A vaccine-tracking organization is urging people to check the facts before getting a Gardasil® vaccine.

flu vaccine 620x300Severe complications from the Gardasil vaccine have been reported. Gardasil is often given to young girls and boys, especially girls, to prevent Human Papilloma Virus, the main cause of cervical cancer and genital warts. Norma Erickson, president of SaneVax, tells OneNewsNow complications from the vaccine are serious.

“There is a rather large percentage of autoimmune disorders, neurological disorders, paralysis, blindness, breathing problems, heart problems, brain inflammation,” she says. “This is taken from the VAERS Report. There have been 216 deaths reported after the administration of Gardasil or Cervarix.”

Erickson adds that HPV vaccines "have never been proven to prevent cervical cancer. They have been proven to prevent HPV infections."

“However, HPV infections are relatively benign,” she says. “According to the World Health Organization, only .015 percent of all women around the world who are exposed to high-risk HPV strains of any type, not just the ones in the vaccine, will ever go on to develop cervical cancer.”

If HPV vaccines are to be used, Erickson suggests people become fully informed first, and not buy into a vaccination if they have less information than when "they bought their last cell phone.”
