Those who have died following Gardasil vaccination

Jenny Tetlock (California – Northern) was a 15-year-old girl battling a rapidly degenerative neurological disease that some MDs think MAY be linked to the HPV vaccine she received shortly before her first symptoms appeared. (There is no scientific proof one way or the other but Dr Diane Harper, leading researcher who helped design and carry out Phase II and Phase III safety and effectiveness studies to get Gardasil approved and acted as a consultant to Merck, believes that the possibility of a  ‘triggering of a genetic disorder within a family has to be considered seriously”.
Jenny passed away on March 15, 2009 surrounded by her family.
Jenny’s Journey gives more details of the events surrounding this young girl’s sudden illness following her Gardasil vaccination.

moshella-robertsMoshella Roberts, 20, a student from Fayetteville State University, Fayetteville, (Carolina – North) . She died from the Gardasil vaccination, her first day on the job at Trinity Home Care, April 5, 2008. Shelly appeared to have died in her sleep while on the job that morning.
Shelly was a funny, quiet and easy-going person. Although she had a ’laid back’ personality, she loved to help other people. In her spare time, she enjoyed doing hair and spending time with family and friends. In High School she was a varsity cheerleader, an active volunteer for her community (Special Olympics, make-up artist for a major play, and various town functions) and she received her C.N.A, all while maintaining a honor status. She received her post-secondary education at Fayetteville State University, majoring in psychology.
During her sophomore year, she sought employment through a home health care agency, and suddenly died at her first day on the job, coincidentally four days after receiving the Gardasil vaccine.

brooke-petkeviciusBrooke Petkevicius (Florida) who was 19 when she died while at the University of California, Berkeley where she studied social work and was involved in many extracurricular activities including co-ed volleyball and ballroom dancing. She played on an intramural volleyball team, went to kickboxing classes. She also was a social welfare major. She died 14 days after her first dose of Gardasil from a pulmonary embolism or blood clot on March 26th, 2007. There is no family history of this.

Brooke’s story: “Brooke did not smoke,” said her school friend, Megan Sedowski. “She was possibly one of the healthiest people I’ve ever met. She never did drugs and rarely drank alcohol. She worked out daily, and took a lot of classes at the gym. She never complained about anything, really, certainly not her health. She was an amazing, upbeat, caring, healthy young woman and her death was a complete shock.” Brooke had dressed to go running with a friend because they were training for a half-marathon. She walked to the elevator, collapsed against the wall and had a seizure. Brooke was rushed to the hospital and passed away.

Brooke never had any problems with blood clots, nor did her family have any history of clotting problems. Subsequent tests of her younger sister and her mother showed nothing genetic. Brooke had no allergies, no tobacco use, and no past substance abuse problems. Drug tests came back negative. Cynthia Janak, who wrote this piece on Brooke, spoke to all her family. They told her what a wonderful, kind-hearted young woman she was. She had dreams and aspirations for her future and how her laughter was contagious and how her smile lit up a room. This was a girl who had it hard growing up, as many of us, but became a stronger person for it. The phrase Cynthia likes to use is “she took sour grapes and made fine wine.”

christina-tarsellChristina Richelle Tarsell (Sparks, Maryland). Chris was a girl on the go; a girl with a vision. She loved being at Bard College where she was an honor student. She loved studio art, philosophy, the tennis team, visits to New York City and hanging out with her caring, fun-loving friends. She was generous, compassionate and always gave back to others. Between her junior and senior years, Chris had a summer job working at the college art museum while living with classmates in a house in Tivoli, NY. So after a short visit home to Maryland, Chris returned to Bard and her job on June 13, 2008. During the visit home, on June 3rd, Chris had gotten her third shot of Gardasil. A few days later, Chris complained of feeling dizzy, tired and she developed a rash on her neck. She had a post-vaccine cough and sinus congestion that wouldn’t go away. We were never told of any side effects to Gardasil so we did not know these signs were significant. Chris was found dead in her bed 18 days after her third shot. What could have happened? Chris was always a healthy, wholesome girl, a non-smoker, an athlete. She didn’t take drugs or medication. As of this writing, the cause is “undetermined”. Further investigation suggests that Chris, like other girls who died following Gardasil, may have had an autoimmune related response triggered by the vaccine. The CDC wants you to dismiss them as “coincidences,” while our beautiful, innocent daughters die needlessly.

amber-kaufmanAmber Kaufman (St Louis, Missouri) was a perfectly healthy 16 year old teenage girl who collapsed on her way into work with a seizure and her heart then stopped. Amber played volleyball, track, bowled and loved hanging out with her boyfriend, family and friends. She was up beat fun and loved life. She was the last in the nest, she was my best friend. She looked forward to joining the military like her older brother and sister. Her cause of death was listed as “cardiac disturbance of undetermined etiology.”

