Vaccine Lobbying Australian-Style: HPV Vaccine Questioned

Editor’s Note: There is something sick about the medico-political structure in Australia, and indeed most other western economies. Judy Wilyman, a PhD student based at the University of Wollongong, is researching government vaccination policies.
And it’s just as well because vaccination policy is all over the place, seemingly driven by vaccine manufacturers with little regard for human safety.

Judy is very courageous because she writes truthfully and from an evidence base.
And because of that she is criticised in a highly personal sense to the extent of vilification through websites that have a strong Skeptic influence.

i2P has become one of her supporters because her work is important and facts need to reach pharmacists to enable them to make good choices and recommendations for their patients, particularly as some are now becoming accredited to administer vaccines in pharmacy professional clinics set up for the purpose.
It is particularly noticeable that government is lagging in its perception of how to regulate what is fast becoming a threat to many patients through vaccines not properly investigated for efficacy and toxicity.
Judy is currently lobbying against HPV vaccine because it has already damaged many women (including Australians) to the extent that overseas governments are pressing criminal charges against manufacturers and banning the vaccine.
Judy’s current lobbying activity tells her own story as follows:

To the Honourable Minister of Health

23 July 2014

Dear Minister Dutton,

I would like to provide you with information regarding the HPV vaccine, Gardasil, which questions the cost-effectiveness and safety of this vaccine in the Australian population.  This information needs to be addressed by the Australian government to ensure that this policy is providing more good than harm in the community.

Firstly, I would like to make you aware that court cases for the people harmed from HPV vaccines have now been started in France, Spain and India. You should also be aware that the Japanese government removed HPV vaccines from the national recommended schedule of vaccines from April 2014 because of its association with serious adverse events and deaths. Here are the links to this information:

  1. France: Gardasil The Carnage continues in France
  2. India: Supreme Court to Rule on Merck Fraud Regarding HPV Vaccine Deaths –
  3. Spain: First case filed against HPV vaccine manufacturers and health authorities – first case will be followed by another four within two months.
  4. Japan: A moratorium on HPV vaccines in government vaccination campaigns  


I would like you to address the following information and reassure the concerned Australian public that this information has been considered in the approval of HPV vaccines in school vaccination programs. Here is the information that needs to be addressed:

Pap Screening is an Effective Preventative Program for Cervical Cancer (International Agency for Research on Cancer):

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognises that Pap screening is an effective prevention program for cervical cancer. Here is a quote from the WHO emphasising the effectiveness of Pap screening programs in detecting and preventing cervical cancer:

“Yet cervical cancer can be readily prevented, even in women at high risk for the disease, through screening and treatment using relatively simple technologies. When precancerous changes in cervical tissue are found and the abnormal tissue successfully treated, a woman will not develop cancer.” (WHO IARC).

Cervical Cancer is a Low risk in Developed Countries like Australia     

Prior to the introduction of the HPV vaccine in 2007 the risk of dying from cervical cancer in Australia was very low – 1.8 deaths per 100,000 women per year (NCIRS Fact Sheet 2009). The age-standardised incidence rate of cervical cancer in 2007 was also low at 6.8 cases per 100,000 women per year. This disease was only a high risk in developing countries in 2007 not developed countries like Australia (Prof. Ian Frazer cited in Williamson 2005).

My paper titled “HPV vaccines have not been demonstrated to be safe or effective in the prevention of cervical cancer was presented in London at the Euroscicon Controlling Cancer Summit (12 May 2014) 

The references for this presentation are presented in my paper published in the journal Infectious Agents and Cancer (June 2013) titled “HPV Vaccination programs have not been shown to be cost-effective in countries with comprehensive Pap screening and surgery”.

In 2005 (before the vaccine was introduced) the NHMRC stated:

Screening for high-risk HPV infection would identify a very large number of women but only a few of them would be at risk of cervical cancer” (NHMRC 2005 p9).

The same applies to HPV vaccination of all Australian adolescents – only a very small percent of girls would be at risk from cervical cancer yet many will now be at risk from the vaccine. Like all drugs a vaccine cannot be introduced without risk to some individuals.

Until the benefits and risks of HPV vaccines are properly established it is unethical to recommend these vaccines in school programs when we already have an effective and safe method of detecting and preventing cervical cancer – Pap screening – and this program will still be needed by all vaccinated women.

