In brief: Varies
All vaccines may cause some local discomfort, some more than others.
Gardisil may have a higher number of patients with sore arms. This side effect is certainly better than developing cancer! be wise and immunize!

In brief: No, same as flu shot
Gardasil is a newer vaccine and is as safe as the meningitis, hepatitis, or flu shots.
Gardasil has similar side effects, too. Some people get arm soreness, slight fever or headache, etc... Gardasil is an anti-cancer vaccine (in the U.S., 3000-4000 women die each year from cervical cancer, now a vaccine-preventable disease).
