  1. All vaccines comes with side effects, not only vaccines but every medication comes with side effects, some are simple and few are life threatening.
    You have to weigh risks and benefits before going for it, ask the doctors and you decide.
    Two kids died after polio this weeks news in AP, are they going to abandon vaccine. No matter what ever precautions you take you can not prevent these unfortunate complications.
    43% of US black women have HPV, around 20% whites and 13% of teenagers and men have it. They are all potentially future cancer patients. It needs to be prevented.
    We have recently witnessed the epidemics of Bird flu and H1N1, if only we had vaccines we'd have prevented loss of life and productivity.
    The warning with H1N1 vaccine is paralysis (GBS). some unfortunate people develop autoimmune reactions to the components of the vaccine like preservatives due to their immune system reaction. There is no way to tell who'll be effected. The side effects in the links are acceptable i think and most of them are very minor.
    you have to look at the broader picture.
    we are a doctor couple and we have our daughter vaccinated and we are planning to have our son vaccinated.
    Scan the city editions of news papers you can see how many young and college kids are having unprotected sex.
    There has been a myth in West and USA that vaccines are responsible for "Autism" and there have been dozens of law suits. Years of studies has disproved that and the Federal Drug authority, USA has closed this issue this week.
    The drug companies are not charity organization.
    The risk of run over by a lorry, school bus or hit by an auto is probably thousands of times more than a complication from vaccine.

  2. Respected Anonymous doctor,

    Thanks for the response.

    Not only as a parent who stood in the first line for the vaccine and shots to our child
    ( who completed the prescribed vaccination schedule ) but also, as a vaccine promoter for hundreds of parents and children from rural and semi-urban sections everyday,
    I want know more about this controversy.

    Dear doctor, please note that It is about one particular vaccine but not on the ENTIRE vaccination process.

    Once again, Thank you very much.
    Have a good day and please keep us informed.

  3. Please reaad the following papers presented to the FDA this week. Then decide if you still wish your daughters to have this vaccine

  4. Respected anonymous doctor/sir/madam/s..

    We will be glad to know your identity.

    We are common people with normal fears,
    hesitations and doubts.

    We respect science and believe in medicine.
    Your identity will give us more confidence and strength.

    Our child,who is a MEDICO, already finished her Gardasil schedule a week ago in her Medical College along with her friends.
    She came across the controversy in the Deccan Chronicle, yesterday ,when one of the panicstruck medico(she too had Gardasil ), passed on the news.
    We are concerned about the promotion we give at our own children hospital.
    We will be glad , if professionals with identity respond to this.
    And, let us know more and that will definitely help us.Morally.
    And, we can pass on to many.

  5. Yes I am happy to share my identity. I am the UK journalist Christina England. I write on adverse reactions to vaccines, Shaken Baby Syndrome, MSBP and false allegations of child abuse.

    I write for American Chronicle/Weekly Blitz/VacTruth.

    Today I have an important article on Gardasil and Cervarix being published and will send you a link in a few hours.


  6. As promised

    I have read a few news stories in Indian press demonizing Merck and suggesting that MSD is using innocent Indian women to experiment with Gardasil. I have also seen the comments on your blog. This vaccine is already approved here in the US and many millions of women have been immunized here. If poor women in Gujarat or Khammam in AP are being rounded up to be vaccinated, I don't know the reason or even who is paying for the vaccinations three times Rs. 2,800.

    Gardasil was in the news immediately after its approval by FDA in 2006. It became controversial after some states proposed legislation to allow mandatory vaccination of pre-teen girls in schools. On February 2, 2007, Texas became the first state to enact a mandate--by executive order from the governor--that all females entering the sixth grade receive the vaccine, with some exceptions. Legislators in Texas passed H.B. 1098 to override the executive order and the governor withheld his veto. Currently, HPV vaccination is not yet mandatory in any state.

    Here is some information regarding the safety of the vaccine. Similar information is also available regarding Cervarix, the vaccine marketed by Glaxo Smith Kline.

    1. As of June 1, 2009, the CDC reported that over 25 million doses of Gardasil, which is recommended for women between ages 9-26, have been distributed in the U.S. and there was an average of 53.9 VAERS reports per 100,000 vaccine doses. Of these, 40 percent occurred on the day of vaccination, and 6.2 percent were serious, including 32 reports of death.

    2. But clinicians on both sides of the vaccination debate agree that data provided by the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) report is limited because it lacks any baseline comparison for the adverse events reported. This makes it difficult to draw cause and effect relationships when a death, for example, occurs soon after administering the Gardasil vaccine. 90 percent of those with blood clots had typical risk factors for clots, outside of having received the vaccine -- using oral contraceptives, for example, or smoking.

    3. "There are 772 serious problems identified in 23 million doses of vaccine," said Dr. Kevin Ault, associate professor of Gynecology and Obstetrics at Emory University. "I usually tell my patients that these serious events are tragic, rare and likely unrelated to the vaccine."

    4. The overwhelming consensus regarding Gardasil use is that physicians who are not well versed in the risks of HPV and cervical cancer and the side effects of the vaccine cannot adequately counsel patients whether or not to be vaccinated.

    5. Further information:

    The bottom line is this. The incidence of cervical cancer is much higher in India than in the US and the vaccines will be a usefull tool in the prevention. The vaccine should be given before HPV infection to be effective, which means giving it to girls before they are sexually active. Girls that are seropositive for HPV or those that have any pre-existing blood clotting disorders should not take the vaccine. The problem both in India and here is that there is nether any pre-screening of recipients nor any proper education of either the public or the medical community about the choice to be vaccinated or not. Moreover, as the vaccines protect against only 2-4 of the 100+ strains of HPV for 4-7 years, vaccination does not mean total protection and annual screening (e.g. pap smears) are still necessary. So many parents don't see the need for the vaccine. But Public Health authorities have decided that the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh any adverse medical effects. The one community in US where the vaccine is expected to have a big beneficial impact is the African American girls.

    I hope that some of this information has been helpful. I will let Aruna answer any questions you may have!

    Much of the information came from the ABC News website and from the government website whose link is in my message. Please note that the data cited in my message was only from June, 2009 where as data up to September, 2009 seems to be now available. If you are going to translate the content into Telugu, I believe that cervix would translate as గర్భాశయ ద్వారం (uterus being గర్భాశయం or గర్భకోశం). HPV are known to cause cervical cancers rather than uterine cancers.

  10. Thank you Chandra

    I have other information and so do my collegues. I will pass your blog on and link you up.

    I think your information needs to be in the public domain. I reposted my last article on American Chronicle because I am planning to write something soon involving girls in India and linking some research up.
