"...given that viral clearance rates did not differ from the placaebo and that persistent viral infection is the best established predictor of risk of progression,"it is unlikely that vaccination with Gardasil™ could have any significant beneficial impact."
"Results from our community-based study provide strong evidence that there is little, if any, therapeutic benefit from the vaccine in the population we studied. Furthermore, we see no reason to believe that there is therapeutic benefit of the vaccine elsewhere because the biological effect of vaccination among already infected women is not expected to vary by population."
“In a document submitted to the FDA by Merck & Co ., Inc ., it is recorded that injection of the HPV vaccine, Gardasil™, into women who are already infected increases the risk of developing pre-cancerous lesions by 44 .6%. . This petitioner urges the FDA to play a leadership role in influencing manufacturers to get an accurate test kit onto public markets, to assist the sexually active women who are still considering immunization against HPV infections without inadvertently receiving a vaccine that is not only ineffective, but may augment the risk of developing a precancerous lesion in the cervix .”

Mankind survived for hundreds of thousands of years without vaccines, and now were all going to die without them?
- The Plague of Justinian, from 541 to 750AD, killed between 50% and 60% of Europe's population.
- The Black Death of 1347 to 1352 killed 25 million in Europe over 5 years (estimated to be between 25 and 50% of the populations of Europe, Asia, and Africa - the world population at the time was 500 million).
- The introduction of smallpox, measles, and typhus to the areas of Central and South America by European explorers during the 15th and 16th centuries caused pandemics among the native inhabitants. Between 1518 and 1568 disease pandemics are said to have caused the population of Mexico to fall from 20 million to 3 million.
- The first European influenza epidemic occurred between 1556 and 1560, with an estimated mortality rate of 20%
- Smallpox killed an estimated 60 million Europeans during the 18th century (approximately 400,000 per year). Up to 30% of those infected, including 80% of the children under 5 years of age, died from the disease, and one-third of the survivors went blind.
- In the 19th century, tuberculosis killed an estimated one-quarter of the adult population of Europe; by 1918 one in six deaths in France were still caused by TB.
- The Influenza Pandemic of 1918 (or the Spanish Flu) killed 25-50 million people (about 2% of world population of 1.7 billion). Today Influenza kills about 250,000 to 500,000 worldwide each year.
The trend of recent research is pointing to a figure more like 45% to 50% of the European population dying during a four-year period. There is a fair amount of geographic variation. In Mediterranean Europe and Italy, the South of France and Spain, where plague ran for about four years consecutively, it was probably closer to 80% to 75% of the population. In Germany and England ... it was probably closer to 20%. - Philip Daileader, The Late Middle Ages
Who is fearmongering here?
Why would you and your children be endangered if others don't take vaccines?
You think vaccines should be mandatory, for all people?
Anyways, the "mind firmly closed" in your avatar, illustrates nicely your inability to see a bigger picture.
Using statistics from the dark ages when people were wallowing in their own filth is not really comparable to the risks of our current living conditions.

Europeans of this time utilized a primitive "vaccine" to combat the smallpox, that was frequently mandatory (for example, England required in 1752 that all children be inoculated prior to entry into school). Inoculation consisted of administering mercury to a fasting subject for weeks at a time.

In the early 1950s--150 years after the introduction of vaccination--an estimated 50 million cases of smallpox occurred in the world each year, a figure which fell to around 10–15 million by 1967 because of vaccination.
In 1967, when WHO launched an intensified plan to eradicate smallpox, the "ancient scourge" threatened 60% of the world's population, killed every fourth victim, scarred or blinded most survivors, and eluded any form of treatment.
Through the success of the global eradication campaign, smallpox was finally pushed back to the horn of Africa and then to a single last natural case, which occurred in Somalia in 1977. A fatal laboratory-acquired case occurred in the United Kingdom in 1978. The global eradication of smallpox was certified, based on intense verification activities in countries, by a commission of eminent scientists in December 1979 and subsequently endorsed by the World Health Assembly in 1980.
