The HPV Vaccine: What Are The Risks Of Gardasil?

The human papillomavirus (HPV) can, in rare circumstances, cause several different types of cancer, including cervical cancer. Gardasil is a vaccine for certain strains of the human papillomavirus. It was first included in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program on February 1, 2007.

The HPV vaccine is recommended for both boys and girls, and it is administered in two doses. Gardasil problems, or side effects from the Gardasil vaccine, are fairly common. Problems include:

  • Syncope (fainting)
  • Local injection site reactions
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Headache

More serious Gardasil problems can include:

  • Hypersensitivity reactions
  • Urticaria
  • Venous thromboembolic events
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS)
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Anaphylactic shock
  • Transverse myelitis
  • Pancreatic and motor neuron diseases

In some cases, deaths have been reported and linked to the Gardasil vaccine.

Gardasil Side Effect Numbers

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) was established in 1990 as a way to collect data and track potential problems with vaccines. The number of reports in VAERS is likely underreported, but to date, thousands of problems and side effects have been reported through the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System following Gardasil vaccinations.

Deaths Linked To Gardasil

Gardasil was first included in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program on February 1, 2007. Since that time, a number of deaths have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System. In order to bring a compensation claim for a Gardasil death, the claim must be brought within two years of the death and four years after the start of the first symptom that resulted in the death. Gardasil deaths are usually very difficult to identify as a clear cause of death. There are typically systemic problems, and rarely will Gardasil be identified as the primary cause of death. If you have a loved one who has died within a short time frame (typically weeks to months) following administration of the Gardasil vaccine, it could possibly be a Gardasil death.
