Side Effects of Cervarix

Just like any vaccine, Cervarix may cause side effects. However, not everyone who receives it will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it well, with only minor side effects, if any.
 
If adverse reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can be treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious problems are less common.
 
The most common side effects seen with Cervarix include:
 
  • Injection site reactions, such as pain, redness, or swelling
  • Fatigue
  • Headache.

You should talk with your healthcare provider before you receive this vaccine if you have:
 
  • Had any sort of a reaction to a vaccine before
  • A moderate or severe illness
  • Any allergies, including to foods, dyes, or preservatives.
