GARDASIL may not fully protect everyone, and does not prevent all types of cervical cancer.

Only a doctor or health care professional can decide if GARDASIL is right for your son or your daughter.

GARDASIL can cause pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and fainting. Fainting can happen after getting GARDASIL. Sometimes people who faint can fall and hurt themselves. For this reason, your health care professional may ask you to sit or lie down for 15 minutes after you get GARDASIL. Some people who faint might shake or become stiff. This may require evaluation or treatment by your child's health care professional.
