Write-up: Information has been received from a registered nurse concerning a 24 year old female with gastrooesophageal reflux disease and a history of anaphylactic reaction while on therapy with VICODIN who on 04-MAR-2007 was vaccinated subcutaneously with a 0.5 mL dose of Gardasil (lot 657622/0388U). Concomitant therapy included NUVARING, PRILOSEC, cholestyramine resin, vitamins (unspecified) and probiotics "PB8". The patient left the office after receiving the dose of Gardasil.
