Absolutely. If it prevents any cancer, why not?

The HPV vaccine actually protects against four of the most common strains of HPV which cause cervical cancer. It won’t protect her from any other cancers since HPV is partial to the tissue of the cervix. It’s a great idea to get the vaccine. Until you meet someone who has suffered from cervical cancer, you will never understand how much this vaccine means in preventing pain and suffering.

As for those who think it may promote promiscuity among young girls, think twice about your stance on this matter. HPV is usually lowest on the list of concerns for any girl thinking of/currently having sex. If they do become sexually active, they have already decided the risk of HIV and pregnancy was not enough to scare them! HPV is not a big deal to them because they probably aren’t aware it even exists. Do your daughter a favor and get her vaccinated – 99% of all cervical cancer is caused by HPV!

No, I’m not going to have my daughter get it. HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that causes cervical cancer. I plan to teach my daughter morals, not to sleep around, as I was brought up with morals myself.

I definitely believe in most vaccinations, my kids are immunized from everything else. This is one vaccine I don’t believe in.

No vaccines contain many toxic chemicals. They are not tested for carcinogenic potential, and they do not always “protect” for what they are supposed to. There is mercury and fomaldehyde in vaccines…. NO THANKS. Also girls died from the vaccine, not exactly safe.
