I saw this on the news this morning, has anyone else seen it?

Moms of boys, would you do this?

Moms of girls, have you?

Yes, I plan to have my ds9 and ds11 get this vaccine. Dds 21 and 19 already have gotten all three. I'll probably do ds11's series starting with his annual physical this April. I need to check and see if our insurance covers it, but I'll do it either way.

I have all boys they are 3 and 8 so I got some time to decide. Will need to see more research probably but at this stage I am so far away from thinking of them ever having relations. oh hoping they wait until they are at least out of my house so thinking of vacinating at 11 for something they may get from relations just seems like the last of my worries. Sure if I had girls I'd probably view it different and who knows how I will feel when it comes time

I was really positive that my DD would get it until I read this article a few months ago...

10 Common HPV Myths -- Busted!

Now I'm just not sure of the effectiveness and timing. I have a few years, so I'll have to keep up on the research as it comes out. I'm leaning toward having them all immunized still - I'm a "better safe than sorry" kind of girl - but I just can't say with 100% certainty at this point.
