HPV Vaccination--Is it safe for your daughter?


I know that some vaccines may be necessary, however, I am not a big fan of having my kids vaccinated for diseases that aren't at big risk for. Let's see--is my 10 yr. old sexually active and taking drugs....or will they be in the next 5 years? Probably and hopefully not! Maybe when they are headed off to college I'll rethink it.

I am fearful of vaccines like the HPV for girls that was rushed onto the market and advertised as a necessary vaccine to prevent cervical cancer. Was it tested long enough? Do all girls really need it?

Here is a little video with Katie Couric reporting on the dangers of this HPV vaccine.

As a parent we have the right to say NO to vaccines. If we don't feel right about it, then do your research. It is your child's health!