The influence of pro-vaccination lobby groups (many funded by industry) in media and the COI of representatives in government are biasing the information that government health ministers and the public receive on vaccination issues.

I request that the Minister addresses this researched information and provides evidence that the information has been considered in the recommendation of HPV vaccines to all adolescents in school programs in Australia. I have listed the references for this information below and look forward to receiving your response.

Kind regards,

Thank you for your email to Senator Milne, who has forwarded it to Senator Di Natale as he is the Greens health spokesperson.

I read with interest your letter and the links you provided.  If there is an outcome or further information from the court cases overseas, I’d be grateful if you’d be able to keep me informed and across the evidence.  Senator Di Natale is also a GP and our approach to issues in health has always been an evidence-based one.  You have provided very important information and it would be very good to keep up to date about the evidence in Spain, India, France and Japan (and any other jurisdictions); and also the response from the Minister for Health.

Dear Simon,

Thank you for your reply.

To date the Minister for Health, Peter Dutton, has not replied to my letter and nor has the Shadow Minister for Health, Catherine King. However, I have received a reply from the Human Rights Commissioner, Tim Wilson, who has stated that he will look into this issue. Hence I have copied him and Commissioner Broderick into this reply. This is an open letter.

Here is an update on the criminal case that has begun in Spain. I have listed below the 9 charges that have been made against Spain’s National and Regional (La Rioja) Health Authorities and against Merck-Sanofi Pasteur Laboratories. I have also provided a link to the more in-depth article on the progress of this criminal case as well as a copy of the fact sheet of information that I had published in 2011 in the British Society of Ecological Medicine and in 2013 in the journal Infectious Agents and Cancer:

Criminal Charges Against Merck for the Gardasil (HPV) Vaccine: 

1. Fraudulent marketing and/or administration of an inadequately tested vaccine;
2. Failure to inform the public about the potential risks of using Gardasil;
clear infringement of the right to informed consent;
3. Ignoring new medical conditions in those who used Gardasil despite the similarity of their symptoms and the relatively short period of time between vaccine administration and the onset of symptoms;
4. Ignoring established and new scientific evidence illustrating the potential harmful effects of Gardasil ingredients and manufacturing methods;
5. Callous disregard for those suffering new medical conditions post-Gardasil;
6. Failure to inform the public that HPV infections are simply one of the risk factors involved in the development of cervical cancer;
7. Failure to inform the public that 90% of all HPV infections clear on their own without medical intervention;
8. Failure to inform the public about alternative methods of controlling cervical cancer; and
9. Criminal liability for the injuries resulting from the administration of Gardasil

Simon Tatz, Policy Adviser

Dear Simon,

As requested here is an update of the global concerns regarding HPV vaccines.

Firstly, I have not had any response from the Australian Minster of Health, Peter Dutton, or the Shadow Minister of Health, Catherine King, regarding the concerns about HPV vaccines that were described in my letter of 25 July 2014 (see below). Yet court action has now started in India, Spain and France regarding the adverse events and marketing of these vaccines. Please see the attachment regarding the court cases that have been started in India against the health authorities and the pharmaceutical companies.

I have also provided a link to an account of an Australian girl who has been permanently damaged by the HPV vaccine – Gardasil.  Stories of permanent disability after HPV vaccination are common and many of the cases are not being acknowledged or investigated by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administrator (TGA). Please see the attachment showing the difference in the adverse events recorded by the US CDC VAERS database and those recorded on the TGA website. The SANE Vax website  is also documenting many serious adverse events that are occurring after HPV vaccination. Here is a link to the concerns in Denmark about the use of HPV vaccines  I have also attached a selection of case studies that have been described by medical practitioners regarding the damage occurring after HPV vaccination.

This letter has been copied to UOW academics and the media and I will publish it on my website. Below is a copy of my latest newsletter sent to my subscribers regarding the lack of media coverage and debate in Australia regarding the global concerns about HPV vaccines:

Newsletter: An HPV Tragedy Hidden by the Australian Media

Australia-by-Kate-2014-Gardasil Survivor

I would like to publicise this Australian case of a serious adverse reaction to the HPV vaccine because the Australian mainstream media is not covering both sides of the vaccination debate. Please read the attached story written by the parents of an Australian teenager in the prime of her life that has been struck down by the Gardasil vaccine. It is important that all parents of adolescents – boys and girls – read this description of the possible adverse events from HPV vaccines because the government and medical profession are not informing the public about the very real possibility of serious adverse events after HPV vaccination.

