Gardasil Adverse Events Include Deaths, Seizures, Judicial Watch Says


There have been 3,461 reports of adverse events, including a maximum of 11 deaths, in patients receiving Merck’s cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil, public interest group Judicial Watch said.

Since May, the group has found documents detailing 1,824 reports of adverse reactions to Gardasil (quadrivalent human papillomavirus [Types 6, 11, 16, 18] recombinant vaccine), including eight deaths. Before May, Judicial Watch had obtained 1,637 adverse event reports. The group received the data from the FDA through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Of the 1,824 adverse events reported between May 10 and Sept. 7, 347 were serious reactions including paralysis, Bell’s palsy, Guillain-Barre syndrome and seizures, according to the group.

Thirty-three out of 77 pregnant women who received the vaccine experienced side effects, including spontaneous abortion and fetal abnormalities, Judicial Watch added.

“In light of this information, it is disturbing that state and local governments might mandate in any way this vaccine for young girls,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.

    My 17 y.o. daughter had her second Gardasil shot the end of January 2008. Immediately, thereafter, she had six weeks of serious stomach issues. On March 30th, she began having seizures. She has undergone many tests, including CT scans, MRI’s, EEG’s and she is currently hospital at an epilepsy center.

    If anyone else has a similiar story, please contact me. The neurologists are identifying my daughter as “stressed” and we strongly believe that my daughter’s seizures are as a result of Gardasil. Doctors say, medically there is no proof!

    Please beware!
