That article reads like propoganda to me.   Has anyone validated if the statements in that article are accurate? The words "body count" to describe alledged deaths seems very suspcious to me - like someone who's taking pleasure in trying to cause fear.  We can't believe everything we read on the internet.  People should get the facts and make their decisions, but I'm not sure the woman who was first diagnosed with M.S. and then changed it to a reaction to Guardasil so she and her lawyers could sue is a good example of facts.

I also, would not trust any statements the include the words "body count" either.  That is not how professionals would describe deaths due to a drug reaction.  I absolutely DETEST unscrupulous lawyers, and I feel this is just another case of just that.

Not mentioning the vast amt of lesser injuries to the public, how many deaths are required, before our government  determines that a drug company's billion dollar drug is not safe for US citizens ?   25? 50?  75? .....  must be higher it looks like. In terms of deaths, maybe it will surpass Vioxx

Based on all of the information we have today, CDC recommends HPV vaccination for the prevention of most types of cervical cancer. As with all approved vaccines, CDC and FDA will continue to closely monitor the safety of HPV vaccines. Any problems detected with these vaccines will be reported to health officials, healthcare providers, and the public and needed action will be taken to ensure the public's health and safety.

I still would vaccinate my child.  I read the entire article, and it appears the deaths could NOT be attributed to the vacine.  Other factors, such as birth control, smoking, and obesity are also factors in these deaths.  There is no increase in deaths due to the vacine.  AND  Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) occurs in 1-2 out of every 100,000 people in their teens. A number of infections have been associated with GBS. There has been no indication that Gardasil®increases the rate of GBS above the rate expected in the general population, whether or not they were vaccinated.

So, out of 40 MILLION vacinated children, there were 20,096 reports of adverse events following Gardasil® 

The vast majority (92%) of the adverse events reports following Gardasil®vaccination were mild and included, pain and swelling at the injection site (the arm), fever, dizziness, nausea, and fainting.Syncop e(fainting) is common after injections and vaccinations, especially in adolescents. Falls after fainting may sometimes cause serious injuries, such as head injuries, which can be prevented by closely observing the person for 15 minutes after vaccination.

So, I personally, would opt to vaccinate my child, rather than risk the chance of cancer down the road.

Rather than discourage the use of this vaccine, I believe this article reinforces the relative safety of it.
