Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, represents patients who have suffered serious side effects associated with the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil. Gardasil is approved for use as a HPV vaccine for females between the ages of 9 and 26 years old. Public health officials in over 20 states have taken steps to make Gardasil vaccination mandatory, largely spurred by intense lobbying my Merck, Inc. Since Gardasil became available in the U.S. in 2006, Merck has systematically marketed the drug to the public as a vaccine against the HPV virus, which causes 70 percent of cervical cancer and 90 of percent genital warts. This intense marketing campaign that suggest that Gardasil has virtually no side effects, with pain at the injection site being the most common adverse side effect.
Contrary to this rosy picture, there had already been over 15,000 adverse events reported after taking the Gardasil vaccine. There have also been 49 reported deaths among women who received the Gardasil vaccine as of January 31, 2010.
