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?
It is so convenient that the news on every channel was how HPV caused heart disease yesterday, we aren’t being played or anything, nah, I must look for better quality tin foil.
At this point, I think only the sound of gunfire will wake us up.
This sounds like the PC crowd at the CDC. The boys will probably
get the shot in their eyeball.
Drug Kingpins and their whores, What a class act.
As if we didn’t know this was coming.
The ‘cure’ is worse than the disease.
From the Gardasil page:
INFORMATION ABOUT GARDASIL
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?
A vaccine is breaking news?
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.
BREAKING: CDC Backs HPV Vaccine for Boys
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.
The USSA is no longer a place to raise children. I mean that. Responsible parents should go to Latin America, Asia, even Africa. Go while it’s still legal. And while there’s still a few nations America is not attacking.
