Write-up: Information has been received from a physician concerning his 15 year old niece, with no known drug allergies and no history of seizures, who on 01-JUN-2007 was vaccinated with Gardasil (lot # 656051/0244U). There was no concomitant medication. On 01-JUN-2007, within 2 to 3 seconds of receiving the first dose of Gardasil, the patient had a vasovagal reaction and sought unspecified medical attention. No laboratory/diagnostic tests were performed. The fainting lasted for 1 to 2 minutes and then she had a tonic clonic seizure that lasted 4 to 5 seconds. The patient was lethargic for about 1/2 hour. The patient was given oxygen and pulse ox. On 01-JUN-2007, the patient recovered from vasovagal reaction and tonic clonic seizure. The physician considered one or more of the events to be disabling and/or an other important medical event. Additional information has been requested.
