The statistics are cumulative, but that doesn't make them wrong. Sanevax is a trustworthy website (IMO). The vaccine has been responsible for at least 100 deaths thus far.
I was talking to a teenage girl about her celiac disease recently, and she said she started developing symptoms around age 12. I asked her if she had the Gardasil vaccine before her symptoms, and she said yes. It may be a coincidence, but she had no family history of it. Very suspicious and concerning.
The UK is now giving out Gardasil rather than the "safer" Cervarix.
That's a bit of a scare article! It's hardly hidden - it's discussed on the NHS website: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/hpv-vaccination/pages/introduction.aspx?WT.mc_id=090805
Including a page on side effects (both common and rare), and the reason for the switch (to protect against more kinds of cervical cancer they say).
