Sanevax is a US organisation that claims to promote only Safe, Affordable, Necessary & Effective vaccines and vaccination practices through education and information. We believe in science-based medicine. Our primary goal is to provide the information necessary for you to make informed decisions regarding your health and well-being. We also provide referrals to helpful resources for those unfortunate enough to have experienced vaccine-related injuries. Recently they seem to have become active in the UK as well; even in my rural neck of the woods, I found a poster that claimed the following:

The side effects experienced by some girls [following HPV vaccination] have been severe and long lasting and include:

  • persistent headaches
  • persistent sore throat
  • ME
  • problems with eyes and vision
  • muscle aches
  • muscle weaknesses/twitches
  • numbness of limbs
  • pins and needles/tingling
  • joint pains
  • chest pains
  • breathing problems
  • racing heart or palpitations
  • sensitive to light or noise
  • cold hands and feet
  • abdominal pain
  • skin problems and rashes
  • memory impairment
  •  concentration problems
  • difficulty multi-tasking
  • difficulty taking in information
  • dizziness
  • fainting
  • postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome
  • seizures
  • persistent nausea and vomiting
  • acid reflux
  • new allergies
  • menstrual problems/ changes to menstrual cycle
  • difficulty regulating body temperature
  • excessive sweating
  • frequent urination
  • insomnia or change of body clock
  • autoimmune diseases, e. g. autoimmune encephalitis. Raynaud’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid.

Scary? Yes, I think so – I am always afraid of people who write about health and think that THYROID is a side effect!

Elsewhere the connection to alternative medicine becomes more obvious and the mission of Sanevax gets a little clearer. However, the claims are similar:

The most common side effects of HPV vaccines are pain, swelling, itching, bruising and redness at the injection site, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, vomiting and fainting.

The following side effects are less common, but more dangerous:

*Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath or wheezing (bronco spasm)
*Hives and/or rash
*Swollen glands (neck, armpit, or groin)
*Joint, leg, or chest pain
*Unusual tiredness, weakness, lethargy, brain fog, or confusion
*Chills
*Generally feeling unwell
*Aching muscles and/or muscle weakness
*Difficulty keeping food down, vomiting or stomach ache
*Seizures
*Shortness of breath
*Chest pain
*Bad stomach pain
*Skin infection
*Bleeding or bruising more easily than normal

This list is by no means comprehensive; it is taken directly from HPV patient Product Information inserts. Many young girls from around the world have experienced many more severe events after HPV vaccination. For the health and safety of the children in your care, please be alert to any changes in your student’s health and behavior post-vaccination.

Should a student experience any of the less common side effect symptoms even months after vaccination, please alert their parents to the possibility that the student may be exhibiting a vaccine reaction, so they can consult their physician for proper medical care.

Now I am not just scared, I am positively alarmed. This makes the HPV vaccine look like something to be avoided at all cost. In this state of alarm, I do a quick search for published evidence. My findings make me concerned again – this time not about the vaccination but about Sanevax. The Sanevax text is in stark contradiction to the published information on this issue. The most recent article I could find stated that serious adverse events such as adverse pregnancy outcomes, autoimmune diseases (including Guillain-Barre Syndrome and multiple sclerosis), anaphylaxis, venous thromboembolism, and stroke, were extensively studied, and no increase in the incidence of these events was found compared with background rates.

This makes me wonder, who is trying to mislead us here? Are we duped into ignorance by scientists bought by BIG PHARMA, or should we perhaps re-name ‘Sanevax’ into INSANE ANTI-VAX?

I think I know the answer, but I would like to hear your views.

  • I guess many of us already know the recently minted term for this, sometimes frivolously referred to in pseudo-latin as: “Argumentum ad package insertum”
    See also here, an elaboration

  • What a ghastly website. They are targeting the UK, as shown by the inclusion of the slot ‘This Week’s Victim’ (!) featuring a young woman from Yorkshire.

    They claim to provide information on safe vaccines, but strangely, one gets the impression from their site that there ARE in fact NO safe vaccines.

    They keep a running total of HPV adverse events on the front page (how accurate that might be is not clear), presumably to ramp up hysteria to ever higher levels.

    Egregious. http://sanevax.org/

  • I can’t count the number of times that I have tried to explain to those who would prefer a “natural” medicine that the side or adverse effects listed by manufacturers under “may include” are symptoms not caused by the medication, but those required to be listed regardless – even when the number of patients in whom they were found was very small compared to placebo. But in this case, we have fear-mongering on a darker level, which may ultimately be for profit. In these days of garnering page-views for money, fear-based marketing can be highly profitable.

    • European Medicines Agency states frequency of side effects very clear, but, of course, rarity does not make them more attractive. And in case of vaccines there is this problem that if we take information about them, many side effects seem more real that disease. For example, SPC of Cervarix vaccine shows that girl has ≥1/100 to <1/10 chance to get gastrointestinal symptoms. Of course, a common sense reaction would be, that allthough cervical cancer is not particularly aggressive (it does not mean it cannot get), cancer is cancer, and vaccine significantly reduces chances, even though there are other strains…

  • I suppose, more information about consequences of respective disease is correct approach. For example, I have met polio victims, and girl on dialysis and oestrogen, because she managed to caught measles and mumps almost simultaneously together with strep throat …. And, of course cancer. But this requires understanding that: a) disease is a problem that can or must be solved; b) disease happen, which seems to be obvious, but it does not work, because infectious disease is perceived as minor nuisance that is self limiting., whether cancer – as doom. And b) is even more difficult, because it is believed by many that infections happen to the dirty and cancer is a punishment.

  • Now, of course I’m not a doctor and the “Information” Sanevax provides can be described as vague at best but: Several of these symptoms do look strikingly similar to what human beings in puberty typically go through what with their bodies adapting to the new hormones they are virtually being flooded with. And if I’m not entirely mistaken, girls are vaccinated in early puberty. So experiencing one, several or all of the following would strike me as very normal: concentration problems, difficulty multi-tasking, difficulty taking in Information, dizziness, fainting, skin problems and rashes, menstrual problems/ changes to menstrual cycle (that one probably being the one thing every pubescent girl goes through), insomnia or change of body clock, cold hands and feet, to a degress also: persistent headaches, muscle aches, joint pains (the tody does have a growth spurt in that period) and possibly also: new allergies. All of that occurs rather regularly with teenagers, no matter whether they’ve been vaccinated or not – at least to my knowledge and personal experience. So this explains at least half the symptoms attributed to the HPV vaccine by an organization that seems to be somewhat less than beyond reproach. ’nuff said.
