Possible side effects from HPV vaccination in Denmark
HPV vaccination offers protection against ~70% of cervical cancers, however, serious concerns have been raised about the possible side effects from HPV vaccination. Studies have found no increased risk of neurologic disease, autoimmune disorders, thromboembolic disease, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, or complex regional pain syndrome in HPV-vaccinated persons compared to unvaccinated persons. Affected individuals should undergo a proper clinical examination to ensure a correct diagnosis and treatment because symptoms might arise due to a somatic, psychiatric or functional disorder.
