DO NOT TAKE THIS VACCINE. I regret my choice to take this. It is recommended for teens and adults (up to 25) who are not sexually active to prevent cervical cancer from my understanding.

Where do I even begin? Exactly four years ago I allowed the nurse at my doctors office to give me this shot. Big mistake!

Comment:
The Gynecologist recommended this vaccine for my 17 year old. DO NOT VACCINATE YOUR DAUGHTERS WITH THIS VACCINE. My daughter's side effects were fever, headache, panting, couldn't move, joint pain. DO NOT listen to the doctor. RUN AWAY FROM Gardasil, it is dangerous.
