Thought it would be nice to look at the info available in the time frame that Perry made his Gardasil decision, circa 2007/8
Witches often get it.
Warty lot, them witches.
If you don't want genital warts, stop having sex with toads. It's that simple.
Although I have no love for Merck, if this vaccine can help prevent yet ANOTHER sexually tranmitted disease, why would anyone NOT want their child protected. I agree it should not be forced on Children, but to withhold this vaccine because you don’t like the delivery system is just plain cruel.
“Condoms offer little protection against HPV since any skin-to-skin contact can result in transmission of the virus.”
You almost never hear or read this.
The vaccine is formulated for four strains of HPV. There are over 20 strains of HPV. Therefore, yearly paps are still required to catch HPV regardless of vaccination.
Ofcourse. Any woman that doesn’t have Pap’s is asking for trouble.
I tried to highlight it in asterisks, but the first two paragraphs are from CDC
The following “Transmission in General” is from that website.
They seemed to parallel each other even though the info in the CDC report was 2004.
From the report:
“Genital HPV infection also may be transmitted by non-sexual routes, but this is extremely uncommon.”
Which states were or now currently persuing HPV Vaccination legislation.
Exactly, that is why parents should inform themselves as to all the pros and cons.
At the very least you need to know the side effects. What if it is a life threatening se. I have problems with some meds. I have to monitor very closely side effects.
More than once I’ve called the Pharmacy to have them tell me stop taking the medication and call your Doc.
WHY would someone not take that same precaution with their own CHILD.
10 years ago my doctor wanted me on Avandia the latest.in diabetes treatment. Look at it now! Instead of muting the commercials for most prescription meds especially the new ones they have more side effects than curative.
I fear this vaccine may be to sterilize our children versus saving their lives.
Transmission from more to less frequent
common: Promiscuous sexual contact
common: monogamous sexual contact with unaware infected partner
less common: oral sexual contact
less common: birth transmission
very rare: hair follicle
possible but unproven: object contact
It strikes me as a Dad, that my daughters have a chance of getting HPV, even if she isn’t sexually promiscuous. This is especially true if she thinks her husband is uninfected but he doesn’t realize he is or has lied about his own promiscuity.
I would worry about my daughters.
In short, I’d accept the immunization and not pursue the opt-out were I a resident of Texas. As it is, I’d recommend the immunization to them.
Since they can be infected through no unethical sexual activity of their own, then they need to be protected.
This does not advocate sexual activity for girls. It advocates caution.
Therefore, both Bachmann and Santorum are wrong. (Palin, too, if she piled on....and her kids would be prime examples of those needing protection.)
Bachmann claims to speak for the “little girls”...well, I speak for my “little girls” and the cancer is worse than Bachmann’s being down in the polls.
Shouldn’t that be a decision made by you and your physician? Why should a state government or the federal government have any input?
Therefore, that makes it unknowingly communicable.
It's not the same as the flu, but it sounds more communicable than syphilis which has long been a legitimate target of government control. Nonetheless, this does show that someone could make a mistake on this and have it be based on over-protectiveness and not on big-government advocacy.
I’m against this being a mandatory vaccine myself, but where was everybody when every state mandated hepatitis-b vaccines and then started giving them one day after birth?