Amber’s story – March 31st 2008, Amber went to the doctor for a sore throat and at the same time she was administered her second shot of Gardasil, she also had a shot of Rocephin and was put on Erythromycin (Z pack). Being her mom, I asked if she should have the shot since she was sick and her nurse practitioner said it would be no problem. She was also in the middle of her menstrual cycle when she received this shot. She stayed home from school a couple of days as she complained of headaches, being tired and slept a lot.

I attributed it to her illness. She went to school on 4/3/08. Amber was on her way to work after school and I was on my way home, she called to let me know that the road to our house was closed due to water. That was the last time I ever talked to her, about 15 minutes later I got a call from her work saying she had collapsed on her way into work. I live only a few blocks from where she works. When I arrived they were just getting ready to start CPR. Amber was taken to the hospital about 15 minutes away, they did not get a heart beat until they reached the emergency room. She was transferred to St. Louis Children’s Hospital where she did not come off life support. Her brain had swelled and without a breathing tube or tube feeding she would not be able to live, she was brain dead. Amber was an organ donor on April 7, 2008. I sat at her head in the surgery room while they removed her breathing tube, she tried breathing for a while, I’m the one that had to tell her to go and to just be at peace and I was with her at the end. No mother should have to do that for her child, it was the hardest thing I have ever done or ever will do in my life! I am so glad my Amber saved at least five other lives. I get up every day because I know she would want me to let others know not to get this vaccine to prevent this from happening to any other young woman or mom.

megan-hildMegan Hild (Los Lunas, New Mexico) (died aged 20 in November 2008)
Megan loved children especially her nieces and nephew. Her family was her life and she never missed an opportunity to spend time with them. She especially liked to be at home just hanging out with family and friends. Megan was a student at CNM working towards her Associates degree in radiology and general studies. Megan’s beautiful smile will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
She was a very healthy and happy young lady and loved going to college.
Here is an excerpt of an email from her mother.

“On her death certificate it will read, Cause of death unknown. She’s my daughter and I loved her!!!! I will never see her graduate college. I will never see her wear a wedding dress and hold her babies in her arms.

Other information about Megan: Symptoms – rash “severe stomach pains” “severe headaches/migraines” “extreme fatigue” vaginal bleeding. Her mother Karen adds this additional comment: “We have a sixteen year old son who says, “life does not matter, what you do in life does not matter”. This is how this vaccine has changed our family’s life forever! Megan was 20, happy and healthy. She was attending College with a promise of marriage after graduation. She held her life in the palm of her hand.

Now all this family has is a certificate with an unexplained cause of death on it. Something that was to protect her health may have taken her life. There needs to be an investigation right away before more young women are injured, or worse, die. Please do not allow another family to have to live the life we have been made to live.”

santana-valdezSantana G. Valdez (Albuquerque, New Mexico)
She was beautiful, sweet, kind and always thinking of others first. She loved kids and was always surrounded by them. She helped teach catechism at San Martin de Porres Church. She had just graduated from Nuestros Valores High School. Because of a great personality, she had many friends. Not only was she my daughter, she was my best friend. We did everything together. I miss her and that beautiful smile of hers. She always believed in Angels and that they take care of us. Well, I know for sure she made it to Heaven because the morning of her rosary, a hummingbird was inside our house. It let us catch it and when we released it, it looked at all three of us and flew straight up into the sky. She had to come to let her Mom know that she was okay. She died August 31, 2007 at the tender age of 18 years old. She just went to bed normally and never woke up. Autopsy and toxicology show nothing. Her heart and liver were a little enlarged. Death certificate says she died of natural causes but inconclusive due to toxicology and autopsy reports.
Santana’s autopsy report did say that the pathologist had found the papillomatosis in her airways. Is there a possibility that Santana had Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP) which causes wart-like growths in the airway passages caused by the human papilloma virus? These growths usually form on the vocal folds, causing a voice disorder. Just before my daughter’s death I noticed strange breathing and a whistling noise which is very significant. If this condition had been there months earlier I would have noticed this change in my daughter’s breathing noises and even swallowing difficulties. However, this is not the case, I only noticed it after her Gardasil vaccination and before she died.

