In brief: Minor pain...

...at the injection site is the only known side effect.
It typicallly is gone in a couple of days. Except in the very rare instance in which someone has had an allergic reaction to a previous dose of the vaccine, almost all young people should be vaccinated.

benefits far outweigh any possible risk. Protect your children.

I'll also express very strong disagreement with another reply to this question. There are no documented serious side effects and nobody has died from the vaccine. It is biologically one of the most effective vaccines ever developed and the risk of serious health outcomes due to HPV are infinitely greater than any side effects.

In brief: See below

Are patients normally experience pain.
We have had several patients pass out after the immunization.

A small proportion of patients pass out from any needle (vaccines or other injections, blood drawing, etc). It's a psychological effect and/or a vasovagal reaction. The proportion who pass out from HPV vaccine is no different than from any other needlestick.
