U.S. advisers recommend Gardasil HPV shots for boys
Yahoo ^ | October 25, 2011

Posted on 10/25/2011 1:58:49 PM PDT by NYer

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Boys should be routinely vaccinated against the human papillomavirus or HPV in an effort to protect them from oral, anal and penile cancers, and to extend protection of girls from cervical cancer, U.S. vaccine advisers said on Tuesday.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which advises the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, voted unanimously to recommend routine use of Merck & Co's Gardasil in 11- and 12-year-old boys to fight the sexually transmitted virus, with 13 yes votes and one abstention.

Previously, the CDC had said doctors are free to use the vaccine in boys but had stopped short of recommending routine vaccination.

Boys aged 13-21 who have not been vaccinated should be given a catch-up dose of the vaccine, which is given in a three-dose series. Men aged 22 through 26 may be vaccinated but the vaccine is not recommended for routine use, the panel said.

Currently, the CDC recommends HPV vaccinations made by Merck and GlaxoSmithKline for girls and women between the ages of 11 and 26.

The prior recommendations were based largely on evidence that the vaccine protects boys from genital warts but the new recommendations reflect several studies showing the vaccine helps prevent cancers in boys as well, Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said in a conference call with reporters.

The HPV vaccine offers an opportunity to decrease the burden of HPV in both males and females, Schuchat said.

"In addition to providing a direct benefit to boys, there is also the potential that the vaccine will reduce the spread of HPV from males to females," she said.

Doesn't anyone ever looking at existing Breaking News before they post Breaking News?
 
BREAKING: CDC Backs HPV Vaccine for Boys
 
 
And besides. This is hardly breaking news.
 
Anyway. Carry on.

So the translation is this?

We should assume that all young people will act like dogs in heat and spread STD's around at random. We shouldn't even try to teach them to save sex only for the person they are married to.

Just out of curiosity, what are the odds of contacting an STD from a partner who is faithful to you when you are likewise faithful to them?

You know, if I made something that probably wouldn’t make you sick, but no guarantee. And it probably would be a benefit, but no guarantee.

I’d pay lobbyists to be sure that the government coerced people into using this product.

These shots cost like $136 each imagine how much money they want mandated from the government.

Merck is a huge funder of leftwing and eco-nut causes through its foundation too.

The background of this has been triggered by the data which showed that the primary cause of throat cancers is oral sex not smoking. And the NY public school system has decided to offer how to do it comprehensive sex education

If you live in NYC I’d check this assertion out then start to raise hell. Because this is why there is a push for this by legislators and school superintendents

I don't live or even work in NYC but appreciate the implications raised by your comment. How Bloomberg was ever allowed to run as a Republican is beyond my comprehension. Since being elected mayor, his left wing agenda of implementing a nanny government, has raised the shackles of many NYers. Pendulums swing. I still hold out hope for NY.

Am I wrong but shouldnt this be reccommended to homosexual boys?
A straight boy isn’t likely to perform oral or anal sex.

Why should straight boys have to get this vaccine?

It has been theorized that the Reason Perry and his backers are so adamantly for amnesty and open borders is that they are on something.

And they don't want the price to go up.

None of which negates the health hazards from Gardasil, which poses risk with no possible payoff for chaste people.

1) Its a whole new market $$$

2) whether or not theres any benefit to boys its only right that they should share the risk. or so say the freaks that decide whats best for us.

I guessing there are few of those.

Ever seen anyone die from cervical cancer, sir?

Your *theory* on Perry is mostly BS. You live here and should know that.

Chaste people?

I guessing there are few of those.

Some people assume all other people are like themselves, and upon that basis assert they have a right to make potentially life altering decisions for them.

You have certainly revealed the basis for your personal authoritarian views.

I believe in the principals of freedom. Even the right to be free from hedonists trying to construct a safe sexual playground for themselves. I don't need drugs that are not entirely reliable and safe to protect myself not my progeny from sex we aren't engaged in.

Sorry my beliefs that you and people with your mindset do not have a right to subject me or people like me to unnecessary treatments to make us into safe potential sexual toys for you and people with your ideals.

For the record, I am all for letting those who refuse to curb their appetites encounter whatever consequence that has, and take or not take any precautions they desire at their own choosing.

Your desire to use the armed force of governmental power for that purpose is not aligned with the values of this site, wolfcreek. Mandated Gardasil is not okay.

I didn't say anything [nor did this article] about letting the governments dictate/mandate what drugs would be required for me or my prodigy to consume. You made a WRONG assumption.

If you think humans can all be chaste and we'll never have to worry about such diseases, you are the epitome of ignorance. We are merely animals with animal instincts as much as we would like to think otherwise.

I'm not saying this particular drug is good or bad but, reality rules the day. These diseases are a fact of life and due to their potential spread, we must be vigilant.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

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"!

nail on head, instead of trying to promote this kind of perverted diseased sex then the Govt needs to be telling the public the diseases, life expectancy, the dangers etc.

Straight boys perform oral sex on straight females, and vice versa.
It is not a gay thing.

Even if I had gotten all the sex I was wishing for back in high school, I still think my risk for anal cancer would have been zero.

People of either sex who live according to Judeo-Christian Biblical morality do not need these vaccines.

Believe it or not, millions of people used to live according to those rules. They were happy, and produced millions of happy and healthy offspring.

meanwhile the Govt bans inhalers for those with Asthma and who really needs to have those inhalers to save their life.
WHY? Because this Govt says it is ruining the ozone level

On top of that this is the same Govt which bans inhalers and tells us this for boys but their dear leader drives around in a massive RV with 15 SUV’s following him in order to get votes and we pay the gas.

Nah no hypocrisy there, inhalers bad, SUV’s and RV’s good, get these shots good but be faithful bad.

This Govt has lost their frigging mind and so has anyone who backs this Govt and that goes for the radical left wing element.

I have two daughters who went to High school in the late 1990s.

According to them, other kids were substituting anal sex for regular intercourse in order to from getting pregnant.

I don’t know how widespread this practice was but, it’s pretty telling.

We can only imagine what they’re doing today.
