The government of Japan is concerned about about 2,000 adverse reactions from the HPV vaccine

Japan’s Ministry of Health is exposing the destructive side effects of popular HPV vaccines such as Gardasil and Cervarix, promoted worldwide. To date, some 3.28 million Japanese people have been exclusively inoculated with these HPV vaccines. To date, 1,968 adverse cases have been reported to the Japanese government, detailing serious medical side effects, reports the Tokyo Times.

Gardasil is manufactured by Merck and Cervarix is ​​manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.

The Japanese are reporting side effects ranging from “prolonged pain and numbness to infertility and paralysis.” Because of these complaints, the Japanese government decided to withdraw its support for these widespread and controversial HPV vaccines.

The government of Japan is concerned about about 2,000 adverse reactions from the HPV vaccine.

HPV vaccines have not been paralyzed or suspended in Japan. The government is just not actively promoting their use anymore. These HPV vaccines are still available for free to girls, provided through subsidies, required by law. The only difference now is that Japanese medical institutions must now inform young girls that the Japanese government’s health ministry no longer recommends the HPV vaccine.

What does “HPV” mean?

It is the acronym in English for human papillomavirus. HPVs are viruses capable of infecting the skin or mucous membranes. There are more than 100 different types of HPV, about 40 types of which can infect the ano-genital tract.

HPV infection is very common, but transient, spontaneously regressed most of the time. In the small number of cases in which the infection persists and, especially, is caused by an oncogenic viral type (with the potential to cause cancer), precursor lesions may develop, which, if not identified and treated, can progress to cancer, mainly in the cervix, but also in the vagina, vulva, anus, penis, oropharynx and mouth.
