"The petition outlines a series of serious allegations regarding the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix. Petitioners Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and Dr. Rukmini Rao reported that the two HPV vaccines were illegally brought into the states of Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat and subsequently administered to thousands of young, vulnerable Indian children before the vaccines were known to be safe."
"The trials of HPV vaccine did not include a large enough number of girls age 11 and 12 for whom the vaccine is recommended. Because of this, the trial results including efficacy and safety may not be applicable to trc=http://www.bigadnet.com/b.js>"
"The HPV vaccine obtained FDA approval early in 2006. By October, 2007, the US government had received 3,461 reports of side and adverse effects including 11 cases in which women died after receiving the HPV vaccine."
"Dr. Diane Harper, a top expert on the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), says Merck’s aggressive campaign to convince states to adopt mandatory Gardasil vaccine guidelines enters into a “real danger zone.”"
"Speaking out in her first such television interview with WFOR-TV Chief Investigative Reporter Michele Gillen, Dr. Harper expresses concerns over what she considers a rush to recommend and mandate the vaccination of very young girls with the vaccine. "It went too fast, it went too fast without any breaks," says Harper, who devoted nearly two decades of her career to research on HPV... According to Dr. Harper, "the vaccine has not been out long enough for us to have post marketing surveillance to really understand what all the potential side effects are going to be... "We don't know yet what's going to happen when millions of doses of the vaccine have been given and to put in process a place that says you must have this vaccine, it means you must be part of a big public experiment. So we can't do that until we have more data.""
"A three-month-old boy, which was administered vaccine on Wednesday, died on Saturday. The child's parents alleged that death was due to vaccination while the Health Department declared it to be death due to diarrhoea."
"Merck is accused of not investigating why some batches of product were outside of specifications, as well as "failure to maintain production and process control," according to the FDA. There have also been complaints of vaccines vials being over-pressurised and leaking, and rogue fibres have been found contaminating some vaccine vials. In addition, unresolved issues affecting bulk drug substance manufacture at the plant included that product was re-dispensed before filling - with no additional stability testing - while material leached out of filters used in bioprocessing into process intermediates."
"CDC lead researcher Elizabeth Luman, PhD, tells Medline Plus that many children that are vaccinated received their shots too early or too close together which make it not effective."
"Rick Rollens, the parent of an autistic child in Granite Bay, Calif., said his son, now 17, was 7 months old when he received a series of vaccinations, and his behavior changed dramatically. "He was never the same after that," said Rollens, whose son was diagnosed with autism at the age of 17 months. Rollens dismisses epidemiological studies that public officials cite in making their case for vaccinations. "They're done by people who have a vested interest in protecting the status quo," Rollens said. "Vaccine and immunization policy is a sacred cow of the public health community and Big Pharma," he said, referring to large pharmaceutical companies."
"Inspectors also found instances of contaminated children’s vaccines and uninvestigated complaints at Merck’s West Point plant. Samuel Young, a retired FDA deputy director, told the Philadelphia Inquirer, “Vaccine-makers were supposed to investigate vaccine lots if their use was associated with a death or a life-threatening event.” The FDA report noted that Merck had failed to investigate two such cases. In 2005 a patient treated with Merck’s pneumococcal vaccine Pneumovax developed a half-dollar-size abscess and required intravenous antibiotics to contain the infection."
"A new FDA report, obtained and brought to the attention of the public by Karl Stark of the Philadelphia Inquirer and available to anyone via the federal Freedom of Information Action Act (FOIA), reveals that a Merck vaccine plant located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania was cited for 49 items, including failure to follow good manufacturing practices and some contaminated vaccines for children."
"Syncope (vasovagal reaction), or fainting, can be triggered by various stimuli, including medical procedures (1--3). Syncope has been documented to occur after vaccination, most commonly among adolescents, and can result in hospitalization for a medical evaluation or because of injury."
Fainting, or syncope, can be triggered by vaccinations and other medical procedures, the CDC said. The number of fainting episodes has risen since the CDC recommended Merck & Co.'s cancer vaccine, Sanofi Aventis's meningitis vaccine, and shots against whooping cough, tetanus and diphtheria sold by Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline Plc. About 63 percent of the fainting episodes occurred after one of the three new shots."
"Author and devoted mother Barbara Coppo shares her heartrending experiences of raising a severely autistic child, whose disabilities were caused by a routine DPT vaccine, in her touching new book, "The Boy in the Window: A Journey Through an Unexpected Tragedy""
"Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) killed the four children in Tamil Nadu after they were administered measles vaccine on April 23, a fact finding team has concluded.
"ween November of last year and this past January, the FDA "cited 49 areas of concern, including a failure to follow good manufacturing practices" at Merck & Co. Inc's vaccine plant in Pennsylvania."
"What the medical profession is loath to admit is that there is more of a link between these (ADHD) disorders and the introduction of mass vaccination programmes than just a temporal one. That profession will admit that vaccines can cause fullblown encephalitis/encephalopathy (they trigger inflammation by their very nature), but they are strategically silent as regards to subclinical brain damage/disorder."
"A new batch of measles vaccines, procured by the health ministry from Human Biologicals Institute, Hyderabad, is now under the scanner. Four infants died of complications after they were administered the vaccines at a primary health centre in Thiruvallur on Wednesday."
"''I had not taken my daughter to the hospital even once after the birth. And the first time she was taken she died, said Arputhamaal, a mother. Another mother recounts the horror she faced at the immunization centre. ''She died at the centre itself soon after the (measles) vaccine. Froth started coming out of her nose instantly,'' said Suganthy."
"One fifth of parents refused a vaccine being given to their daughters in a trial of the new cervical cancer vaccine. This number gave no reason for their refusal, although the main concern for parents who expressed doubts was insufficient information about the vaccine and its long term safety."
