HPV Vaccine

Federal vaccine advisers are beginning the debate whether the HPV vaccine , that helps protect against STD’s and cancer should be used more widely in boys and young men.

Concerns about whether to vaccinate against an STD are made even more charged because a more serious disease can result from homosexual sex. Another topic is that if boys are getting vaccinated, how much would this divert resources from the vaccination campaign for girls. Some of the advisers debated whether preventing genital warts in me is worth the expense.

Either way the HPV vaccine is beneficial. It is ultimately up to the parent or the individual to make the call.