jessica-ericzonJessica Ericzon (Alexandria Bay, New York)
(Died February 22, 2008 – age 17)
I guess I will start with Jessie’s first Doctor’s visit where we went because of Jessie’s acne. She had heard that sometimes birth control pills did wonders for acne. So in April of 2007 we went to the Family doctor. At this appointment she was put on the birth control pill Yazmin. Her Doctor did mention the Gardasil vaccine and what it was for, but they didn’t push it at all. Jessie and I decided that we would take the pamphlet home and read it first, before we made a decision. On July 16, 2007 we went back to the Doctor for a re-check on her progress with the birth control pill and her acne which was clearing up quite nicely. We decided then to go ahead with her first Gardasil vaccination. I thought I was doing the best for Jessie, I mean who wouldn’t want to do everything they could to prevent any kind of cancer when it came to their kids. Side effects were discussed and it was the usual nausea, fever, headache, same as if you were to get a flu shot. If I had known at the time that there was even the slightest chance of death, I would have never allowed Jess to have the shot. There were no side effects after her first shot. We went in on September 17, 2007 for her second vaccination. The only complaint that she had was that it hurt to get the shot. I’m not sure when Jessie started complaining about her head hurting, plus she was always tired and her joints ached. She even felt dizzy once in a while. I did write in my diary on October 23, 2007 that she complained of a very severe headache. She spoke once in awhile of a spot on the back of her head that bothered her. She felt like it was a tumor, but I felt nothing when I checked. On November 20, 2007 I took her to the same family Doctor who prescribed her 2 previous vaccinations to check on why she could be having these headaches. He felt nothing and said it may be due to stress that she is having headaches and she was to take some Tylenol when needed. At no point in this conversation did side effects and Gardasil come up, it didn’t occur to me or obviously the Doctor that Gardasil could have anything to do with it. After that visit she was still tired and her joints still ached and a few headaches here and there, I attributed the joint ache to Cheerleading as she was a base and did a lot of lifting. In February 2008, 18th-24th, Jessie was on a winter break from school, but she did take Distance Learning Classes thru the local community college. A few days that week Jess went to her school to practice pitching for the upcoming softball season. She loved to pitch and practiced as much as she could. On February 20, about 5pm Jess had her 3rd Gardasil vaccination and everything was fine until the night before she died, when Jess and I were sitting on the couch playing a Sudoku game on her laptop, Jessie said the spot on the back of her head hurt again. I told her to take a couple of Tylenol and hopefully she would feel better in the morning. At 9pm I kissed her goodnight and told her I loved her and went to bed. My other half Tim and I work at the same hospital so we left at about 5:10 that Friday morning February 22, 2008 and Jess was sleeping as usual. When we got home from work around 3:20 pm, I found Jessie dead on the bathroom floor. The shock to my body and brain are nothing I ever want to experience again. Although I relive them everyday of my life now. I see the blue of her eyes which were open slightly as if she were watching me as I lay on the bathroom floor with her knowing there was nothing I could do for her. When the troopers showed up Tim said I did mention the fact that Jessie had the Gardasil vaccination although I don’t remember. I do remember telling someone about the pain in the back of her head before she went to bed. The next morning the Medical Examiner, Dr Livingstone called me to tell me they found no reason for Jessie’s death. He said she was dead before she hit the floor. I do remember telling him about the 3rd Gardasil vaccination she had just had not 2 days ago. He said that he had not heard of any negative findings with Gardasil. After that Tim went home (as we were staying with my dad across the road) and Googled Gardasil. The information that came up was devastating to me. I felt I had killed my daughter. I will stop here because the rest is basically much grief and much research. Respectfully,
Lisa Ericzon.

