Write-up: Initial and follow up information has been received from the nursing staff and practice manager of a pediatric practice concerning patients who were vaccinated with a dose of Gardasil and experienced injection site pain routinely when the Gardasil was given. The number of patients experiencing the injection site pain was unreported, and it was unknown if medical attention was sought. The outcome was unknown. The reporter reported that one other pediatric office and another physician reported patient experiencing pain after receiving the Gardasil. In follow up it was indicated by the practice manager that the pain was a generalization that the girls were reporting a tenderness after the shot of Gardasil, but they were coming back for the second and third dose. Additional information has been requested.
