Del­e­gates at­tend vac­cine sem­i­nar

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

MEM­BERS OF the Wex­ford branch of the sup­port or­gan­i­sa­tion, Re­gret, were among those in at­ten­dance at a re­cent sem­i­nar in Dublin for peo­ple con­cerned about the pos­si­ble side ef­fects of the HPV vac­cine.

Com­ment­ing on the event to this news­pa­per, Valerie Roche, said it was a very pro­duc­tive sem­i­nar with the ex­pert speak­ers pro­vid­ing valu­able in­for­ma­tion for the at­ten­dees.

Ms Roche is a mem­ber of Re­gret in Wex­ford and she said the sem­i­nar in Dublin was very in­for­ma­tive and ed­u­ca­tional es­pe­cially in terms of sup­ports for peo­ple who have dis­played side-ef­fects af­ter re­ceiv­ing the vac­cine.

‘It was an amaz­ing week­end and a real eye opener be­cause of the in­for­ma­tion we re­ceived with re­gard to treat­ment op­tions avail­able in Den­mark,’ said Ms Roche.

‘The Dan­ish gov­ern­ment has set up five cen­tres of ex­cel­lence to treat girls, run by Dr Jes­per Mehlson,’ she added.

The Dublin con­fer­ence was or­gan­ised by the In­ter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion for In­jured Chil­dren and Adults (IFICA). Seven del­e­gates from the Wex­ford branch of Re­gret were in at­ten­dance and they joined hun­dreds more from around the coun­try to hear peo­ple like Dr Sin Hang Lee, who has lec­tured at McGill and Yale Univer­si­ties and who is one of the world’s lead­ing pathol­o­gists, talk on the sub­ject.
