HPV Vaccine No More Painful Than Other Shots

Reports that injection sting is excessive disputed in U.S. study

FRIDAY, Oct. 23 (HealthDay News) -- There have been reports that injections of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine are especially painful, but a new study finds that they don't hurt more than any other shots.

Researchers at the University of North Carolina discovered that most parents of teen girls who got the HPV vaccine said their daughters didn't experience unusual pain compared to two other kinds of injections -- tetanus boosters and meningococcal vaccinations.

The study was released online in September in advance of publication in an upcoming print issue of the journal Vaccine.

"Some stories about HPV vaccine side effects and pain have been downright scary. However, most parents in our study reported their daughters experienced the same amount of pain or even less pain from the HPV vaccine compared to these other vaccines," study co-author Paul L. Reiter, a postdoctoral fellow, said in a university news release.

The authors also discovered that women aren't avoiding the vaccine because of fear of pain. Teens who reported experiencing pain were no less likely to finish the three-dose regimen than those who didn't.

Study co-author Noel T. Brewer, an assistant professor of health behavior and health education, said that the findings could combat the myth that the vaccine hurts more than others.
