Irish parents – please take note that as from 17 May next, your daughters will be at grave risk in their school. Why? The reason is because Minister for Health, Mary Harney, has announced that on 17 May her ‘cervical cancer vaccination programme’ for schoolgirls will begin – just two weeks before the start of the summer holidays.
We have reported on this issue previously see BLOG Posts Jan 182010 Dec.18 2008
First-year students will be particularly vulnerable. The vaccine, known as Gardasil, is actually a vaccine to prevent HPV (human papilloma virus) which is a sexually-transmitted disease, together with other sexually-transmitted diseases. The vaccine has to be given in three doses over a six-month period. This means that the young girls will have to return to their school in July for the second dose, and they will receive the third dose sometime in November. That’s assuming, of course, that they don’t suffer any ill-effects from the vaccine in the meantime. Sixth-class children who are planning to go to secondary school in September will be vaccinated at that time.
The HPV vaccine, it is reported, ‘which is most effective when given before girls become sexually active, guards against the most common, but not all, strains of the HPV virus which causes cervical cancer.’ Ah! So Gardasil is not a ‘cervical cancer
vaccine’. It is a vaccine to ‘protect’ against sexually transmitted diseases.
Now, why would young girls, at the age of about 11, 12, 13 and 14, need to be vaccinated against sexually transmitted diseases?
The British National Health Service (NHS), is reported as having given bribes in the form of shopping vouchers to girls between the ages of 16 and 18 to persuade them to get the Gardasil vaccine, which has been implicated in numerous cases of severe harm and death. It seems that governments around the world have been pushing Gardasil through national campaigns designed to scare women and girls into getting the vaccine.
Comments on the Irish Medical Times website in relation to Gardasil, include: ‘Parents across the world are coming together, sharing stories, documents and research on the adverse reactions to share with their respective governments. Please educate yourself about this vaccine before your daughter becomes “one less” healthy teenager.’
Already, it appears that there may be some squabbling amongst the nurses’ unions as to how the ‘vaccination programme’ can be rolled out, as public health nurses have an existing backlog of work, particularly because of their involvement in the swine ‘flu vaccination programme. Remember the swine ‘flu vaccination?
Interestingly, the Gardasil vaccination will be ‘offered’ to schoolgirls, and their parents will receive ‘information packs and consent forms’ very soon.
So, parents, please be aware that twenty-one schools around the country – Our Lady’s Grove, Goatstown, Dublin; Loreto Convent, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal; Presentation Secondary School, Kildare Town, Co. Kildare; St. Paul’s Community College, Browne’s Road, Waterford City; Dominican College, Griffith Avenue, Drumcondra, Dublin; to name just some of them – are being targeted in the initial pilot project. Don’t wait and see what happens – act now to protect your daughter from being one of the statistics.
