... Cerival cancer declined from 1955 to 1992 by 74%, yes 74%! This was way before a vaccination from introduced. Only 3% of women get the two cancerous strand that this vaccine MAY help protect against, but even the manufacturer admits that not everyone is guaranteed.

... I don't really think they even need the shot unless they're sexualy active.
but you're the parrent so i guess it depoends on how much you trust them.

... Just a guess here but I would think that the clinical trials revealed that getting the vaccine in the deltoid muscle was more effective than giving it in the fatty tissue.

... Gardasil is NOT to be used if you already have HPV!!!
Your doctor is lying to you (or, is not up-to-date on his/her medical education).
Gardasil is no better than getting regular Pap testing (in fact, it is still recommended even to those that get this new vaccine). Too many think this is a vaccine against cancer and it is NOT.
Gardasil isn't for you. Don't... (6 replies)
... Gardasil does not get rid of any HPV infection you already have! I didn't see any mention of that here so I wanted to make sure you were aware. It will protect you from getting certain types in the future, but will not eliminate what you already have. Just FYI. (6 replies)
... Kirsten, check with your local health dept as most vaccinations are free through age 18 and if there is a charge, it will most likely be much less expensive than at a physicians office.
