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.
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.
about the same as Cervical Cancer.
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.
Remember in CA they just passed a law allowing them to give the shot to girls without the parents permission or knowledge.
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.
“There is something nasty in that stuff.”
Check out what Merck employees have to say to each other about Gardasil and their own operation.

Why kill little girls when you can kill little boys too?
Wow. Do they use force or expel the girls if they don't cooperate?
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.
Do not want.
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.
In just the year Sept 2010-Sept 2011, 23 deaths in young women were caused by Gardasil, as per FOIA documents produced by the FDA in response to Judicial Watch’s request.
Just think, if Perry wins the WH, all of his blunders in Texas (TTC, Giardasil)will become national problems. Don’t think for a moment that it isn’t being considered.
Both of my sons have had the series of shots (15 and 22).

This tells me the pharmaceutical company that manufactures the vaccine is a (rich and) powerful lobby.
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.
Don’t bore these dolts with facts, it will only confuse.
Most are too anti-Perry to except facts.
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.
Put them in jail for bribery.
What's wrong with a little crony capitalism? NBC's Nightly News had a story about the first link on Monday.
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”!
Merck is a big funder of leftwing causes.
