HPV vaccine for boys has ‘good start’ in 1st year
Imperial Valley Press Online

When the HPV vaccine was first recommended for boys, health officials worried it would be an unusually hard sell. But a new report suggests that might not be the case. About 1 in 5 boys got at least one of the recommended three doses last year, relatively good for a new vaccine aimed at adolescents. The shots are largely intended not to protect boys from disease, but to stop them from spreading a sexually transmitted virus to girls that could cause cervical cancer.
