Wull… What the hell is the point in a whore vaccine that doesnt turn little girls into whores??
Boy, I hope some scientists are losing their membership in The Evil League of Evil over this:
Risk of the composite outcome (any pregnancy/sexually transmitted infection testing or diagnosis or contraceptive counseling) was not significantly elevated in HPV vaccine–exposed girls relative to HPV vaccine–unexposed girls
Wull… wull goddammit!
Remember how we learned about ‘adjusted odds ratios’ the other day? This paper uses a similar metric, ‘adjusted incidence rate ratio’. The idea is the same– if the number is ‘1’, and the confidence interval contains ‘1’, then there is no difference between the girls who got the HPV vaccine (at least one dose) and girls who didnt.
- Chlamydia diagnosis: 0.68 (0.06 to 7.71)
- Pregnancy diagnosis (heh): 1.89 (0.33 to 10.79)
- Other venereal disease diagnosis: 0.90 (0.09 to 9.07)
The HPV vaccine didnt even have an affect overall– the number of girls who came in for any kind of ‘testing/diagnosis/counseling’ was the same between the two groups: 1.29 (0.92 to 1.80), which implies that the two groups of girls were relatively equally sexually active.
And insult to injury, there was no difference in age when a girl acme in for her first ‘testing/diagnosis/counseling’ appointment, implying the HPV vaccine does not make girls sexually active at a younger age.
Receipt of HPV vaccine by 11- to 12-year- old girls was not associated with clinical markers of increased sexual activity– related outcomes, such as sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancy.
So, I guess we have to conclude that the HPV vaccine is a failure. All we are left with is ‘nearly 100% vaccine efficacy in preventing cervical precancers, vulvar and vaginal precancers, and genital warts in women caused by the vaccine types as well as 90% vaccine efficacy in preventing genital warts and 75% vaccine efficacy in preventing anal precancers in men‘. And then all that ‘preventing head/neck/throat cancer‘ nonsense.
What a waste, eh?
