Write-up: Initial and follow up information has been received from a licensed practical nurse and a healthcare professional, concerning a 19 year old white female student, who at 3:15pm on 15-MAY-2007 was vaccinated IM in the left deltoid with the first dose, 0.5ml, of Gardasil (Lot #657736/0389U). There was no concomitant medication, nor illness at the time of vaccination. The nurse originally reported that the patient "passed out" after the vaccination was administered, but the healthcare worker, who also administered the vaccine, confirmed that the patient immediately (at 3:15pm) following the vaccination, became lightheaded, dizzy and pale, and began sweating. The healthcare worker took the patient to a room and gave her a drink and an ice pack; vitals included blood pressure of 98/68, heart rate of 72, and temperature of 98.1F. The patient laid down for 20 minutes and started feeling better. The healthcare worker advised the patient to call for a ride, but she refused; she recovered on the same day, 15-MAY-2007. The patient sought unspecified medical attention. No further information is expected.
