Insufficient Evidence to Claim That Merck’s Gardasil and Glaxo’s Cerverix, Have Been Shown to Prevent Cervical Cancer
by John Gilmore – Long Beach, NY


A new study published in the prestigious Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine shows that in the studies published so far there is insufficient evidence to claim that either of the two human papilloma virus vaccines, Merck’s Gardasil and Glaxo’s Cerverix, have been shown to prevent cervical cancer.

Despite the lack of evidence that these products even work, the vaccine industry’s allies in the New York legislature are hard at work trying to force our children to get HPV vaccines, with our consent as parents or not. Right now there is a bill in the New York legislature S298b (Hoylman-D)/A2912a (Paulin-D) that would force all children in the state to get Merck’s Gardasil, the only HPV vaccine licensed in the US, or lose the right to attend school. And there are two bills S3899b (Krueger-D)/A973 (Paulin-D) and SS4244(Krueger-D)/ A6564 (Fahy-D) that would eliminate parents’ right to know what vaccines and drugs are given to our children, primarily to help Merck sell more Gardasil, which is the most expensive vaccine currently sold in the US, and the most heavily marketed vaccine not currently required to go to school in the overwhelming majority of States.

If the lack of evidence of efficacy wasn’t enough, Merck’s Gardasil has a terrible safety record, and Merck is a serial felon with an established record of covering up injuries and deaths caused by their products and lying to regulatory agencies.

Gardasil has a terrible safety record

According to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System as of 7/14/2019 there have been 62,687 reported adverse incidents with HPV vaccines, including 510 deaths, 15,413 emergency room visits, 6,309 hospitalizations, and 3,031 permanent disabilities. According to a federal Department of Health and Human Services study, fewer than 1% of all vaccine adverse events are reported. The safety record for HPV vaccines is so troubling that Japan ended their recommendation of HPV vaccination for Japanese girls in 2014.

Since 2000, Merck has paid more than $10 billion in the US in penalties, fines, and settlements for a wide range of criminal activities, including damages related to at least 60,000 deaths caused by Merck’s Vioxx product, a side effect known to Merck, but kept from the public and regulatory agencies. The time period when Merck was marketing Vioxx, 1999-2004, is the same period that Merck was developing Gardasil, which was licensed after an expedited safety and efficacy review by the FDA in 2006. Merck has also paid $800 million in fines for submitting false claims to the US government, and $345 million for bribery and kickbacks.

Merck is charged with submitting fraudulent documents in the Gardasil licensing process. A lawsuit is under way in California, Robi v. Merck, that alleges Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, submitted fraudulent safety and efficacy data to the federal government during the licensing process. And there are class actions concerning Gardasil around the world in Israel, Columbia, Denmark, Canada and other countries.
