Here is what former Merck physician Dr. Bernard Dalbergue actually said about Gardasil, Merck’s HPV vaccine:
I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune! In addition, decision-makers at all levels are aware of it! Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS, and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine.
Meanwhile, the federal government’s National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) is more concerned that “adult vaccination rates remain low in the United States,” and is planning to ramp up efforts to hit goals set in Healthy People 2020, a US Health and Human Services (HHS) initiative. The NVPO has just released a draft of its National Adult Immunization Plan.
Most of the plan has to do with increasing awareness of and access to adult vaccinations. However, given the dangers that have been associated with vaccination, ANH-USA is concerned about the project. Here are a couple of things we would like to see added to NVPO’s plan:
- Eliminate dangerous ingredients from vaccines: If government health policy is to push for mass vaccination, dangerous ingredients like mercury and aluminum should be removed from all vaccines. While mercury has been phased out of most vaccines, some flu vaccines still include this dangerous ingredient, which studies have linked to severe neurological effects. Increasingly, mercury is being replaced by aluminum, which has also been shown to pose serious health risks. These and any other potentially dangerous ingredients should be removed from vaccines.
- Include vaccine AERs in safety assessments: Post-approval, government health officials refuse to study vaccines’ long-term safety record. If mass vaccination is the government’s goal, then all vaccine adverse event reports (AERs) should be carefully studied and considered when making vaccine recommendations. It’s vital that the short- and long-term impact of vaccines be carefully studied by an independent, nongovernmental body. Utilizing AERs to inform vaccine recommendations will help avoid dangerous vaccines like Gardasil and keep the public safe and healthy.
- Listen to questions and concerns about vaccines and make an effort to address them, rather than arrogantly dismissing them as quackery, ignorance, and anti-science. What is scientific about attacking critics or trying to force them to comply with the full powers of government instead of dispassionately discussing the facts? If the science behind vaccines is good, let the facts speak for themselves. If there are problems, admit them, don’t sweep them under the rug, and fix them.
- Above all, get some distance between government and industry, so that decisions are not based on (or appear to be based on) money.
Action Alert! Tell NVPO that vaccine policy in this country should take into account the well-documented safety concerns posed by dangerous ingredients, and that adverse event reports should be used to inform government policy on mass vaccinations. Please send your message immediately!
