ANOTHER vaccine?

You knowGardacil,  the vaccine for females that is supposed to help prevent herpes and cervical cancer?  Did you know that they are now recommending it for boys, too?  Supposedly it is supposed to help prevent more than just cervical cancer, also penile, anal and oropharyngeal (back of the throat) cancers. 

Would you/have you gotten this shot for your daughter?  Would you/have you gotten this for your son? Also, do you get your child vaccinated as a general rule, or do you avoid vaccinations as a whole?

Here's a link to the CDC website for more information:

Neither my girl or boy will be getting this vaccine. I don't think it is safe (according to what I know about it so far).

Nope no one is getting this vaccine. It's too new and no way to know if it's completely safe

This isn't new.  We will not be getting it for any of our kids.

Have they received any other vaccines?

Quoting rosie211:

None of my children will get it under my order. If they want it they can get it as adults. Too new, and I don't quite trust vaccines and how many they think we should give these days..

I vaccinate, but I will not be getting my son this one. Unless there are some significant findings in its favor in the next 10 years.
