Q. Should I Vaccinate My Daughter Against HPV?
I have a 12 year old daughter. Her School wants all the girls aged 12 and up to be vaccinated against HPV. A lot of Parents are against this vaccine. I want to know more about this vaccine and if I should vaccinate my daughter.

at the bottom you will also find links in english. vaccinations in general are very disputable/dubious and it is probably time that we learn about it.

|A3||The Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is a vaccine that targets certain sexually transmitted strains of human papillomavirus associated with the development of cervical cancer and genital warts. Two HPV vaccines are currently on the market: Gardasil and Cervarix. The vaccine, protects against four HPV types, which together cause 70% of cervical cancers and 90% of genital warts. The vaccine is given through a series of three shots over a six-month period. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection, and ideally, the vaccine should be given to women before they become sexually active in order to ensure maximum benefit, therefore is recommended for 12 year olds. |
