Did you or would you let your Daughter or Son get the HPV vaccine ?

Just read an article on AOL & I was interested in your opinions. It's only been on the market for 4 years.

Wondering also at what age do Dr.'s start recommending it for boys & girls?

  • No and no. They were trying to push it on me when I took her in to get her TD booster. The others will not get it either.

  • No. My oldest (now 18) had two friends who had it at 14 and both had seizures in the doctor's office. So dd read up on it and flat out refused to get it. Dd #2 has been thinking about it for the past two years, but she doesn't think it's worth the risks. They just started asking dd #3 when she was 10, but she's not getting it either. It doesn't cover all strains and the risk outweighs any possible benefit, imo.
