I’d like to take a moment to remember Jenny Tetlock, whose story has been publicized. Jenny Tetlock received the Gardasil shot at 15 years of age, was paralyzed and God rest her soul, recently passed away. Bless you Jenny. Your story is heartbreaking, and we all feel your loss. Jenny, we want to find answers. Who knows where to look? Not to the CDC. Maybe to Spain. Why Spain? A month ago, Spain recalled 76,000 doses of the HPV vaccine when two adolescent girls got seriously sick after getting their shot. Here in the United States, we’ve had more than two girls who got sick and to my knowledge NO doses of the vaccine were ever recalled. The issue here is that two girls got sick after receiving doses of the HPV vaccine and Spain responded immediately. Has our own FDA done anything? Not to my knowledge.
If we came across 50, 40, 30 or even a single dead person in the woods, our agencies would send out alerts; they would investigate. They would search and search for the answers until they were found. The VAER Database Gardasil line reports list more than a dozen deaths among the serious adverse events of otherwise healthy girls. Isn’t this enough of an alert that someone among us should step up and search and search for the answers until they were found?
There is a common denominator that we haven’t yet exposed. That is my point. We must uncover that lethal factor; we must identify it so that not one more girl dies needlessly.
But here it is in black and white:
Spain withdraws cervical cancer shot after illnesses.
We’ll let it pass that Gardasil is an HPV vaccine, and not a cancer shot. (That’s a marketing angle to avoid talking about the percentages. Let’s also let it pass that while it’s marketed as a cancer preventative, it only goes after 4/30 of the HPV strains that cause 70% cervical cancers. That works out to be like 9%. Would you use a prophylactic that only guards against 9% of pregnancies? Should we let people go around thinking they are protected when they are 91% still vulnerable? Let’s let all of that pass, for now, and think about the human cost of rushing to market.
The two girls in Spain who had the vaccine both went into convulsions within hours of taking the vaccine.
Therefore, Spain decided to recall 76,000 doses of Gardasil after two girls had seizures. But the FDA has not—after many more than two girls —have died! Does Spain love its daughters more than the U.S.? Why hasn’t the FDA acted on the many incidents that have happened here? Are the FDA and CDC really on top of things? Is the U.S. even looking at the VAERS LIST to see how many girls in the U.S. have had adverse reactions after taking Gardasil—let alone those who have died? In Spain, two girls had seizures—seizures—and they didn’t die, but yet 76,000 doses of Gardasil were recalled.
VAERS reports are available online. Look them up yourself. Results show significantly more than just two incidents related to Gardasil and all of the girls had one thing in common—the Gardasil shot. While Spain has recalled 76,000 doses of Gardasil, the U.S. is trying to mandate its use. What is wrong with this picture?
At the least, any use of Gardasil should be a matter of choice. As Americans, our young girls and their parents should have a choice when it comes to health and make that choice with knowledge including contraindication and negative interactions. Shouldn’t the FDA and CDC be LOOKING for those contraindication and negative interactions to safe guard the health of our young girls?
Many unanswered questions remain of why so many American girls have had adverse reactions—some dying after taking Gardasil. They and their families deserve an answer. But for the seven women that I personally know whose daughters died after taking Gardasil, and for Jenny—no matter how soon the answer is found—it is too late!
