    My mother called and has absolutely scared me to death.

    Apparently there have been a number of deaths associated with this vaccination. Do you guys know what this is? It's the cervical cancer vaccination targeted at teenaged girls.

    Alysia has had this series of shots in 2008. Her last shot was in June. I've been trying to do some research but really am not processing much clearly at the moment due to panic. Her PCP really pushed getting the shots. It has been heavily marketed and apparently aggressively pushed but apparently it is not fully tested till sometime this year!

    I feel so stupid. I truly didn't do a lot of research. I read the marketing materials and trusted the doctor.

    Thanks for listening. I'm off to do more research and praying that my child doesn't die.

    please don't feel stupid.....There is no "how to" manual for how and what we do for and with our kids. You may find pre existing conditions that she does not have...it could be your mom saw one article with a few linked and panic set in...blew up the article and she called. Take a deep breath....

    Mom saw something on the news about 29 deaths being related to it. Enough information to make me freak out

    thanks hon. I am trying to not freak out. From what I am reading so far, it seems that those who have died did so very close to the injection. I'm hoping we are in a safe zone now.

    You know, I read all this stuff now about people not vaccinating their babies because they think it can cause autism. I never even questioned having Alysia vaccinated as a baby. Now, I don't have any idea whether the two are related. i wonder if I would more vigilant if I was a new mom now?

    ok so far the 3 articles I have found say the girls died within 24 to 48 hours after the first dose. I'm not finding anything on anyone passing away after this long.

    I'm still not finding anything beyound the first few days after the initial injection. But if you are still worried have her checked out. It couldn't hurt :)
