80% of cervical cancers in developing nations and over 266,000 women die from this each yr. I know the Christian fundamentalists will make a fuss over this, but bet not one of those men would complain if this were a vaccine to prevent prostate cancer.

You are old Elbert. That is the age at which the vaccinations are most effective, prior to the girls becoming sexually active.

'estimates suggest that universal HPV vaccination of all girls aged 12 years using existing national immunisation or child health programmes could prevent 690,000 cases and 420,000 deaths worldwide over their lifetime'

Here is more information since you are curious. Most breast and cervical cancer deaths occur in developing countries, yet many could be prevented with cost-effective interventions [url=][/url]

MOH and Human Development only held back by a few US funded Evangenitals. We are ahead of the curve. The Fundies about 2016 yrs behind..

Yes, vaccination definitely needs to be *before* girls become sexually active.

They should be vaccinating the boys of this age also. It is a series of injections over a 6 month period. Boys also suffer from cancers related to HPV.