Lisa Ericzon would also like to add: “Losing your daughter at the age of 17 is indescribable. It is something that I will live with for the rest of my life. Knowing that it could have been prevented is a guilt I will carry also. Jessie was the All American teenager – happy, healthy, never did drugs or smoked. She was so full of everything life could offer her and did everything life would allow. She participated in all the sports and cheer leading in her school. Jess was an honor student and #8 in her class. I could go on and on because she was someone who I was ALWAYS proud to call my daughter. She was the best of the best and was on the road to becoming a success story in today’s world. Now she is gone and my life is empty without her.”
“Gardasil killed my daughter Jessie and it is my hope that Gardasil will end soon, so no other family has to suffer with losing their daughter.”

European Gardasil Death

jasmine-soriatJasmin Soriat (Germany)
04.14.1988 – 10.12.2007
The 19-year-old succumbed to respiratory paralysis after she was vaccinated against HPV. “She was fit, happy and fun-loving. She never had any serious illnesses, had no lung disease, and she never smoked. There were also previously never problems with vaccinations.”

The last night:

Meticulously the parents have reconstructed the final hours of Jasmin: “She was at a concert a Spanish band, before midnight she was at a fast food restaurant, then drove with her flatmate home by taxi to Döbling. Two o’clock in the morning drank some tea. Her girlfriend came by to check up on her the next day but Jasmine, according to her friend who said, “She must have died a few hours earlier in her sleep.” (This was a rough translation from German)

    Texas Mom and Susan: you are both in denial. Many vaccines have good safety records after decades of use. But Gardasil isn’t one of them! Just like with Vioxx, the public is the guinea pigs for this drug. And in this case, it’s healthy teenagers who are victims. Just because your daughter wasn’t injured by Gardasil, doesn’t make it safe. There is no way to predict which girl will be injured or die. But we know for certain that cervical cancer is quite rare and Gardisil only protects against some strains of HPV, for a few years. Mothers, don’t gamble with your childrens’ health and lives! I was injured by a prescription drug and prescription drugs are a leading cause of death in the U.S. Google it!

  2. Mary G on July 16, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    I just found out my 14 year old niece received her first shot of Gardisil. I spoke to her father and voiced my concern and his response was that their doctor recommended it and he and my sister-in-law didn’t want her to get cervical cancer. I asked him if he knew that some girls had been adversely affected by this vaccine. He said “No”, but would go home and read the brochure. A little late. As you can see, even the well meaning public are duped into thinking that if the doctor has no problem giving this shot, it has to be safe!!!! There is definitely a lack of education and information. I wonder if this is on purpose…keeping people in the dark to sell more drugs and make more money.

    I pray that nothing happens to my niece as I love her dearly as she has two more shots to get over the next 6 months. It pains me to know that she has an 11 year old sister waiting in the wings destined for the same fate. I hope my brother and sister-in-law reconsider their decision before it’s too late.

    It broke my heart to read how many other families have suffered with the damage and deaths of their girls…and now going after the boys!!! This is truly INSANE!

  3. Mary King on July 20, 2013 at 6:12 am

    To ” Texas Mom” who wrote into this memorial…..please realize that you can be no more certain that these beautiful young women did NOT die as a result of this vaccine than he families can be sure that it did. At least the parents who wrote in…. Admit that it is not a certainty that their precious children died of this cause…. But I believe their is certainly enough eveidence, in the form of lost lives…. to warrant an immediate ( now, overdue) investigation.
    I met a loving mother a few summers ago, at a seminar…. She shared with me the story of her daughter and her daughter’s death which appeared to be related to this vaccine. As she kissed her daughter’s picture and put it away, I thanked her for warning me of this possible danger to my daughter who has NOT received the vaccine and may be alive today thanks to this woman who clearly has a mission. She is in my prayers.

  4. Jeannie on August 8, 2013 at 12:46 am

    My 11 year old son was given his second HPV shot last week. After the shot, he developed a rash all over his torso, which has gotten increasingly worse. The reason he was given any vaccinations is because my husband took our son to the doctor when I was at work…the doctor said it was necessary to have the shots, and my husband believed her. The doctor did not provide any information on the vaccination- beyond that it prevented sexually transmitted diseases and would be a proactive step to help any girls my son may become sexually active with when he is older. I am so worried and sick about this. I hope the rash is the worst of it for my precious boy. Japan has pulled the plug on the vaccination. I hope people will make more informed decisions than we did about this vaccination.

