No: Neither of the cervical cancer vaccines (there are two brands in the U.S.) nor any of the other vaccines approved for use in children cause epilepsy.

NO: For some patients a physical stress can bring out a tendency for epilepsy. If you have a reaction to a vaccine with fever and systemic signs, your body may react with a convulsion. This did not cause epilepsy. You may need a thorough neurological evaluation. Other irritative states may result in further convulsions.
