Harney must reinstate cervical cancer vaccine group on Facebook. There is also a candle light vigil at the same time outside the Dáil on the same day. Full details on the Facebook event page.

Meanwhile Gavin’s blog has an update on the strength of the facebook group.

It is over issues such as this, the breast cancer misdiagnoses and numorous other muck-ups in our health system that Mary Harney shold resign over, not some haircut paid for by FÁS.

Please come along next Wednesday and bring a camera!

Don’t forget their is an online petition!

Cervical Cancer Vaccination Programme

I have been following Redmum very closely on this issue has she has some excellent links and footage of Harneys statement in the Dail. She has some excellent posts which include links and ideas to try and change the Governments mind on this issue.

*HPV vaccination programme ‘put on hold’

*Email Harney photographs of your daughters

*Some more action on Cervical Cancer

She has also linked to a petition so please sign it!

Also Grandad has an excellent post on this issue and Mary Harney and the HSE in general which is also worth a read.

It is a shame that the Government have withdrawn this service and it should be reinstated.
