The article reports that United States had warned the public of the dangerous adverse events of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine which was used to immunize schoolgirls in four provinces of Canada. According to program manager Dee Grothe, they wanted to get the information out in public so that people would know more. He also added that the main concern of the organization is for the vaccine not be mandated by state governments. Sheila Murphy, a spokesperson for Merck Frosst in Canada, says the company's worldwide database on adverse events, which is shared with regulators, does not indicate the need to change the product monograph or to make an announcement and there are always adverse events with anything.
