Both of these conditions have seen to be occurring in patients who were not immunized and “it is considered important to further review if the number of cases reported with HPV vaccine is greater than would be expected”, claims the EMA.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is an ordinary, mostly sexually transmitted infection.
“More than eight million doses of HPV vaccine have been given in the UK, with close to 90% of eligible teenagers vaccinated. With this very high level of vaccine uptake, such reports are to be expected. But the vaccine isn’t necessarily the cause and coincidental illness is a factor.” Said Dr Sarah Branch, who is the Deputy Director Of Vigilance and Risk Management of Medicines at the UK’s drug regulatory body.
