Drafting – Parents of a 12-year-old girl report that her daughter was bedridden after being inoculated with the human papilloma vaccine in the province of Nazca in Peru.
Jimena, who is called La Petite, was inoculated with the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine in a posta de una paraica in the province of Nasca. Soon after, the girl began to feel "tired, agitated, sleepy,lose weight, hurt her legs, arms. It's an autoimmune encephalitis, but they don't know what it's for. It's probably triggered by the vaccine, "says his mother.
According to the Doctor Eduardo Verne, the reaction of the girl could be due to a previous health problem that was activated with the vaccine, which is known as "coincidental effect".
The girl was transferred to Lima's children's Hospital since her condition was severe, however, shortly after she was discharged. His parents now take care of her from home and with very few resources.
Human papilloma virus HPV
human papilloma virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the world. Almost all women and men will contract at least one type of HPV at some point in their lives. Approximately 80 million people have it in the United States.Human Papilloma Virus in 3d
The scientific community has identified to date 150 types of HPV. nine out of ten infections disappear on their own without showing any symptoms or health problems.
However, when the virus does not go away by itself, it can cause warts and certain types of cancer. In fact, HPV causes 30,700 cases of cancer a year alone in the United States.
To protect against this virus, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved at the beginning of 2006 three vaccines, with the idea of preventing 28,000 cases of cancer annually in the country.
The vaccine prevents infection with HPV types that are associated with:
Cervical cancer in women
Vaginal and vulvar cancers in women
Cancer in women and men
Throat cancer in women and men
Male penis cancer
Genital wartsBritish physician Edward Jenner invented the first smallpox vaccine in 1796
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that the vaccine should be applied in several doses from 9 to 26 years of age. The HPV vaccine is usually a given injection into the arm muscle. For about a decade, the CDC recommends that physicians administer the HPV vaccine in a three-dose series for six months. However, in 2016, the agency changed the recommendation to include two dosage programs based on a person's age.
Side effects of vaccines
Vaccines for HPV prevention have needed years of clinical trials conducted in more than 30,000 people before FDA approval. The effects recorded in these clinical trials are as follows:
Eight out of ten people experienced pain at the injection site
One in four suffered redness in the area
One in three had a slight headache
One in ten had a mild fever and one in every 65 had high fever
According to data from the United States vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), 26 girls were killed by side effects of the HPV vaccine from September 2010 to September 2011.
From June 2006 to March 2014, approximately 67 million doses of Gardasil (HPV vaccine) were distributed in the United States. The VAERS received a total of 25.063 reports of adverse events in 22.867 women and 2.196 men after HPV vaccination.
Of Gardasil's total reports, 7.6% were classified as serious, which means that they resulted in permanent disability, hospitalization, life-threatening illnesses or death. In these cases, headache, nausea, vomiting and fever were the most common symptoms in men and women. Only in 2009, 12.8% of the reports to VAERS were classified as serious. In 2013 (the last full year of reporting), 7.4% was classified as serious.
Among the 92.4% that were classified as non-serious fainting, dizziness, nausea, headache and fever were the most commonly reported in women. dizziness, fainting, pallor, headache, and loss of consciousness were the most common symptoms in men. In general, the most commonly reported local symptoms were pain at the injection site and redness.
Researchers warn of vaccine risks
More and more researchers are questioning whether it is really worth risking the possible side effects of vaccines. The type of cancer that helps prevent VHP vaccine is cervical cancer, which is usually completely curable if detected early. With a simple test, pap smear, cancer of the cervix can be detected early.
They say that families should be informed of the real risks of fatal side effects of the vaccine so that they can make an informed decision.
Dr. Diane Harper, One of the main investigators who helped develop the Gardasil vaccine against HPV, says: "It is very strange, to force vaccinate for an infection that in 95% of the cases does not develop. 95% of women who are infected with HPV will never get sick. "
On the other hand, this researcher assures that the vaccine has a limited effectiveness in time, usually 5 years, so "if we vaccinate an 11 year old child and the protection does not last (...) We have exposed this child to side effects without any benefit. "
Vaccines in the Trump administration's point of viewAccording to a study financed by the Danish Government, the triple vaccine kills more children than the three diseases that "prevent" together.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Could be appointed by Donald Trump to chair a commission to investigate vaccine safety. This movement is likely to be due to Trump's younger son having an autistic spectrum disease. Mr Kennedy has been campaigning for more vaccine safety studies for years.
A group of scientists sent to Africa by the Danish Government conducted a study between two groups of children, those who had been inoculated with the DTaP vaccine, the most widespread vaccine in the world, and another group of children who had not Received the vaccine.
The result was that children who had been vaccinated were 10 times more likely to die in the next two months than other children. Scientists concluded that this vaccine is killing more people than the three diseases it fights together, diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis.
