Write-up: Information has been received from a nurse practitioner concerning a 15 year old female with no pertinent medical history and no history of drug reactions/allergies who on 09-FEB-2007 was vaccinated with first dose of Gardasil (lot # 655617/1447F) 0.5 ml injection. There was no concomitant medication. On 09-FEB-2007, the patient experienced swelling, tenderness, and redness in the injection site after receiving her first Gardasil dose. The patient sought medical attention. The next morning, the clinic administered 50 mg of BENADRYL and "it went back to normal". The nurse practitioner did not mention if it was because of the diphenhydramine. Subsequently, the patient recovered. They plan to give the second shot. Additional information has been requested.
