Took my 11 yr old son to the dr this morning and discovered he needs a few shots to get up to date. They want to give him Gardisil. I've found plenty of info online touting the benefits of it, but I'm concerned about risks. I know it's been around a few years, but it is still relatively new. It's not that I don't want my son protected, or to add protection for girls he may one day sleep with. But I don't want to risk major health effects, either.
Does anyone know if there are any risks (other than the usual fever, injection pain, etc.) that I need to consider before giving them the go ahead?
