i totally agree with you on the HPV being mandatory. I can not fathom how they can make mandatory a vac for soemthing that is only contracted through sexual relations.
that is not to say i am against the HPV vac, because im not, really.
I let my oldest daughter do her own research, talk with her doctor and make her own decision on if she will be having it or not. She decided to go ahead with it. i let it be her choice, as i had done my reasearch on it, weighed all the pros and cons, and decided that if she wanted it, fine, if not, fine.
i will also let my other two make that decision as well.
as for the vacs when they were babies, i CHOSE to have them all. and the chichen pox vac was required in illinois for them to start school here.....all of them have been exposed to chicken pox ....my oldest daughter was the only kid in preK who didnt get it, and hadnt had it..... none of them have ever had it. i would have rather they had it, thought that is still a possibility.
but anyway....if they push to make the HVP mandatory, i will push back on that one.
