Many teenagers have developed serious health issues and some young people have died following HPV vaccination with most post mortem results unable to show a conclusive cause of death. The majority of these teenagers and young women all were perfectly healthy prior to vaccination and then after vaccination developed health issues which have become difficult to diagnose and treat. The common factor with all these young people is the HPV vaccine. According to Merck’s own recent trials with Gardasil 9, using Gardasil as a comparison, the number of serious adverse reactions for Gardasil was identified as 2,500/100,000. How can we as a country consider this risk acceptable? Please sign our petition to support having a roundtable discussion at Edinburgh between medical professionals and scientists from both sides of the debate to consider the safety of the HPV vaccines in greater detail.
