NYT: Study Weighs Risks of Vaccine for Cervical Cancer

The New York Times has an article about vaccines to protect against cervical cancer. A recent study shows the vaccine has about the same amount of risk as any other vaccine. (So if you’re OK with getting, say, a tetanus shot, then you should have no prob with this.)

The vaccine, called Gardasil, “was approved for girls and young women ages 9 to 26 and is recommended for routine vaccination of girls 11 and 12.”

The decision to get vaccinated for HPV (and cervical cancer) is an important and personal matter. It’s nice to have this information so that you can make an informed decision.
