Why My Daughter Will NOT get the Gardasil vaccine!

Along with ALL the other shots, now we are suppose to give our 11-year-olds one for HPV?!

At my daughter’s 11-year-old physical, the doctor told me that she would not even begin menstruating for another year or two.

So a few sentences later, the doctor tells me we need to vaccinate her for HPV, hepatitis, and tetanus.

Huh? We aren’t anywhere near menstruating, we aren’t alone with boys, but we need to protect her immediately from a sexually transmitted disease?!

Well lucky for me I’m a newsletter subscriber – so I was informed. When the doctor asked why i didn’t want to vaccinate her – I launched into all that I’d read about the vaccine.

Such as:

  • There are more than 100 types of human papillomaviruses (HPVs). Of them, only 10-30 can cause cervical cancer.
  • These are very common viruses, and an estimated 25 million Americans have HPV infections. However, this is NOT cause for alarm because, as even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states: “In 90% of cases, your body’s immune system clears the HPV infection naturally within two years.”

This is true whether the infection is the type that can cause warts or cancer.

Some Scary Facts About Gardasil

The long-term effects of using this vaccine on young girls is unknown, and in the short-term, many girls have already begun to suffer. Common side effects include:

  • Pain, swelling, itching and redness at the injection site
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Fainting

Severe allergic reactions, including difficulty breathing, have also been reported, as has:

  • Swollen glands
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Aching muscles
  • Unusual tiredness and weakness

This is just some of the information from one of Dr. Mercola’s newsletters. To read the full article and many others click here.

Gardasil, which during the first year of its use has resulted in more than 3,500 adverse events, more than any vaccine in history. Gardasil contains a whopping 675 micrograms of toxic aluminum, and one of the scientists who developed it, Diane M. Harper, warned that the vaccine had never been tested on young girls before it was released for widespread use by them.

This is on top of the fact that she had adverse reactions to vaccines in the past – which I believe was a major cause of her diagnosis at 7-years-old of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. Gratefully, we were able to reverse it naturally with homeopathy, nutrition, etc.

You can read the story about this in the book “101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health,” available at (Dr Mercola also contributed a chapter!)

After hearing that I had made an informed decision, the doctor told me that i would need to sign a waiver. Which i read out loud and laughed. It basically made me sign that “I was putting my child’s life at risk by not getting her vaccinated” How about that – I don’t see doctors signing waivers before they inject children saying, “I guarantee that this will save this child’s life and not cause any adverse reactions.”

So, instead of injecting her with a potentially debilitating concoction, I chose to sit down with her and talk. I showed her pictures of HPV warts on genitalia via the internet, what cervical cancer is and the repercussions of having it, spoke with her about protecting herself, and most importantly on why it is better to wait – hopefully a long time!

I like Dr. Mercola’s tag – to be ONE LESS GETTING the Gardasil Vaccine.

To Your Health!
