We’ve heard that there’s a story re-circulating on facebook about “Lead Developer Of HPV Vaccines Comes Clean, Warns Parents & Young Girls It’s All A Giant Deadly Scam”. Ironically, the story itself is a scam. Diane Harper’s comments have been taken out of context and highly inflamed. What she really said can be viewed in an interview with Ben Goldacre. This interview is discussed on Skeptical Raptor’s page.



The Immunisation Advisory Centre (IMAC) was officially launched in 1997. We are part of The University of Auckland.
