HPV Vaccine Side Effects in Boys and Girls?

A federal committee voted to recommend that boys and young men, from age 11 to 21, be vaccinated against the human papilloma virus, commonly referred to as HPV vaccine.
What are the side effects of the HPV Vaccine in young boys and girls? Because I've read about the risks of it in grown women and men but what about little children?
There has been so much debate and controversy about the HPV Vaccine possibly causing autism and even some deaths.
What are the pros and cons of the HPV vaccine in boys and girls? Is there an age limit for getting it?

The side effects of the HPV vaccine can be dangerous, especially in boys and girls. There have been reports of dangerous blood cloths, permanent disability and even deaths. You can read it in detail here > cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/vaccines/hpv/gardasil.html.
According from the people who is suggesting it, the controversial HPV shot given to girls should also be given to boys, in part to help prevent the spread of the virus. Apparently they don't care about the side effects.
Doctors argue that by attacking the human papillomavirus, the vaccine could protect boys against genital warts and some types of cancer.
The CDC estimates that about 20 million Americans are infected with HPV.
The recommendation by the panel is likely to transform the use of the HPV vaccine, since most private insurers pay for vaccines once the committee recommends them for routine use.
