Does anybody agree with me about the HPV vaccine?

by Rachel on September 6, 2011

I think that the vaccination should be given to older teenagers at the age of about 15-17 first, and then work down to the younger girls. It’s been given to 12-13 year old girls now and the older girls have to wait up to three years. I think this is wrong because older girls are more at risk! It’s less likely that 12-13 year old’s will be having sex. Does anyone agree?
It is not mandatory in the UK, it is a matter of choice but schools offer it.

sorry but i don’t think it should be mandatory for anyone. there are older girls are will remain virgins till marriage. and there are younger girls who are getting treatment for std’s at the age of 13. what kind of society are we to mandate a vaccine on all members of society no matter what their beliefs are.

dosent the vaccine help your immunit, for like ten years than completely gives up making you even more susceptible to HPV? If i was a girl, i just wouldent have sex! Im a boy and i dont have sex! the world is too messed up to be sticking your weenie ANYWHERE!!!

I agree, they should give it first to the teens with the higher risk, the older girls, then go back and start giving it to the 12-13 year olds.

Spot on!

I don’t think it should be mandatory, but I do think that it should be available to those who want it, whether they are 12 or 17. Personally, I have HPV that could have been prevented had the vaccine been available to me. I would have wanted to get it, and I want my daughter to get it. Some girls wait for marriage, but I do know that realistically that may not happen and even then you don’t know what the significant other has been into.

i completley agree, i just wrote a paper on the vaccine, it is only effective for 5 years maximum, most young girls (10,11,12) might not even have sex for more than five years, so pointless, but Merck&co/Gardasil is makin the big bucks!

It’s true. Why not give it to 8 year olds first then.
