The HSE human papillomavirus (HPV) schools immunisation programme commenced in May 2010 and it is estimated that up to 17,000 doses of Gardasil have been administered up to the end of September 2010. The Irish Medicines Board has received a total of 34 reports of adverse events associated with use of Gardasil up to the end of September 2010, 25 of which were received since the beginning of the schools immunisation programme in May 2010.
The reports have been consistent with the expected pattern of adverse effects for the vaccine, as outlined in the product information, and include cases of injection site reactions, malaise, headache, myalgia, fatigue, gastrointestinal symptoms and skin reactions (including urticaria).
