WASHINGTON, May 27, 2021 / PRNewswire / – A peer-reviewed journal, Science, Public Health Policy, and The Law, published an article earlier this month on reporting adverse vaccine events for human papilloma virus vaccines (HPV). The article questions the integrity of the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Information System (VAERS).
From 1998-2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did not recognize “persistent or significant disability / incapacity” as a serious adverse event (SAE) in VAERS, although the Code of Federal Standards demands that it be classified as “serious.” In a 2009 study on Gardasil, Merck’s HPV vaccine, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. CDC determined that the SAE rate was 6.2%, which they concluded did not indicate no security issues.
FDA and CDC officials ruled out “a persistent or significant disability” as “serious” despite federal regulations to the contrary. Thousands of reports of disability and disability of adolescents and young adults appear to have been set aside after vaccination against Gardasil. An independent assessment of SAEs based on the correct regulatory definition suggests that VAERS was deactivated by almost 400%. The article explores the implications of these severely inappropriate reports.
Empirical evidence suggests that VAERS ‘misclassification of “serious” events hid significant safety concerns with Gardasil and possibly other vaccines.
“The failure of the VAERS system is profound,” he said Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., President of Child Health Advocacy. “This article notes the waiver of duty by the FDA and the CDC regarding Gardasil vaccines; their implications are huge.” Lead authors Lucija Tomljenovic i Emily Tarsell i agree that new methods of surveillance are very necessary and that it has been a long time.
