The HPV Vaccine

Lawsuits:

Because of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, we cannot sue vaccine manufacturers for our injuries. However, there have recently been lawsuits filed against Merck for fraud. You can read more about this below.

Among other things, the Gardasil vaccine lawsuits allege:

  • Merck failed to disclose important information regarding Gardasil’s safety and effectiveness.

  • Merck failed to perform essential “scientific and medical investigations and studies relating to the safety, effectiveness and need for the Gardasil vaccine” as required by FDA regulations.

  • Merck misled consumers by preying on their fear of cancer and by “repeatedly stating, representing, urging and implying” that it was necessary for girls and young women to take the Gardasil vaccine to prevent cervical cancer.
