HPV vaccine no riskier than placebo, according to largest review yet

Researchers have slammed scaremongering over the vaccine

HPV vaccination confers no more risk of serious side effects than placebo, say Cochrane reviewers who have condemned scaremongering over the jab.

The largest review to date shows the risk of serious side effects was about 7% in both HPV-vaccinated and control groups among the 73,400 women enrolled in 26 studies.
