I took my daughter to the doctor 2day for her 9 yr old check-up, they offered to give the vaccine, say they can as early as age 9. i didnt allow it bc i dont think its time, maybe b4 she goes to middle school, but not now. what do u think?

I am totally against this vaccine! There have been very serious side effects including neurological problems. I just watched a video on You Tube, you should look for it. The vaccine also has not been fully tested and the long-term effects are not yet known. The very best way to protect your daughter from cervical cancer is to encourage her to have regular pap tests.

That seems a bit early to me. I would go with your gut on that one. By the time my daughter is old enough (she's a newborn), I'd hope to know what she's doing enough to feel that she wouldn't need it.
