Gardasil Deemed Safe, Effective

A review of health problems reported after women and girls received Merck & Co's Gardasil vaccine shows it remains safe and effective for protecting against a virus that causes cervical cancer, U.S. officials said Tuesday.

A statement from the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said a review found 94 percent of problems reported after Gardasil vaccination were
non-serious events.