  5. john sharb on August 9, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    My name is john and I am a divorcee with 2 wonderful daughters I share joint custody of them and my oldest daughter is 10 and their mother decided because she was diagnosed with hpv that she would get our daughter the shots without consulting with me and know I am very distraught over her decision. My first reaction was what has she done to our little girl. I have been sick to my stomach every minute since I found out. I cant stop thinking what could a long term side effect if any may she have to live with in her future. I pray that she will be able to bare children if that’s her wish. That this (miracle cure) is just that. Parents teach abstenance for this is the only miracle cure

  6. Veva sprague on September 9, 2013 at 7:41 am

    I am so glad my instinct told me not to get this vaccine for my two girls even though the pediatrician recommended it. I am so sad for the girls and their family’s and they will all be in our prayers.

  7. stan on September 9, 2013 at 10:26 am

    A few deaths doesn’t prove anything

  8. men di on September 9, 2013 at 11:25 pm

    ALL vaccines have risks! If there were never side effects reported, they would not be listed. Even though these side effects do not affect everyone, how will you know it will or will not affect you or someone you love? You only realize it when it’s too late. And for the people on here saying that the drug manufacturer will not be sued, you are very wrong! If McDonalds can be sued for a HOT cup of coffee being “TOO HOT”, and lose, anything can be done. Thank God for the people that have gotten the vaccine and did not have a bad reaction… BUT… for the parents that have lost their children because of it, those children can never, ever be brought back. All those parents have left are memories of what was and what will not be. If only someone could have educated them more so they at least new the risks or how common they really were among young women. I have had HPV and it went away on its own. I have had friends that had HPV and even though their cervix had to be scraped, etc, etc, they are thankful they didn’t choose the vaccine. People believe these drugs have been researched beyond measure, but that isn’t the case. WE ARE THE RESEARCH!! And every time something major happens to someone, the drug manufacturers list it at that time, but the person it happens to is just SOL. That’s how they’re able to add new “effects”… through us! Perfect Example… I took the DEPO shot for birth control from 15 yrs old until I was 19 yrs old. At this time, it was very new. I finally stopped taking it to have a baby. Several years later, I went back to check my options for birth control after my baby was born and the DEPO came up since I had had it before. The nurse, actually the VERY SAME nurse who administered the shot for almost 4 years, advised against it! She said a lot of new research had been done and it was causing bones to thin and break for teens and younger women. It was actually linked to the DEPO shot. This goes to show that research is never complete. I am sorry to the parents that have lost their children! I hope very much that Doctors and Nurses educate their patients about this… the pros and the cons. What may or may not happen… And go with your instinct! After reading this, I will continue to educate my kids about sex and how to prevent STD’s BUT I WILL NOT recommend this vaccine to them. As a parent, it is my job to protect them and I will not flip a coin to decide my childs fate after knowing what I know. Even though it doesn’t always happen, I do not want my child being a statistic or percentage. There are hundreds of strains of the HPV. The vaccine does not even cover half. Is it really worth it??

  9. Tierney Diggens on September 10, 2013 at 1:06 am

    I am so proud of my daughter for going against the grain at her daughter’s school and not allowing her then 12 year daughter to have the Gardasil vaccine. She and her daughter researched the info on Gardasil and decided together to say no. By the way, my granddaughter was the only one in her grade to refuse the vaccine…

  10. Joel on October 8, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    I am so sorry for all of your losses. I am terrified now after reading your gut wrenching stories.My daughter is just eleven years old and just got her second dose yesterday. She told me tonight while I was helping her with her homework that she had had a headache earier and her muscles inher legs and arms were hurting her. I pray I did the right thing by listening to her pediatrician and having her take these injections. I will not sleep

  11. shelleyboehm@yahoo.com on October 15, 2013 at 10:09 am

    My daughter got sick from the Gardasil vaccine back 2009.She ended up in the hospital for three weeks and it went cronic they left it untreated to long so now she cant work in her field she went to school for so greatful that I have her I almost lost her.Had I not got her to the hospital when I did.So sorry for all those who have lost their children my heart hurts for you all.This is a night mare unsolved whith our goverment paying so much for avertising it as a good thing but not.At what expense life I say no to any shot now and so scared of them all.Please every one do the home work first it was me who talked her in to getting it because of the problems i had when i was young thinking it would keep her safe I WAS SO WRONG!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Whitney on October 19, 2013 at 1:43 am

