The HPV vaccine is one of the safest and most effective available.

Hiding in the herd is a reality if you do not vaccinate without a medical reason. Not BS.
Heh as if they were fooling anyone.

He's right. Like the anti-vaccine church in Texas that set up vaccination clinics when it was involved in an outbreak.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...break/2693945/

"At the Texas church, the visitor infected not only the congregation and staff, but the church's on-site day care center, according to an announcement on Eagle Mountain's website. Health officials notified the church of the measles outbreak Aug. 14, and the church sponsored a vaccination clinic Aug. 18. Eagle Mountain also scheduled a vaccination clinic Sunday."



It would help to know what the "scary reaction" was. Febrile seizures can be very scary but are not a reason to stop vaccinating your child. My granddaughter had one during a simple respiratory illness. Her frightened parents called 911. Now when she gets a vaccine her temp is monitored and she is treated to keep it down.
Why? Does it matter? What is scary to one person is not to another. What could KILL one person, would be fine for ANOTHER.

Re HPV vaccine: the fact that it is targeted at boys makes it quite clear why it exists.

Well, no.

If you or anyone else wants a vaccine? GO get it. Get 100. Get a 10 a day until you die. No one cares how many vaccines YOU decide to get for YOURSELF. Go to CVS everyday of your life.

But if someone says no, I don't want one? I don't care either. It's their own choice

But you sure care. A lot about what other people do. /shrug/

It matters because if it’s just a matter of parental fear and not actual harm to the child, they are eligible for the vaccine.

Parental fear isn’t a reason for a medical waiver. (And before I get attacked, I am not talking about Kara or her daughter’s situation, but medical waivers in general).

It’s targeted at boys to protect them from getting penile cancer (and other cancers) from HPV. Isn’t that a good thing??

Great, just don't expect to go to public school and you will be fine.

Considering Iíve gotten vaccines for myself and my kids Iím not sure how I could be considered to be anti-vaccine. Such narrow mindedness.

The risk of any serious adverse reaction to a vaccine, much less a fatal one, is about one in a million. Most of those are severe allergic reactions, which can be treated. Such a reaction is a legitimate reason not to receive any more doses of that vaccine.

HPV vaccine is for both males and females, so I am unclear what point you think you are making.

I mean vaccines have saved more human lives than perhaps any other invention in the history of man.

Seems like a cause worthy of shilling.

Clean drinking water has saved more human lives then perhaps any other invention in the history of mankind. Funny how we donít see anyone shilling for clean water.
