“That you got a vaccine and that then you developed symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean that the vaccine caused the symptoms. There is no evidence that HPV vaccine causes any of the serious side effects that it has been alleged to cause. It’s a beautiful vaccine, it’s safe, effective. It doesn’t matter what people say, it really doesn’t matter what people’s opinions are. All you have to do is look at the data, and the data, I think, will tell you how one should approach a problem.”
— Paul Offit, MD, pediatrician and chief of the division of infectious diseases at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
I was dozing off this evening while my wife was watching the movie The Greater Good on her laptop. I heard this, and for a moment I thought I was in hell… the first thing that entered my mind was, “What a freakin’ idiot!” I just had to get up and shout this to the world… What a royal freakin’ idiot! There. Now I can go to sleep.
