And to get things back on track…..
Here is SaneVax'es take on HPV vaccine. It does link some of its sources of information, but I want to hunt down where they got the info that the vax only last 5-6 years from!
ETA: found it. This site said Gardasil was only effective for about 5 years. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/prevention/HPV-vaccine
Why on earth are we giving it to 9-12 year olds, then? If you look at this table on wiki, about 50% of people are virgins at18. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolescent_sexuality_in_the_United_States
It might make sense to wait until your daughter is older to give the vaccine, or (shudder) give one at 9-12 and one later on? Say 5 years later? Just speculating.
