Write-up: Patient was given 1st dose of Gardasil, along with Menactra, in the left deltoid. Gardasil was given first, and then Menactra. Patient was seated at time of administration of vaccines. Within 5 seconds of the vaccines being given, the patient felt faint and closed her eyes. She lay down and said she felt dizzy. She was lethargic but responsive. I came into the room within 1 minute of this episode. The patient was laying down but felt better. She denied any visual changes had occurred -- just that she felt faint and dizzy. Blood pressure was 102/70. She was given some juice. She felt much better after about 5 minutes and was sent home. Her mother will watch her and call me if any further problems. No further Gardisil vaccines will be given to her.
