Autoimmune disease risk following quadrivalent HPV vaccine/Prevention and Public Health Funds(PPHF)

Quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV4) is recommended for males and females 9-26 years of age. Pre-licensure trials for HPV4 did not find an imbalance of autoimmune diseases between study arms, however, associations between rare adverse events and the vaccine in these trials were difficult to detect due to limited sample sizes. Many autoimmune diseases manifest during the young adult years; it is important to assess if there is an increased risk of incident autoimmune disease following HPV4, which is recommended just before adolescence.
