Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, reported that it has obtained new Food & Drug Administration records about Merck's vaccination for human papillomavirus (HPV) Gardasil. The records show that there have been 10 new deaths since September 2007 and 140 serious adverse events since January 2008. These new data come on top of thousands of adverse event reports that Judicial Watch had obtained previously from the agency. In light of these negative incidents, Judicial Watch urges FDA to refrain from mandating this vaccine for children and reevaluate its safety for minors.