This sad case is replicated many times in Australia and other countries where court action has now been started against the pharmaceutical company and some health authorities – Spain and India. All parents of Australian children who are scheduled to receive this vaccine in school programs should take note of the symptoms that are described in this case and observe their child’s health for several years to see if their children’s health deteriorates after receiving this vaccine. For more information on the possible side-effects of HPV vaccines please visit 

Please be aware that the reactions are not always immediate – they can occur weeks, months or years after vaccination because of the known delayed effects of the chemicals in vaccines. Please write to the Health Minister and ask why this vaccine was introduced into the Australian population before it was proven to be safe, effective or necessary?

Thanks for keeping me informed.  I mentioned previously that I’m keen to hear about the judgement arising from the action being undertaken in Spain.  Do you have any indication of how this case is progressing?

To all elected representatives,

I write in strong support of the following communications and urgently remind representatives of their constitutionally mandated responsibility and specific obligation to respond to the expressed public health concerns repeatedly brought to your attention yet continually ignored. Given the seriousness of these concerns founded upon insurmountable and ever gathering evidence this is unacceptable!

An exponential upsurge of public outrage is increasingly fueled by expert witness testimony that will advance this matter to the criminal courts with a strong probability of private prosecutions.

Please note this message is not a polite request for a response but an unambiguous, nonnegotiable demand from an ever-growing sector of deeply concerned public to the public servants paid by the public purse to fulfil the clear cut duties currently avoided. This is unforgiveable!

Accordingly please note that unless a meaningful response if forthcoming within 48 hours the matter will be taken up with the parliamentary ombudsman’s office in tandem with a petition to the attorney general to commence criminal investigation.

Yours sincerely,

Tony Lambert

To Simon Tatz, Policy Adviser, Australian Greens

Dear Simon,

In response to your email yesterday there was a meeting held in Spain on 29 August 2014 between the Spanish Health Ministry and the Association of People Affected by HPV Vaccine (AAVP). At this meeting many complaints were made about the way the Spanish government has implemented HPV vaccines in Spain. These complaints also apply to Australia and other countries and can be found on this link 

On 1 September 2014, Dr. Julia Brotherton (Australian HPV Vaccination Program) stated on the ABC (The World Today) that not having regular pap screening could reduce the benefits of the vaccine in combating cervical cancer. This is because “…the vaccine doesn’t protect against all the different types of HPV (13+ high-risk types) that cause cervical cancer.” And “….a regular pap screening test is the single best way of preventing cervical cancer.” So why do Australians need an unproven vaccine that is known not to protect against all cervical cancer and causes adverse events in an unknown number of people?

This information is presented in my published article titled “HPV vaccines have not been demonstrated to be cost-effective in countries with comprehensive pap screening and surgery”. This article was published in the journal Infectious Agents and Cancer inJune 2013

Can the Australian Health Department please explain how this vaccine is cost-effective when it does not protect against all cervical cancer (yet pap screening does) and it has serious side-effects (pap screening doesn’t) and pap screening is still needed by all vaccinated women? This is a very expensive vaccination program in a country where the risk of cervical cancer was considered to be very low prior to using the vaccine in 2007 (1.9 deaths per 100,000 women per year).   

The Criminal Court Case against the pharmaceutical companies and the Spanish Health authorities is still in progress. Here is the full complaint that is being investigated in Spain

Kind regards,

3 responses to “Vaccine Lobbying Australian-Style: HPV Vaccine Questioned”

  1. I am disappointed by the fact that the public was not involved with the latest decision on vaccinations for children. If anything deserves transparency this does. I wonder who will foot the bill for any injury to any child/adult. Indeed, my first thought is that there will be denial of any responsibility. Will the medical industry be financially responsible? Will the insurance industry pay up? How much can taxpayers be expected to pay? Will families be left holding the bag? These are my concerns.
    I have several uni degrees and have gone through pre-med.

