Action Alert
NY Take Action: Mandatory HPV bill could move in Albany
Stay vigilant until Wednesday
  Assemblymember Amy Paulin and State Senator Brad Hoylman, two of the vaccine industry's most faithful water carriers in the New York legislature, are attempting to force all fifth graders in the state to get mandatory vaccines for human papilloma virus (HPV), with Paulin's Assembly Bill A2912 and Hoylman's S289a. The main selling point for this vaccine is that it claims to prevent cervical cancer, yet it would be required for boys as well as girls.
     Please click on the Take Action Link above to send emails to your legislators asking them to oppose A2912 in the Assembly and S289a in the Senate
        And please call Speaker of the Assembly Carl Heastie and politely let him know that you do not want to see A2912 passed.
(718) 654-5836, (518) 455-3791
     And please call Senate Majority Andrea Stewart Cousins and politely let the staffer know you do not want to see S289a pass
(518) 455- 2585,    (718) 423-4031
     This bill is a backdoor way to increase the flagging sales of Gardasil and Cervarix, the only HPV vaccines. When Gardasil was first rolled out on the market a very aggressive and well-funded effort was made to make this new and poorly tested vaccine mandatory to attend school in every state. Fortunately, this unprecedented effort failed everywhere except Washington, DC. Rhode Island, however, imposed an HPV mandate  last month by administrative order, and a bill was introduced in Massachusetts, so it appears Merck and Glaxo are again attempting to use government coercion to sell their questionable products. 
    Gardasil has a terrible safety record, According to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System there have been 60,179 reported adverse incidents with HPV vaccines, including 439 deaths, 15,397 emergency room visits, 5989 hospitalizations, and 2,832 permanent disabilities.  And according to Dr. David Kessler, who was the head of the FDA under Presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, these injuries are probably less than 10% of the actual number. The safety record for HPV vaccines is so troubling that Japan ended their recommendation of HPV vaccination for Japanese girls in 2014.
     We also do not have solid evidence that vaccines actually prevent cervical cancer, which takes decades to develop and we have no solid data on how long the vaccine is allegedly effective.
     As a sexually transmitted disease there is no chance that HPV can be transmitted via casual contact at school, or anywhere else. There is no "herd immunity" with HPV. And there are no compelling arguments in favor of HPV vaccines beyond the imprecations of the vaccine industry to "trust us." Forty-nine out of fifty states have made the right decision, they considered it and rejected it for questionable safety and utility.
