Write-up: Initial and follow-up information has been received from a licensed practical head nurse, concerning a mentally challenged female who in March 2007, was vaccinated with Gardasil. Almost immediately after the vaccination, the patient experienced pain, tingling, and slight paralysis going down the arm. The licensed practical head nurse thought the complaint of "paralysis" was a result of having to hold the patient down. Subsequently, the patient recovered from the pain, tingling and slight paralysis going down the arm before she left the office. Upon internal review, slight paralysis going down the arm was considered to be an important medical event. This is one of two reports from the same source. No further information is available.
