My daughter took the series of Gardasil vaccinations when she was younger. At 16 became diagnosed with hypothyroidism and shortly after started suffering from depression. At 18 she was hospitalized with severe depression. I never linked Gardasil to any of this until now, and I do think it effected her health greatly...in a negative way! If her pediatrician had not pushed it so much, I would not have had her vaccinated! I wish I had it to do over!
