Just weeks after a teenager received a vaccine meant to prevent HPV, problems arose. The teenager’s mother says she had nowhere to turn for information or help. Seventeen-year-old Maddy Mormon loves music. But two years ago, she got too tired to play and would lie in bed with intense headaches and body pain. Maddy missed weeks of school. My husband suggested that we create a timeline and plot all of her absences from school. Maddy’s parents noticed the absences piled up after their daughter received her first and second doses of Gardasil, the vaccine used to prevent certain types of HPV.
