**EDIT**
I'm trying to be helpful. I'm trying to provide important information to the young women out there about the HPV vaccine. The government is trying to make it a mandatory vaccine that all girls have to get. Given the adverse reactions below, I think it is important to weigh how horribly bad they are to the good. If you plan on commenting to be rude, to be a forum troll, or anything else... please pass on by. Don't waste your time here if you don't want to. No one is making you read this so move on along. KEEP COMMENTS RELEVANT. Please respect that.

I've been reading about this for months now, and there are so many reports of adverse effects resulting from this vaccination. Health experts don't even know what the long-term effects of this vaccination are because they haven't tested it long enough. Is it really worth protecting yourself from four strains of HPV at the potential cost of your health or life?

It's a little scary. Some women are going in for pap smears 6 months after having the vaccine and they're coming back abnormal. I've been considering getting this vaccine, but after what I've read I think I'll hold off on it until I really know what the side effects are.


"my daughter had hpv vaccine on 6/25/07 - fainted and had two seizures immediately after injection
posted @ Tuesday, July 03, 2007 11:27 AM by kim kimes".



7/14/06 - First report of an adverse reaction filed with the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a program of the Department of Health & Human Services in which the CDC and FDA work together. On 7/11, a 14 year old girl in DC fainted and fell off the examining table after receiving the vaccine; at the emergency room, she had a headache and speech problems.


This one could just be a coincidence, I just don't know:

7/20/06 - Seven days after being vaccinated, a 16 year old girl developed symptoms of Guillian-Barre Syndrome, an immune disorder with weakness, tingling, and other neurological abnormalities.


Here are some of the adverse reactions that are listed in one of the .pdf files by the Judicial Watch who excerpted the VAERS database entries for Gardasil:

149 - Hospitalized
53 - Permanent Disability
239 - Syncope (loss of consciousness)
99 - Neuro (includes references to neurologist, neurological, neuro exam)
7 - Guillian-Barre

.pdf file here

This isn't everything, but it's a lot of what stuck out. If you're thinking about getting this vaccine, look more closely into it. I don't want you to be hurt by it. They just do not know the long term affects of this vaccine because it was not tested long enough. I hope that this helps a few women out there. Stay safe.

Those are all blogs and unsupported statements... How should we believe in it?

How about giving us some statements from reliable health sites or professionals?

Sure.

VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) has had a bunch of people report medical documented related effects from the shot. I posted a link to one of the PDF files that has a bunch of effects that occurred after having the Gardasil shot administered.

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is requesting that he government not make it a mandatory vaccine because they feel it was not tested long enough. NVIC, I know, is a private advocacy group

But yes, there are a lot of blog entries. But girls with no history of seizures or allergies suddenly being affected by the shot immediately after having the 1st out of the three shots given is something that holds a red flag to me. NVIC things that more testing should be done because they believe that there wasn't enough testing done. We don't know the long-term effects.

From my perspective, the most important thing is for parents to know that these side effects have been reported and that critical questions are unanswered.

If I remember correctly, you can only get it between certain ages.

Not everybody react negatively to it. Some girls seem to come out of it well off. But there are people, parents, some doctors and very few organizations who are concerned about if there will be long-term effects of the vaccine. 10 years from now possible side-effects? They just don't know.

Some girls, however, after 6 months of getting the vaccine done completely, start having abnormal pap smears. It could be coincidence, but at the same time I feel it should be looked into a little more. It goes for any vaccine.

it's like that with most vaccinations, that's why i don't get stuff like that injected into me. most of the vaccines are quite unnecessary if not stupid.
