Why anti rabies vaccine like rabipur have caused neurological adverse effects like(ADEM,GB syndrome), is it not safe to take (PCECV) vaccine rabipur?

Why anti rabies vaccine like rabipur have caused neurological adverse effects like(ADEM,GB syndrome), is it not safe to take (PCECV) vaccine rabipur?

Seems coincidental: Rabipur is a Purified Chick Embryo Cell Vaccine (PCECV), not known to CAUSE neurological side effects. A rare patient can get neurological problems after getting a vaccine... but that's coincidental unless the rate of neurological problems occurs more often in vaccine recipients than in non-recipients. For example, if a child dies in a car wreck after getting a vaccine, we don't blame the vaccine. ...Read more

My bf has HPV and I have had the gardasil vaccine. Is there any concerns I should have or anything I should know since we are currently ttc?

None known: If you have had the full series of 3 hpv vaccines, you have a reasonable degree of protection (it is possible that you could have been exposed to hpv prior to your vaccines if you got them after you became sexually active). It is very difficult to determine if a male has active hpv infection. At this point, i don't think there are any other precautions you need to take. ...Read more

Study says that if u had the Gardasil vaccine, but were already exposed to HPV types 16+18,there is an increased risk of precancerous lesions? True???

That is expected: Vaccine is meant to prevent acquisition of HPV infections. So if you already have exposure to HPV before receiving the vaccine, then it is too late to have any benefit from the vaccine. But it is not any fault of the vaccine in that case! ...Read more

The good news is, you don't need to start over, even if the time for your 3rd shot has passed. Call your physician and make an appt for your final vaccine. Best of luck to you! ...Read more

I recently had a colposcopy due to a pap that showed hpv, with a cancer free result. I am in my 50's and wonder if getting an off-label gardasil vaccine is a good idea or a waste of money?

I recently had a colposcopy due to a pap that showed hpv, with a cancer free result. I am in my 50's and wonder if getting an off-label gardasil vaccine is a good idea or a waste of money?

Good thinking yet no: data from human trials. Vaccines work by alerting immune system responses to foreign chemical structures on surface of virus/bacteria, ones not encountered previously. Little data exists on repeated challenging with related structures when person has already had clinically apparent versions of the disease. Larger issues=complexity of immune system (brain control 24/7) responses poorly understood. ...Read more

I am about to get my first shot of the gardasil vaccine today. Are there any unusual side effects?

Rare side effect: There is a rare and unusual side effect that affects a few women - getting lightheaded and dizzy and occassional one that actually faints after the vaccine. Some docs actually want you to wait around in the office for 15 or 20 minutes after the shot to see if that happens. I just advise my patients not to drive or use machinery for an hour after the vaccine. But this is a very rare occurence. ...Read more