    There are identified 200 types of human papillomavirus (HPV); they are divided in low and high risk; the high risk factor HPV are suspicious to originate the uterine cervical carcinoma (UCC); the low risk the mayority, produce benigns lesions; to day exist world collective psicosis about the HPV by the full advertising to the manufacturer to introduce the vaccine against the HPV in the market.
    HPV infection not only is adquired for the coitus; we are contaminated since after born, are widespread in the world; they life in the environment and blood for reduced time; they are ubiquitous; by immunology are determined that have the affinity by our skin and the mucous membrane of the genital, upper respiratory and digestive tracts; anus, of the mouth, gum, lips, in the amniotic fluid, ruber glove, biopsy forceps, specula, underwear, towels, on the floor, the toilet seat, gyms, lockers rooms of swimming in general in the fomites;: are considered as commensals; the domestic and wild animals too are contaminated.
    In average have the viruses 3% to 93% of the men; between 23-26 years of women have the more high frequency and 40% of children have this virus and the 10% of women without sex have the HPV; the pregnants of the first quarter 40%, of the third quarter 60% and in the postpartum 17% have the HPV. Not all person in the world are contaminated;.in average 10% of persons that are leving in development countries and 15% in underdevelpment are polluted with this viruses; they lack to the cellular structure; they have not the proper metabolism; they request a cell to life, is the parasitic of the cell; they are considered the basic structure of life.The frequency and types of the HPV vary according to the region, geography, age, cultural, social, economic and religious factors; the HPV do not distribuited to iqual in the world; in USA: the more frequecy is PVH 16 , Africa HPV 45 , Central and South America PVH 39-59, Canada HPV 31, Spain HPVs 6-16-51- 53: The HPV is increased in the second time of the menstrual cycles and in women who use hormonal anticonception and decrease in the first time of the cycles and do not use hormonal anticonception; the proportion of the HPV too is diferent over the world: Africa Subsahariana 24%, east of Europe 21.4% , Latin America 16.1%, Thailand 8%, New Mexico both sexo 9%, white no hispanic 13.7% , hispanic 9.7% and natives 6.6% , Argentina 16.6% , South Corea 10.4% and so on; a metanalysis in women with normal PAP 11.7%.The HPV life in the cervix of the uterine without produced disturbance: are latent, subclinical in minority case as warts, condylomata flat or inverted ; The HPV are capricious, ubiquitous and enigmatics, appears and disappears from the body of the person, the highest incidence are in women aged 20 to 26 years disappear with the age, may persist throughout life without causing any disturbance, in 80% of women who have HPV in your cervix disappear before the twelve months, by action of the immune system.
    There are not any investigation that scienrtifically proof that the HPV cause the uterine cervical carcinoma (UCC) it is only suspicious. In the development of the UCC are implicate others cofactors being the first and foremost the sexual act; the coitus is the factor scientifically demostrated that produce the UCC; Mix in 130, 000 nuns do not found not any UCC, followed by fasctor suspísous: tobacco, alcohol, HPV, herpes simplex virus 2, age of first intercourse, number of partners, cofactor man, economic factors, more frequent in women of low economic status , multiparity, circumcision, immune system disorders, hormonal contraception, environment and others.
    In 1974 zur Hausen hypothesized that HPV was the agent that cause the UCC and other researchers reported the same idea, but HPV does not fulfill the five Koch’s postulates, which is accepted as dogma in the scientific medical to be considered as the cause of cervical cancer; the HPV in UCC are found by immunological methods in only 90%, that can consider as that the HPV is present or is a immunology residue; the HPV natural or native do not UCC
    The presence of HPV is not sufficient for the development the UCC, require the company of several exogenous and endogenous cofactors.
    Our understanding of the relationship of HPV with the cofactors are still poor and the role of cofactors in the development of cervical malignancy are nebulous. Scientifically can ensures that HPV does not cause cervical carcinoma and HPV vaccine does not prevent less prevents cervical carcinoma, must have further research on the HPV and other cofactors.

  3. Another great piece from Judy Wilyman. And I absolutely agree with the editor’s comment – particularly that “There is something sick about the medico-political structure in Australia, and indeed most other western economies.”

    There is so much historical and scientific evidence now, from very credible sources, that vaccination has done more harm than good. For example, Pediatrician and Instructor in Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, Dr Janet Levatin, stated in her Foreword to Heather Fraser’s excellent book, “The Peanut Allergy Epidemic” that: “We have arrived at – indeed we have passed – the crossover point, that point at which we realize that the preventive measures we were prescribed cause more damage than the problems they were intended to prevent.”
