In the United States, the idea of mandatory vaccination, vaccine damage, and informed consent is reaching a boiling point amongst the country’s population. Yet the mainstream media coverage regarding vaccines is either one-sided in favor the shots or completely silent. The combination of an ongoing mainstream media astroturf campaign coupled with 70 percent of mainstream media advertising revenues coming from pharmaceutical companies has rendered U.S. mainstream media incompetent in their reporting about the dangers of vaccines.
Fighting Irish Parents
Meanwhile, in Ireland, the support and activist group Reactions and Effects of Gardasil Resulting in Extreme Trauma, or R.E.G.R.E.T. has brought worldwide attention to the country’s mounting HPV vaccine injury, political apathy and mainstream medical incompetence surrounding the issue.
Set up by dedicated parents of teenage girls who developed serious adverse reactions after taking the HPV vaccine Gardasil, R.E.G.R.E.T. is making the Irish media do their job and the medical community take notice. The increasing media attention is serving to give a black eye to the Irish medical community’s lack of proper informed consent — an unfortunate trend being seen both in the Europe Union and the United States that is damaging the integrity and trust of their respective medical systems.
The Irish HPV vaccination campaign started in 2010 as teenage girls began receiving Merck’s Gardasil through a collaboration with the school systems. In Ireland, the teenage girls (and perhaps soon boys) are given the shot on school grounds.
The Irish Health Service Executive (HSE) in collaboration with the National Immunisation Steering Group specifically instructs educational facilitates and school staff administering the HPV vaccines to “not include a patient information leaflet.” Instead, parents considering signing the HPV consent forms for their daughters are allegedly given a marketing leaflet that says nothing about the serious, long-term side effects.
This fact alone would violate informed consent laws and regulations of virtually every medical governing body and medical association worldwide. In addition, Irish schools have allegedly made little to no exceptions for special needs children giving them the HPV vaccine as well.
Anna Cannon is a member of R.E.G.R.E.T. whose daughter began experiencing severe adverse reactions after the HPV vaccination. Cannon recently testified for the Irish Parliament in a hearing to suspend the HPV vaccine program. Her testimony recounted her experience with the Irish medical system as well as her daughter’s debilitating health deterioration by saying on record:
