legalscale 210x131 Gardasil Victims Take Legal Action Against Merck Over Miscarriage, Deadly Reactions

When one Australian woman decided to lead the charge against Gardasil maker Merck after experiencing serious adverse reactions, she soon found another 7 Victorian women with similar intentions and experiences. Naomi Snell, a resident of Melbourne, Australia, suffered an auto-immune and neurological attack after being injected with the HPV shot Gardasil. After reading about a Sydney neurologist who exposed Gardasil as a potential cause of MS-like symptoms, Snell realized that Gardasil could be behind her recent health ailments.

She made a timeline of her declining health using reports from her doctor and physiotherapist. What she found was that the events unfolded right after she had received the Gardasil vaccine. At 28 years of age, Snell lost her ability to walk, suffered from crippling back and neck pain, and experienced convulsions that put her life on hold for 2 years. The health issues started soon after receiving the HPV shot in July 2008.

I never attributed it to my vaccine so I went back for my second and third dose, Ms Snell said. My doctors said I was a case for Dr House. They were baffled.

After launching the class action lawsuit against Merck, 7 Victorian women considered joining the case after experiencing similar reactions to the Gardasil vaccine. One woman linked the Gardasil injection to her miscarriage, which occurred afterwards in her local supermarket.

Gardasil has Led to Thousands of Adverse Reactions and Even Death

Naomi Snell is not the first Gardasil recipient to develop adverse reactions. In fact, many before her have actually died as a result of the Gardasil vaccine.

The Gardasil vaccine has a very questionable timeline, riddled with corruption and devastating side effects. Shockingly, the HPV shot led to 3,589 harmful reactions and 16 deaths between May 2009 and September 2010 alone. 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; there were 789 other “serious” reports according to FDA documents.

Merck of course makes no mention of this in their deceptive advertisements, leading consumers to think that the vaccine is safe.

    My daughter also has seizures after the Gardasil vaccination. I have been unable to find out anything about this class action. I would also like to know who the lawyers are that are handling the lawsuit and what is involved. There is a prevailing attitude of …I’m ok Jack, it didn’t happen to me.

  • Josy Prow

    My daughter also suffered an adverse reaction to gardasil who knows how to take legal action, so that others don’t have to suffer as we we all have?


    Hi, can someone put me in touch with the law firm representing the class action suit against Gardasil please ?

  • Samantha

    how do I get in touch with the law firm representing the class action suit against Gardasil?

  • Luanna

    Please email me about any class action suit too. Thanks.

  • dolores

    hi, my daughter got 1 shot at age 17 and has been sick ever since. We just figured out why she is so sick. We have read so many cases where the young girls have the same side effects she has. They are really evil to make a drug that will destroy so many young lives. This is a disgrace. My daughter is not 20 and can't work can't go to school because her legs and hands ache all the time. Her back hurt she has had a large cyst remove off her neck, two from her hand, one is trying to come on her leg, she get bruises from no where the list is endless. We have gone to countless doctors and emergency rooms not know that this shot was the issue. Email me anyone that know anything about a class action law suit. I will never trust a pharmaceutical company new products AGAIN IN THIS LIFE. THIS IS A DISGRACE TO HUMANS

      Please tell me who I should call for this suit! Thank u.

    I was urged by my gynecologist to get the Gardasil vaccination when i was 25 or 26 years old – I had already been sexually active at this point for about 6 or seven years. I got the vaccine and had never before had an abnormal pap. A few years later I had a pap come back as abnormal, I had a colposcopy and they found that I had severe dysplasia. I had a LEEP procedure and was told that I was cured. Flash forward to a year later.. another abnormal pap followed by another colposcopy and cryotherapy treatment. I was again told that I was in the clear and my dysplasia was gone. Again this year I had another abnormal pap followed by a colposcopy and I was told that I had severe dysplasia and I needed to have another LEEP procedure done. During the follow up, my gynecologist told me that she did some testing and found that I STILL had severe dysplasia but she didn't want to remove anymore of my cervix because I am still of child bearing age. I have always found it strange that I was encouraged to get the gardasil vaccination when I had already had multiple sex partners, at age 26. I find it very hard to believe that gardasil protected me against the HPV virus because I have it and I have been suffering from severe dysplasia for several years. I have done some research and found that, if you are already exposed to the HPV virus then getting gardasil is not only insufficient but it may be detrimental to your health leading you to develop HPV. I'm sure that I'm not the only woman who has gotten the gardasil vaccination and then had to deal with years and years of invasive, painful and expensive procedures. I am afraid that I won't be able to get pregnant and I'm also scared that I will get cervical cancer. Another thing that I find suspicious is the fact that I have had so many procedures done to remove the dysplasia when HPV is something that is supposed to heal on its own. I would love to be a part of a class action lawsuit against Merck or any other entity involved in encouragement of treating women and girls like human petri dishes. Again, I fear that I will not be able to carry a child and also that I will develop cancer and I am just sick at the thought that gardasil has had anything to do with all of this. Even if they haven't, the fact that I paid money to get the vaccination and I still got HPV anyway is deceptive. Thank you in advance and I look forward to speaking with you. Does anyone know of a class action lawsuit in the United States?

