Skip to comments.Two Women Die After Receiving Cervical Cancer Vaccine
Posted on 01/25/2008 10:12:14 AM PST by Froufrou
The death of two young women who received the cervical cancer vaccination is causing some in the U.K. to question a strategy that calls for hundreds of thousands of schoolgirls to receive the shot next fall, the Daily Mail reports.
The young women who died received the vaccination, marketed under the name Gardasil, in Germany and Austria, respectively. The European Medicines Agency has not released their ages.
The two deaths follow the deaths of three U.S. females, ages 12, 19 and 22, who were reported to have died days after receiving Gardasil, which protects against the human papillomavirus believed to be the leading cause of cervical cancer was administered.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently reported that 28 women miscarried after receiving the vaccine.
Neither U.S. nor European health officials have directly linked the deaths or miscarriages to Gardasil. The FDA has said there is no reason to reexamine approval of the drug.
A spokesman for Merck, maker of Gardasil, told the Daily Mail there were no plans to change the company's recommendation on use of the vaccine.

What was the cause of death?
This is a shocking story...Did these girls have some type of life-threatening disease?
....the deaths so far have been unexplained.
O.K., Texas, since Governor Perry signed legislation mandating these vaccines to all school girls, WHAT NOW?
Doesn’t take long for the FDA/pharma staffers to show up, does it?
“O.K., Texas, since Governor Perry signed legislation mandating these vaccines to all school girls, WHAT NOW?”
Get an exemption. One can be best obtained using religious beliefs exemption...doesn’t have to be any particular denomination.
FDA in pocket of Big Pharma? I’m shocked I tell you, shocked!
I thought he reversed the mandatory thing. I could be mistaken though.
Well if they weren’t, um, ‘eating’ pickles they wouldn’t need the vaccine in the first place. Damn those pickles.
Sadly I know a family who’s otherwise healthy child died recently.. he seemed sick with the flu.. he died in his bed. He had not had any medications or trials or shots... but if he had a story like this would have appeared.
Based soley on the facts of this article these women died within days of getting the vaccine, but nothing else is said... the implication is the vaccine is at fault, the reality could be anything based on the wording of this article.. could have all died in car wrecks.
No one here has yet mentioned that the most common vector of contacting HPV is through sexual activity. Gardasil is intended as an STD vaccine.
It is just another way for the culture to tell our children, sexual activity is safe at any age.

To suggest teaching abstinence to stop the spread of STD’s is greatly frowned on by the liberal establishment.
Refuse! Then, teach your daughters about monogamous, marital sex. If they follow this advice they will never need Guardicil. The vaccine is for a sexually transmitted disease that leads to cervical cancer.
-—way back when, kids used to have those symptoms from DPT and smallpox immunizations—
So little information .... Out of how many doses administered? And how does this compare to, say, fainting rates among girls who receive flu vaccinations? Has it been established that the vaccine caused the fainting? Or could something like anxiety about the vaccine (or shots in general) be to blame?
There are few things so capable of causing stupid reactions as a statistic presented without context.
Maybe the vaccine really is bad for some folks ... but if you're gonna claim it, you've got to prove it.
I have one word: Vioxx.
And yet ... suppose some nice, abstinent girl gets married to a nice boy who, nevertheless, has contracted HPV. Do you suggest she not get vaccinated, because she's abstinent?
And I have one word: tomato.
Tomatoes were at one time considered to be poisonous. At other times, they were frowned upon because they were thought to cause impure sexual desire in people who ate them.
Neither Vioxx nor Tomatoes have any damned thing to do with this vaccine, and whether it's a) safe or b) effective.
“Human papillomavirus is an STD. Drug companies make a lot of money selling the vaccination.”
Correct. Merck is desperate for cash.
“To suggest teaching abstinence to stop the spread of STDs is greatly frowned on by the liberal establishment.”
—yeah—that’s the one,IIRC, my mother can’t get anymore because half a dozen or so people had strokes and a bunch of lawyers made a mint-—
No, I would suggest that her new husband go to his doctor and have the small flat warts removed. Problem solved. No more human papillomavirus!
Never is an awfully big word. Hint: are you gonna bet your daughter's health on the hope that your future son-in-law never messed around?
Your decision, obviously: but remember that it takes two to tango. You could consider in the sense of innoculating your daughter against her future husband's past.
And if the pharma company had engaged in some full dislclosure, maybe that option wouldn't have been foreclosed to the folks who still wanted to use it. People can have a nasty reaction to being used as guinea pigs.
I was making a point about approval not necessarily guaranteeing safety and/or efficacy.
Hopefully I will do a good enough job and she will ask her husband to have a physical, if he had previous relationships. Why should I risk my daughter’s health on questionable practices? The point is, the vaccine is part of the sex-at-any-age culture.
They were trying to push this vaccine on my 12 year old daughter prior to entering 7th grade this year. I knew more about the vaccine than the nurse practitioner and promptly refused this vaccine until more information was known about possible side effects.
Death is certainly a MAJOR side affect!
“And yet ... suppose some nice, abstinent girl gets married to a nice boy who, nevertheless, has contracted HPV. Do you suggest she not get vaccinated, because she’s abstinent?”
While it is believed that some protection may be offered by Gardasil relevent to some HPV (4 - there are over 40 HPV’s known), no guarantee has ever been made regarding full immunity of contraction of one of these 4 type-specific HPV’s.
The FDA’s studies indicate that these vaccine may INCREASE a female’s risk of cervical disease if they already have one of the 4 HPV’s at the time of injection.
Research reveals the HPV strains that causes warts is not the strains that could cause Cervical Cancer.
The folks pushing this are encouraging girls to get a vaccine that will make it less of a risk for them, if they want to have sex all they want. They don't want the girls to think about all the other risks of sexual activity; STDs, pregnancy, AIDS. What's interesting, is that they're using the mothers of these girls to encourage their daughters, because at their age, the mothers ARE worried about cancer, not the problems associated with sexual activity.
Exactly. Some vaccinations have been mandated all my life, for 55 years. Why haven’t they had problems?
It seems to be the newer vaccines that have more risk. I base this comment on nvic.org information.
I also heard that 80% (!!) of women have HPV by the age of 50.
WOW - pretty prevalent...
My daughter was VERY sick for a week after getting her flu vaccine and my son received the chicken pox vaccine and contracted chicken pox 3 years later!
Great points you have made! The bigger picture that I find scary is that years back the government was ‘good’ for defeating polio whereas now it’s come down to ‘what the government is forcing upon us’ and I don’t like that.
To the young girls out there, don’t have sex with warted males. Better yet, don’t have sex... never mind.
Remember when they would test you for venereal diseases before issuing a marriage license? Or was that just for syphilis?
It's not a cancer vaccine, moron reporter/headline writer. It's a vaccine against an STD.
Nope. He'd still be a carrier.
