According to a lawsuit filed last month by Baum Hedlund, Merck’s propaganda campaign played a role in convincing Hayden Shain, then 15, and his mother that he should get the Gardasil HPV vaccine. Once a promising swimmer and straight A student, Hayden is now mostly bedbound. Attorneys for Baum Hedlund, along with co-counsel, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman of Children’s Health Defense, last month filed a lawsuit against New Jersey-based Merck & Co., accusing Merck of actively concealing the fact that the drugmaker’s Gardasil HPV vaccine can cause multiple autoimmune diseases. The complaint also alleges Merck knowingly concealed autoimmune diseases reported by Gardasil clinical trial participants by listing them as “new medical conditions.” The lawsuit was filed in Superior Court of the State of California, Los Angeles County, on behalf of Hayden Shain. It is the eleventh suit filed by Baum Hedlund and Kennedy on behalf of individuals who allege they were injured by the Gardasil vaccine. According to the lawsuit, Merck’s propaganda campaign played a role in spreading the belief that “good mothers vaccinate” their children with Gardasil, and that teens should “get the vaccine immediately” or “risk cervical or anal cancer.”
