Merck’s recent Gardasil ad campaign seeks to appeal to both young girls and boys using deceptive marketing and omitting the fact that Gardasil has been tied to 49 deaths and countless hospitalizations. In fact, on the official Gardasil website death is not listed as a side effect of Gardasil. Instead, Merck lists only minor side effects that conflict with mainstream reports of the extreme side effects associated with Gardasil. Here is the list of side effects Merck provides consumers:

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

Of course Merck isn’t listing the facts. Between May 2009 and September 2010 alone, Gardasil was linked to 3,589 harmful reactions and 16 deaths. Of the 3,589 adverse reactions, many were debilitating. Permanent disability was the result of 213 cases; 25 resulted in the diagnosis of Guillain-Barre Syndrome; and there were 789 other “serious” reports according to FDA documents.

Even the latest magazine ad campaign launched by Merck lists similar side effects, with the overall message being that both boys and girls should be vaccinated with Gardasil. The ad campaign targets parents of young boys to be vaccinated with Gardasil. Similar to the website, the actual side effects are not listed:

The deceit does not end with the lack of transparency regarding the Gardasil death link. In fact, the ad goes on to say that Gardasil will not protect everyone against diseases caused by HPV. Of course this may sound like Merck is being at least slightly transparent here, but of course they are not. Not only do 70% of all HPV infections resolve themselves within a year, but within 2 years that percentage rises to 90%. Merck chooses to ignore this numerical figure:

As the evidence continues to come out, experts are speaking out against the Gardasil vaccine. Merck continues to push Gardasil on young boys and girls, even providing financial incentives to California legislatures to make it mandatory for all young boys and girls.

“If we had known about it, we would have said it’s not a good idea,” said Jon Abramson, the former chairman of the CDC’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices.