    Show me some evidence, other than the coincidence that some young women tragically died around the same time they took the Garadasil vaccine. Because as you use your evidence that these young women passed after taking the vaccine there’s one hundred times as much evidence that young women have taken this and been fine. I’m one of them. I’m a 22 year old woman and all of my friends have had the vaccine as well. We’re being ridiculous here. We don’t have any proof other than a really loosely based assumption. This is why I hate conspiracy theories. They assume that the general public is so stupid taht they just “don’t see” what the claim is. But there’s literally no proof for this claim. I could easily find 100 young women who got a tetanus shot and tragically died afterward and claim that’s their deaths are related to the shots but you present absolutely no evidence that their deaths are related to the shot. Give me some proof of that and you’ll have a case. But as of right now you seem like mothers tryingto find something to blame for their children’s deaths. It’s unfair and tragic but you do realize that your irrational projection is causing some women to not get vaccinated and therefore increase their risk for cancer right? How cruel is that?

  13. Kelley Evans on October 23, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I cannot understand why this was not only approved, but mandatory for the school in Alabama where my daughter attended. That is what we were told by the doctors anyway.

    This has changed my daughter’s life drastically. She went from being a vibrant, beautiful, energetic 12 y/o, to consistent female problems to this day 10.23.2013. She was NEVER sick before…..

    I know this had something to do with the way my daughters health changed.

    But, I hope they all got rich off of our children and so sadly, some of their lives taken, the rest of the ones it effected negatively!

    So, so not right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Marianne Baker on October 25, 2013 at 2:33 am

    The doctors seem to be pushing this vaccine. I was asked to give this to my daughter at 12 or 13. I waited till her senior year still being pushed to give it to her. I waited till now at 17. Her first shot went ok… her second shot not at all…she called “Mom” in a slow drawn out voice before going into a seizure and passed out. They called a code blue.I am now so afraid for her and her future. Its been just a few days and has complained of many things headaches, ringing in her ears, backaches, nausea…and after effects…they’re not over …they can happen within days weeks months… DO NOT GIVE THIS VACCINE TO YOUR TEEN. No child should pass out or go into seizure from a vaccine…but they act as if its normal…its not!!!..Read the ingredients it contains…its lethal..really roach killer! In none of the handouts does it say possible seizure is possible! My doctor later told me passing out happens frequently and not from fear of the vaccine. Never had I had any of my children go into seizure or pass out from a vaccine afterwards. I pray she can have children in her later life as one of the ingredients in this vaccine is caused to cause infertility in rats….And they let this on the market!!
    I have done my homework and am a reference librarian. All I can say is this truly real and what is happening to the FDA and the government in letting this vaccine be pushed and administered to our children..What will the future hold for this vaccine and our teens as adults…I feel I have made a terrible mistake..I’m not sure if the government or drug companies care about the lives of people anymore..There seems to be a drug side effect side effects side side effects…and they are deadly…a fix all for anything you have..REALLY ..its all about money..and its very very sad…Mr. President has your girls been administered this vaccine..I would like to know…?

  15. Marianne on October 25, 2013 at 2:52 am

    and to add if we all think we have drug wars to win that are illegal at home…we need to win the drug war of pharmaceutical companies that keep advertising on our radios televisions and internet… to stop advertising to our adult society and children to take drugs to fix everything that is wrong with us…..please stop advertising about drugs …and leave it to ourselves and our doctors to advise and us to make our own decisions …we are in a world of brainwashing to take drugs and fix all our problems…what is happening to our society…?

  16. Jennifer on December 16, 2013 at 12:12 am

    I am so deeply sorry for the mothers who have had to bury their young girls. It is a pain I can not imagine and I pray for your peace and strength. I am so grateful, however that you are speaking out, that you have made your personal stories public and by doing so have provided confused mothers looking for more information an education about the possible complications associated with this vaccine. As moms, all we want to do is protect our children and from the time they are tiny babies we are taught by medical professionals that making sure they are immunized is the best way to do just that. Nobody talks to you about the risks. Nobody. Do you think if the nurse came in and said I’m going to give your day old infant a shot now and there’s a small chance they could have a lifetime of medical problems because of it or it could kill them that any sane person would say oh, ok? There’s just not enough information provided by the medical professionals to make an informed decision. We are made to feel like we are being bad parents if we don’t automatically choose to immunize our children. Parents should be asking more questions and being disclosed a lot more information. Not only about the risks but about the real effectiveness of the shots. The risks are simply not worth the gain. Thank you to the moms and individuals who publish and maintain this website. If you have protected even one individual from harm, that is enough.

  17. TD on December 16, 2013 at 8:26 am

    I guess the bottom line is that more research should be done. There is no real evidence either proving the vaccine was responsible or proving it was not. I have unfortunately, known several people, young seemingly healthy people who have died. Several have died in their sleep, some had mysterious symptoms that appeared out of nowhere. We aren’t always aware of all health issues facing us, especially when they are asymptomatic. People need someone or something to blame for these senseless deaths. I don’t know if the vaccine actually killed these girls or if there was some underlying health problem that was undetected, but more research wouldn’t hurt and anyone who thinks a vaccine is the cause shouldn’t have to pay for an autopsy themselves, the government should do so for the sake of everyone’s health. Allergic reactions to the vaccine are possible too, for any vaccine or medicine and we all need to be aware of the signs and symptoms, that is why information sheets are handed out with all vaccinations and medicines. Unfortunately, most people don’t read them and ignore the symptoms. My heart goes out to all those who have lost a loved one.

    I’m sorry for your losses and nothing can bring your children back. I’m glad to know some of the effects of the people have from this drug I have two daughters and I will not give them this vaccination. People what to believe that drugs are good and for the most part they are. However being in industry which is known to assist those who are sick I see things everyday what your reactions to medications which patients today in the most part some things can be treated with something as simple as a benadryl, but with some the effect are long lasting and life taking. We take a gamble in everything we do in life, anyone can be effected adversely to any drug our systems are all made differently and that is the way God intended it. What is important to know are the reactions to medications which is not appropriate, and these should be stated to the CDC and investigations should be done. This is how you get a drug off the market or the warning be told to you beforee you take it. Though some people have been fine but those who have not have paid a terrible price. Just as reading about a women who was raped no one can change what happened. Life is valuable. However all losses hurt just as all things we can not change, but the losses can be something that God uses to help others or keep others from making the same mistakes.

    This page is misleading and possible fraudulent. Independent analyses (including obituary and death records searches) verified that more than one of the stories above are complete fiction.

    There’s also this information from Snopes:

    To the two ignorant Big Pharma promoters on this thread: http://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/2012/06/25/4th-leading-us-cause-of-death-pharmas-drugs/ Also, Medical Harm and Error is the 3rd Leading Cause Of Death in the United States killing 400,000 people every year (100,000 of those deaths are due to Doctors and Nurses NOT washing their hands. This is an arrogant, sociopathic, greedy, deadly and kill for profit system! Big Pharma, Corporate Medical and the FDA are the true Axis Of Evil!

    (NaturalNews) Update: The original reporter who covered Dr. Harper’s presentations both in 2007 and 2009 claims Dr. Harper’s statements about being able to “sleep at night” have been taken out of context. According to this reporter, Dr. Harper expressed serious concerns about Gardasil and Cervarix being mandated because of their many potential side effects, but did not actually “come clean” about the dangers and uselessness of the vaccines at these two particular events. Dr. Harper did, however, admit that it would take 60 years of vaccinating every single young girl in the U.S. to even make “an iota of difference” with regards to the cervical cancer rate, which suggests that the vaccine is, indeed, useless, just as we reported here.

    What are the risks?
    Reports of side effects and complications following vaccination are collected by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which is managed by the FDA and the CDC. The reports are unconfirmed and not necessarily related to the vaccine. In a 2009 review of the data, the agencies reported that more than 23 million doses of Gardasil were distributed between 2006 and 2008, and 12,424 reports had been filed. Most of those were not serious and involved pain and redness at the injection site, dizziness, nausea, headaches and fainting.
    But 6 percent of the reports were serious. They included blood clots and Guillain-Barré syndrome, a disorder that causes muscle weakness and tingling that can progress to paralysis. There were also 32 reported deaths, but they had no common pattern that would suggest they were caused by the vaccine. In most of the cases that had medical documentation, the deaths were linked to other factors, such as diabetes, viral illness, illicit drug use and heart failure.

