Write-up: Information has been received from a nurse concerning a female patient who was vaccinated with a first dose of Gardasil (lot# not reported). Subsequently, the patient experienced pain while receiving the injection. The nurse indicated that it seemed as if the needle was "too big for girls with small arms and it almost feels as if the needle is hitting the bone in the child patients". The nurse said that they have to switch to a 5/8 inch needle when administering the vaccine to patients. Unspecified medical attention was sought. The patient''s outcome was not reported. No product quality complaint was involved. Additional information has been requested.
