Judicial Watch: Documents Prove Gardasil Casualties

Judicial Watch: Documents Prove Gardasil Casualties

Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced last week that documents it obtained from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request detail 26 new deaths resulting from Gardasil vaccinations.

The deaths were recorded in adverse reaction reports made between Sept. 10, 2010 and Sept. 15, 2011. Other adverse reactions to the drug detailed in the reports included seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short-term memory loss and Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

The adverse-reaction reports include the case of a healthy 14-year old girl first injected with the drug in 2007, who developed symptoms including numbness and tingling in her fingers and toes, fatigue, a hard time falling asleep, urinary tract infections, ovarian cyst, irritability, trouble getting out of bed and seizures. At the time of her final injection in 2008, she was said to have suffered more than 150 seizures. The child reportedly ultimately died from complications related to ovarian cysts.

Another victim, an 18-year old girl, died five months after receiving the inoculation from complications related to meningitis. The young woman had reportedly also received a meningitis vaccine during her Gardasil treatments, but health officials contend the strain that killed her was “likely the type not prevented by the vaccination.”

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) still recommends the vaccine: “Based on all of the information we have today, CDC recommends HPV vaccination for the prevention of most types of cervical cancer. As with all approved vaccines, CDC and FDA will continue to closely monitor the safety of HPV vaccines.”

The Gardasil controversy has recently resurged in headlines amid reports of GOP Presidential candidate Texas Governor Rick Perry’s signing of an executive order in 2007 requiring the vaccine for young girls in his State.

    This will come as news to those who aren’t familiar with Judicial Watch.
    To guess, the official defense will be presented as a statistical glitch. If we look at the ‘big picture,’ we will be told that compared to the number of people who don’t have any apparent symptoms or side-effects, the number of deaths is “insignificant.”
    Since the approach used by the Gardasil bunch is the same as those who push flu vaccine [make a batch and hope for the best], it sounds as though the real intent amounts to a ‘designer vaccines’ approach. Make a batch, and don’t sweat FDA’s approval.
    If drug-makers can’t be sued, then there isn’t any good reason to be concerned about how many people die or suffer side-effects. What price profit, scientists? Those people are REALLY scientists, aren’t they? It is SO hard to tell.

    • health mom

      I am withholding my name and using an alternative email address so I don’t loose the ability to work in the health field. Please understand, I want to work in this field and tell the truth, without it costing me the ability to work in the field while telling the truth.

      but I want to be able to add credibility to this article as i am in this field.

      There are a lot of vaccinations that ARE SAFE, but…the HPV vaccine is not one of them.

      1# it did not go through the normal amount of test trials most do (on humans)

      2# the American public is being lied to about the severity of side effects.

      now it is true that it does prevent (so far) against several forms of cancer(genital and oral etc) as scientist are finding that the forms of cancer that are affecting multiple areas involved in sex…are being caused by HPV..

      But this vaccine was pushed out in haste, It was not perfected.

      The pain associated with this shot is severe often times.

      on the high side (lol) it can cause fainting, severe pain and possibly seizures(due to the pain)…

      Now on the low side…it can kill.

      now all though it is safe than the small pox vaccine, I will tell you as a woman in the health care field with two daughters i will not give this vaccine to my own children.

      Maybe some time in the future, when this is perfected it will be great. but I would please beg you not to get this vaccine for you kids.

      The target group is now ages 8-16, but the reference is 6-12 years of age.

      Why? because the most lethal side effects are not as high in these ages for this shot.

      In addition, many if not all administrators of this shot are supposed to require this to be given in a series of shots, plus the child/young tween is supposed to hang out in the office for an hour or two. They say it is due to the fainting, but the truth is…it is to cover their but if your child/tween has lethal side effects.

      Now I am all for any vaccine that could prevent cancer, aids etc etc. But although the HPV shot may be a phenomenal shot in the future, at this time it is two young and little tested to be trusted. If you take your kid to get this shot it is like playing russian roulette with your kid. If you decline the HPV shot they will try to reward it with the name of the manufacturer, or call it the cervical cancer shot. Which I found a disgusting way to trick people into getting it.

