Re: “Health professionals tell Allegheny County to make HPV vaccine mandatory

Funny, I spoke at this forum as well, but Ms. Murray didn't mention my comments at all. This is what I said:

This vaccine has been on the market just under 10 years. Yet there have already been 5,749 reports to “VAERS” (the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) of serious adverse events following this vaccine.

Since this reporting system is actually a voluntary one, we do know that many such reactions go unreported.

 Those 5,749 report do not refer to a sore arm. “Serious” refers to things like major neurological or autoimmune or allergic adverse reaction.

I did a search on VAERS and found the following reports of adverse events associated with HPV vaccines:

I found 1708 reports of convulsions associated with HPV vaccines and reports of 119 Seizures, which are apparently different from convulsions, as they are filed under a different code number.

There were also:

38 reports of tonic convulsions
19 reports of clonic convulsions
202 reports tonic clonic movements
27 reports encephalopathy
10 reports of encephalomyelitis
22 reports meningitis
10 reports of aseptic meningitis
and 172 reports of Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which causes paralysis and can be fatal, as well as
261 reports of DEATH.

ALL associated with HPV vaccination.

I also learned that in the pre-licensure safety testing of HPV vaccines, out of 11,004 “placebos” used, only 594 MAY have been actually a saline placebo. It’s also been described as a “non-alum carrier solution.” The remaining 10,410 subjects were actually given as “placebo” an injection of
aluminum hydroxide sulfate, which is the vaccine ingredient whose function is to elicit a stronger immune response.

All reports of adverse events from the test vaccine were listed as “as compared to placebo.”

We’re also not told why nearly twice as many test subjects receiving the actual vaccine withdrew from the study before it was done, as compared to the “placebo” group.

I’d like to remind everyone here that HPV vaccine is not an “anti-cancer vaccine.” It’s a vaccine against VENEREAL WARTS. These venereal warts may be associated with cancer, but they have never been shown to CAUSE cancer.

Cervical cancer, according to the CDC, can take 20-50 years to develop. 95% of women who are infected by HPV clear it from their system with no further issues, and do not develop cancer.

So all we can say is that HPV is associated with cancer. If it caused cervical cancer, it would cause it in everyone. 

So let’s please approach the idea of requiring this vaccine with an abundance of caution, and wait until some REAL SCIENCE—using real placebos, and independent of the manufacturers.

While some of the speakers who spoke after I did, and after Dr. Lyons-Weiler and Ms. Rafferty, did indeed contradict our assertions, not one of them provided any proof that our arguments were in any way mistaken or incorrect.

I'd like to point out here that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is the ONLY reporting system we have. One of the doctors who spoke after me suggested that we dismiss it--and therefore ALL reports of severe adverse events following vaccination--because it's a voluntary reporting system.

Think about that.
