Write-up: Student fainted and lost consciousness for about 15 seconds at 11:00AM. Vital signs were stable before and after the episode of syncope. Student stated that she had not eaten anything that morning. She told the nurse before receiving the vaccine that she had not had any reaction with the first dose of HPV vaccine. After the syncope, she told the nurse that she had fainted with the first dose of HPV but she thought it was because she also had a large amount of blood drawn for tests at that same visit.

She was informed about reaction symptoms and was instructed to return to the health center if she devloped any of these symptoms. She was instructed to contact her doctor at home next week after graduation.
