Are there any side effects from the HPV vaccine?
In studies of more than 11,000 women (ages 9-26), no serious side effects from the HPV vaccine were found. Mild side effects include fever and soreness near the injection site.
As with any vaccine, severe allergic reactions are very rare, but possible. If you notice your child having difficulty breathing, hoarseness or wheezing, hives, paleness, weakness, dizziness, or a rapid heartbeat shortly after receiving a shot, call your doctor right away.
