Gardasil- There are over 30 types of human papillomavirus (HPV) that will affect an estimated 75%-80% of males and females in their lifetime. For most, HPV clears on its own. But, for 30 women a day in the US (about 11,000 a year) certain types of HPV lead to cervical cancer.
Other types of HPV can cause genital warts in both males and females. It is estimated that each min in the US, there is a new case of genital warts.
young girls and boys can now be vaccinated between the ages of 9-26.
Is anyone planning on vaccinating either their son or daughter with this? Why or why not? I do plan on vaccinating my children.
