I wanted to see what everyone's opinions were with regards to the HPV vaccine. For some reason, I just have a bad feeling in my mommy gut that I can't get rid of, so hence my boys have not had that vaccination. I was talking about it with the pediatrician, who was fine with whatever I decided. I don't have an issue with regards to what they are trying to prevent, I know how easily HPV is transmitted and realize that my boys will be having sex and at risk one day. There is just something about the vaccination itself that I'm just not comfortable with, so I was hoping that I could get some opinions from others on their feelings/research.
Has your child/children been (or will be) vaccinated for HPV?
What are their ages?
What are your reasons for having/not having them vaccinated for HPV?