      Please….do not get it, at least wait until it is perfected, and let your child make the choice when they are 16-18 to get it. Please do not give it to your young child.

      You can always wait to give a shot.

      but you cannot replace a dead beloved child.

      • Mike in MI

        Health (SUCKER) mom -
        Boy, have they got you by the short-hairs! I won’t go into all the damnable things that could and have been found out (and suppressed) about the poison pinprick.
        Suffice it to say that our beloved Congressmen and Senators are bought, paid and “souled-out” to the pharmaceuticals and vaccine interests. Those interests include all of what you call “health” system (except most of the alternative HEALERS).
        If real health care that actually cures people were implemented, instead of “maintain” and manage people’s diseases to keep them hurting and NEEDING/CLAMORING/LUSTING after “Health” insurance and entitlements we’d be the richest nation in the world again in an eye-blink. But, they want you to think you’re free. Think you are? Then try getting face-to-face information from a non-medical salesperson about healthful vitamins, minerals, oils, herbs, juices or whatever that would keep you unphased by all those horrid bacteria, viruses, funguses, yeasts and degenerative conditions. That salesperson can’t give it without facing the prospect of fines, jail time and government shutdown of his business.
        Or, you can exercise the right of a free person, educate yourself and take personal responsibility. But you won’t. It’s easier to stay there under that thumb and catch whatever they send out for your pain and debilitation…and, oh yes,…everybody will feel so-o-o-o sorry for you. Ignorance can be blissful.

      • James

        Health mom, Thank you! I appreciate your honesty. Basically, I’m against all vaccinations, they give you a small dose of the disease and rely on the body’s immune system to strengthen itself and protect the body from future encounters with the disease. However, some people who have a weak immune system, may die from the vaccination. It’s my understanding that all vaccinatiions kill some people.

  • Papa

    Simple fact… Anytime we “inoculate” we take the chance of an adverse reaction. The same is true with all other medications as well, from aspirin to penicillin even when taken orally.

    Your option, of course, is to stay away from Doctors and medication…

  • David in MA

    Can anyone think of a better way to population control
    or death panels for the infirm or elderly than
    government required vaccinations?
    I can’t.

    • Ken Brody

      I can think of several: flu, polio, pneumonia, measles, whooping cough, smallpox, tetanus, diphtheria. HPV doesn’t often kill, but it does tend to make women sterile and cause cancer, and that is a good way to reduce the population.

      So long as a critical number of people gain immunity through vaccination, the unvaccinated are somewhat protected through “herd resistance” – the disease doesn’t have enough susceptible victims to spread.

      What we need to do better is to find a way to identify those who might suffer adverse effects from the vaccine, instead of decrying every attempt to immunize people. However, these susceptible people stand a very good chance of being killed by the disease itself if they go unvaccinated.

    This is the e-mail address that will give you vital information about vaccinations, how to protect you and your loved ones, and how the FDA is cheating/killing all of us by allowing BIG PHARMA to market vaccinations for BIG PROFITS at our expense. Remember, doctors own the test clinics, the pharmacies, sit on the Board of Directors of big pharmaceutical companies AND the FDA!! In my industry, this is called CONFLICT OF INTEREST!!! In the HEALTH INDUSTRY (SICK INDUSTRY) this is called EVERYDAY BUSINESS. In the SILENT MAJORITY of US this is called GREED and CORRUPTION. You think our ECONOMY is bad and corrupt? You ain’t seen nothing compared to the VACCINATION INDUSTRY!!!

  • eddie47d

    I have stated before that Gardasil should be a voluntary drug and not mandated. Some vaccinations have proven to be a life saver for millions and most of us humans are the same when it comes to ingesting anything,(food,drink,drugs).Yet there will be extreme exceptions to everything such as peanut allergies. Although most of us can consume lots of peanuts. The same is true with vaccinations where most of us will be just fine yet those few who have a reaction/death should make us cautionary. We should be able to consult with our doctor if we have questions on side effects. Now if 1 person dies and 99 are saved by Gardasil is that drug considered effective or should we allow the 99 to die to save that one?

