I'd been wondering why they were only vaccinating girls, when boys are a transmission vector.
And if you were trying to wipe out a virus, wouldn't you want to eliminate the source and all.
Logically, if you want to protect your girls, you need to vaccinate the boys too, no?
Is not a single-gender virus.
I just came across this:
"HPV vaccine will eventually be available for boys and men ages 9 to 26
because the Food and Drug Administration approved it for prevention of
genital warts in October."
Well, that's nice.
Wouldn't want them getting warts on their little heehaws in the course of transmitting potentially lethel germies….
