|CEBM warns against use of HPV vaccine – January 28|
The Roman Catholic Church has come out in strong opposition to the use of an anti-cervical cancer vaccine on female students attending its schools throughout the Archdiocese.
The Catholic Education Board of Management (CEBM), supported by Archbishop Joseph Harris, strongly recommends that parents of children attending RC schools should desist from allowing their children to be vaccinated with Gardasil, pending further advice from CEBM.
The CEBM has not been consulted regarding the Ministry of Health’s voluntary programme of vaccination against the HPV virus, which began in schools last week.
The Board of Management cited serious dangers from use of the vaccine, including death, which has been associated with Gardasil claimed to be the “cervical cancer vaccine”.
Further, the Church is advising all parents of Catholic Secondary and Primary schools to visit www.facebook.com/TTparentalrights and www.HSlalert.com to view an instructive video and other relevant documents regarding Gardasil.
