Unlike vaccines for tetanus and measles, the HPV vaccine is controversial. You should study the research yourself before deciding whether to have you or your child given one. This vaccine is controversial not only because The Department of Health and Human Services’ National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has recorded 88 injury and 8 death claims related to the HPV vaccines. Also, there are studies alleging that the vaccines do not reduce the risk of cancer. If you or your child has experienced serious HPV vaccine related symptoms, you should contact an attorney or lawyer experienced in this area of personal injury law.
