HPV is the leading cause of cervical cancer but though the is a known fact, many parents are weary about the need to allow their kids to get HPV Vaccine. Parents see this as a license to become sexually loose.
According to Dr. Sarah Bosslet, Witham Health Services Pediatrician at the Indiana State Department of health, the main concern of parents is the official recommended age that children are allowed to get the HPV vaccine. Kids between the age of 11 and 13 are considered the most susceptible to the HPV virus and thus getting vaccine a that age will help to prevent the HPV related cancer in children.
He added that “The purpose of the HPV vaccine is to prevent cancer, cancers of the throat, the cervix and the anus. The vaccine is extremely effective. It drops those rates of cancer by anywhere from 80 to 90 percent”