    • Polski

      So when you say 1 person is saved and 99 die, is that information provided by the pharmaceutical company that manufactures Gardasil and the FDA, or by an INDEPENDENT TESTING AGENCY? You know that it’s by the company that sells Gardasil and the FDA!!! Remember, they’re in the business of MAKING MONEY,not healing!!

      • eddie47d

        That was a rhetorical question and nothing more. Such as;should someone in a Malaria infested country refuse a Malaria shot.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          would you still say that if one of your grand kids were the one to die??? I doubt it VERY much!! I doubt your daughter would feel that way either!!

        • DaveH

          Explain to us, Eddie, how it would be of risk to anybody else if a person refused a vaccination?

          • akmac64

            The risk is that the unvaccinated person will contract the disease and transmit it to other people with poor or no immunity.

          • DaveH

            How is that going to happen, akmac64, if those people have taken the vaccination? Unless of course it doesn’t really work.

          • health mom

            DaveH I can answer that question.

            If the disease is highly infectious, getting a vaccine not only gives the receiver immunity but curbs the risk of people within that community/nation etc of getting this particular contagion/virus. Its about reducing occurance in terms of population numbers and introducing the bodies themselves to fight off the illness.

            This would be especially true in Polio.


            The benefit must outweigh the risk.

            At this time as a person in the medical field I would not give this vaccine to myself or my child.

            I took my whooping cough/flu/additional polo and Hep shots…but I would not take HPV shot nor give it to my kids. And my decision is based on the newness of the vaccine and severeness of side effects.

            Many people may not agree with me, and that is OK. As parents they have the right to make that decision. I for one will wait another 5 years before I even consider it an option for my girls again.

            The funny thing is though, us women in our 30′s+ are not allowed to get the shot…which also disturbs me.

            My kids have all their shots but this one,

            Just the pain and fainting alone, is enough to ensure my girls don’t get it. I think sexual abstinence or contraceptives like condoms and preaching monogamous partner only (as an adult only) would be much safer.

            Many people will say this is unrealistic. But that’s ok, my kids my choice.

          • DaveH

            Was the Polio vaccine effective? Who knows? There were never any rigorous double-blind tests to prove its efficacy. Read this article, Mom:
            From the article — “We have to understand that live virus vaccines have a history of danger and disease, especially of the disease that is targeted. For example, the live polio flu vaccine virus that was used from 1979 – 2000 was pulled off the market because it itself was considered the major cause of polio and as such, Dr. Salk, the inventor of the vaccine, admitted this to be the case”.

            But, what this site is all about is Freedom. I doubt that anybody on this site cares what choices anybody else makes. We just don’t want those choices forced on us.

          • DaveH

            I would rather take my chances with nature any day over putting my faith in the lying Politicians who brought us “Honest Abe”, Global Warming, and the numerous False Flag events.
            We are currently reaping the rewards of blindly allowing Politicians to favor their politically-connected Crony Capitalists and other special interests. It’s time we get back to the concept of Freedom.

        • http://naver samurai

          It may be unadviseable, but that is their right to refuse one. If they get sick, then they can go to the hospital and get the care they need. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • DaveH

        Eddie has no clue what he’s talking about when he says “Some vaccinations have proven to be a life saver for millions”. There has been no such “proof”. Does that statement remind anybody of Obama’s claims about how many jobs would have been lost if not for his programs. It’s so easy to talk about what “would have happened” when an event has not occurred.
        For some reality:

        • akmac64

          So, you deny the eradication of smallpox, polio, measles and many other diseases from the general population as being due to public health immunization efforts. Those things are hardly coincidence. Anecdotal accounts of…my uncle’s friend got the flu shot and died of a heart attack…are proof of absolutely nothing except rumor mongering.

