GARDASIL is the world's first vaccine against cervical cancer. Its FDA approval triggered efforts across the nation to mandate shots for school girls, but did doctors jump on the bandwagon too soon?
However, a government watchdog group says the problems with GARDASIL are real and adding up. "Paralysis, convulsions, seizures in young girls; very, very scary and very unfortunate," explained Irene Garcia, of Judicial Watch.
A federal vaccine reporting system has received more than 5,000 reports of adverse events, a small percent of them serious, following GARDASIL vaccination. However, a report does not mean the vaccine caused the problem.
