Federal and academic researchers say Gardasil (by Merck and Co's), the vaccine which protects against the human papillomavirus, or HPV, that causes
genital warts and cervical, head and neck, and penile cancer, does not appear to be causing any unusual side-effects.
The vaccine was approved in 2006. From June 2006 through December 2008 23 million doses of the vaccine have been given in the United States.
Reports to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System(VAERS), run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA, shows 12,424 cases of adverse events like fainting or feelings of nausea or dizziness, which constitutes about 1% of patients. There were low rates of more serious problems such as severe allergic reaction, dangerous blood clots or nerve injury that can cause paralysis. And 6% included patients who were hospitalized, permanently disabled or died.
Reading Reports of Health Concerns Following HPV Vaccination on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site one can find such information:
"As of June 1, 2009, there have been 43 U.S. reports of death among females who have received the vaccine. Twenty six of these reports have been confirmed, 9 are still under investigation, and 8 remain unconfirmed due to no identifiable patient information in the report such as a name and contact information to confirm the report. Confirmed reports are those that scientists have followed up on and have verified the claim. In the 26 reports confirmed, there was no unusual pattern or clustering to the deaths that would suggest that they were caused by the vaccine."
Though, such reports do not show the vaccine caused sickness or death, only that a patient became ill or died after receiving the vaccine.
