Doc Talk: Info on Gardasil vaccine


This video feature allows moms to listen to the opinions of local doctors, nurses and specialists about a variety of topics. We took our video camera to Mercy Health System of Northwessmallelizabeth-thompson-pa.jpgt Arkansas and asked some of the questions moms are most interested in, and we taped the answers so we can share them with you.

This week Elizabeth Thompson, a board-certified physician assistant, gives us some additional information about the vaccine for HPV called Gardasil. She discusses the vaccine schedule as well as possible side effects. Elizabeth Thompson, P.A.-C, is currently working with Dr. Randall Feezell at the Northwest Arkansas Gynecology clinic, located in the Mercy Physician’s Plaza in Rogers.
