Serious Injuries Linked to HPV Vaccine
Gardasil Vaccine Lawsuit Update - October 2022
The Gardasil vaccine, manufactured by Merck & Co., was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006 for use in preventing infection from only a few of the hundreds of types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Since hitting the market, however, thousands of adolescents and adults have reported serious and disabling Gardasil side effects after receiving the HPV vaccine. The most prominent among these side effects is postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
To better assist those who are uncertain about their legal rights after suffering from serious health issues after receiving the HPV vaccine, our firm created the Gardasil Injury Compensation Guide. If you believe Gardasil may have caused autoimmune disorders or other injuries, this guide can help answer some of your questions. We have also included some helpful resources for seeking care and support groups.
Gardasil achieved FDA approval in just six months. Even one of the principal investigators of the Gardasil clinical trials (the human testing that precedes FDA approval) said the process “went too fast.”
Researcher Peter C. Gøtzsche in his book Vaccines: Truth, Lies, and Controversy noted some of the research inadequacies in the HPV vaccine clinical trials:
“It is a requirement for registration of drugs that randomized trials have been carried out where one group received the drug and the control group received placebo or nothing. This allows assessment of both the benefits and harms of drugs. I have done research on non-vaccine drugs for decades and was shocked when I learned through my work with vaccines against human papilloma virus (HPV) that the regulatory requirements are much less for vaccines. Almost all the HPV vaccine trials have a control group receiving a hepatitis vaccine or a strongly immunogenic adjuvant, which makes it impossible to find out what the harms of the HPV vaccines are.”
Today, many young women and men who received the Gardasil vaccine (FDA also approved Gardasil for boys) are suffering, and it has been a living nightmare for parents with children who experienced severe adverse reactions to the vaccine. They all trusted Gardasil, never suspecting the grave illnesses and disabilities that could follow.
