Mandating hpv vaccination dating site in qatar
In last night's GOP presidential candidates debate, Rep. Rick Perry for his 2007 legislation mandating, through an executive order, that the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine be given to young girls in his state. "It's a violation of a liberty interest." The HPV vaccine protects against strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer.
And to have innocent little 12-year-old girls be forced to have a government injection through an executive order is just flat-out wrong," Bachmann said during the debate.
But there's so much misinformation out there that leads people to make the wrong choices for themselves and their children," Offit said.
Bachmann perpetuated that misinformation when she implied later that the vaccine could cause permanent harm to children, Offit said.
The issue of whether to mandate the HPV vaccine has spurred debate for years.
Some have argued the vaccine may increase sexual activity among adolescents, or that it counters messages of abstinence education.
