On 12-MAR-2009 the patient was vaccinated with the second dose of GARDASIL. Concomitant therapy included MENACTRA on 12-MAR-2009 into opposite arm, LEXAPRO and RECLIPSEN. On 13-MAR-2009, almost exactly 24 hours after administration, she experienced blacking out, legs feeling like "dead weight", her lips turned blue, she had an ashen color to her skin, and she could not see or hear. She visited the physician assistant who admitted her to the hospital. She was given saline and was monitored on telemetry for cardiac function. She also had a CT scan (results not reported). She was discharged after 24 hours. Her blood pressure was 94/54. The patient recovered on an unspecified date.
