Gardasil Vaccine Complications

Gardasil is a cervical cancer vaccine that’s injected beneath the
upper layer of the skin. Cervical cancer is commonly caused by a virus
called the human papillomavirus (HPV). Gardasil protects girls and
women ages 9 to 26 against four different types of HPV, according to
the Gardasil website–two types of HPV responsible for causing 70
percent of the cases of cervical cancer, and two types of HPV that are
responsible for causing 90 percent of the cases of genital warts. Gardasil vaccination may cause complications in some females.

Injection Site Reaction

getting an injection of Gardasil in your arm, you may develop a skin
reaction at the site of injection. Complications from the Gardasil
vaccine injection include swelling, itching, redness, pain or bruising
at the injection site. These reactions typically resolve within a few
days following vaccination.

Flu-Like Symptoms

clinical trials, approximately 93 percent of women who got the Gardasil
vaccination reported experiencing complications that included flu-like
symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC). Following vaccination, you may experience flu-like complications
such as fever, nausea, vomiting, headache or dizziness. Fainting is
common in adolescent females after getting the Gardasil vaccine, which
may lead to further complications such as injury from falling. Patients
should remain seated for at least 15 minutes after vaccination to
prevent such complications.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome

some females may develop Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) after getting
the Gardasil vaccination. GBS is a a condition in which the immune
system attacks part of the nervous system. Symptoms of GBS include
severe muscle weakness and abnormal sensations throughout the body,
which may last for several weeks. Depending upon the severity of GBS,
certain people may develop complete paralysis. Though there is no cure
for GBS, people with this condition may recover within a few weeks–or
it may take several years.

Blood Clots

clots within the legs, heart and lung have been rarely reported by some
people following Gardasil vaccination. If blood clots block the flow of
blood within the body, life-threatening complications can occur.


rare, death has been reported in some females following Gardasil
vaccination. There is significant controversy surrounding the
complications of the Gardasil vaccine.


19,000 adverse reactions and 60 deaths – and these are only the reported reactions and deaths.  Many women are having problems months out from getting the vaccines.  A woman in NZ died 6 months afterwards.