          • DaveH

            You can’t make a statement that the smallpox vaccination or any other type stamped out their respective diseases. When something doesn’t happen, it doesn’t mean that an action taken is the cause of that something not happening. I have never had a flu shot, and I haven’t had the flu. Does that prove the shot isn’t necessary? Of course not. To strictly assign results to an attempted cure would require rigorous double-blind studies which have never been done.
            And viruses in particular must be passed from host to host, thus a virus could easily run its course and cease existing unless some Government busybody preserves it in a laboratory. There is no proof whatever that the disappearance of smallpox wasn’t due to natural causes such as hygiene, or the previously mentioned natural disappearance.
            Read this article, Akmac64:

            From the article:
            “A stringent compulsory smallpox vaccine program, which prosecuted those refusing the vaccine, was instituted in England in 1867. Within 4 years 97.5 % of persons between 2 and 50 had been vaccinated. The following year England experienced the worst smallpox epidemic[1] in its history with 44,840 deaths. Between 1871 and 1880 the incidence of smallpox escalated from 28 to 46 per 100,000. The smallpox vaccine does not work”.

  • Disgusted

    My work place in WI has now made the flue shot mandatory or you are considered to have voluntarily resigned employment as of 12-31-11. I think this is crazy. There is no concrete evidence that the flu shot is even effective at preventing the flu it is just a cash cow for the drug companies. My experience is that if you get the flu shot you are guaranteed to get the flu – most of the people I know that have gotten it that is true for. We need to stand up and preserve our right to choose what goes into our bodies.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        when I was in the service, they made the flu vaccine manditory. I got it three years in a row, and three years in a row I ended up in the hospital with IVs giving me fluids and I couldn’t keep even water down. the Army gave me a profile against getting it and I have never gotten it since. Two years ago, I spent a week in the hospital with my handicapped son as he couldn’t be left alone. he had the avian flu and I didn’t even get a case of the sniffles. My wife spent half a day with him and caught it, full blown. She had been innoculated!!

        • akmac64

          Avian flu? Not very likely. Common cold is much more likely.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            would you like to tell me why he was in a negative air flow room and under strict quarantene? Were you there? don’t be stupid! that kid was damn sick! don’t make light of something you know NOTHING about!!

          • DaveH

            What else do you expect from a brainwashed sheeple?

          • http://?? Joe H.

            sorry DaveH, I just get testy at ignorance sometimes and THAT dude acted IGNORANT!!

    • S Barringer

      My experience is that if you get the flu shot you are guaranteed to get the flu – most of the people I know that have gotten it that is true for. We need to stand up and preserve our right to choose what goes into our bodies.

      Reply: I’m 67 and have had time to experiment with vaccines, etc. I am another person who can say that the ONLY time I ever have gotten the flu is when I allowed myself to be vaccinated for the flu. I now refuse all vaccines. They are disease spreaders, not cures or prevention for anything.

      • DaveH

        Well, they do prevent Poverty for Big Pharma.

      • akmac64

        Contrary to popular ignorant belief, a flu shot that uses killed or inactivated virus cannot cause the flu. Ignorance kills, not vaccinations.

        • DaveH

          Then you should not be alive, Akmac64.
          Get a clue:

          It particularly annoys me when ignorant people call others “ignorant”.

    • One-Angel

      Dear Disgusted. This actually happened to me, too. A local hospital bought the clinic for which I work. Our first year as hospital employees we were also threatened with job termination if we did not accept the then H1N1 mandatory vaccination. I made a big stink and even wrote my congressman, who wrote back saying that he was against mandatory vaccination and would not vote for this if it came up in Congress. I told this to my supervisor. At the last minute, the hospital withdrew its mandatory vaccination policy, but we still had to sign a waiver that said if we got sick we had to take off without pay, and we also had to do an online course as to why the vaccination was a great idea. (It was basically propaganda, but it was better than taking the shot.) That was two years ago and I still refuse to be vaccinated. I followed Dr.Joseph Mercola’s advice about staying well and I have not been sick. On the otherhand, the others who took the flu vaccine, including one doctor, still got sick. Will they ever learn? Good luck, but stand up for yourself, too. I was prepared to quit my job.

