Remember the big to-do about the cervical cancer vaccination for 12-year-old girls?
We have all slept since then, and the now 23-minute news cycle has moved on to young Hollywood’s rehab stints and other socially important happenings, so I can sympathize if the vaccine, Gardasil, sounds more like a plant nutrient stick than a three-cycle injection.
However, with school starting again soon, I’m wondering if parents are opting to have their doctors go ahead and give their daughters the vaccine as part of their regimen of back-to-school immunizations? Are parents insisting this be part of the cocktail, although not required to enroll? Are doctors pushing the vaccine? Does anyone care anymore?
