12 year-old dies after HPV Vaccine

Posted in HPV, Vaccinations with tags , , , , , , on August 12, 2014 by saynsumthn

Meredith Prohaska, of Waukesha, had a sore throat on the morning of July 30. Her mom took her to the doctor. During that visit, she was given the HPV vaccine, which guards against the common sexually transmitted virus that may cause cervical cancer.

About 30 minutes later, on the way home, Meredith became sleepy, her mom said. The girl napped most of the afternoon.

Rebecca Prohaska went out for food and returned to find Meredith on the floor, with purple lips and no pulse.

According to Fox 6:

“She got her first HPV vaccine at around 10:30, 11 o’clock that morning,” Rebecca Prohaska said.

At some point, Rebecca Prohaska says she remembers getting a handout about possible side effects.

“Thirty minutes later she was trying to sleep. I kept waking her up,” Rebecca Prohaska said.

By 3:30 that afternoon, Rebecca Prohaska went out for a half-hour to get food.

“I came back and I found her on the floor,” Rebecca Prohaska said.

Rebecca Prohaska — a 14-year veteran EMT for the National Guard, performed CPR after calling 911.

Meredith Prohaska was pronounced dead at the hospital. No one could say why.

“It was the hardest thing when they called and said they don’t know. There was no reason. She was the healthiest 12-year-old,” Rebecca Prohaska said.

Planned Parenthood’s Gender Confusion

I saw this poster by Planned Parenthood when they tweeted this, “Everyone who has a cervix can get cervical cancer – no matter your gender or who you have sex with. http://ow.ly/i/3mkVz”

PP Cervix Tweet

PP CERVIX Gender Confusion PP

NO MATTER YOUR GENDER? UH…A CERVIX IS PART OF THE FEMALE BODY – PLANNED PARENTHOOD….But then again- they do not know the baby is a separate person, why would they get this right as well.

According to medical dictionaries:

Cervix: The cervix is the lower, narrow part of the uterus (womb). The uterus, a hollow, pear-shaped organ, is located in a woman’s lower abdomen, between the bladder and the rectum. The cervix forms a canal that opens into the vagina, which leads to the outside of the body.

Cervix Def


And from WEB MD:

The cervix is a cylinder-shaped neck of tissue that connects the vagina and uterus. The cervix is made of cartilage covered by smooth, moist tissue, and is about 1 inch across. There are two main portions of the cervix:

I guess the message Planned Parenthood is trying to send is that HPV leads to Cervical Cancer and anyone can get and or spread it…..but..they should have been a little more clear, don’t ya think?

Planned Parenthood Expert on sex: “Expect to get HPV- All of us get it”

Watch this video:

Don’t you just want to give her a BIG INVITE to speak at your kid’s school?

GREAT that Planned Parenthood a HUGE promoter of SEX among teens things – We will all get HPV because a new study says that even with treatment HPV may Reactivate in older women:

‘Hidden’ HPV May Reactivate in Older Women

The cervical cancer-causing virus may not fully clear from the body as once thought, experts say.

THURSDAY, Dec. 13, 2012 (HealthDay News) — Many older women infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV) in their youth may not “clear” it from the body as completely as once thought, a new study suggests.

The research hints that HPV infection in older women is often the reactivation of a strain picked up years ago, rather than a newly acquired sexually transmitted infection.
The study authors also found that HPV may be difficult to detect in the body more than one to two years after the initial infection.

“Women who fail to ‘clear’ [HPV] infections are known to be at high risk for cervical cancer, but what are the true long-term risks for the vast majority of women who appear to clear their initial infection? The current study addresses what does ‘clearance’ really mean,” said Dr. Rhoda Sperling, professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive science at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. She was not connected to the new study.

The findings were published online Dec. 13 in The Journal of Infectious Diseases.

HPV can cause genital warts and is also thought to be a major cause of cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina and anus in women.

This study included about 850 women, aged 35 to 60, in Baltimore who underwent routine cervical cancer screening from 2008 to 2011. HPV infection was more common among women who reported a new sexual partner within six months prior to the study, but the authors pointed out that these women accounted for only 3 percent of the participants.

Nearly 90 percent of HPV infections were detected in women who had more than one lifetime sexual partner, and 77 percent were detected in women who had five or more sexual partners in their lifetime, the study authors noted.

According to the researchers, the findings suggest that women who became sexually active during and after the sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s have a much higher risk of HPV infection than women who became sexually active prior to 1965. That’s because women who became sexually active during the sexual revolution likely had more sexual partners during their lifetime.

“Taken together, our data raise the possibility that reactivation risk may increase around age 50 years and contribute to a larger fraction of HPV detection at older ages, compared with new acquisition,” wrote the team led by Patti Gravitt, of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine in Malaysia.

US recommends routine HPV vaccination for boys

Posted in Gardasil, HPV, Vaccinations with tags , , on February 3, 2012 by saynsumthn

2/3/2012
WASHINGTON — US health authorities on Friday urged all boys age 11-12 to get a routine vaccination against the most common sexually transmitted disease, human papillomavirus, or HPV.

Other changes as part of an annual update to US immunization schedules included a recommended hepatitis B vaccine to the protect the livers of adults up to age 60 who have diabetes and a vaccine against whooping cough for pregnant women.

The updates, agreed upon by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), were published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly report of February 3.

The HPV vaccine has been approved for girls since 2006 but the CDC had not expressly urged it for boys, though boys were included among those who could receive it to prevent certain cancers and genital warts.

Parents sue after Quebec teen dies following Gardasil vaccination

MONTREAL, February 1, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The parents of a 14-year-old girl who died following Gardasil vaccinations provided by the Quebec government are suing the manufacture of the HPV vaccine, pharmaceutical giant Merck Frosst, as well as three doctors and a clinic, for $197,000.

Annabelle Morin died on December 9, 2008 after having received two doses of Gardasil under a program introduced by Quebec in September 2008.

Annabelle’s mother Linda said her daughter received the first shot at a clinic in October 2008, and that the teenager vomited, became confused and incoherent and was unable to speak or walk, according to a QMI Agency report.

Annabelle was taken to hospital where she was diagnosed with a migraine and sent home.

The lawsuit alleges that Annabelle received a second dose of Gardasil at her school on Nov. 24, 2008 and again became ill.

Two weeks later her parents found her dead in the bathtub.

“I was shocked. I didn’t know what to do,” Linda Morin told QMI Agency.

HPV vaccination Mandates for boys?

Boys should get HPV vaccine too, panel says
by Associated Press
October 25, 2011 at 10:29 AM
ATLANTA (AP) — A government panel is recommending that young boys also get the controversial HPV shot. That’s the vaccine now given to girls to prevent cervical cancer.

Doctors argue that it could protect boys against genital warts and some kinds of cancers. But they also say vaccinating 11- and 12-year old boys could also help prevent the spread of the sexually transmitted virus to girls.

The HPV vaccine has been controversial since it was recommended for girls five years ago. And only about a third of adolescent girls have been fully vaccinated against the virus.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices made the recommendation Tuesday. Federal health officials usually adopt what the panel says and asks doctors and patients to follow the recommendations.
