    I got the shots, and I'm fine.. Honestly, everything has possible side effects. I wouldn't worry. I know plenty of girls who have gotten the shots with no side effects whatsoever.

      What age were they when they received the vaccine?
      What health issues did they have at the time?
      What is their health history?
      What are health issues that run in their family?
      When and what symptoms did each have?
      What batch was their supply of gardasil from and how have others receiving the same batch reacted?
      What is listed as their cause of death
      I agree with everything Jac said. I'm a pharmacist and every drug/vaccine has side effects. It has to be reported even if there isn't conclusive proof that a certain med caused it. And nearly every vaccination has injection site reactions (pain, swelling, redness).

      I admit that this is a new vaccine so there will be many adverse reactions reported post-marketing. But it takes 10-15 years before a drug/vaccine can get FDA approved. So, plenty of study has gone into it.
