Petition: Investigate Gardasil Vaccine Risks Now!
« on: February 26, 2009, 08:23:23 pm »

                             Investigate Gardasil Vaccine Risks Now!

Petition Drive:

The National Vaccine Information Center is
petitioning President Barack Obama and Congress on behalf of families to
investigate Gardasil vaccine deaths and serious injuries NOW!


Gardasil vaccine was fast tracked and licensed by the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) in 2006 and immediately recommended by the Centers for
Disease Control (CDC) for universal use by all 11-12 year old girls,
teenagers and young women to age
26; and

- Merck, the drug company marketing Gardasil, was required by federal health
agencies to study Gardasil side effects in only about 1200 girls 16 years
old and younger and follow them up for less than two years before getting a
license; and

- Merck was not required by federal health agencies to use a true placebo in
pre-licensure clinical trials but compared Gardasil against a placebo that
contained an unknown amount of aluminum, potentially masking the true
reactivity of Gardasil, which also contains aluminum; and

- The deaths and serious health problems experienced by participants
receiving Gardasil in pre-licensure clinical trials were written off by
Merck as a coincidence
; and

- The thousands of adverse events reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse
Events Reporting System (VAERS) since Gardasil has been licensed, including
deaths and serious health problems involving emergency room visits,
hospitalizations, and permanent injuries, have been written off by federal
health agencies as a coincidence
; and

- A comparison of serious adverse events, such as death, stroke, blood
clots, cardiac arrest, seizures, fainting, lupus, and rechallenge cases,
reported to VAERS after Gardasil vaccination and meningococcal (Menactra)
vaccination reveal that these events are reported three to 30 times more
frequently after Gardasil vaccination
; and

- Doctors and parents are not being informed by federal agencies or Merck
about all serious adverse events associated with Gardasil
so steps can be
taken to monitor vaccine reactions and prevent injury and death; and

- The hallmark of good government is honesty, accountability and
transparency; and

- President Barack Obama and members of Congress have pledged to improve
government honesty, accountability and transparency for the people of the
United States;


We call on President Barack Obama, his Administration and the U.S. Congress
to investigate the expedited licensing and universal use recommendation by
federal health agencies that all girls aged 11-12 years old and young women
up to age 26 receive three doses of Gardasil; and further

To take action to minimize the human and economic costs of Gardasil
vaccination for individuals and the American public in order to protect the
lives of Americans who trust the government to ensure that vaccines licensed
for public use are safe, effective and necessary.
