers, Gardasil vaccine was studied for less than two years prior to its approval. This was particularly curious since the cancer the vaccine purports to prevent does not present itself for 20-30 years.

And, while the drug was tested only on women aged 16-23 before it became the first licensed HPV vaccine in the United States, today it is recommended for boys and girls as young as 10 years old.

Moreover, Gardasil was not tested on people with health problems nor in combination with all the other vaccines routinely administered to American adolescents, such as Tdap and meningococcal vaccines.

Although the CDC claims that sufficient testing has been done, The National Vaccine Information Center discovered the opposite from independent research on the combination of Gardasil and Menactra (a meningococcal vaccine), if given on the same day. Respiratory problem reports increased by 114%, cardiac problems by 118%, neuromuscular and coordination problems by 234%, convulsions by 301%, and injuries caused by falls after unconsciousness shot up by 674%.
