You’ve forgotten about the cervical cancer vaccine.(GARDASIL, Cervarix)
Over 7 million people worldwide have been vaccinated.
In Japan, over 3.4 million people have been vaccinated.
Isn’t it strange to see these numbers?
Is Japan’s population that large in terms of the world?
What’s going on now?
Since the 2013 update, there has still been no update on safety.
From the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare’s website
Because persistent pain was seen specifically after cervical cancer vaccination with an undeniable causal relationship to the vaccine, we should not actively recommend routine vaccination until the frequency of adverse reactions and other factors are clarified and appropriate information is provided to the public.
This measure is only a temporary measure and is intended to provide the public with a greater sense of security when receiving vaccinations.
The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) will investigate as many adverse reactions as possible and will have a specialist evaluate the situation as soon as possible. (As of June 2013).
When will the investigation be announced?
