Concerns About the Safety of Cervical Cancer Vaccine for Girls
A new report from England has found that 1,300 girls who received the cervical cancer vaccine last year have experienced adverse side-effects. The vaccine is given to those who are quite young--12 and 13 years-since it is deemed to be most effective if given before any sexual encounters have taken place.
A total of more than 700,000 girls were vaccinated last year. Many have called for the suspension of the program. But supporters of the vaccine are claiming the adverse effects are within an acceptable range. The definition of acceptable though is worrying--with the reported symptoms
ranging from paralysis, to convulsions and sight problems. Others report severe pain, nausea, muscle weakness, fever, dizziness and numbness.