    A shocking new report is now revealing that anybody who receives blood from someone who was vaccinated may be downright dangerous to your health. They are finding that the genetically modified HPV DNA strands present in Gardasil had firmly attached to the vaccination’s aluminum adjuvant in a whopping 100% of the samples tested. Whereas natural HPV DNA does not stay in the bloodstream long, the aluminum binding allows the genetically modified recombinant HPV DNA (rDNA) to behave differently; potentially entering cells and wreaking havoc.

    HPV resolves more than 90% of the time ON ITS OWN. Only about 1% of cases progress to anything remotely life threatening. Why inject potential poison into our bodies for nothing?
    I have two daughters. They won’t be receiving this on my watch.
    To those families living this nightmare: Thank you for having the courage to speak out. Remember, the first doctor who suggested other doctors simply wash their hands to prevent infection was considered insane.

    I think we have another victim of Guardisil. Multiple diagnosis At 18 years of age (was a healthy young lady) Poly glandiular Disorder–onset of diabetes, Addison’s Disease, Thyroid insufficiency, Ciliacs. They disconnected all life support last night because her last incident left her with too much swelling on her brain. When asking the sister (a few weeks back–then confirmed by the victim) questions she had never considered…they both believe it was the Guardisil Vaccine. Upstate NY

    This is beyond idiotic, why is that people who have been unaffected always feel like they have the ultimate right to express their belief that it couldn’t possibly be the vaccinations causing all this carnage… They truly are blind and obviously illiterate… Let’s face it if these people could read they may actually get educated…
    Profit before people as it’s been through the ages … There is only one way to stop this and that is for people to take responsibility for their own health and vote with their feet… Our bodies are organic and no DRUG if snt description can ever help it heal… All of this vaccine over kill is for one purpose only and that is to cause the dumbing down of society as a whole… It’s easy to shepherd when people are clueless..
    I send much love and light to all those parents left behind to grieve the loss of their beloved children .. This must stop and the only way theses killers will get the message is if we stop supporting the industry

    My child has taken the injection and the Dr,s office made an error and gave him double the dose and stamped over his record and he has had 4 doses. He is having some side effects and he has medical issues already with his health. what suggestions do you have?

  29. Christa on March 20, 2014 at 10:05 am

    This vaccination has just been released in South Africa, government funded and given freely to gr4 girls at school (11 – 12yr olds). My daughter is already 20 and newly wed and safe, but my niece got her first shot last week Tuesday and is currently in hospital with pneumonia… I feel so guilty as I had some info on this that I haven’t shared with my sister to help her make a more informed decision… My logical mind tells me: How the heck can there be a “vaccination against cervical cancer” but not other forms of cancer? But not many parents asks these kinds of questions… My sister don’t want to connect it to the vaccine, because her daughter has always had problems with her lungs in the past, but I’m concerned… How do we fight this? How do we speak up? What can we do?

    To all the families who’ve lost a daughter and those having to live with the horror of side effects, my deepest and heart felt condolences… May the God of all comfort give you His comfort. But thank you so much for sharing your stories! Somehow I will use this to fight for the little girls in South Africa, many of whom have no voice…

    This is just heartbreaking. I’m so sorry to hear about this young girl. The family will stay in our thoughts and prayers.

  31. Marian on March 25, 2014 at 1:31 pm

    I have personal contact with each and every person who has a story on this site. I can assure you they are absolutely not fiction. Nice try, though.

  32. Marian on March 25, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    Have you done any research other than speaking with your friends? Just because YOU did not have a reaction, does not mean it is not a dangerous vaccine or many. My daughter was injured almost 6 years ago, a “direct result of the gardasil vaccine” according to several of her doctors. Instead of questioning me, why don’t you do some in depth research and not rely on what has or has not happened with your friends.

  33. Marian on March 25, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    How is your daughter doing, Joel?

  34. Marian on March 25, 2014 at 2:14 pm

    Tell that to the parents who lost a child.
