Very Interesting

This whole HPV vaccine is getting a lot of attention, and for good reason. I will have my girls (12 & 15) vaccinated, but I don't think I agree with mandating it. Unfortunlately, too many people view having the vaccine as promoting promiscuity.

HPV not only can cause cervical cancer, but also can lead to infertility. If 1 in 4 women from the age of 15-49 has been infected, it tells you that the virus is pervasive.

Can boyes be vaccinated?

After all, they are as much a part of the problem as girls are. They just don't suffer the same consequences.

i wondered the exact same thing about boys getting the vaccine. they are able to spread it to girls and yet suffer no symptoms or other consequences from carrying HPV. it seems more like condoning the sexual promiscuity of boys to mandate that only girls get the drug. women paying with their bodies for the mistakes men make...not completely unheard of.

Apparently gay men in the UK have been trying to get the vaccine under the radar. Makes perfect sense that they would want it too. I wonder why this isn't being marketed to both boys and girls?
