Here is the NNii page on HPV vaccines
I will quote only the passage on side effects.
Known Side Effects
The HPV vaccines have been tested in large numbers of vaccinees in many countries around the world, including the United States. These studies found that the HPV vaccines were safe and caused no serious side effects. Vaccine recipients experienced pain, swelling and redness at the injection sites, however. Vaccine Safety Datalink studies from more than 600,000 HPV4 doses administered showed no increased risk for Guillan-Barré syndrome, stroke, venous thomboembolism, appendicitis,seizure, fainting, and allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis.
However, immunizations in general in preteens and teenage patients, especially females, has been associated with fainting, suggesting that patients should remain seated for a few minutes after vaccine administration.
The HPV vaccine does not contain thimerosal.

Readers should know that Barbara Loe Fisher's organization, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), is not associated with the US Government. In a press release, the Institute for Science in Medicine (an independent group of physicians and scientists) called the National Vaccine Information Center "a powerful, non-governmental group that has opposed vaccine campaigns for decades....the NVIC website... spreads misinformation and unfounded fears about vaccine safety and effectiveness."
Readers wishing to "research" vaccines would be better served by investigating the resource at the National Network for Immunization Information (NNii)
NNii is dedicated to providing the latest scientific information on immunizations to the public, healthcare providers, policy makers, and the media. Neither NNii nor its sponsoring corporation, I4PH, accept any financial support from the pharmaceutical industry or the federal government.