  • Blogengeezer

    Polio, Measles, etc, seemed to function as advertised in the Common Sense moral mentality, limited litigation of bygone years. After that period ended in the 1960′s, the artificially created, media promoted ‘Crisis’ mentality prevailed and profit ruled. The stock market quickly became rampant with big pharma’s daily stock reports. Politicians profited and retained their Forever positions based on lobbyists and kickbacks. Insider information made countless investors wealthy, including the politicos that ‘drummed’ their govt ‘forced’ consumption. Without Term Limits and Tort Reform, I see no change or return to, ‘Freedom of Choice’ in sight… If anything, big govt will be growing ever more like ‘Godzilla’. Vote based on educated choices (unlike 2008). It’s now become a matter of life or death…Yours.

  • David

    Reading the warning labels on flu shot bottles shows that taking a flu shot can cause serious complications, including bleeding, severe allergic reactions, temporary paralysis, seizures, inflammation of brain and spinal cord, dysfunction of nerves in the eyes, face and arms, shortness of breath and chest pain. Maybe half of healthcare workers do not get the flu shot because they are the ones who read the label on the flu shot bottles!
    why take the risk and who can trust any information doctors or Pharma give out?

  • Bill

    This article failed to include one item. How much money does Rick Perry get from the big drug companies.

  • akmac64

    Adverse events have to be reported, however, that does NOT mean there is a causal relationship between the immunization and the other events.

  • akmac64

    What is remarkable is the American public’s willingness to believe any wild conspiracy theory that comes down the pike. Equally frightening is the rejection of facts for opinion and the inability to tell the difference. It is no wonder that this country is losing its previous superiority in the scientific community. At this rate some of you will advocate for burning scientists at the stake.

    • DaveH

      You are the poster child, Akmac64, for the propagandized sheeple that are being churned out of our public schools. What an ignoramus.

      • DaveH

        Dr. Rima:
        From the article:
        “1. No vaccine has ever been evaluated through a double blind, placebo controlled study to determine if it actually has any preventive or mitigating effect on the disease of interest
        2. Epidemiologists can successfully predict pandemics, epidemics and outbreaks of any given disease by tracking vaccination programs: the larger the program, the more widespread the outbreak of the disease.
        3. Although US law requires all vaccines to be tested for safety and efficacy, no influenza vaccine has ever been so tested
        4. Adjuvants like aluminum, squalene and other oil and water adjuvants, etc., are known to be toxic to multiple organ systems but are never tested for safety before they are added to vaccines
        5. Preservatives like Polysorbate 80 (also known as “Tween 80″) are associated with infertility
        6. Numerous studies show that influenza shots increase chances of dying from any cause by 3 fold, increase the development of serious conditions such as asthma which lead to hospitalization by 6 fold and, if given consecutively for 5 years, increase the chance of developing Alzheimer’s Disease by 600% although they have been shown not to provide any protection against flu whatsoever
        7. Virtually all epidemics and outbreaks of communicable diseases in the modern world occur in fully vaccinated populations”.

        Above all, Ignorant Akmac64, we are not asking that you don’t take the vaccinations. We’re asking that fools like yourself don’t force your choices on the rest of us.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      THOUMP!!!! he’s sucked back in again!!!

  • Temporary Resident

    akmac64 is probably being paid.

    I understand that when one gets a “bug” the body creates antibodies to kill it and those antibodies or their blueprint remains in you to protect you for the rest of your life. So, it is a good thing to catch that particular strain, the more you ‘catch’ the more protected. The trick is to stay so healthy that ‘bug’ can not do more than get you a little run down for a few days.

    Vaccines purpose is to create antibodies without actually harming the body. If HPV can be stopped with man made created antibodies one reasons the body can create it’s own when a person gets it? And if not, then how does the man made virus/vaccine stimulate the body to produce antibodies?

    Something to research: which human catchable viruses do not stimulate antibody production in humans and why not. Perhaps those in the business of ‘curing’ disease can fix that.
