Headed by a Dr Ramadhan Marjan, the association called on the Muslim faithful to disregard the concerns raised against the vaccine. Both Muslim Clerics and the Catholic Church have raised red flags against the use of the vaccine saying the vaccine has serious side effects, a claim refuted by the medical association.
Center for Disease Control of the United States recommends Gardasil Vaccine made by Merck Pharmaceuticals (one version of the vaccince), for all females between 9 and 26 years to protect against HPV. However the vaccine may not be safe as backers claim. Judicial Watch (JW), an American educational foundation that promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law has received documents from the Department of Health and Human Services revealing that its National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has awarded $5,877,710 to 49 victims in claims made against the highly controversial HPV vaccine. JW says more than 200 claims have been filed with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
”This new information from the government shows that the serious safety concerns about the use of Gardasil have been well-founded. Public health officials should stop pushing Gardasil on children” said JW President Tom Fitton.
The concerns raised by the Muslim clerics and the catholic Church must be looked into before the administration of the Vaccine to avoid deaths and debilities. Serious side effects reports detail 26 new deaths reported between September 2010 and September 2011 as well as incidents of seizure, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short term memory loss and Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). GBS is a rapid-onset muscle weakness caused by the immune system damaging the peripheral nervous system. The initial symptoms are typically changes in sensation or pain along with muscle weakness, beginning in the feet and hands. This reports come from USA’s Food and Drug Administration, a federal agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services that monitors safety of vaccines.
Experts from across the world question the rational of even vaccinating against the virus when there is only a correlation and not a causality between the virus and cervical cancer. According to Dr Christian Fiala, a specialist Obstetrics and Gynaecologist who is the co-author of a science article (Individual Karyotypes at the origins of cervical carcinomas) that questions the need for the HPV Vaccine, there is no evidence to suggest that the Papilloma virus causes the cancer. A Karyotype is simply a picture of a person’s chromosome. Dr Fiala says while their is no evidence that the virus causes cervical cancer, there are many serious side effects of the vaccine such as deaths and paralysis of young girls subsequent to vaccine administration.
Prof Peter Duesberg, a professor of Molecular Biology, Berkley, California refutes claims of causal relationship between the virus and cancer. Professor Duesberg calls for the administration of the vaccine to be stopped until it can be proven that it prevents cancer.
HPV Vaccine contains aluminium Adjuvant, an Adjuvant is an ingredient in the vaccine that helps create strong immune response in the body. According to Professor of Bioinorganic Chemistry, Christopher Exley of the University of Keele, UK, ”alumunium is neurotoxic and if it accumulates in the body to toxic threshold levels you will get toxicity”.Prof Exley has concerns about the aluminium content of both HPV vaccines (Gardasil and Cervarix). HPV vaccine has the highest rates of adverse reactions of any existing vaccines.
Eminent neuroligist in Japan Dr Hirokuni Beppu, who has extensive experience in drug injury says the HPV vaccine is ”useless” and is concerned that given its high risk its administration was fastracked just after the Stage 1 trial. He says over 120 people are suing pharmaceutical companies in Japan and there is an increasing number of cases. The Japan government stopped recommending the vaccines to school girls in 2013 after it became a major social issue in the country.
It is not clear what the Kenya Muslim Professional Medical Association based their medical opinion on but evidence is stacked against the use of the vaccine.
