16 New Deaths Reportedly Associated with Gardasil Vaccine

. By
San Francisco, CAAn examination of FDA records made public through the Freedom of Information Act, reportedly shows that 16 new deaths (including four suicides) were associated with Gardasil, the cervical cancer vaccine made by Merck.

A report in the SF Examiner, published this week also states that 3,589 adverse reactions to the vaccine were reported in the 16 month period between May 2009 and September 2010.

A 13-year old girl is among the fatalities, and two families, one in Maryland and the other in New York, also lost their daughters after they dropped dead shortly after getting the vaccine. Both girls were college aged. And, in 2008, a fourth girl in Maryland reportedly suffered a major stroke only days after receiving her second Gardasil injection.

The mother of 18-year old Christina Tarsell accused Merck of misrepresenting her daughter's case in the report the company sent to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Christina died just 18 days after receiving the vaccine.

"Merck said in its VAERS report that a physician reported that my daughter had an enlarged spleen caused by a virus that was life threatening," Tarsell told The Examiner. "That was totally made up. The autopsy report listed the cause of her death as 'undetermined,' a follow-up by CDC found no evidence of a viral infection, and the pathologist and her doctors all denied telling them that."

My 26 year old daughter Stephanie has been hospitilized 86 times since her vaccine, diagnosed with gastro paresis, we can not get her batch number or dates from Kaiser to even file a report. She has been unable to work since, she has incurred 2 million in hospital bills has run out of insurance. Many girls have been injured by this vaccine and or died. I think it is horrendous! We can not find a doctor to even listen to us She is getting ready to apply for disability as this year alone, since January 1 she has had 7 trips to the hospital stays lasting from 5 days to 14 What kind of life is this and what is MERCK doing??? Shame on them for theis GardisHELL!

My daughter, now 16 y/o, received this shot several years ago for school records. We did not want it, but was basically forced into it due to immunization records. She has been sick since. She has extreme fatigue, constant reflux/indigestion, several trips to er with throwing up and dehydration, bladder/uti infections, depression, and the lists continues to grow!

I'm furious over the quality of life this has taken from my once vibtant daughter.

I just spoke to an acquaintance of mine, 13 yrs old, who was informed that she was to receive a vaccination ( either through the school or DHS, or public nurse), that was for the prevention of some sort of cancer, for girls. She was not told any specifics, her mother was just told that she needed it, like it was a routine shot like polio or something like that. Her mother does not speak english so she tends to believe anything she is told by the community services people, without question. I know this girl is not promiscuous, and her mother is very strict and a very moral person. If she knew why this vaccine is given, and for whom it is directed (sexually active girls), and if she knew of all the risks that go along with it, she would NOT allow her daughter to have it. I think it is terrible that the drug companies take advantage of these immigrants or less educated people, to make a huge profit, without any concern for the lives of these young people. And it's true, they are letting them think that they have to get this vaccine to continue attending school. I would not have beleived it if I hadn't seen it happen, with this acquaintance of mine. I of course warned her of it and encouraged her to tell her mother to research it and ask more questions.
