Like many other medications introduced to the market, some succeed while some stumble. Gardasil, in particular, continues to see injury claims grow, with an increase in frequency over the past few months.
The Gardasil vaccine was manufactured by Merck & Co. to prevent infections from the human papillomavirus (HPV), receiving approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006. Soon after, reports of adults and younger people suffering serious side effects post-inoculation came to light.
Serious side effects
Allegations continue to carry a common thread and surround the multinational pharmaceutical company’s purported lack of disclosure of the risks of permanent if not debilitating, side effects that include:
- Neurological problems
- Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS)
- Premature ovarian failure and other complications.
To make bad situations worse, victims and their family members allege that the company continues to suppress vital safety data from family members dealing with serious side effects and medical professionals. All of this occurs in the shadow of ongoing hype and promotion of wider use for children.
