Some states are trying to change the laws so that teens can opt into vaccines that their parents might think are not the best choice for them. This week on a Mom list in my town, a woman was displeased that her 18 year old daughter took 2 vaccinations at the pediatrician without her knowledge. The young woman, at 18, was able to consent. And Mom was not allowed to participate in the decision. But what about minor teens who are being pushed to get the Gardasil shot? Below is an article spun so hard that your head might fly off after reading even the intro we shared below. A teen, formerly ignorant, started college and a career in cancer research (red flag!) and feels so lucky she escaped HPV for as long as she did, and then got the 3 shot Gardasil protocol.
We protect our children, including our teens from products that might harm them. Cigarettes. Liquor. Firearms. Lottery Tickets. Vaping/E-cig products. So why the push to allow vaccines? Because the media tells the general public, and the general public fully, passionately, with all their heart and soul and heads buried in the sand believes that vaccines are overall safe. Safe for you. Safe for me. Safe for every kid. Safer than any of the diseases they purport to protect against. Side effects, injury and death never enter into the equation.
This article is about a legal push in guess where - New York, which is now overtaking California in pharma obeisance.
Jennifer Canada remembers when her pediatrician in Middletown, Maryland, recommended a vaccine that would protect her against a virus that is known to cause several types of cancer. But Canada’s mother, who had consented to all of the other recommended immunizations for her 13-year-old daughter, declined it, saying she'd heard rumors that the shots had caused the death of several girls.
The doctor didn’t push the issue, and neither did the young teen.
“Until college, I believed, like so many others, that the vaccine was not safe, and that it was far more suited to teens with risky behaviors,” Canada said.
It wasn’t until after beginning a career in cancer research that Canada realized how lucky she's been to avoid exposure to human papillomavirus, the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S. Now 26, she just finished the three-shot HPV vaccine series recommended for adults by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The last paragraph in the article states: " The clinical trials did not include children ages 9 - 12. In fact, one of the lead doctors who helped create Gardasil, recommended against dosing under the age of 15. From a 2009 article on CBS News by no other than Sharyl Attkisson a quote by Dr. Harper: "If we vaccinate 11 year olds and the protection doesn't last... we've put them at harm from side effects, small but real, for no benefit," says Dr. Harper. "The benefit to public health is nothing, there is no reduction in cervical cancers, they are just postponed, unless the protection lasts for at least 15 years, and over 70% of all sexually active females of all ages are vaccinated."
We're a decade out from 2009, not even the 15 years Dr. Harper mentioned has passed. Yet CDC is recommending that 9 year olds, 2 years young than the 11 mentioned in 2009, be vaccinated. And states want to help make that happen.
