Side Effects Of HPV Immunization In Children Aged 10 Years?
Hello, thank you for consulting us.
HPV vaccine is a vaccine given to prevent infection with the HPV virus (Human Papillomavirus). HPV virus if it infects the body it can cause several diseases such as genital warts, malignancy both in the female area (cancer of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis and anus) or in the mouth (the back of the throat, the tongue, tonsils).
HPV vaccine is ideally given to girls or boys between the ages of 9 years and 12 years. So that the body's immunity against the HPV virus can form before the recipient of the vaccine is active during sexual intercourse in the future. The HPV vaccine is more effective if given as a teenager, compared to when it is already an adult.
After receiving the vaccine, it is highly recommended to rest first, 15 minutes after the injection, it aims to avoid the emergence of side effects after injection such as dizziness and headaches. Actually HPV vaccination is classified as safe and rarely causes side effects. However, mild side effects may appear like:
dizziness, nausea, vomiting, headaches, fainting, including fever, can be a sign of side effects from the vaccination, consult a doctor immediately to get the appropriate treatment. Because the fever has been felt for 5 days, then you should immediately bring your child to consult directly with the doctor for a complete examination and additional examinations such as laboratories to rule out the possibility of bacterial or other viral infections, outside the effects of HPV vaccination. Determination of the cause is difficult to enforce if we do not check directly with the patient, therefore we can only advise you to immediately consult the nearest doctor.
To overcome the complaints of a fever that has still remained, then you can advise your child to rest while at home, do not do activities that somewhat straggle his body, encourage him to consume enough fluids, give him nutritious food and continue administering fever-lowering drugs as already You do before you take him to see a doctor.
So that we can convey, hopefully useful. Thanks.