  • Ashley Smith

    I am overwhelmed with emotions right now. I received my second Gardasil shot last Tuesday and my symptoms have not gone away. I have extreme migraines, nausea, and seizure like symptoms.

    I want to help these women with their fight!!!!

    • Dawn

      You're not going to get your third, right?

    • Amy

      I am screaming inside as my eyes fill up with tears, My Beautiful 17 year old daughter has been so sick now for 2 months and recently received her third dose back when symptoms were just beginning. We have now spent a week in the hospital with abdominal pain and proof of systemic inflammation but unknown cause. Nausea,dizziness, headaches and extreme fatigue. They thought she had Lupus and then said no, she has been checked for everything that can seem to be tested for, Cat scans, with and with out contrast. It is the middle of the night here but in the morning I will be pursuing this investigation!

  • Jasmine

    I am suffering from the Gardasil side effects with seizures, nerve problems, pain in my arms and legs, memory loss and vision problems.

    Can you please point me in the right direction for help, legal and medical.


  • Jennifer

    I have received the vaccine and since then I have seen three nuerologists and been put on tons of medication. I never had ANY symptoms until the vaccine was administered. I lost my job, my drivers license, was put on disability, and have never been the same. Doctors keep telling me that there is not enough information available to help me. One doctor sent me home and told me to "wait and see if my symptoms go away." I am a single mother of two young boys who have been forced to grow up quickly to assist in cooking. I had an "episode" while cooking and spilled boiling water down my body. I have taken a holistic approach and am getting some relief but still cannot function normally. I was told it will only get worse with time and there is no telling what my future will be like. I cannot walk very far withough extreme pain. There are not many resources and doctors make you feel crazy. If anyone knows of resources or somewhere to go for help, please respond!

  • "MS" after

    I am willing to join these women in their fight! I have been diagnosed with MS! Just after having my first shot of gardasil my symptoms started, I didn't think much of it and had my last two shots! This vaccine has given me a neurological disorder and I will never be 100% protected aging cervical cancer!

    • Tyson Combs

      I was just diagnosed with MS. Symptoms began two weeks after second shot. No doubt in my my mind of a connection. Was perfectly healthy till now

  • Mindanoiha

    My blessings to Annie and to the many others who are suffering after Gardasil.

    It is incredible that the manufacturer Merck, doctors, health authorities and other promoters actually know very little about this vaccine. Read this!

  • annie

    im glad she has had some success finding a doctor to help her with the claim.

    i live in australia i recieved one injection when i was 25 i have just recently turned 29.(i declined the offer at first but the doctor pressured me to go ahead with it, at the time i wasnt in the mood to argue and fight back so i allowed her to proceed)

    before recieving the vaccine i was fit and healthy and used to get up easily at 6am.

    immediatly after receiving the vaccine i fell ill and lost all my energy, and struggled to get up by 9am. i broke out in a fine pimply rash wich resembled sand paper all over my face, i started lactating (this lasted 2.5 years) i also had night sweats.

    the night sweats were so bad i would wake up with a puddle on my bellie and i would need 3 towels every night to keep my dry enough to sleep, this lasted 6 months and i still occasionaly get them, doctors had prescribed me sleeping pills so i would sleep through the heaving sweating.

    i went to my doctors in the following few days after recieving the vaccine so could document my side effects but i was ignored and information was not recorded. but they did try and inject me with the 2nd vaccine

    since then i tried to see if some other specialists would help me investigate what had happened to me and prove this was the gardasil because i was fine up until the day i got the vaccine, but i still have not had any luck

    recently my nuerologist has found that my Pertuity gland is not functioning correctly. but says he cannot say if it was gardasil because there is no evidence (why isnt becoming a diffrent person that becomes riddled with ailments imediatly after a vaccine evidence?)

    seeing as i couldnt make this case public i warned my friends, but none listened, except for 1 that had allready experienced the side effects and hadnt put 2+2 together, she then also declined the last injection. her symptoms had been like mine after her first injection, but got significantly worse after the second.

    i also saw the same thing happen to some other girls, and allthough a number of my friends were ok, some werent and i know this cant be a coincidence, i am still angry at the doctors, and myself for giving in and accepting the vaccine, i am also still wanting to raise awarness but seems it falls on deaf ears.

    though i was not able to help shed the truth on the dangers of this vaccine i am glad someone else has

    I am glad this woman is suing Merck; I teared up, reading what the vaccine did to her. It's shocking that 16 people have died after getting the shots: all women, I assume (and Gardasil is now being marketed to boys). I wonder if there would be more coverage of the dangers, if it was men, vs. women, who have died from it. It's shocking.
