BREAKING: CDC Backs HPV Vaccine for Boys
FoxNews ^

Posted on 10/25/2011 12:58:48 PM PDT by Scythian

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory panel recommended Tuesday routine vaccination of boys ages 11 and 12 with Gardasil, which protects against infection from human papilloma virus. The panel unanimously approved the plan, with 13 votes in favor and one abstention.

The panel also advised that vaccinations with Gardasil begin in boys as young as 9 years old.

The recommendation, from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, elevates the urgency placed on immunization against HPV, one of the most common sexually-transmitted diseases and a major cause of cervical cancer. Previously, doctors were free to use the vaccine in boys, but the panel had stopped short of proposing routine vaccination.

But of course. Rick Perry’s misadventures have set Merck back at least 18 months on the break-even point for Gardisil. Gotta make up for lost time, ya know.

Naturally the Obammunists believe that in the new gay-friendly America, little boys will be equally likely to engage in unprotected sexual activity as little girls.

When do we wake up from this national nightmare?

Exactly right, HPV doesn't cause heart disease, the simple lack of Magnesium and Pottasium do, and it's very wide spread. Magnesium basically staves off diabetes too. Coq10 is an antioxident for the heart, it basically missing in those with heart disease. No, HPV doesn't cause heart disease, being unhealthy does, and by unhealthy I mean the lack of magnesium, pottasium, Coq10.

Ah, let's see.

From the Gardasil page:

INFORMATION ABOUT GARDASIL

http://www.gardasil.com/hpv/hpv-types/hpv-transmission/index.html?WT.mc_id=GL0EU&MTD=2

In boys and young men ages 9 to 26, GARDASIL helps protect against 90% of genital warts cases.

So, we should vaccinate males because it helps protect against warts?

they tried to push this on my 11 yr. old son last month.

I said no, and it has nothing to do with the controversy about what it’s for...and everything to do with gardisil sending his older sister into convulsions.

There is something nasty in that stuff.

This is all about how much Gardisil does Merck need to sell to unwilling customers on the Government’s dime in order to recoup their R&D costs. And how much more they have to spend bribing politicians to get there.

GET THIS:

another key benefit of routinely vaccinating boys could be preventing the spread of the human papilloma virus to others through sex - making up somewhat for the disappointing vaccination rate in girls.

Sales are down folks, gotta force it on the boys now ... The girls were smart enough to avoid it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Breaking? I know this idea has been on the table for months. Not sure if the CDC has always been on board, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

let’s see what kinds of reactions these poor boys have to it now.
There is a lag time, where the company claims everything is fine - until there are enough recorded “incidents” whereby they are forced to include it in their “possible side affects” literature.

So watch out. One day they will set up a program and assume general consent unless you specifically object in writing.

well - so far - no matter what the shot is, the doctor will say “here’s what we’re doing today...”
They give me a form to initial beside each shot - and then the nurses come in.
This is true, even for the “required” shots.

SOME forms of genital warts transmitted from male to female can cause cervical cancer. Gardasil DOES NOT protect from ALL genital warts. Gardasil also DOES NOT protect from HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes 1 and 2 and on and on. Someone going to tell these little ones this information, probably not. Another sad day for children.

At what point did it become the government's job to see to it that drug company coffers are perpetually full? This is a disgusting abuse of power. If you have to force something on the population through mandates, fear tactics, and media blitzing, it just isn't "good enough" to waste tax dollars on. If it is "good enough", the people will demand it. The system is simple and I am sick and tired of the "too big to fail" politicians hell bent on making their cronies wealthy at the expense of the well being of our nation's children.

Prevalence of HPV is not the same as cervical cancer. HPV is in roughly 50% of the population. Cervical cancer effects a few thousand each year.

In 2007 12,280 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer, 4,021 died from it.

More than 100 types of HPV exist, about 3 can cause cancer.

Source for this info is the CDC.

Merck is a HUGE funder of leftwing causes, especially environmental ones through their Merck Family Foundation or whatever.

They stand to gain tens of millions or billions from mandates.

It was not that long ago that I was a sex starved teen wanting to "do it" with just about any girl that passed my way. But does anyone else see something extremely wrong with vaccinating against STDs? If you don't stick your needle in a cesspool of disease you probably won't need to get stuck by a needle of toxic drug coctail.

I could care less if they invent all types of crazy drugs to do just about anything. Want to melt your face off, feel free. Just keep that crap away from me and my kids. No more government mandates!

More than half of all Head and Neck cancer diagnosed now is caused by HPV. Warts on your weenie=cancer in the other person depending on where the contact is - Cervix, throat or anus. Also causes cancer on the weenie.

If our Liberty is NOT ABUSED by demanding, under law, that all boys be vaccinated for HPPV, then how is it that Liberty IS ABUSED if it be demanded, by law, that all single men abstain from sexual intercourse before marriage? Why is one a horrible intrusion on our Liberty, and the other not? Both have at their source the intent to foster “public health” and to defend the benefit to us all that that is.

Any takers?

I’ve thought, since I bothered to understand the issue, that if these people were serious it certainly SHOULD include boys. Boys are carriers, I don’t see how you can cure a disease by only inoculating 1/2 of the carriers.

When your little girl grows up and marries some young man who may have been sexually active and gives her HPV. Then she developes cervical Cancer. You be sure to tell her that you were against the vacine that could have prevented the Cancer.

But hey it SOUNDS good as a Perry attack point.

And I bet ANY Doctor that provides HPV vacines is in the pocket of Merck AND a Perry supporter RIGHT.

Since the shots cost $360 maybe you could join the protest in NYC saying big pharma wants young women to get Cervical Cancer.

Merck must have really spread some money around the CDC.

What's wrong with a little crony capitalism? NBC's Nightly News had a story about the first link on Monday.

Troubles With Heart Are Linked to HPV

Erin Allday from the San Francisco Chronicle wrote:

"But boys tend to be the source of HPV infections in girls, so federal public health authorities hope that by vaccinating them, too, that girls will get additional protection from the STD.

"'There's been a disappointing uptake in teenage girls,' said Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, in a media teleconference this morning. 'In addition to a direct benefit for boys, there's also the potential that vaccinating boys will reduce the spread of HPV from males to females.'"

I sense a bias against heterosexual boys, IMHO.

There's at least one former grunt who wished he had Gardasil before he went to Vietnam.

I just made this comment on the other thread about this:

The reality is that only homosexuals get anal warts or whatever this drug is supposed to protect from. The assumption with this vaccine is that a huge number of these boys and girls are going to be hedonist little vermin having sex with anything that walks, crawls or breathes. The reality is that abstinence works - every time it’s tried! Really! Humans are not beasts of the field that must rut on some other beast whenever the thought crosses their minds! Add to this that there have been a lot of stories of very bad reactions to girls that had this vaccine. When my kids were small, there were vaccines against polio and DPT, I think that was about it. Now there’s 20 odd diseases. I survived mumps and measles just fine. And who knows how some of the crap in these vaccines affects some kids. Now they want to give kids a vax for a disease they can ONLY GET if they act like sluts or marry someone who acted like a slut.

I’ve got an idea - teach the kids about all the horrible diseases they can get acting likes sluts with graphic photos and descriptions. Real “sex ed”!
