Should Boys Get HPV Vaccine, The facts: About half of adult males in the U.S. are infected with HPV. Some strains, they passed women through sexual contact, can cause cervical cancer. HPV can also increase the likelihood ofanl and penile cancer in men, and can cause genital warts. The FDA has already approved the vaccine for children. However, the CDC is still deliberating on whether children should be vaccinated. An important decision in the process that is expected at a meeting next month.
As we have written, some public health problems cost of this, as the immediate benefit to children is not as clear as for girls and the vaccine is expensive. But if the point of a vaccine is to eradicate a major health risk, vaccination of children would actually make it more efficient.
And vaccinating children may also help mitigate some of the irrational stigmatization of the vaccine. The last couple of weeks have shown how far you can go to talk about the government injections of girls were supposed to start on sex. For better or for worse, there is almost the same concern of society for children.
Dr. Rodney Willoughby of the American Academy of Pediatrics told the Huffington Post, “Measles used to kill one in every 150 children. The elimination of measles, elimination of polio, rank up there among some of the great advances 20 century century physicians. Similarly, HPV is a highly lethal virus that kills one in every thousand people, so why not get rid of it if you can? “In the last weeks of politicking Bachmann and Santorum about the vaccine, said, “There is a direct and measurable result of this absorption: It means that only 35 percent of the current birth cohort will be protected from a cancer that kills 1000 of them, and that is a pity. “
