Write-up: Information has been received from a registered nurse via a company representative concerning a 16 year old female who, "the other night", was vaccinated with a first dose of HPV vaccine (yeast) (lot# not reported). The nurse reported that girl passed out in the office and hit her head after receiving a first dose of vaccine. The girl was unconscious in the office waiting room 3 to 4 minutes. It was reported that the patient was "revived" by using ammonia inhalant, and "seemed to take longer than expected to regain consciousness." The patient was administered an office neurological exam which was "ok and the patient was sent home", reported as recovered. The nurse also reported that it was unclear if this injection was painful. Additional information has been requested.
