All doctors and health practitioners say the same thing.....that the Gardasil vaccine is safe, lots of doses given with no bad reactions, consequences of getting cancer can be prevented, etc. etc. I hear all this and still worry that my child could be the one freak case that has a life altering severe reaction. The doctor that talked to me yesterday said that the few severe cases that have been reported were in people that had other underlying medical problems. This still does not make me feel any better. And furthermore.....I never had this vaccine, my mother never had it, my grandmother never had it....and guess what? We're all fine! Could it be that cervical cancer is easy to catch and treat so this vaccine is not really even necessary? After all, you're required to have pap screenings for this anyway. I'm very very conflicted on this vaccine. The medical community just wants to tell me that it's good for my child so get it and shut up. But I don't want my daughter to be that one case that ends up in a wheelchair and the medical community shrugs it's shoulders and says, "Gee, sorry....this is very rare. Good luck with your life"
