Write-up: Information has been received from a registered nurse concerning "several" patients who were vaccinated with a first dose of HPV rL1 6 11 16 18 VLP vaccine (yeast). The patients subsequently complained of a little arm soreness after the vaccination. All patients recovered from arm soreness. On unknown dates, patients were vaccinated with second dose of HPV rL1 6 11 16 18 VLP vaccine (yeast). Subsequently, the patients experienced pain, swelling and irritation at injection site. The nurse noted that she used 3 or 4 different lots, and the patients were complaining that "it hurt quite a bit when the medicine was being injected into the arm". The nurse further commented that the patients did not complain about this with the first dose. The patients went home after the office visit. Attempts are being made to obtain additional identifying information to distinguish the individual patients mentioned in this report. Additional information will be provided if available. Additional information has been requested.
