Dear Mr. Harper,
Came across this post, my 13 year old daughter who received HPV vaccination few months ago has started developing sudden onset of alopecia, and i am certain it was triggered by the vaccine. I definitely would like other parents to be aware of this side effect and I do not know where to start. I would appreciate any help regarding this.
Kind regards
Jaya Kamath
