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.

I received the first of the of the shots 8 years ago & had an anaphylactic reaction. Needless to say I did not continue with the followup doses. I will also not allow either of my daughters to get this drug. The benefits do not outweigh the risks.

http://www.medications.com/gardasil/46906 (Must read) My daughter has just had her second shot and after reading all these reviews I realize that she has had a lot of the same sx that are listed, being so extremely tired all the time since the first shot in the series, headaches and generally just not herself.

Comment:
I see a lot of negative reviews, and my heart goes out to all of you. But I did not experience any adverse affects. The shot was painful and the injection site hurt for about a day or so but I have no had any other issues.
