Is the HPV vaccine safe?

Q. My 13-year old daughter was offered the HPV vaccine last year, but I’m concerned about its safety and question whether she should have the vaccine at such a young age. Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. There are 6 million new cases of HPV per year. Of these cases, 75 percent occur in people between the ages of 15-24.
