A government advisory committee that advises the Centers for Disease Control on vaccine recommendations has urged the CDC to recommend the HPV shot Gardasil to be given to boys between the ages of 11 and 12.
Gardasil is already recommended to young girls, and in California girls as young as 12 are able to receive the shot without parental consent. The recommendation falls perfectly in line with Merck’s latest campaign to expand the Gardasil demographic to young boys, with their deceptive ad campaign marketed specifically towards boys. What the government advisory committee is not discussing is the fact that Gardasil was linked to 3,589 harmful reactions between May 2009 and September 2010 alone.
They also fail to mention that previous legislative decisions regarding Gardasil were found to be corrupt and riddled with monetary incentives on behalf of Merck, the maker of Gardasil.
Perhaps Merck has the almighty dollar included in this decision as well. The few thousand dollars given to each key legislator in the California decision is nothing compared to what Merck stands to gain from the legislation.
The same is very true with the advisory committee. A CDC recommendation will vastly increase profits, way beyond the recent California legislation.
In addition, health insurers typically cover vaccines that are recommended by the CDC.
In addition to routinely administering the HPV shot to boys between 11 and 12, the advisory panel is also calling for Gardasil to be given to boys as young as age 9 and for males ages 13 to 21 who have missed the “ideal vaccination age window” of 11-12.
The news comes just days after FDA documents were uncovered by Judicial Watch revealing an additional 26 deaths as a result of Gardasil use through adverse-reaction reports. In addition to the 26 deaths, the documents also detailed a number of severe side effects including seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short-term memory loss and Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
Of course the average consumer would not know about this information, as Merck fails to mention any tidbit of truth on their website or in their popular ads.
In fact, on the official Gardasil website death is not listed as a side effect of Gardasil. Instead, Merck lists only minor side effects that conflict with mainstream reports of the extreme side effects associated with Gardasil. In Merck’s ad, they market Gardasil to young boys, showcasing their desire to expand the market to the male gender. Here is the list of side effects Merck provides consumers:
- Pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site
Not only should the CDC ignore the suggestion to make Gardasil a recommended vaccine, but they should call for the immediate discontinuation of the shot due to the massive amount of evidence linking it to death and serious side effects.
