Gardasil's Adverse Effects

A report on CBS this evening interviewed several young girls and their families who reported serious side effects from taking Merck's Gardasil. The effects ranged from seizures, to heart problems, to death. The CDC's report on side effects indicates that:

As of August 31, 2008, there have been 10,326 VAERS reports of adverse events following Gardasil vaccination in the United States. Of these reports, 94% were reports of events considered to be non-serious, and 6% were reports of events considered to be serious.

Most news outlets haven't picked up the story yet, but here is one link:
