Mandating hpv vaccination

Unlike the Gardasil-based vaccines, Cervarix does not protect against genital warts.On October 25, 2011, an advisory panel for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) voted to recommend that the vaccine should be given to boys ages 11–12.

Traitorous bureaucrats in the state of Rhode Island are attempting to force 11-year-olds to be vaccinated for human papillomavirus (HPV) in order to attend school, and this even applies to those who attend private school.

This has sparked outrage among parents, doctors and lawmakers alike.

From a public health point of view, vaccinating men as well as women decreases the virus pool within the population, but is only cost-effective if the uptake in the female population is extremely low. In early 2013 the two companies who sell the most common vaccines announced a price cut to less than $5 per dose to poor countries, as opposed to $130 per dose in the US.

As with females, the vaccine should be administered before infection with the HPV types covered by the vaccine occurs.

They are recommended for women who are 9 to 25 years old who have not been exposed to HPV.
